IQ8Control C Addressable

IQ8Control C is an addressable fire control panel, suitable for medium-sized facilities. It ensures simultaneous management of all elements connected to the control panel, including elements on the loop, integrated inputs and outputs as well as all remote control and display devices. It is possible to select the esserbus® or essebus®-Plus technology via an electric jumper on the central power supply. Ideal for widespread areas with the presence of small structures belonging to the same property, such as university campuses, widespread hotels, research centers, bank branches.

The IQ8Control C is an efficient fire alarm control panel for the property supervision of small to mid-sized objects facilitates simultaneous detection, control and alarm signaling both on the analog ring as well as on the spur.

Within the multi-functional IQ8Control C panel, the operation type (powered-loop or non-powered-loop) can be selected via a jumper located on the control panel power supply unit.

Depending on which loop operation type has been selected, the corresponding loop module/modules are required.
