The Altronix FireSwitch108 is a cost effective managed NAC Power Extender. It interfaces with 12 or 24VDC Fire Alarm Control Panels (FACP) to provide Notification Appliance Circuit expansion support, for additional horns/strobes to allow ADA compliancy. It also provides auxiliary power to support system accessories. It delivers electronically regulated and filtered 24VDC power to Class B or Class ANAC loop circuits. Additionally, a separate 1A. auxiliary output for 4-wire smoke detectors is available. Alarm current can be divided between the eight (8) outputs for powering NAC devices. Outputs are rated at 2.5A. max., and can be independently programmed for Steady, Temporal Code 3 or Strobe Synchronization. All outputs may be programmed for Input to Output Follower Mode (output will follow input. i.e. March Time Input, March Time Output). In non-alarm condition independent loop supervision for Class A and/or Class B FACP NAC circuits is provided. In the event of a loop trouble, the FACP will be notified via the steered input (input 1 or input 2). In addition, there are common trouble output terminals [NC, C, NO] which are used to indicate general loop/system trouble. Two (2) FACP signaling outputs can be employed and directed to control supervision and power delivery to any combination of the eight (8) outputs. It provides a programmable LCD display interface*, plus an ethernet port interface for remote programmability and monitoring.
*LCD display - Indicates troubles and conditions of operation. Trouble Condition Memory facilitates quick identification of an intermittent/fault (short circuit, open or ground) which has previously occurred on one or more signaling circuit outputs. LCD displays which output the fault has occurred on.
