The CSimon fire protection system is the newest member of Computrols’ family of building automation products. CSimon not only delivers cutting edge analog addressable fire detection and control, but it also integrates seamlessly with 3rd party devices as well as Computrols’ legendary CBAS software. Each CSimon panel boasts an on-board high-speed TCP/IP network connection, complete stand-alone operation, and a powerful yet simple user interface.
With our recent UL listing (UL864 Ninth Edition), the system is now authorized for distribution. This panel integrates fully with Computrols’ CBAS software and performs a multitude of functions rarely found in any one existing fire system currently on the market. The system supports end field devices from Apollo, Edwards, FCI, Fire-Lite, Honeywell and Notifier for both Class A and Class B systems.
The main system, or MCU (Master Control Unit), accommodates up to 5 SLC cards, each supporting either 1 class A SLC circuit or 2 class B SLC circuits. Depending on the configuration, a single MCU can support over 600 end field devices. In addition, each MCU can utilize up to 16 slave units to provide ample coverage for most any application.
One of the features of the system is a walk test allowing for devices to be put into alarm or disconnected from the system without any notification devices being activated. You may select to enable the walk test either by signaling line circuit or by zone. All changes to the system can be recorded to an optional UL listed printer.
To aid in reduction of false alarms, the CSimon fire panel provides an optional Alarm Verification status for smoke detectors. When enabled, sensors in smoke prone or noisy areas that go into alarm will go into a verification period. If the device does not alarm again within this period, the panel will reset the device. Conversely, should it be triggered again in the verification period, the panel will go into alarm.
