The remote keypad allows decentralized operation of a fire safety system. The design of the graphical user interface is identical to the fire panels. A color display shows all messages. The touch screen is for operation of a specific panel or the entire system. The userfriendly interface adapts to various situations. This causes correct operation that is simple and clear as well as targeted and intuitive. Panels and keypads of the AVENAR series and of the FPA-5000 series (MPC-xxxx-B and MPC-xxxx-C) can be combined in one panel network using the Ethernet and the CAN bus interfaces. In combination with an AVENAR panel 8000, the keypad can be used as a redundant panel controller. In this case, it cannot be used as a remote keypad. Power can be supplied by the panel and/or an external power supply unit. The housing of the remote keypad is designed for proper and clean installation at highly visible locations. It allows tilted installation and surface or flush wall mounting without requiring additional installation frames. The remote keypad is configured on a laptop using the FSP-5000-RPS programming software. The programming software enables further adaptation, e.g. to country-specific requirements and regulations.
Cable set FPE-8000-CRP is used to redundantly connect a panel controller to an AVENAR panel 8000 in accordance with EN 54-2 for systems with more than 512 elements. The redundant panel controller does not need a second small rail (PRS-0002-C) anymore.
