Fire Detection Control Panel BC216-1INT1 – 214008

The Fire Detection Control Panel BC216-1/INT1 is a modularly designed compact control panel for small and medium size fire detection systems. Depending on the boards inserted you can connect fire detectors, fault detectors and condition detectors as well as actuation elements and alarming devices to a maximum of 2 ADM loops, or to a maximum of 16 detector lines in addressable conventional technology, or to a combination of both. Thanks to its wide range of possible logic combinations for alarming and transmitting devices as well as for actuations, the control panel can realise even extensive and complex alarming and control tasks in the fire alarm technology. It was tested, according to the Construction Products Directive CPD, for compliance with the European Standards EN 54-2 and EN 54-4, including all options for the highest safety demands, and is VdS certified. If required, the Fire Detection Control Panel BC216-1 can be expanded to become an Extinguishing Control Panel LC216-1. This panel can control and monitor up to 8 flooding zones. The extensive functions and features are summarised in the description of the Extinguishing Control Panel Series LC216, Art. No. 218990T. The control panel is installed in a wall-mount cabinet made of powder coated sheet steel and prepared for 2 function modules (Conventional Detector Interface GIF8-1, Loop Interface LIF64-1 or LIF128-1), a Fire Brigade Interface FWI2-1, a Fire Brigade Interface Additional Board FWZ2-1, an LED Display Field LAB48-1, a Serial Interface Module SIM216-1 and additional optional componentries as well as stand-by batteries with 2 × 12V/max. 22Ah. The labels of the display and operating elements as well as the displayed and printer texts are in English language

Micro-processor technology with diverse redundant processing logic

Administration of up to 144 detector zones for manual call points, automatic fire detectors with or without alarm verification, technical messages and fault detectors with or without self-resetting property

Administration of 10 transmitting devices, 99 alarming devices, 128 actuations and 199 sectors

Easy control panel operation thanks to freely parameterisable sectors

INFO field with a 4 line by 20 character backlit text display providing information about all current events in English

Info button for additional information on the current events

Event memory with quick-search filter displays the latest 500 events in chronological order

Display of activation, fault, disablement, alarm delay, call fire brigade and confirmation of the transmitting device to the fire brigade

Monitored output for the connection of external signalling devices with display of activation, fault or disablement

Dry contact outputs for summary alarm and summary fault

16 open-collector outputs which can be freely parameterised as transmitting devices, alarming devices, actuations or other output functions

„and/or“-combinations for the activation of actuations, transmitting devices or alarming devices, depending on messages from detector zones or single detectors, respectively

Collective reset of all current alarms via “Panel reset” button

Hierarchized authorisation levels for operation and parameterisation, secured via numeric codes

Alarm delay with dead-man’s handle controlled by internal timer which can be set separately for each day of the week

Start and end date of Daylight Saving Time according to EU directive or freely parameterisable One-man test condition

Non-resettable electronic alarm counter

Two integrated serial interfaces

Integrated INFO bus for the connection of fire brigade control units and intelligent remote indication units

Connection of a serial protocol printer via an optional data interface

Control panel recognises all control panel components and loop elements by means of auto-setup during first commissioning

Connection of detectors via unshielded 2-wire cabling

Stand-by batteries 2 × 12V/max. 22Ah can be installed in the control panel’s housing

The parameters of the control panel can be set up and transmitted to the control panel quickly and reliably by means of a PC and the Windows Parameter Setup Software PARSOFT-1. Additionally, the parameter setup can also be realised without any further tools using the keypad of the integrated display and operating field of the control panel or by means of a commercially available PC keyboard
