4 Way Control Panel
The standard Indicator panel can be used for 1-4 Alarm Zones. Several units can be combined to produce larger systems of up to 16 zones (or larger on request). For each zone, the panel has an LED indicator lamp below a name plate to identify the origin of the call.
Each Indicator panel has a Mute Button and a Reset Button. Additionally, a sounder will alert attending staff to the presence of a new call.
A standard call can be generated by a Call Point, a pendant switch or a ceiling pull switch. On the Indicator Panel an LED for the corresponding zone will illuminate and the sounder will operate continuously. Staff can temporarily silence the alarm by pressing the Mute Button. The alarm will remain muted until another alarm is activated. The alarm call can be permanently cancelled by visiting the room where the call originated and resetting the Call Point using the Reset Button or a magnetic key. The Reset Button on the Indicator panel can be used to reset i.e. cancel all outstanding alarm calls. This feature can be disabled during installation if required.
Emergency Calls/Call for Assistance
Emergency calls can be activated by an Emergency Call Point or the Alert button on an Alert Call Point. In this case the zone LED will flash and the sounder will pulse on and off to create a greater sense of urgency. In the case of an Emergency call, the sounder cannot be muted; the call can only be reset at the originated Call Point as the Reset Button is usually disabled on systems where Emergency Calls are made.
Each Indicator has a label area for the application of a printed or hand-written adhesive label to identify the room or location of the alarm call.
