Traceline Integrator

Traceline Integrator

Traceline Integrator is a product that extends the functionality of the KC software RCS9500. Traceline Integrator therefore acts as a kind of “shell” under which the RCS9500 client runs. Note that the features available in each individual installation of Traceline Integrator are controlled by a license file. To access currently unavailable features, contact TC Connect for more information

-Automatic alarm and status display
-External relay
-Automatic change to speech group in case of alarm

Automatic alarm and status display

Automatically view the status history of devices at incoming alarm. This function also serves as another indication informing the user that an alarm has been received.

The alarm window appears when an alarm is received. Except for ISSI, Mnemonic, time it also shows history of the most recently received the status messages.

The alarm window appears in a separate window above the RCS9500.


External relay

When an emergency status is received, the external relay on the SAM box can be activated.

This can then can be used to control any kind of external equipment, such as a flashlight.

The external relay is activated upon incoming alarms and deactivated when the user press the Close button in the alarm information window.


Automatic change to speech group in case of alarm

This feature allows the RCS9500 to automatically activate (select) the talk group that the alarming terminal has selected.

The advantage of this is that the operator can then immediately listen and speak on this talk group without that further actions are needed.

RCS Logbook is a feature that collects most events in the RCS client and saves them to a database so that they can be displayed afterwards

The logbook is displayed by clicking on the intended button in the RCS9500 or by right clicking the Traceline Integrator icon in the system tray and select

Traceline Alarm Receiver

Traceline Alarm Receiver

The application is based on TC Connect’s solution Traceline Web and Traceline Web Integrator, which is an application / service where devices of various kinds are positioned on a map and where alarms and other important events can be displayed and managed. In this case, the application has been tailored to handle alarms for one device at a time. For security reasons, positions and alarm information are only stored locally on the computer. However, the equipment has an Internet connection, but this is only used to download map material from Google Maps, software updates and, where applicable, for remote support. Remote support must be initiated by a physical user at the local computer for security reasons.

Receiving alarm
1. An emergency alarm is sent from the Tetra terminal
2. The alarm is received by the alarm receiver
3. The alarming unit is shown on the map (if the terminal has GPS location) and in the unit table.

Normal procedure for incoming alarms
1. Click Acknowledge in the alarm presentation to silence the sound
2. Click on the terminal in the Device Table to center it on the map (or right click and select zoom level)
3. Manage the alarm via local routine
4. When the alarm is managed, exit it by clicking Exit in alarm presentation

To view alarm history, click the History button in the alarm presentation.

To view an alarm position on the map, first select the alarm in the table and select “Show highlighted alarm” on the map from the Map menu.

To delete the alarm history, select “Delete alarm history” from the Other menu.

The map is based on Google Maps. Functions includes zoom, pan (move map) etc. Support is also available for Google StreetView.

To create a report of incoming alarms, select “Export History” from the menu.
The file is saved in CSV format (semicolon separated) and can therefore easily be imported into Excel or optional text editor.
