Advanced panel design, combined with high sensitivity smoke and fire sensing, enables ZP3 not only to identify and disregard conditions, which would result in false or unwanted alarms – but to recognise real fires sooner – limiting inconvenience and reducing downtime to a minimum. Scaleable in every aspect, the ZP3 system offers tailor made engineered solutions for all applications, from single panel systems to large multi panel networks. Modular design backed by powerful software enables ZP3 systems to be configured exactly to the needs of any commercial or industrial site.Control panels are available in 1, 2, and 4 loop sizes, accommodating up to 508 sensing addresses. For larger systems, panels can be networked together to form installations capable of controlling over 50,000 devices from 100 control panels. Up to 127 line devices (sensors, callpoints, sounders or interface units) can be connected to each of the control panel loops. All loop devices incorporate switch settings enabling them to be assigned a unique address, the location of which is pinpointed and polled by the panel every two seconds. Variations in the sensors environment caused by increases of temperature or products of combustion, are reported to the panel, where they are processed and compared to known fire data, prior to any alarm output being activated.Constant communication between control panel and sensor, enables ZP3 to provide a wide range of user facilities including pre alarm, constant sensitivity adjustment and service and near service listings for all sensor types.Software flexibility enables facilities such as alarm organisation, evacuation procedures and complex cause and effect requirements to be easily programmed into any system.All customer and site data is held in non volatile flash memory, ensuring both ease of initial system data input and subsequent on site amendments and modifications should they occur.The ZP3 panel can control fire and non fire functions, loop powered sounders, remote control and remote display panels, with up to 128 zones with 768 programmable inputs and outputs per panel, all covered by comprehensive programming facilities.Ideal for systems of all sizes the ZP3 is designed with true scalability – it’s operation, facilities and levels of protection are the same from single panel, to large multi site network – meaning that you can start small and add phases as the system and site develop, saving large initial capital outlays for hardware not required until later stages of development.
