Napco Commercial Firewolf-Series System Advantages:
- Easy Wire Compatibility - SLC controller supports shielded, unshielded, twisted and untwisted wire - ideal for retrofits
- Longer SLC loop lengths, support more device loads each, too (see below for distance at maximum device load in alarm/standby each):
- 10,000 ft. #14AWG 6,200 ft. #16AWG 4,000 ft. #18AWG
- Support for Legacy and Existing Notification Appliances -One NAC output configurable for 12V for compatibility for easy retrofit compatibility
- UL Regulated NAC outputs
- Automatic drift compensation for smoke detectors
- Annunciators have flash-able firmware – for updates via Quickloader command
- Programmable obscuration level by smoke detector device
- Smoke Obscuration Report genererated remotely or locally or in any of 3 ways - Quickloader device sensitivity report allows the printout of a report for the AHJ listing the current status of all smoke detectors in the system including the programmed obscuration level and the actual sensitivity reading for each device. This report can be generated remotely (uploaded) or locally through notebook PC or use optional onsite printer.
- Full line of UL Commercial Devices for more flexibility & labor-savings Example, Use Gemini Commercial Wireless 2-input module (GEMC-WL-WD2) to convert any UL listed fire device into a UL wireless device, ideal for sprinkler supervisories or for use with pull stations (mounts on top of wall/conduit or in deep sngle-gang box (plastic).
- Separate 7Amp 4-NAC Extender (GEM-NAC7) – 4 onboard NACs with up to 2A ea., expandable for up to 24 per system. Up to 16Ah total battery capacity. Regulated 24V Aux. power. Monitors AC, battery trouble, tamper and ground fault on Napco bus - Also Provides Universal FACP support for easy standardization in upgrades
