Cooper Security Menvier 100 - RDO475
The Menvier100 is a control unit for a hybrid wired/wirefree alarm system intended for domestic, commercial or industrial use.
The Menvier100 is a completely new design and offers a range of clear benefits to installers these include:
The control unit comprises a steel case containing the control unit PCB (printed circuit board), power supply and space for a backup battery.
The control unit PCB provides terminals for a single bus. The bus allows you to connect up to 45 peripheral devices using standard 7/0.2mm four wire alarm cable. The peripheral devices can be any mixture of keypads or zone expanders (for wireless or wired detectors).
The control unit PCB also provides a range of connectors for outputs, communicators, and up to 10 FSL (Fully Supervised Loop) or five 4-wire CC (Closed Circuit) zones.
The Menvier100 Release 4 uses i-kp01 keypads with software revision 3.02 and above. The keypads allow end users to set and unset the system, and the installer to configure the control unit. The i-kp01 keypad also contains an integral proximity tag reader, allowing end users to control the system without having to remember access codes.
A range of wireless peripherals is available for operation with the wireless expanders. These include a door contact/universal transmitter, a passive infra red detector, smoke detector, external siren, 4 button remote control, radio Hold Up Device and remote radio keypad.
This control unit is designed and approved to be used as part of a Security Grade 3 system. The control unit is also approved to operate as part of a Security Grade 2 system. If you install any radio devices this will limit approval to Security Grade 2 in the Ward in which they are used.
The Menvier100 provides sockets for an add-on communication module. The available modules are:
||A speech dialler and public switched telephone network (PSTN) module that allows the control unit to send recorded speech messages and report alarm information using standard protocols such as Fast Format, SIA and Contact ID. This module also allows remote maintenance.
||A switched telephone network (PSTN) module that allows the control unit to report alarm information using standard protocols such as Fast Format, SIA and Contact ID. This module also allows remote maintenance.
||A GSM module that allows alarm reporting, speech messaging and SMS text messaging over the mobile phone network.
The control unit also provides outputs that can be used to fit a “plug by” communicator.
To comply with EN50131 at Security Grade 2 you must fit at least an ATS2 communicator (for example the i-sd02).
To be approved at Security Grade 3 use the plug-by communicator outputs to connect the control unit to an ATS4 communicator.
Level Setting or Ward Based System
The Menvier100 offers two basic ways of behaving as an alarm system:
Part Setting. In a Part Setting system the Menvier100 can set in one of four ways: either Full set or three varieties of Part Set. In Full set the control unit pays attention to all detectors. In each of the three Part Sets the control unit ignores detectors that do not have the appropriate Part Set attribute.
Ward Based System. In a Ward Based System the Menvier100 provides the equivalent of 10, smaller, independent alarm systems. Each system is a “Ward” of the Menvier100. You can allocate any zone to each Ward. Each zone can also belong to more than one Ward. Each Ward can have a Full Set level and one Part Set level. During installation the installer can allocate keypads, sounders or outputs to any of the Wards.
For a detailed description of the Installer’s programming menu please read Menvier40/100/300 Engineering Guide available from the Downloads tab.
Installer Programming Interface
Once fitted and powered up, you can program the control unit through any wired keypad connected to the bus cable. The Installer Menu allows you to specify all the operating parameters for an individual installation.
If you wish, you can also program the system from a PC or laptop connected to the Ethernet port on the control unit PCB. The control unit contains a web page server, and you can use any web browser to see a complete version of the Installer menu. Please see the Menvier Web Server Setup Guide for more instructions.
In addition, it is possible to connect a PC or laptop to the mini USB port on the control unit PCB and use Cooper Security’s Downloader software to program the control unit.
Note: Some programming options can make the installation non-compliant with EN50131. The relevant options are noted in the “Installer Menu” section of the Menvier40/100/300 Engineering Guide.
