IQ8Control M Addressable

IQ8Control M 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 large areas such as industrial sites, shopping centers, buildings, offices and universities.

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

The loop operation type of the panel (powered-loop or non-powered-loop) can be selected via a jumper located on the power supply card.

Depending on which loop operation type has been selected, the corresponding analog module/modules should be used.
