Fire-Lite Alarms has enhanced two of its addressable fire alarm control panels, the MS-9200UDLS and the MS-9600UDLS. Both panels offer faster polling speeds and support lower cost wire and annunciation devices. A factory-installed digital alarm communicator with upload/download capabilities coupled with a USB port and Microsoft Windows-based programming tools are additional innovations. A fully loaded 9200 panel supports 198 devices, while the 9600 panel supports 636 devices. They can activate notification circuits within 10 seconds using the supplier's LiteSpeed technology, a patented protocol used to poll detection devices in groups of 10. This polling scheme enables all system devices to be wired using standard twisted, unshielded wire over an increased distance up to 10,000 feet per loop.
