Fire alarm control panels

A new fire alarm control panel by Honeywell is designed to reduce installation/maintenance while increase its capabilities and life span.

06/08/2011


Fire-Lite Alarms by Honeywell has modernized two of its addressable fire alarm control panels with installer-requested features to reduce installation/maintenance time and enhance the systems' capabilities and life span. Version 3 of the MS-9200UDLS and MS-9050UD panels support more notification and ancillary devices while allowing for longer wire runs using most styles of wire. With fire alarm voice evacuation becoming more prevalent in the U.S. market, the number of speakers and strobes required has increased dramatically, creating a need for higher-capacity systems. On both panels, the addition of a second annunciator circuit, commonly used to tie in remote annunciators, printers, and more, allows for double the number of ancillary devices and double wire lengths that can be run in different directions using nearly any type of wire. A quick-remove chassis on both panels allows electronics to be removed from the backbox during the initial construction phase.
