The VISTA Gateway Module (VGM) provides an interface
between ADEMCO’s VISTA fire/burglary alarm system and ADEMCO’s
PassPoint Access Control System.
Cross-functional user requirements such as card swipe to
arm/disarm now become a simple reality. VGM by itself provides a Dialer
for your PassPoint system to send Contact ID information to a central
8- bit microprocessor.
EEPROM based configuration storage.
Echelon Network interface implemented with an
An ADEMCO Expanded Console Protocol (ECP) port
consisting of a four wire interconnect: power, ground, data transmit,
and data receive.
An ADEMCO Contact ID Dialer interface uses the
ADEMCO Contact ID report format to communicate with a central station.
VGM allows existing central station automation
equipment to accept and recognize access control related events and
differentiate them from burglar and fire alarm activities.
VGM accepts power from both VISTA panels and
PassPoint systems so that in the event of a power loss on either
system, the other can operate the VGM unit.
