Fire-Lite Introduces MS-9600LS Fire Alarm Panel

Addressable fire alarm control panel operates on "open" wire


NORTHFORD, Conn.-- Fire-Lite Alarms, the leading manufacturer of quality life safety systems and a Honeywell division, introduces the MS-9600LS, a two loop advanced addressable fire alarm control panel. Ideal for retrofit projects, the new MS-9600LS communicates to devices over standard, unshielded fire wire up to 10,000 feet, allowing conventional systems to be updated to addressable systems without replacing the wire thus providing significant savings.

Unlike previous systems that polled each detector or module, the MS-9600LS panel uses high speed communications called LiteSpeedT that simultaneously polls ten devices. This new technology provides a fast cycle time from inception of alarm detection to point of notification and permits up to 318 devices per loop to be polled in less than 10 seconds. When fitted with the second loop card (SLC-2) the panel accommodates a total of 636 devices, 318 detectors and 318 modules.

The panel features more room for wiring with a larger enclosure and new chassis that can be removed quickly with just two screws. The new chassis permits the electronics to be removed and protected during construction or building rehab.

The panel will be available by January 2006. Please check www.FireLite.com for availability.
