October 1, 2012 - The new Siemens Sinteso FC2080 fire detection control panel supports up to 5,000 peripheral devices. It can also be individually configured with the addition of up to 37 line and I/O cards. When an alarm occurs, the panel displays "precise messages in plain language", allowing personnel to operate them safely and with as little stress as possible, says Siemens. The Sinteso FC2080 is housed in a standard 19-inch rack, and the operating unit can be integrated into the housing door or placed at a distance from the unit, as needed. The system is best suitable for very large fire detection systems, in locations such as airports, shopping centres, chemical and pharmaceutical production facilities or power plants.
