Bosch Upgrades FPA-1000-UL Fire Panel
Bosch Security Systems, Inc. has introduced a new
generation of the FPA-1000-UL Analog/Addressable Fire Panel that now
includes support for up to 508 addressable devices. Using two analog
addressable loops, the FPA-1000-UL has doubled its capacity to support larger
applications, such as schools, warehouses and office buildings.
Innovative enhancements to the panel’s built-in Web interface have also made
operation easier and more secure. New features such as online help and an
offline configuration tool make provisioning easier and more efficient for
customers. Its Web server and set of interactive Web pages provide an instant
means to access important system functions, including status, history files,
diagnostic tools and test data.
The upgraded panel also features additional flexibility for programming
parameters, such as the ability to activate smoke detector sounder bases by
zone and support for "smart" analog devices.
The FPA-1000-UL is one of the most feature-rich and cost-effective products in
its class. It includes built-in Bosch Conettix IP technology for communicating
over local or wide area networks for faster alarm reporting. The panel also
alerts users to the presence of carbon monoxide and other hazardous gases.
This capability helps customers meet the requirements of new state laws for
carbon monoxide and the standards set by the National Fire Protection
Association’s NFPA 720-2009.
Listed by Underwriters Laboratories for central station, local, auxiliary, and
remote station systems, the FPA-1000-UL Analog/Addressable Fire Panel has
essential equipment built right into the unit, such as notification appliance
circuits, signaling line circuits, programmable relays, a power supply,and
digital alarm communicator transmitter. This added convenience eliminates
the costs of purchasing and stocking these supplies for installing dealers.
