Conventional Fire Detection Panel

The ORION range of conventional control panels features three models with 2, 4 and 8 zones of detection. Housed in a stylish modern ABS housing, the ORION is the ideal control panel for smaller installations.

Designed and manufactured to comply with the requirements of EN54 parts 2 and 4 (1998), the ORION uses active end of line monitoring to permit head removal protection as required by BS5839 (detector bases must be fitted with diode).

Programmable zone coincidence and alarm delay timer (0-10 min) are standard features to help reduce false alarms.

The one-man test facility enables simple and rapid testing of the system during commissioning and maintenance operations.
