Expandable Conventional Fire Detection Panel

The ORION + range of expandable conventional control panels offers an aesthetically pleasing and functional cabinet design for larger projects demanding ease of installation and commissioning, as well as simple operation, such as conventional installations.

The unit can be expanded easily from eight to 16 zones by installing additional modules with four zones. The range also includes two types of repeater.

The outstanding programming features included in this panel range exceed the possibilities of standard conventional panels, using a graphic LCD display and real time clock which permits the recording of events in a time stamped log.

Operation is intuitive, offering simple control and one-button disablement facilities, as well as a one-man test routine, which provides a highly effective way to perform regular testing of the fire alarm system.

Advanced configuration interfacing includes RS232, RS422/485, fibre optic, GSM-GPRS and TCP/IP. All of the above make use of our own proprietary interfaces.
