External Alarm box was required to be connected With N2000BMS so that when any alarm appears on NMS should appear on alarm box and it should sound the type of that alarm e.g. major or minor and vice versa. In the main window of N2000BMS client there is option of “fault”. When we clicked this tab, “synchronize alarm box data” was not appearing however this option should be there if alarm box is ok and if it it is connected properly.
The Version which we were working on are as below.
N20000BMS version: V200R012C05
Universal alarm box version : WD2G1ALM
OS: Microsoft windows server 2003 R2 (Enterprise Edition, Service pack 2)
Please follow the below methods :
1.if the option “synchronize alarm box data”doesnot appear on fault tab of the main window of N2000BMS then go to following directory and open file: client\style\defaultstyle\conf\fault\faultboxsetting.xml in the installation directory and modify ‘faultboxinitflag.xml’ value to true.
<DESC descname="faultboxinit" >
<PARA name="faultboxinitflag" value="true" />
2. Repeat the same procedure for client\style\all users\conf\fault\faultboxsetting.xml
3. After restarting the client N2000BMS can synchronize the alarm box.
4. Now, if alarm box is not showing audio and visual indication then follow the following guide.
next we have to follow the proceedures mentioned in the Alarm box Hex file burn with following guidelines.
1.Install tool flashmagic(extract files):
2.Make connetction between PC serial port and alarmbox serial port.
3. Make isp jumper wire short.
4.Run isp tool flalshmagic.exe.Configuration according to the diagram and guide attached.
5. Burn the attached Hex file.
6.Power on the alarmbox.Click start button to burn the file.
7. Pull out the jumper wire. Reset the board.
8. When all finish,two leds(D41 and D44) would flash.
The pictures of configurations are attached along with a guide book.
The problem was because of the false value of faultboxsetting.xml.so, it need to be changed.Secondly, there was some issue in alarm box therefore a file wd22alma.hex was burnt on alarm box using flash magic software.
For Alarm Box integration with any server, either it is N2000BMS or N2000UMS, there are two steps of configuration required. One at the NMS end to make it compatible with alarm BOX and second to burn a file on alarm BOX as mentioned above. We have followed this SOP on both of the servers N2000UMS and N2000BMS, it worked well.
