April 10, 2006
Enhanced Features & More Power Continue IntelliKnight’s Excellence

MAPLE GROVE, Minn. Silent Knight, a provider of industry-wide compatible fire alarm solutions for small to mid-size institutions and commercial sites, introduces its expanded IntelliKnight Series. These newly designed addressable fire-alarm control panels offer enhanced features and benefits. The new panels now support synchronization of System Sensory A/V appliances and a USB programming port. The 5820XL boasts an improved power supply capacity of six amps and a new deaf-front option that allows for reset, silence and acknowledge functions without requiring a user code or operator’s key. Also, the IntelliKnight control panels are UL 9th Edition Listed, keeping up-to-code with the latest regulatory compliance requirements.

The IntelliKnight Series makes available the most suitable and most economical fire alarm solution for the institution or commercial site. Applications ranging from a small daycare or office building to a large campus environment in an industrial complex or a university campus can now benefit from the advanced features of one of the IntelliKnight fire systems. The IntelliKnight line of products features three control panels, the 5700 for smaller applications, the 5808 for medium size applications and the 5820XL for larger applications. Each of these innovative fire systems delivers state of the art capabilities in a cost-effective package.

No twisted or shielded cable is required to install any of the products in the IntelliKnight line. Standard wiring helps reduce installation costs on new installations and greatly speeds retrofit jobs where cable has already been run for an existing system. This means that users can upgrade an older conventional fire system for less money and with less hassle.

All products in the IntelliKnight series features drift compensation to maintain detector sensitivity at the proper level and to reduce the occurrence of false alarms due to dirty, dust-contaminated smoke detectors. Due to drift compensation, the products can pinpoint detectors that are approaching the limits of normal operation before a false alarm occurs by alerting the user of the problematic detector with pinpoint addressable accuracy. The alert is sent on-site via a trouble indication, or remotely via the built in digital communicator.
