The addressable fire alarm panel FC501 from FireClass has been chosen as product of the month for November. Demand for this product has been absolutely outstanding this month with sales of the digital addresable fire panel being four times larger than anticipated. These have already been despatched to customers allowing them to commission fire alarm systems with varying levels of complexities. The three loop circuits in the addressable fire panel offer a unique and innovative feature that allows fire alarm engineers and installers to save time in the wiring resulting in lower installation costs.
The integrated PSTN module interface allows users of the fire alarm control panel to send voice messages and signals encoded in the protocols SIA and Contact ID for fire alarms, faults and other events. This can alert the user and installer, including any organisations or companies involved in the remote monitoring of the fire alarm system.
Commissioning a fire alarm system has never been simpler:
The FireClass FC501 is a revolutionary addressable panel, bridging the gap between the benefits of an addressable system whilst being delivered at a traditional conventional price point. This ensures better coverage of a fire alarm system and reduces false alarms which have been a considerable blight on the fire and security industry.
The FireClass FC501 fire alarm panel can house 128 devices across 32 zones, all of which can be auto addressed providing significant time savings for installers. Housing the best technology on the marketplace, the FireClass FC501 panel is also significantly smaller than some of its larger counter parts, appearing almost the size of a repeater panel providing a neat and attractive solution for architects and design engineers. The addressable open protocol fire alarm panel also features the ability to program the panel via an usb connection. This can be done directly through a laptop or even a USB memory stick. With the addition of the FC500IP3 IP Module the device can be remote accessed from anywhere in the world, providing significant benefits to both end users and fire alarm installers.
The FireClass FC501 fire alarm panel incorporates addressable digital technology in the fire alarm system. At a price level resembling conventional fire systems the fire alarm control panel is superb for less complex and smaller scale applications, such as shop fittings, factories, schools, hotels and warehouses.
