Detection & Control
Our control panels and detection devices feature automatic and manual programming, systems status monitoring and other advances for detection and release. There are two main categories for alarm systems: addressable and conventional detection.
Addressable systems, also called "intelligent" systems, enable each and every initiating device to have an individual address, or zone identifier. This is most beneficial when servicing a system. If a detector is faulty, the technician knows exactly which device is at fault. The addressable devices all connect to a single loop that runs through the premises.
Multi-loop control panel combines high quality, system reliability and flexibility for modern commercial, high-tech, industrial and heritage applications in an aesthetically pleasing and physically robust package.
Conventional systems are set with a certain number of zones that are hardwired to the control panel or zone expander. Smoke detectors must be run on a separate zone from pull stations, etc. There may be a dozen detectors in a single zone and if one is faulty, the technician is tasked with finding it. More cable is required because instead of having multiple devices wired into the same loop, a separate cable is required to be run for each type of device.
Control units are highly reliable and flexible and come well equipped to handle all special hazard extinguishing and suppression systems. They offer a high degree of programming flexibility as well as a full complement of input and output circuits.
