The modules act as an interface between the fire detection loop and external devices on heating, ventilation and air conditioning networks.
The addressable modules can be used to monitor sensory devices via its input terminals and then activate fire control mechanisms such as control of fire shutters, sprinklers, ventilation and air conditioning equipment via its output terminals.
The input modules can supervise devices for alarm, short, open, and earth conditions.
The modules are available in various sizes and designs to suit different conditions in commercial and industrial sites and for greater flexibility in installing in standard electrical boxes.
The devices are powered from the same fire detection loop which connects the fire alarm control panel, detectors, beacons, manual call points, etc. Therefore, additional power supply sources are not required.
The new VELOX 40000 modules is a leading technology in alarm systems, fully microprocessor loaded, allowing five selection of input / output choices. Mainly, they are classified into three categories: Supervised Inputs: Accepting fire or fault signals from third party equipment and reverts it back to the VELOX Fire Alarm Control Panel. Moreover, this function can be fully programmed from the VELOX fire alarm control panel. Supervised Output: This category is to drive third party outputs by providing 24Vdc supply to those modules; such as conventional sounders, flashers, damper coils, and many other devices. The complete line is supervised for Open and Short faults, as well as the power supply feed.
VELOX wants to make it easy to the installer, neither dip or rotary switches are required to address the devices, nor barcode scanners or other difficult methods of installation are needed. Automatic addressing is an added benefit to the many others of VELOX technology, where the fire alarm control panel addresses each device in a sequential manner , and makes sure that no duplicate addresses are allowed. Furthermore, when needed to assign an address in a non-sequential fashion, the manual programming via the VELOX detector programming tool is utilized.
