FCPK2-8The FCPK 2-8 Fire Alarm Control Panel is a flexible, expandable conventional system available from 2 to 8 zones.

The panel is designed to be aesthetically pleasing with a contrasting membrane facia incorporating tactile controls with a key switch override and matches the other panels in the range. The FCPK 2-8 control panel can greatly reduce wiring installation costs by utilising its unique 2-Wire zone configuration. This allows sounders to be wired on the same trigger zone circuit, therefore eliminating the need for the sounder circuitry wiring.

  • Available from 2 to 8 zone
  • Designed to comply with BS5839 pt 4 1988 and EN54 pts 2 & 4
  • Programmable microprocessor based system
  • Enclosure is manufactured from high quality steel, available with optional flush bezel.
  • Has built in power supply and charger unit, accepts 2 No. 12 volt 6 Ampere hour batteries
  • One man commissioning – allows trigger devices and sounders to be automatically reset after alarm initiation.
  • Zone configuration allows for conventional or Sav-Wire working per zone.
  • Zone Isolation – allowing individual zones to be disabled for maintenance or other work to be carried out. During zone isolation, the zone sounders are still active.
  • Zone Alarm isolation – allowing the zone alarms to be disabled whilst the detection for that zone is still active.
  • De-latch facility to allow non-latching of individual zones with or without alarms.
  • A maximum of 7 Active AND 7 passive repeaters may be connected to the panel
