Fire SoftwareThe Fire Software application will allow you to program, manage, super-vise and communicate with FireClass control panels.
Communicating with Fireclass control panelsIf you are using the Supervisory, Management, Downloading and LogManagement functions, the control panel must be connected to your PC (inlocal/remote communication).It is not necessary for the control panel to be connected to your PC duringthe parameter programming phase.+If you are using the Fire system supervisory function of the GMap applica-tion, the control panel must be connected to your PC. Local/Remote Communications:Using a CVSER/9F9F cable (accessory item) or similar cable (see figure1a), connect the control panel serial port (refer to “PARTS IDENTIFICA-TION” in the “INSTALLATION MANUAL”) to a serial port on your PC.2.Select the PC serial port from the Local Communication sheet (Settingparameters window).For 25 pin serial ports —- use an ADSER/9M25F adapter (accessory item)or make a cable as per figure 2b.Remote communications with Fireclass control panels require aBMOD/BMOD-RX modem (see figure 1).+If the control panel is not connected to your PC when you start the com-munication, the following warning will be shown.
+If the serial port for the local communication is invalid, the following warn-ing will be shown.Select OK to continue.
