  • V-Plex support

    Hi Mark,

    I've started playing with some V-Plex devices and they seem real nice. Fast response, very flexible wiring, plenty of inexpensive stock on Ebay too Unfortunately AD2USB doesn't seem to be able to decode VPlex just yet.

    I've taken a snippet of a vplex door sensor toggling on/off and sent it to Sean:

    That's zone 085 with serial number A0138449, toggling normal-fault back n forth. I hope it's very similar to RFX so it's a breeze to support!

    Hi Mark,

    Does this plugin + AD2USB support VPlex yet? I've emailed nutech support (and Sean) and have received zero response so far. I thought it would already be supported, since I've sent him a VPlex module way back in '12 for him to test. I mean, it's a core protocol for 128 and 250 series.

      Short answer, No.

      from your sample msg you will notice that zone 085 isn't identified in the msg like normal devices.

      [1000000100000000----],000,[f71300040000001c08020000000000]

      typically the zone number is located in the second component where 000 is located

      I'll check in with Sean and see what he thinks.

        Hmm that sucks. Will it help if I feed more panel output to decode the numbers?

        A. The same module attached to different zones (zone 1-8)
        B. Different modules attached to zone 1

        (The modules have serial numbers like RF ones)

        I have quite a few v-plex modules.. I can try to find one with 'good' number, if that helps in trying to find patterns..

          Leo,
          I got a little insight from Sean about this issue. The v-plex modules operate on a different bus than standard devices. thus the v-plex msgs aren't even seen by the ad2usb. so we don't need any more data/logs.

          I wouldn't hold out hope that v-plex deivces will be supported

            Oh geez that would suck, since V-Plex are integral part of Vista 50, 100, 128 and 250 and they're listed as compatible boards in AD2USB. How much of an effort is this? By 'operate on different bus', did you mean that there's more info that AD2USB didn't capture?

              Vplex support

              It has been a while since an update. I recently got an AD2USB that is now loaded with the software to read the Vplex bus. I don't care to control the alarm system functions from HS3 -- just see all of the events.

              According to Sean at NuTech, the message formats are the same, they are just in a "read-only" mode and there is no interaction with the panel other than the stream of events.

              I have chosen this path because I have a significant number of zones (>100) that I want to be able to trigger on. I'll let my Vista 128 panel do the alarm management.

              Also, I am a software developer and am happy to help out to get this up and running.

              Thanks,
              Craig

                what do these new vplex messages look like?

                  I'll hook it up and get some samples tonight. According to Sean, the message interface is exactly the same as the normal console messaging you use.
