DSC Unveils New PowerSeries Control Panels and Keypads

April 6, 2006

CONCORD, ON, Canada, Wednesday April 05, 2006– Tyco Fire & Security is very pleased to announce an unparalleled new product introduction of 10 easy-to-sell new DSC PowerSeries keypads, one stunning new touchscreen and three future-smart control panels. With more than 100 added features, the DSC PowerSeries establishes a whole different level of value with an advanced new technology platform.

The new DSC PowerSeries provides a higher level of security, with all three panels compliant with the SIA CP-01 false alarm prevention standard and EN50131-1/3. The new range supports wireless, video, IP, wireless communicators, home automation, plus provides added headroom for the future. They feature a 500-event buffer, programmable daylight savings time, night zone, automatic Contact ID and partitionable auto-arm timer.

The DSC engineering team spent several years working with key customers to develop a platform that strikes a balance between advanced technical innovation and popular, practical systems—systems that are easy to sell, easy to install, easy to program, easy to upgrade and easy to use.

Tyco’s Intrusion Security team has planned for a very simplified transition from the existing platform to the new by maintaining the same programming, backward compatibility and total support, while vastly improving the value for customers.

This major introduction epitomizes the vibrant innovation atmosphere in the DSC labs, because these 14 new products are accompanied by numerous other introductions in wireless, monitoring, communicators, detectors and so on. This is a very big year for DSC products at ISC West.
