2-8 Loop Fire Alarm Control Panel

The MxPro 5 series is fully expandable from 2 to 8 loops and supplied with 8 on-board sounder circuits, 20 programmable Zonal LEDs with slide-in labels, and 25 System LEDs for information purposes. There are also 8 programmable function buttons with LED indication for confirmation of operation.

The control panel consists of the latest dual flash-based microprocessor technology combined with a high resolution, high contrast, graphical LCD display and tactile keypad providing a simple select & click programming aid for engineer configuration and end-user operation.

Powerful cause-and-effect programming coupled with dynamic zoning, and enhanced Trace Diagnostics makes the panel suitable for a wide range of site applications from small to large complex multi-area systems. Fully programmable onsite via the on-board alphanumeric keypad, or PC-NeT configuration software. An extensive suite of user-friendly Windows based PC software programs has been developed to enhance your experience when using MxPro 5 series fire panels. The suite incorporates a number of different programmes to include a configuration, service, logo and virtual panel tool to allow the flexibility of the equipment to be fully explored.

Simply adding a network card allows the panel to communicate with any other MxPro 5/MxPro 4 fire panel, remote terminal, or network peripheral, such as, ipGateway™ or BMS/graphical interface. The network operates as a true peer-to-peer system and can be configured in a fault tolerant loop or radial format.
