Technology Presentation for Campus Fire Forum 2011
SIMPLEX® 4100ESTM (ESERVICES) FIRE ALARM CONTROL PANEL
by Rodger Reiswig, Director, Industry Relations
and Chris Dawes, Project Engineer
Introducing the Simplex® 4100ESTM (eServices) Fire Alarm Control Panel.The next-generation life-safety
platform delivers added power, Internet connectivity and remote service capabilities.
SimplexGrinnell® has led the industry with the 4100U system. Now, with the 4100ES platform, we’ve added
a suite of technology and service improvements that can make everyone’s job easier, from contractors to
facility managers and building owners, by improving serviceability, reducing costs and saving time.
• Increased connectivity helps reduce downtime
With TrueInsightSM Remote Service, the 4100ES system maintains a constant, highly secured connection to SimplexGrinnell. The technology enables our remote service center to be notified in the event of a trouble condition. Specialized service technicians can then perform a remote diagnosis of the system issue – an advancement that helps reduce maintenance time, service visits and business disruption.
• Secure storage for improved access and compliance
Our Mass Storage Device stores and archives vital data within the panel, such as system software programs, as-built drawings for the fire alarm system, inspection/test reports and other critical site information. No extra cabinets are needed in the control room, and everything is within easy reach. Plus, the Mass Storage Device is supervised so you can be alerted in the event of removal or failure.
• Easier installation and upgrades
Projects that require a phased installation can leverage the benefits of Install Mode. While in this mode, the 4100ES will provide a single system trouble alert for points that are programmed in the system but haven’t yet been wired—or are wired but not yet commissioned.
