DMS8000 - Fully scalable and open for the future

The open architecture and scalability of the DMS8000 Danger Management System allows complete integration of subsystems as well as the construction of small to large applications.

A local configuration for a small-sized application, e.g. a single building
The solution for small-sized applications is a single workstation containing all software levels from client to server and communication.

A LAN configuration for a medium-sized application, e.g. a campus
For medium-sized applications, a client/server architecture can be implemented: multiple operator workstations can be connected via Ethernet(LAN) to a central server.

A WAN configuration for a large application, e.g. a company with branches in different cities.
A distributed client/server architecture is ideal for large applications with multiple operation responsibilities: A server station provides communication and background functions to one or more networked client workstations connected via WAN. Since the server co-ordinates all activities, many operators can seamlessly co-operate on the same site. What’s more, the buildings do not even have to be geographically close, but can be located far apart – even in different cities. For increased reliability, network connections can be backed-up by modem connections.

Redundant systems

DMS8000 featuring a dual-server architecture: a redundant solution matching the most challenging fault-tolerant requirements.

Based on open standards

Whether hardware or software, the open architecture of DMS8000 is based on the latest standards: standard PC hardware, Microsoft Windows Vista, MS-SQL server databases, OPC, BACnet, TCP/IP networks, and the AutoCAD drawing format. Because it is an open system, third-party subsystems can be integrated cost efficiently via a generic OPC client.

Expandable to meet any requirement

The DMS8000 system can be easily expanded: additional management stations or subsystems can be added at any time necessary. Whenever needs or requirements change, DMS8000 can be easily adapted and modified.
