System 2000X Application Toolkit

Door List

Security electronics systems require the close integration between many subsystems including HMI (Touchscreens), PLC's, Intercom, CCTV, Card Access, Radios and more - all of which may be manufactured by different vendors / suppliers utilizing multiple communication and connection methods. This can lead to difficult and complex configuration, maintenance, troubleshooting and future changes or expansion.

System 2000X was conceived and developed by Status as an integration toolkit package in close cooperation and consultation with many security system specialists and end users as a special needs solution for detention facilities. Common requests and requirements of many facilities across North America were studied and integrated into the package. The system was developed from the ground up with a full menu of features in mind constantly aware of the need for highest performance, system stability, and ease of operation.

Innovative configuration methodology provides the system with many desirable features. The use of a third party platform for point management, device communication, database driver, and graphical interface provides the end user with an open system architecture on a Windows platform. With this structure changes to the system can be undertaken by any trained system administrator. More importantly, custom source code has been replaced instead by specialized configurations menus, screens and an open source database.

Integration with PLC's and other I/O structures, IP based CCTV Systems, CCTV switches, Intercom and paging systems, Personal Alarm Transmitter systems, card readers and more are all supported. Unlimited I/O, and operator interface configurations are possible, including multiple monitors per PC, touch screen interface and redundancy for servers, network, and media.

Special system utilities have been developed to aid system administrators in the routine maintenance tasks, trouble shooting, and as required, in implementing changes, adding computers, stations, monitors, and new or revised points.

In addition to utilities, Status has developed unique control icons, embedded controls and a portfolio of screen concepts that have been implemented on many projects.
