Addressable Fire Alarm Systems
Addressable fire alarm systems are systems which have the capability of reporting unique information for each device to the FACP. Each device reports its specific address/location, descriptive designation, as well as status, for example device XXX is dirty, and needs service, is in alarm, or is in trouble plus a host of other information depending on the manufacturer. These devices are manufactured with this capability and cannot be interchanged with conventional type devices. Addressable devices typically have dip switches, rotary switches or need to be programmed in order to communicate with the FACP. Additionally, these devices communicate on a Signal Line Circuit (SLC) loop which allows for either Class B or Class A wiring.
