SP100 SignPrinter® Interface

When the National Weather Service sends out emergency alerts, the Alert Eagle®400 (AE400) automatically decodes the messages, matches and translates them and sends them to the FipsSender™ for immediate transmission to signboards, emails, wire text, printers, buzzers and strobe lights.

The AE400 transmits the messages through your LAN/WAN network and the FipsSender™ software to the SignPrinter® Interface (SP100), which outputs the data to LED signboards and printers. Click HERE for a system overview.

How the SP100 works

  • Upon receipt of a message, the SP100 beeps 20 times, flashes a strobe light and closes a relay, which turns on the system.
  • An LED indicates whether the unit has power.
  • The SP100 will send a message back to the FipsSender™ software indicating whether the LED signboard acknowledged the alert.
  • The SP100 saves the most recent alert in nonvolatile memory at the remote location for diagnostic purposes.
  • Pressing the “Last Alert” button allow you to play back the most recent alert to the LED signboard and to the printer.
  • Pressing the Reset button resets the LED signboard to normal messages, turns off the strobe light and opens the relay, turning off the system.
  • Pressing the “Test” button closes the relay, turns on the strobe light, starts the alert beep sequence, sends a test message to the LED signboard and printer and flashes the alert LED.
  • Each SP100 requires a unique, static IP address.
  • The strobe can be set by the user, in software, to turn off between 1 second and 18 hrs after an alert.
