Fire control panel (4-loop)

Stock no. A5Q00016100

Stock no. A5Q00016100

The FC2040-AA (4-loop, expandable to 8) is a compact fire control panel with an integrated operating unit that can process signals from Sinteso devices of up to 504 addresses. The fire control panel can be used as a stand-alone version or networked. The control panel can be programmed with a user-friendly engineering tool (SintesoWorks) to create a system with great versatility. Up to 32 fire control panels and fire terminals can be connected in a single cluster (FCnet/SAFEDLINK network), or up to 16 panels when the cluster is connected to a danger management system. Using a fiber-optic backbone (FCnet/LAN) up to 14 of these clusters with up to 16 panels each can be networked. This topology enables the construction of an EN 54-compliant network with up to 64 fire control panels and fire terminals. Connection to Siemens Danger Management System.

All detector lines are monitored for ground faults.

Adaptation of the user text directly on the terminal or with the software engineering tool. Up to 2000 events can be stored according to various criteria. Automatic summer/winter time change.

Detection and automatic read-in (auto configuration) of all FDnet devices, providing immediate simple operation.

Stored data can be uploaded via remote access (SintesoView).

The FC2040-AA is ideally suited for medium-sized applications, e.g. in industrial plants, regional banks, office complexes, etc. or when networked as part of much larger applications. The FC2040-AA, with flexible cross-linking possibilities, can also be used for extensive systems.

The expansion and accessories must be ordered separately.
