Addressable devices

Addressable systems work on a 2 wire loop system, each of the devices has an address and can reply back to the control panel giving its address and status.  The control panel then analyses the data to establish the status of the device and can report devices as being normal, fault, pre-alarm and fire.

  • ZP Addressable Devices

    Point detection

    ZP Optical Smoke Detector: Sensitive to larger smoke particles produced by slow burning smouldering fires.

    ZP Thermal Sensor: Responds to changes in ambient temperature and provides reliable response in areas unsuitable for smoke detectors owing to unsuitable conditions i.e. steam or cooking.

    ZP Combination Smoke and Heat Detector: Provides accurate warning of fire. Smoke sensing can be isolated at set times of day where ambient smoke may exist at certain times – i.e. when a building is occupied.

    ZP Multisensing Fire Detector: Next generation of early warning fire detectors – combines dynamic results of rates of change patterns and absolute levels of smoke and heat to identify real fire criteria.

  • Chubb beam detection

    Beam detection

    Linear beam smoke detection is developed for use in areas where point type detectors would be difficult to install and maintain.

    There are two main types of beam detection:
    • Reflective: A transmitter and receiver are contained in one enclosure. The transmitter emits an invisible infrared beam, which is reflected back to the receiver by a prism mounted directly opposite and in clear line of sight.
    • End-to-end: comprises a transmitter which projects a modulated infrared beam across the protected area to a receiver, which in turn forwards a signal on to a control unit for analysis.

  • Call point

    Call points

    The addressable call point is a stylish design, providing a manual means of initiating a fire alarm on ZP addressable systems.

    The unit is operated either by pressing a re-settable element or by breaking a frangible glass with finger pressure.

    A weatherproof (IP67) version is also available.

  • Relays and Interfacing

    Relays and interfacing

    Input Interface: The addressable input interface is designed for installation within the enclosures of equipment associated with fire detection systems.  The unit is installed directly onto the ZP loop wiring and it carries a system address and enables signals from associated equipment to be interfaced into the fire alarm system.

    Conventional Interface: The addressable conventional interface enables existing or new conventional fire detection zones to be interfaced to an addressable fire alarm system, allowing all areas of a site to be controlled by a Ziton addressable fire panel.

    Output Relays: The addressable output relays provide volt free, change-over contacts for the control of associated system equipment such as door release circuits or the emergency shutdown of high risk services, for instance gas or oil supply valves in boiler rooms.

  • Base Integrated Notification

    Base integrated notification

    The base sounder and sounder with visual indicator are addressable loop powered devices use on ZP fire alarm systems.

    The ZP755B-2P combines a detector base and audible sounder in a single stylish moulding.

    The ZP755BV-4P also combines a detector base, audible sounder and includes a high intensity visual indicator in a single stylish moulding.  It offers both audible and visual warnings from a single, addressable, loop wired unit.

    These devices provide an elegant solution for areas where the installation of a separate detector and sounder would prove expensive, both in equipment capital value and system wiring costs.

  • Open Area Notification

    Open area notification

    The horn sounder and sounder with visual indicator are addressable loop powered devices use on ZP fire alarm systems.

    ZP755HA-2R is a RED addressable horn sounder and is designed with dual front and rear sound paths, it provides an 'all around' sound output - ideal for open area coverage.

    The ZP755HAV-2R is a RED, addressable sounder with visual indicator.  Disability legislation increasingly requires visual alarm signals to be employed to ensure equal response from people with hearing impairment.

    ZP755HAV-2 devices are perfectly suited for this application and any application involving high levels of background noise.  It provides both audible and visual warnings from a single, addressable, loop wired unit.

    The ZP755W-2R is an addressable, weatherproof (IP33C) sounder and is developed for outdoor applications or for use in areas where the ingress of water can be expected, for example where hygiene requirements demand regular washing or hosing down of the protected area.

    The ZP755WV-2R is an addressable, weatherproof (IP33C) sounder/beacon and is developed for outdoor applications. It provides both audible and visual warnings from a single, addressable, loop wired unit.

  • Wireless Integration

  • Intelligent Beam Detection

    Beam detection

    The intelligent beam detector with automatic alignment comprises a transmitter, a receiver and an alignment motor in the same housing for quick and simple installation.  The detector automatically compensates for environmental effects on the beam signal by a combination of drift compensation and motorised realignment of the beam.

  • Intelligent manual call point

    Call points

    The intelligent manual call point has been designed to operate on a loop of intelligent fire detection devices.  An alarm is initiated by pressing the re-settable element.  The manual call point signals to the control and indicating equipment using an interrupt feature within the Apollo digital protocol.  An alarm status is indicated through the rotation of the re-settable element, displaying yellow and black indication bars and a solid red LED.  The manual call point can be easily reset from the front using the supplied reset key.
