Early success for local control panel

November 2001 Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection

Since releasing provisional information on the new Pi control panel last month, Pi Electronic Security has been inundated with requests for further information. This includes requests for eight fully programmable end of line zones with an additional three inputs for key switch panic, fire, etc.

The panel is available with five programmable triggers that can be assigned to a system or zone function to trigger a negative voltage at 12 V, 250 mA. It also includes RS232 output and trigger expansion options.

Programmable auto arming function and selectable siren annunciation on arm and disarm are further benefits for the user. The arm-disarm function can be activated via a key switch or remote input. Single button operation for full and stay arming enables ease of operation for the user. The keypad includes emergency conditions of fire, panic, duress and auxiliary.

The Pi control panel incorporates either direct connect or remote downloading capabilities. The Windows-based up/down load software allows for programming, fault diagnostics, history diagnosis and normal operation of the system either via a 'direct connect' to a laptop computer on site, using a standard modem and telephone line, or by using the unique QD radio trunking network to connect to a Pi control panel anywhere in the world.

All communication with the Pi panel and software is password protected to avoid any unauthorised communication with the systems.

Mel Labuschagne, National Sales Manager of the Pi electronic security product range comments, "The continuing downward spiral of the rand is turning the attention of companies towards purchase of local product. Our parent company QD Manufacturing is ISO 9001 rated and has twenty years of manufacturing experience with Pi remote control and alarm transmitter product. The new panel will be branded as Pi to present a strong, reliable, quality name to the market."
