The FPA-1000-V2 analog addressable fire panel by Bosch of Fairport, N.Y., now includes networking capabilities, which allows installers to connect multiple panels to monitor up to 2,000 addressable points in one system, according to the company.
The panel supports networking via wired Ethernet, fiber optic or two- conductor wire. Mixed wiring types on one module allow multiple connection methods in the same network, providing flexibility in system design.
The product offers a Web-based approach for monitoring and maintaining the system and for generating reports. A set of interactive Web pages provide instant access to important system functions, including programming, status, history files, diagnostic tools and test data.
A dedicated blue LED indicator and a temporal four-pattern for signaling also notify users to the presence of carbon monoxide.
