The Protec Hercules PC software is a powerful alarm management tool and graphical user interface designed to work with Protec Intelligent Addressable

Fire Systems, Cirrus-Pro Aspirating Fire Detectors or DigiLite Emergency Lighting Test and Monitoring Systems.

The software provides a cost effective solution for all types of installation, and is suitable for use with single panel to multisite applications.

Hercules 6 allows the users to manage their fire alarm, aspirating or emergency lighting system efficiently from one or more convenient locations. Each workstation provides full control of the system, whether connected to a single panel or multipanel network. All current and historical event information is available with the click of a mouse. Users can monitor and interrogate their systems to ensure alarms are detected and dealt with quickly and efficiently.

The system is monitored such that if any connection failures between the alarm panel and the PC are detected both systems will show fault. Connections to CirrusPro and DigiLite Systems are purely Ethernet based and require local network access.

The Hercules 6 software not only delivers alarm information, it also records system events and faults, allowing the generation of detailed reports.

A series of graphics screens show the position of all addressable devices and provides a visual indication of their status. An easily used selection system permits rapid selection of a particular screen. To help locate particular devices large areas are broken down into a series of sub screens. The location of a device during an alarm, fault, disablement or test condition is further enhanced by flashing crosshatched sections indicating the area containing the active device.
