Potter is proud to announce the launch of the AFC Series of Addressable Fire Panels and ARC-100 Releasing Panel. The AFC-50, AFC-100, and AFC-1000 Fire Panels offer the highest point capacity available in the distribution channel ranging from 50 to 1270 points. The entire line has the same enhanced IP features as Potter's current line of panels. The AFC/ARC panels use the new PAD100 line of addressable SLC devices. Potter is extremely proud of these new panels and SLC devices because they are 100% assembled in the USA.

The AFC Series of Addressable Fire Panels maintain the same programming software that customers are used to while providing several enhanced features. The new PAD100 modules use sub-points in the programming software to keep down the used "point count". For example, a PAD100-TRTI has two programming relays and two programmable inputs yet consumes only one of the addresses on the SLC loop. Each sub-point can be programmed independently if desired.

The AFC series of panels along with the PAD100 series SLC devices will replace the Potter PFC-6030, PFC-6075, PFC-6200, and PFC-6800 addressable panels and related SLC devices. Those products will be discontinued on March 30, 2018.

Jeff Hendrickson, V.P. of Product Management for the Fire/Security division of Potter, said,

"The AFC line of addressable panels in conjunction with the PAD SLC Modules will greatly simplify installation. We're confident that the added points will benefit those looking for maximum coverage with their fire alarm system."

Dave Kosciuk, Executive V.P. and General Manager for the Fire/Security division at Potter, said,

"We're very excited to offer a non-proprietary panel with such a large point capacity, it really gives our customer base far greater flexibility in many different types of applications ranging from small to large systems."
