New addressable fire control panels

Issue 3 2021 Fire & Safety

Johnson Controls Global Products has released the FireClass FC600 line of addressable fire control panels to the UK and South African markets. The two new panels, FC602S and FC604S, each have a 4,3-inch (109,2 mm) colour LCD screen with 32 fire and fault zonal LEDs integrated into a simple interface.

These features help users identify and locate potential fire events and system issues quickly. The panels offer easy installation and maintenance while allowing intuitive operation with minimal error for installers, contractors, facility management and other building staff.

The FC602S Addressable Fire Control Panel is a two-loop panel with options to run two standard-power loops or one high-power loop with a maximum of 250 addresses. The FC604S Addressable Fire Control Panel is a four-loop panel with the option to run four standard-power loops or two high-power loops with a maximum of 500 addresses. Each panel offers a 10 000 event log and comprehensive point management and disable functions to give users full control and reduce service and maintenance efforts.

The FireClass FC602S and FC604S Addressable Fire Control Panels feature shallow ancillary housing for a sleek appearance and better fit in smaller areas. For added aesthetics and branding opportunities, the programmable quiescent display offers two lines of customisable text when in screensaver mode. The launch of these panels also includes new available design software with a clean modern look to simplify the project design process

Peter Hauser, senior global product manager, Johnson Controls, says, “Features such as automatic battery tests, manual and automatic walk tests, reporting and detector service functions help further reduce maintenance needs over the life of the panels.”

FireClass addressable fire control panels work alongside other Johnson Controls fire protection, life safety and connected building technologies to help keep people and buildings healthy and safe.
