Johnson Controls has announced the new FireClass Essential conventional fire alarm control panel. The cost-effective panel is simple to use, install and maintain right out of the box, with little to no training required for setup and operation. The Essential Panel makes reliable and compliant fire detection easily accessible for small commercial facilities like schools, shops, restaurants and medical offices.
“We designed the new Essential Panel with simplicity, functionality and affordability in mind. It’s the perfect product to round out our complete portfolio of conventional detection panels and devices,” said Tony Gryscavage, Director, Product Management, Fire Detection Products at Johnson Controls. “With this new Essential Panel offering, FireClass can offer customers the latest conventional technology at a competitive price, providing compliant fire detection that’s simple to use and fits any budget.”
The panel’s compact, plastic construction features durable covers and a straightforward, easy-to-understand interface that is simple to configure and operate. It offers a delayed option to minimise false alarms and walk testing to confirm reliable operation. Additional features include disable capability for sounders and conventional zones as well as buttons for silence, resound and reset.
The FireClass Essential Panel is available in two- and four-zone models. Each zone can support up to 32 devices, with a maximum of 64 devices for the two-zone model and 128 devices for the four-zone model. The panel supports all FireClass 600 and 700 series conventional detectors, sounders and devices. It meets EN54-2, EN54-4 approvals and is listed as part of the EN 54-13 system certificate, the latter of which goes beyond the basic standards that most conventional panels must meet.
The products in the FireClass conventional portfolio, including the Essential Panel, are compatible with other available products in the market and can act as a drop-in replacement in installed systems. The Essential Panel is ideal for both new construction and retrofit applications.
