MxPro 5 - General Routing InterfaceGeneral Routing Interface

The General Routing Interface General Routing interface Card is an optional module to provide fire routing outputs compliant with BS EN54-2: 1998 Clauses 7.9 and 8.9 and BS5839-1:2002

Applications / Limitations

EN54-2 compliant routing interfaces providing monitored outputs to fire alarm and routing circuits. Circuits are monitored for open and short circuit conditions in both normal and active mode - compliance with EN54-2 and BS5839-1: 2002 Clause 12.2.1a

The outputs will drive relay coils with impedances of between 1kΩ and 5kΩ.

Key Features

  • Two fire routing outputs are provided to differentiate between Call Point (MCP) and Automatic Detector (AFD) fire alarm signals if required.
  • Outputs are monitored for open and short circuit wiring issues in both the quiescent and active states, and fault conditions reported on the panel (CIE) display/LED Indicators.
  • Outputs are compatible with a wide range of routing equipment.
  • Simple to install and configure
  • Monitored outputs
  • Wide range compatibility
