Conventional fire panels

August 2002 Fire & Safety

At the recent IFSEC 2002 Alarmcom launched its new conventional panel series, the FC500C. The range consists of 2, 4, 8 and 12-zone versions all coming with a host of features to ensure compliance with the toughest of specifications.

The FC500C is fully compliant with EN54 parts 2 and 4 and can provide capacity for up to 72 hours of integral standby.

The system has the ability to operate in manned and unmanned mode which allows signalling to the fire brigade to be delayed in the event of operation of an automatic detector while signalling immediately if a manual call point or further detection zone is activated. Manual call points can be mixed on a zone with automatic detectors and still provide manned/unmanned differentiation.

Outputs are provided for fire, stage 1 and 2 alarm, fault and disable as well as individual outputs for each zone. Additional inputs are available for remote evacuation, acknowledge, reset, access, manned/unmanned switching and remote transmission disable.
