adding and removing devices as well as defining operational behavior changes are stored in a configuration data file which enables the user to easily configure the systfrom either the FACP or at a remote This flexibility allows ongoing system upgrades and modifications to support building expansion and increased safety objectives panel can be programmed to communicate with addressable modules and supports a total of 127 devices on a single SLC The PFC 8500 be expanded to support up to 508 devices when three 3 ALE 127 modules are configured The panel also contains all the necessary to communicate with all other system components directly including smoke sensors heat detectors and modules operator interface consists of a LCD display system status LEDs a local status buzzer system control switches and a numeric keypad The character LCD display and system status LED communicate the latest system status information to the operator The local buzzer audibly the operator attention during status change occurrences remote annunciator output provides the panel with the ability to interface to remote annunciators The annunciator connection is a protocol operating over an RS 485 style communications bus PFC supervises and maintains the 24 VDC batteries that supply secondary power for the system The PFC has dedicated outputs for the The PFC also supplies 24 VDC output on auxiliary output terminal blocks for use by external devices such as option components as Remote Annunciator and Sounder Base addressable output devices and 4 wire smoke detectors Electric Signal

control panel may be connected with up to 127 addressable devices or modules in any combination The SLC is not restricted by any special requirements and may be wired with any wire that complies with the NEC Additional loop expanders ALE 127 may be added to increase total number of devices to 508 loop devices Photo Electric Smoke Detector is a smoke detector with a listed obscuration of 1.02 to 3.83 percent per Analog Photo Electric Smoke Heat Detector a smoke detector with a listed obscuration of 1.02 to percent obscuration and a fixed temperature 135 Fahrenheit heat detector Fixed

sensors base that interrupts a short in a SLC and prevents the short from affecting protected devices on the loop Relay Base that contains two relays controlled by the SLC One relay is rated at 8 amps at 240 and the other is rated at 2 amps 240 VAC 30 VDC Sounder Base that contains and addressable sounder module that may be configured for local group all call The sounder follows the pattern sent to the device Contact Module provides a small foot print contact module for mounting inside an enclosure typically to monitor a pull station Contact Module is a standard contact module with an LED that mounts into a 4 square electrical box The monitors normally open contacts and the LED will provide an indication when the device has activated Contact Module is a device that can monitor two distinct inputs with a single device or in a Class A mode DCM 4 mounts into a 4 square electrical box and has a cover plate with an LED as a status indication Relay Module provides two form C relays that simultaneously active when the module is triggered by the panel Each relay is rated for 2 amps at 24VDC or 0.5 amps at 125VAC Output Module is a power switching module that monitors the circuit that is controlled by the control Input Zone Module is used to connect conventional smoke detectors to the system that receive their from the module This module is like a conventional zone on the SLC
