The SmartLoop series of analogue addressable fire control panels marks a clear evolution from previous generations.
This series has solutions to satisfy all market segments: from small domestic applications requiring 1 loop to large applications requiring 8 loops. At maximum configuration a SmartLoop system can support 30 control panels (arranged in a token-ring) and, if you consider that each control panel can manage up to 8 loops, and that each loop can accommodate as many as 240 devices, it is clearly apparent that the cutting-edge technology of the SmartLoop series has achieved excellence in application flexibility.
The SmartLoop series has been specially designed to provide enhanced features, best-in-class performance, simple end-user operation and trouble-free installation, all with the aim of helping the installer company to improve efficiency.These first-rate features have been made possibile by the appliance of multiprocessor architecture with self-diagnosis features co-ordinated by a 32 bit processor. This impressive hardware podium provides the processing resources necessary to ensure the highest levels of reliability, response speed, ease-of-use, connection simplicity, enhancement opportunities and flexibility.
The operational superiority of the SmartLoop system is rooted in the synergy of various state-of-the-art technologies: OpenLoop technology; HorNet token-ring technology; Emergency54 technology and Janus technology (refer to the “Technologies” section for details).
The SmartLoop control panel has 5 supervised outputs for alarm and fault signaling (the efficiency of these outputs is monitored continuously). It can identify and diagnose anomalous conditions and provide an ample spectrum of visual signals: alarm, pre-alarm, fault, early warning, bypass, test, monitor. All system status signaling is indicated on the display and on the system status LEDs. In addition to the supervised outputs, this control panel provides two relays for alarm and fault signaling and also an output for battery shutdown signaling.
If you wish to increase the number of on-panel inputs and outputs, you can install a 6-terminal SmartLoopINOUT expansion board. Each of the SmartLoopINOUT terminals can be set up to operate as either a supervised output; a supervised input or a conventional detector zone. This important feature is yet another innovation pioneered by INIM. These “three-option” terminals abolish the inflexibility normally found in conventional input/output expansion boards and also allow the control panel to manage zones with conventional detectors. The SmartLoop system provides an RS485 BUS for remote-control Repeater panel connections. Two Repeater models are available: SmartLetUSee/LCD with display; SmartLetUSee/LED with status LEDs. Repeater panels replicate all the fire alarm system data and allow users to access and control the system in accordance with their authorized access level. The RS485 BUS also accepts and manages a fire extinction control panel. Two models are available: SmartLine020-2EXT (sigle channel);SmartLine036-4EXT (single channel).
These fire extinction control panels are conventional panels from the SmartLine series and are equipped with a SmartLetLoose/ONE fire extinction board. All the control panels from the SmartLoop series support the SmartLoop/PSTN board which provides voice and digital dialler functions. Programming the system from the control panel is straightforward and trouble-free thanks to the easy-to-follow instructions on the display. The time-saving Self-Addressing feature (for the loop devices) simplifies the procedure even more. The system can also be programmed using SmartLeague software application (runs under Windows) which offers an easy-to-use graphic interface. This method will allow the installer to program the system on a home or office computer and download the pre-set data at a later time via RS232, USB or Ethernet (for SmartLAN enhanced systems).
The SmartLeague’s simple “drag and drop” operations will allow you to enjoy the convenience and ease of configuring the system with the visual help of a virtual system. The right-across-the-range components, reduced-complexity firmware, and optimized remote programming and diagnostic features keep the technicians time on site to a minimum. The SmartLoop fire control panel with its plain language excels in application flexibility. Its versatility and ease of operation makes it perfect for all market segments, from medium commercial applications to large facilities such as hospitals, shopping malls and airports.
