4-Way Programmable Sounder Card4-Way Programmable Sounder Card

The Programmable 4-Way Sounder Card is an optional peripheral unit that provides four individually programmable, and monitored, sounder output circuits compliant with BSEN54-2: 1998 Clause 7.8.

Up to 16 cards can be connected to a multi-loop panel providing a maximum of 64 additional local sounder outputs. Each output is fully programmable using the powerful dynamic cause-and-effect rules, and all outputs are synchronised.

The unit is available as either a printed circuit card only or as a boxed version with integral 4A power supply.

Applications / Limitations

EN54-2 compliant sounder outputs.

Can be used with MxPro 4 2, 4 & 8 loop control panels programmed with version 020-02 software, or later, and fitted with base card hardware revision levels 10 (712-1022 MxPro 5 4 loop) and 09 (712-1022-002 MxPro 5 2 loop) or later.

Requires installation of the Peripheral Bus Interface Adaptor card in the panel when using the MxPro 4 series.
