PostX DIN Rail IP Reporting Module


The ICT PostX DIN Rail IP Reporting Module is designed to allow the open establishment of TCP/IP internet based alarm communication and converts any standard ContactID alarm panel to an IP reporting device with full polling and PSTN backup options.

Key Features:


Install between the phone line from your existing alarm or dialing solution and insert the PostX DIN Rail IP Reporting Module. Connect the 10/100 Ethernet to a suitable source and you are ready to go with a simple configuration interface accessible from your web browser.

Line Emulation Interface

The PostX DIN Rail IP Reporting Module features a full SLIC (Subscriber Line Interface Circuit) that emulates any PSTN phone line:

  • Indication is provided when the panel goes 'off hook' and begins communication
  • Interfaces to any alarm or CID product and provides full phone voltages
  • Full CID receiver emulation
  • PSTN pass through allows temporary reconnection of panel to phone line for remote programming

IP Reporting Formats

The PostX DIN Rail IP Reporting Module is an open solution that does not rely on custom or proprietary receiving equipment. Ensuring a multiple sourced solution that is compatible with a large number of central stations:

  • CID over IP using standard text based sending
  • LS-30 Patriot IP receiving task
  • CSV-IP direct with user authentication
  • Report directly to ArmorIP with connection to any standard Ademco 685 compliant interface
  • TCP and UDP transmission


  • Encryption available with many configurable options to allow a client to secure their own solution using their own keys
  • Industry standard AES encryption
  • Configurable from 128, 192 or 256 Bit


A complete embedded solution, the PostX DIN Rail IP Reporting Module can be installed within many different industry segments.

  • 10/100 Ethernet interface compatible with many new switches and internet cabling standards
  • Full MDIX Ethernet interface
  • Indication of data transmission and link up
  • 4 inputs with 2 configurable outputs allowing 2 way communication
  • Small physical size allows placement inside existing alarm control cabinets or automation enclosures

Backup Communication

  • Onboard modem allows downstream backup and communication using existing PSTN solution
  • Phone and account number replacement options
  • Backup on PSTN link in the event of Ethernet reporting failure

Onboard Input/Output Control

  • 4 inputs, each of which can be independently configured to send ContactID message or emails when the input state changes
  • 2 programmable outputs that can be used to indicate when communication errors occur, or to activate bell sirens, lighting circuits, door locks, relay accessory products and other automation points
