An overview list of the 'I' interfaces, the different inputs, sensors and the audio zones in your project are easily overviewed in the different available lists. These lists are shown in the 'list interfaces' window. Click in the main PROSOFT menu 'Edit', 'Inputs and others' and select the desired on-screen overview list.
There are different lists which can be displayed:
- In the first part of the first column there is the software address of the concerned 'I' interface. PROSOFT adds the letter 'I' to remark that it concerns an input interface.
- In the second part of the first column the input interface group abbreviation is displayed.
- the name which you have been giving to the interface.
When the desired 'I' interface is found, you can select it and the line becomes blue when selected. The following actions can be taken starting from this list:
- Click on the 'New' button to add an extra 'I' interface to your project.
- Click on the 'Edit' button to open the 'Define Interface Function' window where you can change the settings of that interface.
- there will be made a copy of the selected interface. All settings, except for the address, are kept.
- Click to remove the interface from your project. Be careful, there is no undo button for this action, but PROSOFT will ask for a confirmation before it is finally removed.
- this abbreviation defines that the item displayed on that line is an input.
- the input number is divided into two parts. The first part is the AUTOBUS address of the digital input interface. The second part is the individual input number on that input interface (for example '4' is the fourth input of 8 or 16).
- contains the name you have been giving to this individual input...
When the desired input is found, you can select it by clicking on it and it will turn blue. The following actions can be done after selecting the input:
- to add an extra input to the project.
- Click on the 'Edit' button to go to the 'Define Interface Function' window to be able to change the parameters of the individual input.
- defines whether it concerns a sensor zone ('SEN') or audio zone ('AZN').
- shows the number which was given to the sensor or the audio zone.
- contains the name you have been giving to the sensor or audio zone.
When the desired sensor or audio zone is located, you can select it by clicking on it and it will turn blue to confirm that you have selected that line. The following actions can be done in this case:
- to enter an additional sensor or audio zone.
- Click on the 'Edit' button to change the parameters of a sensor or audio zone.
