Touchscreen Fire Control System

Touchscreen Fire Control System


Advanced global fire systems business has launched TouchControl, its new Touchscreen Fire System Repeater and remote control terminal which features Active Maps and zone plans. TouchControl uses its 10” HD touchscreen to deliver all the panels and network control and monitoring features you’d expect from Advanced, plus dynamic graphics and zone plans called Active Maps. Active Maps allow any image from a technical drawing, a zone plan, photograph, even a Google map image to be used to display fire info, with multiple views available allowing users to interrogate the status of zones in a site from different angles or scales. Advanced’s Map App software makes it simple and easy to add map images and associate them with a zone. When not used in Active Map view, it features a unique, colour-coded interface that clearly displays device, zone and network information, using the large 10” HD touchscreen to facilitate easy control and interrogation. Users can immediately identify zones and devices in fire, fault, disablement, test or normal operation via colour-coded status buttons. TouchControl is a network node in its own right, working in standard or fault tolerant modes. Designed to be recessed and flush fitting, its low profile design will enhance any architectural environment and can be used in areas from receptions to nurses’ stations where network control, aesthetics or simply communicated detailed information are required. The background image can be easily changed to show any image from site plans to logos or products. A surface mount option is also available.
