Peripheral Devices

P-Link Circuit

P-Link Circuit

The P-Link circuit is a 4-terminal connection that provides both power and data between fire alarm control panels, power expanders, and accessory devices in the field. Each P-Link connection is rated 1 amp at 24 volts and can span a maximum of 6500 feet between any P-Link device. The PSN-1000(E) power expander acts as a P-Link repeater and can provide additional power and distance. Greater distances can also be achieved with the FIB-1000 fiber interface module and fiber optic cabling.

Life Safety Software

PotterNet

PotterNet Graphical Software

The PotterNet Fire and Facility Supervising Station is a desktop application that facilitates the monitoring and control of IPA, AFC/ARC, and PFC-4064 fire alarm control panels. It utilizes a distributed client-server model for communication in order to reduce or eliminate single points of failure.

Available in both UL and non-UL Listed versions, PotterNet will monitor all compatible panels in a single building, on a local campus, or across multiple sites worldwide. Configurations with as many as 1,000 panels and 15 graphical PotterNet stations can address your largest system needs.

IntelliView Cloud Monitoring

IntelliView™ Cloud Monitoring

Monitor your fire panel from anywhere in the world and take full advantage of the industry leading smart features of the Potter IntelliView dashboard. Simply connect to the building's networked internet connection and register your device. You will be able to remotely view the status of your Potter connected systems from your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Panel Programmer

Panel Programmer

Once connected to a network, the panel configuration software allows custom programming and configuration for all points using the network or a stand-alone computer. Fine-tune device behavior characteristics or create mapping zones for a more sophisticated fire protection system. All this is bundled in an easy-to-use drag and drop interface.

IP & Networking

Network Cards

Panel Networking

Potter's peer-to-peer networking solution allows all new and existing IPA Series, AFC Series, and PFC-4064 fire alarm panels to communicate on a dedicated ethernet or fiber network. When networked, users can allow point control between panels, use a single panel for central station reporting for a network, and employ network annunciators for total system control on up to 200 panels.

Ethernet Ports

IP Connectivity

With today's ever-expanding means of communication, it's important to be able to incorporate the same technology into your fire control system. We took this technology into account when we designed IP connectivity within our new panels.

By eliminating the cost of phone lines, save big when using your building's existing network infrastructure. Additionally, the speed of IP communication allows for event information to be sent to the central station within seconds. Every Potter IP-enabled fire alarm system has an on board IP communicator that is listed to communicate with the Sur-Gard III IP receiver.

Emails & Reminders

Potter IP-enabled fire alarm systems are email ready. History and Detector Status reports can be sent on demand as either a text or Excel® file for a professional look. The status events of the panel can be immediately emailed allowing users to be proactive in servicing customers.

Reports and the configuration file can be requested from the panel at any time by sending an email directly to the panel. Additionally, enhance your business by creating email reminders for your customers to schedule system tests or even to purchase new batteries.

IPA System Features

Programmable EOLs

Programmable EOLs

NACs and I/Os have programmable EOLs between 2.0k and 27k. This can be achieved manually by installing the resistor and using the panel's LEARN function, or automatically through the programming software.

Dipswitches

Dipswitch Programming

Potter Protocol devices are now programmed through easy-to-use dip-switches. This makes it easier than ever to address SLC devices on-site and requires no external hardware.

MC-1000

Multi-Connect

The MC-1000 Multi-Connect Module allows up to 62 client fire panels to communicate with a remote/central station through a single control panel designated as the host. This can eliminate the need for multiple phone lines and monitoring accounts. Each MC-1000 module includes terminal connections for two client panels.

Quadrasync Technology

Quadrasync

Our patented Quadrasync technology allows four different brands of strobes to be synced together using a Potter fire alarm control panel or PSN Series power supply. There is no need for the panel and devices to utilize the same protocol, making this technology a great feature for retrofit applications. Quadrasync works with the Potter®/Gentex®, Amseco®, System Sensor®, and Wheelock® protocols.
