Retain existing wired fire alarm system, simply add wireless devices.

Features

Hybrid Solutions

EMS FireCell panel and devices
  • Addressable solutions allow retention of existing wired addressable loops that can be configured with wireless devices.

  • Addressable solutions utilise open protocol Apollo XP95 technology using Fusion Radio Loop Module (RLM).

  • Each (RLM) connects to the Panel’s XP95 loop and can accommodate up to 31 wireless FireCell devices.

  • RLM will take up one additional loop address, each hard wired loop can support a maximum of five RLMs.

  • Conventional solutions allow you to blend existing zoned detection with wireless devices using Wireless Zone Monitor (WZM).

  • WZM supports up to 30 wireless devices, including EN54-23 Visual Alarm Devices (VADS), to existing or new systems.
