FieldServer Driver – Fieldbus
|Protocol Documentation:||Fike Protocol Specification|
|Physical Interface:||RS-232 or RS-485|
Client and ServerThe Cheetah Protocol driver allows the Communications Bridge to transfer data to and from devices over either RS232 or RS485 using the Cheetah device protocol. The Cheetah system provides fire detection / monitoring equipment and is manufactured by the Fike Corporation (www.fike.com).The Bridge can emulate either a Server or Client but it should be noted that it can only process unsolicited messages from the Cheetah devices. Thus, it does not provide an active client driver. It is best to consider this driver as a consumer only driver with the data being produced by a Cheetah controller.
