Bosch Security Systems Inc. has launched the FPD-7024, an IP-ready Fire Alarm Control Panel designed to work seamlessly with Bosch's Conettix DX4020 Ethernet Network Interface Module. The FPD-7024 delivers faster alarm reporting over local or wide area networks and reduces operating costs for end users by eliminating the need to purchase multiple phone lines for their central station monitoring services.

The new scaleable control panel enables Bosch dealers to address the
safety concerns of a wide array of applications with one flexible
solution. Customers can install the conventional FPD-7024 to minimize
upfront costs and fulfill future needs with the panel’s expansion
capability. The conventional model is ideal for small projects, such as
mercantile and religious facilities.

Upgrading from conventional to addressable technology helps end users
protect existing investments while gaining advanced functionality. The
addressable model offers up to 247 points to facilitate identification
of the exact device in alarm, meeting the needs of office buildings,
warehouses, lodging establishments, and other similar-sized

The FPD-7024 also provides an LCD and LED faceplate viewable from the
exterior of the locked control panel. This feature offers enhanced
situational awareness and improves communication of life-saving
information, while maintaining system keypad security.

The FPD-7024 offers easy programming directly from the built-in keypad,
via a local laptop and a DX4010i RS-232 Serial Interface Module, or
remotely through a phone line or the Conettix DX4020 module. Users can
also respond to events without going to the panel using a remote keypad
or Annunciator.
