Nittan Europe, one of the leading companies in the European fire protection industry, has launched the evolution 1 range of fire alarm control panels which offer complete compatibility with the award winning range of Evolution detection and alarm devices.
Fully compliant with BS EN54 part 2 and 4, the evolution 1 panels have been designed with the needs of both the installer and end user in mind; the panels even have separate dedicated menus for the user and installer. For ease of use the panels have a 4.3 inch LCD touch screen display and an intuitive and easy to use menu structure. The evolution 1 panels have the capability of running up to 254 devices on the loop, while the flexible architecture means everything from a single stand alone panel, to a 16 panel network can be achieved without any additional hardware.
evolution 1 panels have up to 254 zones with the first 16 zones indicated by LED for convenience and expediency. The panels also have very comprehensive, but simple to use Cause and Effect capabilities and, like most addressable systems, allow comprehensive programming of the sounder outputs. Furthermore, the Cause and Effect matrix can be set up via the onboard touch screen and menu structure or using the PC tools and downloaded to the panel.
The panels have two configurable rs485 ports for connection and support up to eight separate password protected users as well as a built in TCP-IP port this is intended for future developments such as remote access to the panel for authorised service companies. The clean cut, classic lines of the ABS enclosure not only make the panels attractive and unobtrusive for the end user, but the completely removable front cover improves installer access for cabling and termination too.
As you would expect from Nittan, the evolution 1 panels are very hard wearing, being contained in a robust enclosure with removable equipment chassis and plug-in connectors for simple fixing and cable termination.
evolution 1 panels are compatible with Nittan’s award winning Evolution range, which uses micro processor technology in the sensors and sophisticated detection algorithms, combining extremely reliable fire detection together with a very high degree of protection against unwanted false alarms. Its advanced, highly flexible protocol is not only uniquely resistant to external interference, but also allows for substantial amounts of information to be transmitted at high speeds.
Lee James, EMEA Product Marketing Manager at Nittan, commented, “We are pleased at the new innovations that Nittan has been incorporating to grow our Evolution range to offer not only the most technologically advanced, but reliable products as well.”
The Nittan Group has been at the forefront of the international fire protection industry since 1954 and has sales, R&D and manufacturing bases in four countries, including the UK. The company continuously innovates and strives for exceptional quality products that meet the highest standards.
