The Protec 3500 range of conventional control panels has been designed to provide a simple, user-friendly, highly cost effective option with inbuilt flexibility previously only found in more complex addressable systems.
With up to 8 detection zones the 3500 range of Fire Alarm control panels are ideal for small to medium sized buildings such as industrial units, retail units, shops and schools.
The panels can be either surface or recessed mounted, with the controls and indications protected from unauthorised access by entering a user access code. These panels have 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 (time delays, for example) to allow for alarm verification for automatic detectors, but immediate alarms from MCPs. Cause and effect functions include coincidence detection, zone delays, pulsing sounders and fire relay. Interconnection with other systems is simplified as zones can be configured as ‘non-latching’, and there is a dedicated ‘class change input’ terminal. The 3500 range control panels are third party approved to the latest European standard and meets all the requirements of BS5839 pt1.
The 3500RPT Repeat Indicator Panel has been designed to connect to the 3500 panel serial data output. The 3500RPT mimics all the main panel display functions but does not have any control fucntions.
Up to five 3500RPT Panels may be connected to a 3500 Main Panel.
