Original Press Release:

Intelligent Fire Alarm Control Panel Features Enhanced Loop Circuit

Faraday of Tecumseh, Michigan has introduced an intelligent fire alarm control panel with an enhanced loop circuit. The MPC-1500 Plus panel employs a UL-approved enhanced loop driver circuit that permits reliable operation with existing installed wire. While low-capacitance, twisted cable is always preferable for a new fire alarm application, the enhanced circuit is tolerant of straight-laid non-twisted, non-shielded wire in retrofit applications.

The advanced modular fire alarm panel features analog/addressable detection, programming, memory capability, and is capable of accepting special expansion modules to allow the inclusion of up to 8 local conventional style "D/B" initiating zones. Its base configuration includes two analog/addressable loops, with four conventional notification appliance output circuits.

Operating controls and indicators are mounted on the door with a mylar label for identification. An 80-character LCD display provides specific indications for addressable devices and conventional expansion zones while LEDs indicate general panel status.
