Notifier’s Onyx Series becomes UL 864 Ninth Edition listed

NORTHFORD, Conn. – NOTIFIER, part of Honeywell Fire Systems, proudly announces that its ONYX Series of intelligent fire alarm control systems is UL 864 Ninth Edition listed. As a world leading manufacturer of commercial fire alarm technology and systems, NOTIFIER has engineered the ONYX Series of intelligent fire alarm control panels to speed alarm response, simplify maintenance and usability, and maximize flexibility.

The ONYX Series is comprised of the NFS-320 for small applications such as restaurants, strip malls, and standalone retail facilities, the NFS2-640 for mid-size applications like office buildings, assisted living facilities, and school buildings, and the NFS2-3030 for larger installations such as high-rise buildings, hospitals, shopping malls, and airports.

All ONYX Series panels features NOTIFIER’s patented FlashScan intelligent device polling protocol, which exceeds worldwide code requirements for response time. This, combined with ONYX Intelligent Sensing technology, an integral part of all ONYX Series panels, ensures a faster response to smoke and heat conditions while substantially reducing nuisance alarms. Each panel also offers built in synchronization protocol for System Sensor, Wheelock, and Gentex notification appliances.

To accommodate future facility growth and expansion, all panels have the ability network together via the NOTI•FIRE•NET intelligent fire alarm network. Additionally, for installations requiring a single point of control over fire, security, CCTV, and access control systems, there is the ONYXWorks, a PC-based graphical workstation that can unite life safety and security systems located throughout a building, city, state or even worldwide, through Local or Wide Area Networks.
