New G Series Control Panels
We've introduced enhanced versions of the G Series Control Panels – integrated solutions for intrusion, access control and fire alarm monitoring. The new GV4 panels offer support for more users, faster performance, and enhancements that enable easier installation and system upgrades.
With four times the number of users as previous G Series systems, the control panels provide simpler programming and operation. GV4 panels support the assignment of individual passcodes, key fobs or other credentials for up to 1,000 people for easier implementation of security measures and faster user identification. This important feature opens up new installation opportunities, as the panels are now suitable for an even wider range of applications.
The panels also incorporate a new microprocessor to improve customer interaction with the system. The microprocessor delivers faster keypad responses when operating the panel and integrating to other systems. Operating at 96MHz, it is the fastest processor in this class of control panels.
Multiple communicators, including the new Conettix B420 Ethernet Communication Module, allow for dual, simultaneous, wired IP and cellular communications to help meet a wide variety of customer requirements and to reduce costs. With the support of DNS for remote programming and central station communication—an industry first—GV4 simplifies IP alarm communication and helps automate disaster recovery.
For easy upgrades, flash firmware updates can now be accomplished remotely using our Remote Programming Software–eliminating costly site visits for feature enhancements, maintenance or upgrades to the control panels. Fast, on-site updates are made possible with a plug-in firmware update key.
Installation of the new G Series Panels with Inovonics wireless devices is made even easier with the new B820 Inovonics Interface Module. This module reduces the number of components required and eliminates the need for a dedicated configuration keypad.
A flexible family of control panels, the G Series meets the needs of virtually any facility configuration. They are ideal for retail stores, banks, manufacturing plants, office buildings, government locations and many other commercial applications.
