The ZC5 is a conventional fire alarm panel available in 6-zone, 12-zone, 18-zone and 24-zone models. It is suitable for medium-size to large-size systems and is able to support up to 480 fire or smoke detectors. It is designed for surface mounting, is compact, and incorporates batteries, electronics and annunciation in one cabinet.
It is an advanced fire alarm panel providing a reliable high-quality fire detection system for those applications needing a conventional system. Proven hardware and robust software ensure reliable operation and the confidence that the system is functioning correctly. The panel and detectors are continuously monitored for correct operation and the operator is immediately alerted in the event of a problem.
In addition to the standard fire alarm functions, it can communicate with repeater panels by means of a serial link and can connect to a computer graphics system to display alarms in a simple graphic format. An optional liquid crystal display indicates events and provides maintenance functions. All functions are software controlled. A built-in charger maintains the batteries in a continuously charged state, providing a full 24 hours operation in the event of a mains failure.
To allow the system to be configured to suit the application requirements, a full range of outputs is provided. These include separate common fire and fault outputs, common fire sounder outputs for alarm and evacuation, outputs to signal the fire brigade for both alarm and fault conditions, and separate fire outputs for each zone. This can be used to operate alarms by zone, or for zonal functions such as remote annunciation, door control, etc.
