The Crow Runner’s comprehensive security
solution incorporates up to 7 access controlled points and a combination of 8
wired or wireless zones. This panel takes advantage of the latest comms
technology to exploit a 4-wire unshielded communications buss that allows
system modules and keypads to be added anywhere on the buss up to 100m from the
main control panel.

The access control element of the Runner
8 depends on this 4-wire buss. Using the buss, up to 7 addressable keypad
devices can be connected to a panel. Depending on the system layout these
devices can be LCD keypads or proprietary Prox or PIN & Prox readers. A
neat feature is that each reader has an alarm input so zones can piggyback on
prox readers for greater flexibility and in order to provide direct protection
of access points.

The system allows 100 access codes
including 80 wireless users, 100 access cards/tags, duress codes, 1 installer
code, and 1 maintenance programming code (Upload/Download code).

Of course this system is not just about
access control. The Runner is also a hybrid control panel supporting up to 8
wired or wireless zones. All zones are supervised and capable of operating
listed heat detectors, smoke detectors, alarm contacts, motion detectors, glass
break detectors, vibration detectors (1 to 8), and burglary alarm detection
devices.

The system also supports up to 8 outputs
(4 on-board (3 x open collector (voltage) & 1 x dry contact relay output
(related to output 4) and 4 on an output Relay Expander). All outputs are
programmable to activate for 1 of 20 possible options. The Runner has to be
installed with a 4 wire unshielded communication Buss that allows system
modules and keypads to be added anywhere on the Buss up to 100m from the main
control panel.

The alarm panel supports digital
communications via the built-in PSTN telephone dialler, Reporting via the GSM
cellular network is possible via an add-on module, integration to the Permaconn
GPRS network and up to 8 telephone numbers and two separate Contact-ID Account
numbers can be programmed to report the two different possible Area
Activations. The call back option provides Maximum

Upload/Download communication security.
The system dialer supports major communication formats including SIA and
Contact ID.

Programmable Events transmitted include:
fire alarms, intrusion alarms, trouble alarms, supervisory conditions, alarm
restored codes, opening (disarming) and closing (arming) codes, partial closing
codes, and opening after alarm codes. The Runner can transmit a test code to
the central monitoring station(s) on a programmable daily, weekly or monthly
mode at a preset timing.

The Runner-16 has an EEPROM memory to
store all program information including when an AC or battery power fails, a
STAY and a stay arming capability. The LCD keypad has keypad-activated
emergency button alarms for panic, emergency, fire, and duress; 2 programmable
function keys or programmable keypad functions; LED indicators for Ready,
Armed, Stay Trouble or System; and are equipped with a piezo buzzer for audible
feedback for correct key entries, pre-alert, and trouble.
