16 Channel I/O Interface card
The 16 Channel I/O Interface enhances the versatility of the alarm system by providing additional input and output capabilities to the Taktis Fire Alarm Control Panel. Inputs and outputs can be selected for up to 16 individual channels. All inputs and outputs are configured in the same way as devices connected to addressable loops of the panel. The 16 Channel I/O Interface can be configured to contribute or act upon cause and effect logic.
This module must be housed in a separately-listed enclosure connected to the panel by metal conduit located within the same room. Power must be provided by a power supply listed for fire alarm service.
