Galaxy

From HSYCO
Jump to: navigation, search

The Honeywell Galaxy Dimension panels are multi-area intrusion detection systems.

The integration with HSYCO can be accomplished via RS-232 serial connection and has been tested with firmware version 6.80.

Communication

Employ a RS-232 straight cable to connect the panel directly to HSYCO or to an Ethernet/RS-232 gateway.

RS-232 parameters:

Baud rate 9600
Data bits 8
Stop bit 1
Parity none
Flow control none

Galaxy Configuration

It is required to configure the panel for HSYCO to be able to communicate with it. Follow these instructions:

  • Enable the engineer access
    Menu 48.1.1 - set to 1 (Enabled)
  • Enable engineer mode
    Enter engineer PIN, followed by ENT
  • Enable remote access and events reporting
    Menu 56.6.2 - set to 1 (SIA)
    Set SIA level to 4
    Enable (set to ON) all the events to be sent to HSYCO
    Menu 56.6.3 - set an account number (e.g. “0001”)

HSYCO Configuration

Add a Galaxy I/O Server in the I/O Servers section of the Settings and set its parameters:

Communication

  • Comm ID: select the comm port connected to the panel.

High Availability

  • Shutdown when inactive: defaults to true.

Options

ID Default Values Description
pin <code> PIN code assigned to the “remote” user. This option is mandatory
maxzone 4158 0 ... 4158 highest zone number among the zones used on the panel. This option is recommended to improve the I/O Server's performances
maxgroup 32 0 ... 32 highest index among the groups used on the panel. This option is recommended to improve the I/O Server's performances
maxoutput 256 0 ... 256 highest index among the outputs used on the panel. This option is recommended to improve the I/O Server's performances
guiobject true true enable support for the galaxy UI object
false disable support for the galaxy UI object
guizones false true enable the zones-related UISET actions
false disable the zones-related UISET actions
guioutputs false true enable the outputs-related UISET actions
false disable the outputs-related UISET actions
startupevents false true generate IO events also during the driver’s start-up phase
false start generating events only after HSYCO is aligned with the current status of the system
pollinterval 5 n > 0 the data acquisition interval, in seconds
logsize 20 n ≥ 0 the number of log lines to display in the UI object
showall false true in the zones list of the galaxy UI object show all the zones up to the number specified in the 'maxzone' option
false in the zones list of the galaxy UI object show only the zones for which a name has been defined in galaxy.ini
dump false true write in the logs the dump of the communication between the driver and the panel
false the communication is not dumped in the logs

galaxy.ini

The galaxy.ini file is a specific configuration file located in the root directory. Here you can define the names of the zones so that they will be automatically added to the user interface. Add a new line for each zone using this format:

<io_server_id>.z<n> = <name>

For instance:

gxy.z1001 = Entrance
gxy.z1002 = Corridor
gxy.z2001 = Room 1

User Interface

Galaxy Object

The user interfacce for the Galaxy multi-area intrusion detection system:

Galaxy UI Object 1.png Galaxy UI Object 2.png Galaxy UI Object 3.png

The Galaxy object is listed in the Project Editor’s new object list only when at least one Galaxy I/O Server is defined.


Parameters

  • server id: the server ID
  • group number:
  • position: the object's position. Use the pixels or rows and columns coordinates format

Syntax

(galaxy <server id>; <group number>; <position>)

E.g.

(galaxy serverid; group number; x10y20)

UISET Actions

ID Attribute Set to
log value latest security log lines (as many as specified by the 'logsize' option)
log0 value latest line of the security log when a new entry is added, set back to blank after a short period
z<n>.name value name assigned to zone <n> or its number if no name is defined
connection.label.online visible true when datapoint connection = online
false when datapoint connection = offline
connection.label.offline visible true when datapoint connection = offline
false when datapoint connection = online
<datapoint_id>.label.1 visible true when datapoint with ID <datapoint_id> has value '1'
false when datapoint with ID <datapoint_id> has value '0'
<datapoint_id>.label.0 visible true when datapoint with ID <datapoint_id> has value '0'
false when datapoint with ID <datapoint_id> has value '1'

USER Commands

Name Param Action
g<n>.armed 0 disarm group <n>
tot arm group <n> in “away” mode

Log Files

A permanent detailed record of all the Galaxy log messages is saved in a file called security.log in the logs/YYYY directory for the current year. This file is never overwritten or deleted by HSYCO.

Other information related to the Galaxy I/O Server are saved in the daily message.log files.
