WebXL Master Controller
The WebXL Master Controller is an optional unit that is used as a front end for multiple WebXL Controllers. It can make tasks much easier and quicker to accomplish.
For example, one function of the Master Controller is to allow for system wide broadcasts of holidays or time schedules.
This means that instead going to each controller and entering in the same time schedule you can go to the Master Controller enter the time schedule and it will then send this information to all controllers on the network and the time schedule will be in the controllers.
Another function of the Master Controller is to list all the drawings on each controller in the system which means that you can go straight from the Master Controller and open a drawing on another controller.
Consider an installation of a number of WebXL controllers without a Master Controller. In order to view a drawing, for example, you have to remember 2 things:
1) What controller the drawing is on
2) The controller’s IP address.
This can be quite difficult and error prone especially as the more controllers there are the more IP addresses you would have to remember. To solve this, the WebXL Master Controller lists all the drawings on all the controllers in the system.
The Master Controller can also list all the alarms that have gone off in the system which means a user can acknowledge all the alarms in the system at once instead acknowledging them on a controller by controller basis.
With the addition of a GSM modem, the WebXL Master controller can now SMS alarms to mobile phones!
The Master Controller will allow for the creation of drawings that use points from other controllers, so for example, There are three controllers (named C1, C2, and C3) and one Master Controller.
You require a drawing on the Master Controller that contains nine points: three from C1, two from C2, and four from C3.
This is easily achieved with the Master Controller. This way you can monitor, a whole buildings temperature, floor by floor on the drawing, or a total site overview drawing.
The Master Controller will make a system with multiple controllers much easier to use and will save a lot of the user’s time, thus allowing the user to dedicate more time to other tasks.
