SIEMENS New Fire Panels From Siemens Make Upgrades Easy

As well as being a versatile and cost-effective choice for use in new installations, the new Sinteso FC2030 and FC2060 fire control panels from Siemens Fire Safety make it straightforward to modernise and expand existing installations with a minimum of cost and disruption.

The new panels are easy to connect to existing addressable collective detector lines and their automatic addressing and configuration features mean that they can readily be set up to match existing detector groups and alarm configurations. Controls for fire protection doors, extinguishing system, evacuation measures, lifts and ventilation can also be integrated easily via I/O modules.

Since these features allow upgrading work to be carried out quickly and without the need for extensive rewiring, the length of time for which the system is out of service is minimised – an important safety benefit.

The new Sinteso FC2030 panels can accommodate two loops with up to 252 field devices, while the FC2060 panels can accommodate four loops with up to 512 field devices. For larger systems, the FC2060 can be expanded to work with a maximum of 1,512 field devices
The modular system architecture allows as many as 32 panels to be networked together via a fire control network, with a maximum distance between panels of 1,000 m. This can be extended to 15,000 m by using repeaters or fibre optic links, making it possible to provide protection for large and complex sites, and also those sites where the protection system is required to cover multiple buildings.

Using their BACnet interface, the new Sinteso panels can form the basis of a comprehensive danger management system. To facilitate installation on sites where Ethernet has been adopted as the networking standard, they also include an Ethernet interface.

The user interface of the Sinteso FC2030 and FC2060 fire control panels has been specifically developed to provide easy, intuitive operation. Standard keypads are used to access commonly performed functions, while interactive displays guide users step-by-step through more advanced functions.

For applications where it is necessary to monitor and operate the new panels remotely, Siemens offers SintesoView, which allows the panel’s operating display to be viewed on a PC connected via a secure communications link. All of the functionality of the Sinteso panel, including the monitoring of alarms and the initiation of control functions, is accessible from the remote PC.
