FP 12 Zone Conventional Fire Alarm Panel (expandable to 14 zones)


  • Installer-friendly design.
  • Robust metal enclosure c/w lift off lid & heavy-duty base connections.
  • 12 conventional Zone circuits (expandable to 14).
  • Two conventional Sounder circuits.
  • Separate indicators for open & short circuit fault, sounder fault and battery/power supply fault.
  • Non-latching class change sounder output, latching fire & non-latching fault outputs (via expansion loom).
  • Short circuit=fire facility (pre-1980 BS, no resistors in call points, selectable on a zone by zone basis).
  • Ancillary connections for repeaters & other system add-ons including fault relay modules, fire relay modules, sounder delay relay modules, sounder extender kits, etc).
  • Multi-lingual variants (subject to quantities).
  • Space for 2 x 12V 7Ah VRLA batteries.
  • Compatible with virtually all known conventional fire detectors including C-TEC’s ActiV range.
  • Designed to comply with BS 5839-4 (this panel in not compliant with EN54-2/4 and should NOT be used in new UK or European installations).
