Overview - 8 Zone Modules

  • A8 AC Auxilliary Power Distribution
  • D8 DC Auxilliary Power Distribution
  • F8 FAI Power Distribution

Features

  • Fused or power limited versions
  • Per zone programming capability
  • A8
        • 24 or 28V AC zone select
  • D8
        •12 or 24V DC in dual V system
        • Continuous or switched DC in
           single voltage system
  • F8
       In dual V system, zone select for:
         • Fire alarm overide
         • Failsafe or Failsecure lock power
         • 12 or 24V DC continuous

Flexibility

  • Simple field selectable switch sets output voltage.
  • FlexConnect system minimizes installation labor by using board buss structure to eliminate accessory board interwiring

Expandability

  • Expand number of voltage outputs in increments of eight
  • Add FAI functionality on a per zone basis
  • Add simultaneous failsafe – failsecure voltage outputs
  • Pre-punched cabinet layout allows expansion board additions with minimal labor

A8 power distribution modules provide 8 protected AC outputs for use by a CCTV system. Each output is selectable for up to two AC voltages based on the FPA transformer being used.

D8 power distribution modules provide 8 protected DC outputs for use by a lifesafety system. When used in a single voltage system, each individual voltage output zone may be programmed for a continuous output or to respond to a fire alarm interface for control of egress locks. When used in a dual voltage system, each individual voltage output zone may be programmed for a continuous voltage of either voltage or, to respond to a fire alarm interface for control of egress locks at one of the two system voltages.

F8 power distribution modules expand on the D8 capability by adding failsafe, failsecure, and FAI programming to each of the 8 voltage outputs as well as selection of either voltage in a dual voltage system, providing six programming choices per zone.

Both the D8 and F8 modules may be used for lock control or power distribution in an access control system and for door holder power in a fire system.
