The ADEMCO 8-Zone LED Fire System Annunciator FSA-8, and 24-Zone LED Fire System Annunciator FSA-24, are add-on accessories that can be used with certain VISTA controls to provide the ability for a fire response unit to identify quickly and easily the point/zone of a fire. The LED's may also be used to annunciate other functions like monitoring door, critical equipment, etc.
A maximum of 4 FSA modules, in any combination, can be supported by the system. Each FSA module must use the ECP Bus, keypad-type protocol, and can support up to 24 LEDs dependent upon model selection. In addition, the FSA module provides power and system status with LEDs and control via Silence/Reset and Test buttons. An optional Fire System Annunciator Keyswitch Module (FSAKSM) is available to function in a manner similar to the Silence/Reset button of the FSA module. The difference between the Silence/Reset button and the FSAKSM is that when installed, the FSAKSM will unconditionally Silence and then Reset the Fire Partition, while the Silence/Reset button can be restricted from silencing or resetting the fire alarm system (dependent upon program selection. See “RST FIRE PTN”).
Since the ECP bus is used to connect the VISTA control to the FSA modules, any supported VISTA keypad may be located in proximity to the FSA module connecting to the same ECP bus. The maximum FSA system will consist of 4 FSA modules, 4 Keyswitch modules, and 4 keypads.
Up to 4 FSA modules may be located in different locations but displaying the same information via the LEDs. Alternately, they may be located in the same physical location but displaying the status of up to 96 unique zones.
