Our gateways allow 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.
We have module solutions which allow integration directly into Silent Knight products as well as the stand alone solutions shown bottom right.
Depending on project requirements select from units with varying resources. and multi port devices. OEM and embedded solutions too.

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.
The driver can process the following commands / queries
o General System Status
o System Trouble Status
o General Zone Status
o Expanded Zone Status
o Zone Description
o Output Group Status
o Output Group Description
o Point Status
o Point Description
o Time Status
o gateway Version
o Disable Point
o Enable Point
o Reset Alarms
o Time Synch
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 CAS for FST – Get exert support from day 1 with CAS.
