Intelligent Addressable Control Panels

Advanced intelligent addressable technology delivers the benefits of flexible system installation, while a clean and easy-to-operatate user interface makes panel operation and system maintenance quick and intuitive.

The Edwards family of intelligent components also offers contractors and installers simple setup and installation, while delivering options that take full advantage of intelligent fire alarm processing. With a microprocessor in each device, intelligence is distributed throughout the system so that command decisions are made at the individual module, rather than bottlenecking at the control panel.

This not only speeds event processing, it also makes a more robust and reliable system – so robust, in fact, that when upgrading from a conventional panel to an Edwards intelligent system, you can usually use existing wiring – no twisted or shielded cable required!
