Bosch Security Systems has designed a fire panel system based on full-scale modularity within the panel itself and in the network. This allows for easy installation and expansion in a wide variety of applications.
The design also includes a number of language versions that conform to different countries' standards as well as the possibility to be used in different fire alarm applications. The fire system can be easily integrated into building integration systems (BIS) via Ethernet, thus allowing control through the BIS. Networking is enabled using controller area network (CAN)-BUS technology, widely employed in the automotive industry. This solution provides complete security of the network in the event of cable breakdown.
The modules that make up the fire panel system have extremely robust, encapsulated housings with all components completely protected to avoid damage from touching or static discharge. Each module can be simply connected to pre-wired panel rails on the 'click and go' principle that allows easy and fast replacement or extension as well as avoiding installation errors. Modules are 'hot-swappable' meaning that replacement or extension can be made without powering down the system.
Fire panel modules and their related devices are automatically recognised by the system's central control unit, allowing faster and more effective installation and testing. The system can be programmed by Windows-based software.
Operation is equally convenient from the fire panel touch screen, providing intuitive control and communication with all panels in the system. The remote keypad offers extensive control functions on single panels or the complete network, to which it is connected via the CAN-BUS. The keypad is available in surface- or flush-mounted versions and can also be integrated in operators' desks.
The modular system can be built up from a standalone fire alarm panel based on a single loop comprising a maximum of 254 devices, up to a maximum of 32 loops with a total of 4064 devices. Even larger systems can be built by networking a number of standalone fire panels and associated devices, using a ring or bus networking topology.
Bosch's modular fire panel solution allows fire alarm systems to be built in a wide range of configurations and to suit different countries' standards. The modular approach means that the different panels and components are easy to combine with each other and to expand, offering total flexibility for all kinds of applications.
