There is hardly a home or business that does not hve some kind of a network in place or wants one or has one that needs some tuning, repair or other service. But the problem is that in this day an age there are too many network "experts" and "gurus" that have mystified the whole process and for any network service at all, you have to hire an expert and have to pay for an evaluation, estimation, diagnostics and a whole lot of other formalites before you can get anything done at all!

At CITS we make everything very simple and straight forward for you. Simply call me directly and I will fly out there and do whatever you need done at your site. All you will be paying is the cost of travel, the air fare, hotel and my per diem and then a simple labor rate of $193.20 per hour, that's it. And of course the cost of materials. Who does that nowadays? Please ask aound and find out. Obviusly I am not looking to get rich here at this point. Just to keep busy and do YOU some good! That's all. Please don't fall for that high sounding network lingo and trust my experience. I solve problems just standing there!!

Remember, the good Microsoft and other great vendors may have invented and put the network systems in place in the first place and the network gururs are great people but they will make you go thrugh a very formal and stiff process. Whereas I will get it working informally and completely before they will figure out what to do even! And I will figure out and setup the network design without even using a piece of paper and pen! Well, may be a pen and a notebook. But I will give you a write up after all is setup. Don't worry there will be some documentation!

My number is (651)442-9044 and is almost alway ON. I am looking for a PROBLEM to fix!

And I forgot to say, I work on networks Small or Lage, at home or abroad. Nothing is too small or too big. I have not said "NO" in my life yet!

Thank you.

Brief                      The Class starts with an exhaustive discussion of the system block diagram of the XLS System and its front end application program, namely the XBS System.


                                The focus of the class is system maintenance and service.  To this end the class presents a very exhaustive hardware block diagram of the system and its extensions and enhancements.  This requires a discussion of available enclosures and field and panel wiring.  Students learn to work with chassis components and internal channel and data wiring.  This is followed by local rail module discussions and wiring required therefor.  All remote devices including the signature devices are discussed next.  This process is supported by hardware exercises where students configure and wire given hardware for given fire alarm specifications.  This requires knowledge of the engineering process.  For the purpose of this class students will work with CITS generated databases.  This is the subject matter of the next paragraph.


After the hardware has been mastered the students learn system power up and testing.  This entails uploading/downloading the panels and their complete test and checkout.  Students are not exposed to the system engineering which creates up or Downloadable databases.  But they work with CITS created databases.  Please consult the engineering class description for more information.    


The final section of the class is working with actual running panels and working with instructor created problems using all diagnostic, test and trouble shooting techniques learned earlier in the class.
