NOTIFIER FireWarden-100-2, Intelligent Addressable FACP with Built-In Communicator
An Intelligent Option
The FireWarden-100-2 is designed for applications requiring more advanced addressable intelligence, flexible programming options, and robust power supply for driving horns, strobes, and auxiliary devices.
The Notifier FireWarden-100-2 Rev 2 (NFW2-100 Rev 2) with Version 4.0 firmware is a combination FACP (Fire Alarm Control Panel) and DACT (Digital Alarm Communicator/Transmitter) all on one circuit board. This compact intelligent addressable control panel has an extensive list of powerful features.
The SLC (Signaling Line Circuit) of the FireWarden-100-2 Rev 2 operates using a Rapid Group Polling communication protocol technology that polls multiple devices simultaneously for a quicker device response time. This patented technology allows a fully-loaded panel with up to 198 devices to report an incident and activate the notification circuits in under 10 seconds. With this improved polling, devices can be wired on standard twisted, unshielded wire up to a distance of 10,000 feet.
The FireWarden-100-2 Rev 2’s quick-remove chassis protects the electronics during construction. The backbox can be installed allowing field wiring to be pulled. When construction is completed, the electronics can be quickly installed with just two bolts.
Available accessories include ANN-BUS devices as well as ACS LED, graphic and LCD annunciators, and reverse polarity/city box transmitter.
The integral DACT transmits system status (alarms, supervisories, troubles, AC loss, etc.) to a Central Station via the public switched telephone network. It also allows remote and local programming of the control panel using the PS-Tools Upload/Download utility. In addition, the control panel may be programmed or interrogated off-site via the public switched telephone network. Any personal computer with Windows® XP or greater, a compatible modem, and PS-Tools, the Upload/Download software kit, may serve as a Service Terminal. This allows download of the entire program or upload of the entire program, history file, walk-test data, current status and system voltages. The panel can also be programmed through the FACP’s keypad or via a standard PS-2 computer keyboard, which can be plugged directly into the printed circuit board. This permits easy typing of address labels and other programming information.
Version 4.0 firmware supports the following: ANN-bus devices, NP-A100, USB port, NAC circuit diagnostics, a new report has been added to the walk-test that lists untested devices, new device types added: audio telephone type code for NFV-25/50ZST, Photo Supervisory and auto-resettable Drill (non-latching).
The FireWatch Series internet monitoring modules IPDACT-2 and IPDACT-2UD permit monitoring of alarm signals over the Internet saving the monthly cost of two dedicated business telephone lines. Although not required, the secondary telephone line may be retained providing backup communication over the public switched telephone line.
Note: Unless otherwise specified, the term “FireWarden-100-2” is used in this document to refer to both the FireWarden-100-2 and the FireWarden-100-2E FACPs (Fire Alarm Control Panels). Likewise, “NFW2-100” refers to NFW2-100E as well.
