Configuring Paradox EVO192

Paradox EVO192 can connect to Siwenoid through a Paradox PRT3 interface modul. It ensures an RS-232 connection to Paradox panel. Most of newer computers haven't got any serial (RS-232) connection. That's why we need a TCP-IP to RS-232 converter. In this configuration tutorial, we will use an ATC-1000 converter.

Configuring PRT3 panel

The PRT3 module has to configured through WinLoad software. In the Programming/Partitions tab check all the partitions and zones that you want to control and monitor through Siwenoid.

In the Programming/Options tab in section [016] Serial port setup options be sure to check everything as on the picture.

Connecting by ATC-1000

ATC-1000's default IP address is: The default port is: 23.

We need to connect it to the computer, and type this ip address in a web browser. To enter the configuration site enter the username and the password. (Default username: admin, password: system) If it allowed to access, click on "UART" menu on the left side of the site. To set up the connection between ATC-1000 and Paradox EVO192, enter the following settings:

Mode: RS232
Baudrate: 2400 (must be same as in the PRT3 configuration)
Character Bits: 8
Parity Type: none
Stop Bit: 1
Hardware Flow Control: none
On Delimiter, leave blank all checkboxes.

To set ATC-1000's IP address, click on "Administrator" menu on the left, and "System IP Configuration" menu. Enter the correct values you want to use.

To set the communication's port, click on "TCP Mode" menu. Enter the required port number to the "Data Port Number" field.
Note: Using DHCP, you should enter the IP host address in Siwenoid each time, when ATC-1000's IP address changed.

Connect the ATC-1000' serial port to Paradox PRT3's serial port with a standard cable.

Setting up in Siwenoid

In the software File-Settings-Physical structure, Click on the + icon to add a new container.

Enter a chosen name for the Paradox panel. Select "Paradox" in the Type, and "Paradox" in the Protocol dropdown list.

The Host field must be the IP of the ATC-1000's IP address, just like in the Port field.
In the User code field type a user code configured on the Paradox panel.

After you finished the configuration. Turn on the communication on the upper right side of the window. Siwenoid now starts communicating with Paradox EVO192.
You should now be able to browse datapoints.
