CAST Sounder Control Module

CA738

New

  • Allows a zone/circuit of conventional fire alarm sounders to be connectedto a CAST protocol fire alarm system.
  • Onboard short circuit loop isolator.
  • Conventional sounder circuit is continually monitored for open and short circuit faults.
  • 3mA typical alarm current (530uA typical quiescent current) @ 22-40V DC.
  • Can provide up to 50mA output current (taken from the CAST addressable loop).
  • Polling, sounder circuit active and sounder circuit fault indicators.

More Information

'CAST' is the world’s most-advanced 'distributed intelligence’ fire alarm system protocol. Conceived, designed and realised by C-TEC as part of a five-year, multi-million pound project, it involved the creation of a powerful proprietary communication protocol (C-TEC Addressable System Technology, CAST) and multiple control panels & field devices. Now available to purchase, its key features include:

• 255 devices per loop.
• Autonomous decision-making for faster response times.
• Multiple type codes.
• 40V loop drive voltage.
• Two ‘soft’ addressing options – automatic via the panel or manual via a powerful handheld programmer.
• Powerful multi-level addressing facilitates easy device addition and swapped device identification.
• Multiple functionality at a single address (integrated devices) - coming soon.
• Volumes, tones & detector modes can be changed at compatible panels.
• High-speed data transmission and robust data transfer.
• Intrinsically EN54-13 compliant.
• Provides geographical location of short and open circuit faults (a short circuit isolator is included as standard in every CAST field device).
• Replace device function.
• Future seamless integration with other CAST life safety systems reducing energy, servicing, installation and repair costs.
• Designed and manufactured in the UK.
