Potter Acquires Harrington, Evax, and CPG
Announcing the acquisition of three mainstay product lines in the fire alarm industry: Harrington Fire Alarm, Evax Systems, and CPG Signals.
The PFC-6075R is a versatile seventy-five (75) point analog/addressable releasing fire alarm control panel that utilizes the Potter/Nohmi device protocol that has a complete line of initiating and control devices. The SLC is capable of 50 ohms of resistance and does not require the use of twisted or shielded wire. The signaling line circuit may be any combination of smoke sensors, heat detectors or modules. The PFC-6075R will operate with a small Pre-Action water based system or a complex multiple criteria agent suppression system.
The panel is specifically designed for releasing service with software zones for cross zoning, counting zones, timers and system release abort features. The display includes Pre-Discharge and Discharge LEDs to assist in providing system and releasing status. The releasing and additional releasing notification circuits may be expanded using the PSN-1000 intelligent power supply.
The complete system may be converted to Class A with a CA-6075 module. The CA-6075 provides the hardware necessary to convert the remote annunciators through the Potter P-Link connection protocol, the NACs and the SLC to Class A operation.
The panel has auto-programming learn mode that will not affect the existing system when adding or deleting a device. The system is capable of 99 software zones, cross zoning and counting zones. The panel is fully programmed from a PC based software program that will work with Microsoft XP, Vista or Windows 7.0 operating systems.
The PFC-6075 has an Ethernet connection for programming network connectivity and IP reporting communicator. The system has a built in e-mail function and will send system E-mail reminders based on user defined dates. The IP communicator is listed with the Sur-Gard III IP receiver.
The panel will support P-Link devices which include: the RA-6075R, RA-6500R and LED-16 Annunciators, RLY 5 Relay Module, SPG-1000 Serial Parallel Gateway (printer card), FCB-1000 Remote Ethernet/IP connection, DRV-50 LED driver for 50 LEDs, PSN-1000 Remote Power Supplies (10 Amp) and FIB-1000 P-Link Fiber Interface Module. In addition, the panel allows for the installation of the UD-1000 dual line telephone line digital alarm communicator transmitter (DACT). The UD-1000 is programmable for s single line or dual line and is compatible with Ademco's Contact ID or SIA DCS protocols.
