Digital Monitoring Products (DMP) announced that the Canadian versions of its XR100 and XR500 Command Processor Panels™ have earned the ULC listing as a Fire Communicator for use with Network and Cellular communication paths – ULC S559-
04 Equipment for Fire Signal Receiving Centers and Systems. This new listing allows a separate Fire Alarm Control Panel (FACP) to use the XR100 and XR500 panel as the fire communicator. The panels communicate fire alarm, fire trouble, AC trouble, battery trouble, and ground fault for the FACP.
“The XR100/XR500 panels stand out for their communication capabilities,” said DMP Vice President of Sales, Mark NeSmith. “With the receipt of the ULC authorization, dealers in Canada have a new communication option for their FACP systems. The XR100/XR500 provides them with the ability to add up to eight communication paths to FACP systems, providing multiple layers of redundancy and increased confidence in panel-to-Central Station communication.”
DMP XR100/XR500 panels are reliable security performers used in a range of commercial applications. The panels can include any combination of Network, Cell, and Dial-Up communications. Cellular and Network communication can be used alone or together, with either serving as the primary or backup communication path.
The ULC certification applies to Canadian XR100 and XR500 panels (CAN suffix) in a Model 350 (large) cabinet enclosure.
