Edition 13


Last month, we announced that we were offering same day despatch on our Sigma CP range of conventional fire control panels. The scheme is now in its second month, and has been a resounding success. Of orders that met "the rules" 100% were despatched on time.

Sigma XT Ancillary Board - S588

There is sometimes a requirement to extend signals from the extinguishing system for additional plant control or other signaling applications such as interfaces to BMS systems or house fire alarm systems.

The Sigma XT is equipped with a selection of volt free contacts which are often adequate for this purpose. For applications that require more outputs from the system, the Sigma XT ancillary board is available.
Up to seven ancillary boards may be connected to the status unit serial bus to provide distributed control and signaling at multiple locations if required.

Sigma CP Ancillary Board - S580

The versatility of Sigma CP conventional fire panels can be further enhanced by fitting Sigma CP ancillary boards.

The Sigma CP ancillary board connects to the RS485 serial bus of the control panel and provides the ability to extend fire, fault and coincidence signals to remote locations up to 1200 metres from the control panel using only two wires (four if powered by the main panel).
