The Gamewell-FCI Smart Link™ Network provides a peer to-peer interface that allows up to 250 Gamewell-FCI, 600 Series Fire Alarm Control Panels (FACPs) to be linked in a network.
The Gamewell-FCI Smart Link™ Network provides a peer to-peer interface that allows up to 250 Gamewell-FCI, 600 Series Fire Alarm Control Panels (FACPs) to be linked in a network. Each FACP (node) maintains its own program specific to its area of protection while communicating with the network system. All events are displayed on every panel’s LCD annunciators and any point of annunciation can be programmed to be a point of control. This feature allows each panel to signal and control elements in its own area based on alarms and other conditions occurring in other panels.
The SmartLink™ network with NFPA Class A Style 7 network cabling provides the greatest overall system reliability possible. If a panel or any other type of node becomes isolated from the network, the network will “heal” itself around the isolated node and continue to operate normally. Any isolated panel will revert to stand-alone operation with full local programming. The SmartLink™ system will also support Class B connections. No main polling computer is required. Control-by-event programming allows selected groups of input devices to be logically arranged to selected groups of output devices or circuits in individual panels. In a SmartLink™ network, a panel in alarm broadcasts information that includes point, input group assignment, and an event code. This single broadcast message is received simultaneously by all panels on the network. Using SmartLink™, the network control-by-event function can be employed to tie events to output devices or circuits in panels other than just the panel of origin within the network.Features & Benefits:
