1-2 Loop Fire Alarm Control Panel

The Axis EN series control panels are fully expandable from 1 - 2 loops and supplied with 2 on-board 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 and click programming aid for engineer configuration and end user operation.

Powerful cause-and-effect programming 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.

PC Software: An extensive suite of user-friendly Windows based PC software programs has been developed to enhance your experience when using Axis EN Series of 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.

Network: Simply adding a network card allows the panel to communicate with any other Axis EN fire panel, remote terminal, or network peripheral, such as, ‘ipGateway™’ or BMS/Graphical Interface. The network operates as a true peer-topeer system and can be configured in a fault-tolerant loop or radial format.
