FireFinder Marine 8-Zone Conventional Board

FireFinder Marine 8-Zone Conventional Board

The 8 Zone Conventional board has been designed to interface with AMPAC’s range of Fire Alarm Control Panels (FACP’s).
The board supports 8 conventional zones and connects to the FACP via the internal dedicated RS485 communications port.
Each zone can accommodate up to 40 conventional detectors and can be programmed to function in one of the following modes:
• Normal (latching)
• Non-latching/Self Reset
• Dependency A, B and C (EN54-2 and AS7240-2)
• Alarm Investigation facility
The board has a programmable End of Line (EOL) feature that allows either a 3K3Ω, 4K7Ω, 6K8Ω or 10KΩ resistor value to be used on all zones. Alternatively the EOL can be a 10uF capacitor which is required to support the head removal feature when the appropriate diode bases are used.
The zone interface circuitry is capable of recognising and reporting the following conditions:
• Normal
• Open Circuit
• Short Circuit
• Alarm
The Zones are configurable using the Configuration Programs such as ConfigManager (FireFinder Plus panels) or LoopMaster (LoopSense)
