FIGURE 1 EM15 receiving alarm signals from your contact-ID alarm panel and transmitting IP signal to your PC running free server software from Micro Seven, Inc.

Micro Seven, Inc. model EM15 contains alarm receivers, simulated telephone line and Ethernet/Internet interface for interfacing to your alarm panels with Contact-ID protocol directly without using any telephone lines. Handshake and kiss-off tone generation are all included. It transmits ANSI/SIA DC-09 formatted digital alarm messages to digital alarm receivers over Internet in TCP or UDP protocol.



-use Internet instead of telephone line

-TCP or UDP selectable

-free IP proprietary DC09 server software included


Micro Seven, Inc. model EM15 provides Ethernet interface to any Ademco Contact-ID alarm panel supplying loop voltage and loop current. EM15 also provides interface signals that are necessary for receiving alarm signals from alarm panels.  EM15 transmits ANSI/SIA DC-09 formatted digital alarm messages to digital alarm receiver. Setting up server IP addresses, port addresses, and receiver numbers are programmable via network (see below for detail programming).

An alarm panel goes off-hook, receives dial tone, and dials a number. The alarm panel receives handshake signal from EM15, and transmits alarm signal to EM15 in DTMF tones. EM15 transmits kiss-off tone to the alarm panel. Then EM15 transmits DC09 compatible alarm messages in TCP or UDP protocol.


Packets transmitted by EM15 in contact-ID mode:


(CRC codes) “ADM-CID”) (event sequence number)(receiver number)(account pref.)(account number)(alarm events, zone, partition)(MAC address)(time stamp)<CR>


Detailed IP transmission information in TCP and UDP protocols:


Internet/Ethernet communication path is created by EM15 after receiving calls from alarm panels and transmitting packets for alarm receiver server. Internet functions included: DHCP-client, TCP-client, DNS, SNTP-client, and ICMP-server

Unique MAC address for each EM15

Time stamp data from remote SNTP server is translated to UTC(UK time).

It includes DYNDNS updating feature to allow remote EM15 programming.


Simulated telephone line interface:

Loop voltage and loop current

Dual frequency call progress tones (dial tone and ring back tone)

Handshake and kiss-off tones

Kiss-off hold until receiver server receives messages and sends with ACK signals.

Telephone line interface type: FXS (simulated telephone line)



History file


History file, which shows received 16-character long Contact-ID message with UK date and time and sequential number is created automatically inside EM15. About hundred messages are stored inside EM15


Factory default condition may be set after dialing a special sequence


The factory default condition includes the following:

TCP operation instead of UDP operation.

Transmission of identical packet for server 1 and 2

Email transmission

Time stamp

V field

MAC number of EM15




ANSI/SIA DC-09, 2007, 2013

DC-05 digital communication standard (contact-ID)


IP server Windows program:


It is provided as a free demo IP server Windows software program receiving proprietary DC09 IP messages. 



Detailed programming software for IP parameters

The screen shot of the programming software is shown below. Programming of alarm sequence number, receiver number, account prefix, programming data, server IP addresses, IP port numbers, selections of adding MAC address and time stamp, Programming data field, email, multi-line port(not shown) and other features is available. Selection between TCP and UDP is available in a different screen.


Ipprog3.exe for programming DC09 parameters, selection of TCP/UDP, history file output to PC file, email parameters, V field programming and selection, P field programming and selection, IP server/receiver selection, etc. The first screen shot is shown below:
