Single Loop Fire Alarm Control Panel

The Axis EN series control panels are supplied with a single loop driver card, 2 onboard sounder circuits, 20 programmable zonal LEDs with slide-in labels, and 25 system LEDs for information purposes. There are also 4 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 on-site 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 Axis EN series fire panels. The suite incorporates a number of different programmes which include configuration, service, logo and virtual panel tools to allow the flexibility of the equipment to be fully explored.

Simply adding a network card allows the panel to communicate with any other Axis EN fire panel, remote terminal, or network periferal, such as ipGateway™, BMS or graphical interface. The network operates as a true peer-to-peer system and can be configured in a faulttolerant loop or radial format.
