Silent Knight Fire Panel Integration

Discover Our Silent Knight Gateway!                                  240_F_30863217_90x9u7dIZJexMpPkgLRQpMlXqJN9mpgm

Our gateway allows you to integrate data from your fire alarm panels into remote systems for monitoring purposes. This way you can display fire system data on the same HMI as your operators and janitors are already watching. Fire enunciator panels often only tell you the zone. To get more info you have to go to the fire panel. Avoid this with direct integration. Our gateways can also be configured as web servers so we can web-serve the fire panel data – you get more data in front of more people without the cost of more enunciators.


The Silent Knight Gateway Command (SKgwcmd) Driver allows the FieldServer to transfer data to and from devices over either RS-232 or RS-485 using Silent Knight Gateway Command (SKgwcmd) Driver protocol.  The FieldServer can emulate either a Server or Client. The Silent Knight Gateway Command driver can serve as an active client as well as emulate a Silent Knight 5820 device in server mode. The Silent Knight unit’s serial port settings are configurable. The FieldServer device can be configured to match all Silent Knight port settings.

Chipkin Automation and Silent Knight

The serial port on the Silent Knight Unit is not addressable and the protocol does not support node identification. Therefore, only one Silent Knight unit can be connected to each port on the FieldServer.

The FieldServer Silent Knight driver was developed by Chipkin for FST – Get expert support from day 1 with Chipkin.
