Upgrades to the FPA-1000-UL Fire Panel Double Capacity and Enhance Ease-of-Use

A new generation of the FPA-1000-UL Analog/Addressable Fire Panel 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.

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 more efficient. 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 includes built-in Bosch Conettix IP technology for communicating over local or wide area networks for faster alarm reporting. The panel also alerts to the presence of carbon monoxide and other hazardous gases. This capability helps 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 UL for central station, local, auxiliary, and remote station systems, the FPA-1000-UL Analog/Addressable Fire Panel has essential equipment built into the unit, such as notification appliance circuits, signaling line circuits, programmable relays, a power supply, and DACT. This eliminates the costs of purchasing and stocking these supplies.
