Analogue Addressable Fire Alarm Systems
These are designed for larger installations (6 or more detection zones) and multi-building networked systems where fire alarm panels are linked together. Addressable fire alarm systems provide the user with the status of the initiating devices that comprise the system network; that is, smoke detectors, call points, output unit etc. The fire alarm system control panel or repeater panel allows the user to easily view the initiating device and its location by viewing the panels LCD display. The devices are coded and given a text location by either a tag or plugging the device into a programmer and then having text added at the fire alarm panel or via a PC and software.
