When the Southwest Microwave RPM II extension is installed, Security Center can receive notifications and state changes from the perimeter protection units that connect to an RPM II device and send commands to outputs.

Components

The following components are required for a Southwest Microwave RPM II integration:
  • Security Center expansion server that runs the Southwest Microwave RPM II extension 3.0. The extension provides the user interface and enables communications between Security Center and the Southwest Microwave RPM II devices.

    In Security Center, the Intrusion Manager role receives events from the Southwest Microwave sensors and inputs, reports them live in Security Desk, and logs them in a database for future reporting. The role also relays user commands to the devices, such as arming and disarming the intrusion detection areas and triggering the outputs. For example, when Security Center receives a master armed event from an intrusion detection area, an event-to-action triggers an output, which turns on an alarm bell.

  • Remote Polling Module II (RPM II) is a self-contained device that polls all INTREPID™ Series II sensors and auxiliary devices that connect to its communications port for status. The RPM II communicates this information to the Southwest Microwave RPM II extension over a TCP/IP network.
  • UIST II and CST II are the software provided by Southwest Microwave to deploy the Southwest Microwave sensors and auxiliary devices.

Any of the following INTREPID™ Series II sensors are supported by Southwest Microwave RPM II extension 3.0.

MicroWave 330

A volumetric perimeter detection system for fence lines, open areas, gates, entryways, walls and rooftop applications. For more information, see http://www.southwestmicrowave.com/products/microwave-sensors/microwave-330/.

MicroPoint Processor Module (PM II)

The processor for the fence-mounted perimeter intrusion detection system. For more information, see http://www.southwestmicrowave.com/products/fence-detection-systems/intrepid-micropoint2.

MicroTrack Processor II (MTP II)

The processor for the buried cable intrusion detection system. For more information see http://www.southwestmicrowave.com/products/buried-cable-detection-systems/microtrack2/.

The following INTREPID™ Series II auxiliary devices are supported by the Southwest Microwave RPM II extension:

Relay Output Module II (ROM II)

The ROM II provides relay outputs so that Security Desk operators can send commands to actuators, and thus control lights, motors, locks, and audio signaling devices like buzzers and alarm bells. For more information about the ROM II, see http://www.southwestmicrowave.com/pdfs/558-Relay-Output-Module-II-EN.pdf.

Alarm Input Module II (AIM II)
The AIM II provides inputs so that Security Desk operators can monitor other types of sensors, such as movement detectors, magnetic sensor switches, and doorbells. For more information about the AIM II, see http://www.southwestmicrowave.com/pdfs/557-Alarm-Input-Module-II-EN.pdf.

I/O response latency

INTREPID II inputs and outputs have a response latency of one to two seconds. This latency is sufficient for most applications.

However, when you need to capture rapid consecutive changes to input states, you might need to use faster I/O devices. Examples of applications that require a response time under one second include doors being opened and closed rapidly and motion sensors that detect constant movement.
