Conventional Panels and Accessories

The Edwards conventional fire alarm family consists of 3-, 5- and 10- zone fire alarm control panels (FACP), an optional integrated upload/download DACT (dialer), intelligent/analog type detector features, serial annunciator modules, and serial remote relay modules. All FACPs and components are UL 864 Listed to the 9th edition standard.

Conventional Panels and Accessories

Edwards incorporates features designed to simplify installation, operation and maintenance. These include front panel programming, one person walk testing, and selectable IDC and NAC types. In addition, when used with CleanMe-compatible conventional smoke detectors, Edwards provides analog type features such as remote maintenance alert and automatic drift compensation that helps reduce false alarms and simplifies maintenance calls.

Edwards conventional panels are powerful enough to meet the demands of today’s installations while leaving plenty of room to grow in the future. They support Class A operation by combining pairs of on-board IDCs or NACs to provide the necessary Class A circuits (5 and 10 zone panels only). For ex- ample, the E-FSC1004D comes factory set to support 10 Class B IDCs and
4 NACs. But it can be field-configured to provide 5 Class A IDCs (no Class B IDCs), and 2 Class A NACs - or any other combination of circuits that fall within the circuit-pairing parameters. Additionally, the E-FSC1004 10 zone panel can be expanded to 7.0 amps of signal power with the addition of an F-XTR120 Transformer.

Notes: Class A operation will reduce the number of available Class B IDCs and/or NACs, depending on the panel configuration. NAC power for E-FSC1004 is 3.5, expandable to 7.0 with optional F-XTR120. See catalog sheet S85005-0126 for details.

E-FSC502*D Conventional Fire Alarm Control Panel with upload/download dialer - 5 Class BIDCs; 2 Class BNACs; 3.5A NAC power (Pairs of IDCs and NACs convertible to single Class A circuits); 120Vac

E-FSC1004*D Conventional Fire Alarm Control Panel with upload/download dialer - 10 Class BIDCs; 4 Class BNACs; 7.5A NAC power (Pairs of IDCs and NACs convertible to single Class A circuits); 120Vac

Note: Remove “D” from part number to order panels without UD dialer. UD dialer also sold separately under part number F-DACT. * Indicate color with G for gray, R for red, i.e. E-FSC302GD, E-FSC1004R, etc.

Semi-Flush Trim Rings (for recessed mounting)

F-TRIM35* Semi-flush trim for E-FSC302* and E-FSC502* (* specify R for red, G for gray, i.e. F-TRIM35G)

F-TRIM10* Semi-flush trim ring for E-FSC1004*D (* specify R for red, G for gray, i.e. F-TRIM10RD)

End of Line Resistor (Options & replacements) (Panels include one 4.7K UL listed resistor for each IDC and NAC)

EOL3.6-1.1   Required UL listed End of Line Resistors - One 3.6K Ohm and one 1.1K Ohm. One required for each IDC configured as combination water flow and supervisory.
