6400 Fire Alarm Control Panel
 
  • Cost Effective
  Distributed network of Display and Control Nodes (DCN’s) and Loop Processing Nodes (LPN’s) providing a cost effective solution for medium
and large sized buildings and sites.
   
  • Secure Network
  Wired as a loop, the network’s dual channel RS485 link ensures that no single fault will affect the system.
   
  • Easy To Install
  Alarm Sounders, Visual Alarm Devices, Interfaces, Manual Call Points and Sensors can all be loop powered.
   
  • Reduced False Alarms
  The Protec Algo-Tec™ 6000 interactive fire sensors utilise advanced discriminating algorithms for maximum reliability and immunity to false alarms.

The Protec Algo-Tec™ 6400 is a fully distributed, networked interactive digital addressable fire detection and alarm system, ideally suited for medium and large sized buildings such as hotels, offices, universities, hospitals and complex industrial and commercial sites.


Designed and manufactured by Protec, to comply with EN 54-2 & 4, the system architecture has been developed to provide a seamless network of Display and Control Nodes (6400/DCN’s) and Loop Processing Nodes (6400/LPN’s). The nodes can be located to suit the site structure and for convenience of wiring, enabling the loop and sounder circuit cabling to be wired locally to the nearest 6400/LPN and displayed at any 6400/DCN around the network. This eliminates the problem of routing all the system wiring to one central location, usually in the reception of a building or a security lodge with restricted space or access.
The integrity of the system is also increased as the network is secure and an isolated incident cannot render the entire system inoperative.
 

Node Options:

 

6400/DCN - Display and Control Node

Display and controls of the Algo-Tec™ 6400 system are via 6400/DCN’s. All the functions of the 6400/DCN are accessed via a modern styled hinged lockable door, moulded from polycarbonate, finished in storm grey with a clear display viewing window, optional polished solid brass or brushed stainless steel finishes for recess mounting only. When opened, the door allows access to the system controls.

Two full duplex RS232 ports that are site configurable for baud rate/handshaking are available for site programming and interfacing to BMS, Colour Graphics or Pager systems.


6400/LPN - Loop Processing Node

The 6400/LPN nodes process the loop data from the field devices, communicate with other network nodes, and implement the cause and effects program for local and network fire signals. Sounder circuits and auxiliary change-over contacts are also controlled from the 6400/LPN.


6400/DCN/LPN - Combined DCN and LPN (2 nodes)

The 6400/DCN and 6400/LPN are combined within a common enclosure. The appearance is the same as the 6400/DCN and uses the 6400/LPN back box to accommodate the cabling.
