General

The Prescient

gaseous extinguishant control panel is powerful yet user-friendly and is
designed and manufactured to a high standard. The panel features approval to BSEN
12094-1:2003, BSEN 54-2 and 4 and is designed to BS7273 part 1.

The panel has extensive configuration options but is easy to install, programme and
operate. The removable chassis enables the engineer to first fix an empty cabinet and
then fit the chassis at the commissioning stage.

This is supported by comprehensive documentation on commissioning, operating,
maintenance and fault finding. In addition there is a comprehensive range of compatible
accessories available to meet most customer requirements.

Operation

Three fully-monitored detection zones are provided. Zones 1 and 2 normally provide first
stage and second stage fire conditions to allow extinguishant discharge (coincidence
detection zones). Zone 3 is an auxiliary zone for detection only purposes. Zone 4 is
used as a manual release zone.

Facilities

Three fully-monitored alarm circuits are provided, each rated at 0.5A with various
configuration options via the engineers DIL switch settings. Two circuits are designed
to provide audible warning of any fire condition and one circuit to provide an individually
distinct audible warnings of the of pre-discharge, discharged and emergency hold
condition.

Two fully-monitored actuator/solenoid circuits, each rated at 1A, operate simultaneously
upon extinguishant release.

An RS485 multi-drop circuit link supports up to 7 Status Controller/Indicators of either
type [basic or fully functional] mixed on the communication path. Additional terminals
and configuration options allows the engineer to configure the manual release, abort and
hold switches to either data comms or hard wired inputs as required.

Normally-open inputs provide for remote evacuate, silence alarms, system reset, lock-off
input, low pressure and gas discharged pressure switch input.

Outputs are provided for first stage signalling, second stage signalling, system
Discharged, common fire and common fault . These outputs may be configured as
either VF C/O contacts or monitored 24V (50mA) outputs. A system reset VF relay is
also provided.

Configuration

The use of DIL switches on the internal motherboard enables the engineer to easily
configure the extensive options available and view the panels configuration upon any
return visit. The DIL switch functions are listed in the technical specification of this
leaflet.
