The 3308 conventional control panel has been designed to provide a simple, user-friendly solution, with inbuilt flexibility previously only found in more complex addressable systems.With 8 detection zones the 3308 panel is ideal for small to medium sized buildings such as Industrial Units, Retail Units, Shops, Schools, …
The 3308 panel can be either surface or recessed mounted, with the controls and indications protected from unauthorised access by entering a user access code. The functions include clearly labelled silence, reset, buzzer mute and sound alarms push buttons along with additional facilities such as zone test, zone disablement, alarm disablement, delay disablement and fire link disablement.
A particular feature of the 3308 Panel, is the ability to identify if a ‘FIRE’ signal has been generated manually by a person activating a manual call point (MCP) or automatically from a detector. This knowledge enables an appropriate cause and effect sequence to be implemented such as time delays to allow for alarm verification for automatic detectors, but immediate alarms from MCPs. Cause and effect functions include coincidence detection, zone delays and/or fire link delay.
Interconnection with other systems is simplified as zones can be configured as ‘non-latching’, and there are dedicated ‘remote alarm input’ and ‘class change input’ terminals. Up to 8 repeater panels can be connected to the 3308 panel on a serial communication link.
The 3308 fire alarm control panel complies with EN54 parts 2 and 4.
