The SELCO M1000 Process Alarm Monitor is a compact 10 channel programmableunit with many eatures. An input signal originating rom a potential ree contact,normally open (NO) or normally closed (NC), will cause the appropriate alarmLEDs to lash and simultaneously the related output will activate. The internal sirenrelay will be activated on the detection o every new alarm.The M1000 unit has indications o frst alarm, ollowing alarms and acknowledgedalarms and possibility o cable ault indication. Multiple M1000 units can beinterconnected to orm a large-scale alarm system.Alarm related parameters like time delays, reset unctions and other eatures canbe conigured by use o 16 programming switches. Alternatively, the M1000 canbe conigured via the built-in RS232 interace rom a standard ANSI / VT100terminal, e.g. a PC with the HyperTerminal application (which is a part o theMicrosot Windows operating system).The M1000 can be conigured or cable monitoring (indication o cable breakand/or short-circuit), and it can be conigured to monitor its own supply andinsulation level.The M1000 is also equipped with a built-in RS485 serial communication interace.The RS485 interace supports the standard MODBUS-RTU protocol, enablingremote equipment to read and write alarm and LED states.
Flush mounted unit with standard measurements of 144 x 144 x 35mm, available with
protection degrees IP32 or IP54 at the ront.
The unction described in this sectionassumes that the M1000 unit has beencongured or deault operation – all theprogramming switches are ON and theE²PROM is reset using PC based con-guration.A potential ree contact connected to oneo the 10 input terminals will cause theappropriate alarm channel to activate.The activation o an alarm is indicated by a fashing light in the related LEDsand the activation o the related opencollector output.
First incoming alarm is indicated with a
quick fashing light, ollowing alarmsare indicated with slow fashing light.The LEDs will keep fashing until thealarms are acknowledged, even thoughthe signals have been disconnected romthe input terminals.Pressing the RESET button will acknow-ledge all new alarms and all LEDs willchange to steady light, provided that

the related input signals are still presentupon acknowledgement. Pressing theRESET button will also cause the sirenrelay to deactivate.Each open collector output will stayactive as long as the related LEDs are lit.
SELCO is widely known or its line ogenerator controls. But the M1000 is notonly intended or use with generatorsets; today thousands o M1000 unitssurvey alarm points all over the world.The M1000 unit has been installedaboard ships, at chemical plants, atnuclear acilities and many other placeswhere clear and concise alarm monitor-ing is absolutely vital.The M1000 is a versatile andprogrammable process alarm monitorand controller. It can be used or shut-ting down alarm dependent equipmentcontrolled by the unit’s open collectoroutputs.Multiple M1000 units can easily beinterconnected to orm a large-scalealarm system. A number o M1000units can also be used as part o alarge computer based alarm systemwith RS485 / MODBUS based buscommunication.Still, the simplicity can be maintainedwith the text label based design. Besidesinormation on active alarms on the textlabel, you also have inormation onwhich alarms to expect.
