  • Supports Boolean logic functions
  • Remote diagnostics via a built-in web server
  • UL listed for Smoke Control (UUKL).


Networking Features

The network configuration allows multiple MMX-4000 Series control panels to be connected using supervised Class A/B circuits to expand the available SLCs, input circuits, visual indication zones, programmable notification appliance circuits, relay outputs and monitor points in the application. The network interface module creates a robust peer-to-peer network via a proprietary protocol that ensures network segments operate independently in case of network impairment. The high baud rate of the network allows for multiplexing of control, audio, and telephony communications over a single copper or fiber interface using advanced compression algorithms. Twisted-Pair Copper, Single-Mode Fiber & Multi-Mode Fiber networking is supported.

  • Up to 63 nodes
  • Peer-to-peer network communications
  • Fully integrated digital network audio and control over a single pair of copper wire or fiber optic cable (single or multi-mode)
  • Remote diagnostics via a built-in web server and standard Ethernet port in every node
  • Style 4 (Class B) or Style 6 or 7 (Class A) wiring configuration
  • Proprietary ARCnet Network Communications protocol


MGC Protocol Features

For the new or retrofit expansion of existing applications, MGC Protocol, supports up to 240 devices per SLC Supports:

  • Photo, Heat, and Multi-criteria Sensors
  • Optional Built-In Isolation on Sensors
  • Multiple Input and Multiple Output modules


AP Protocol Features

Advanced Protocol (AP) supports up to 318 devices per SLC (159 sensors & 159 modules). Supports:

  • Smoke, Heat and Fire/CO detection
  •  Low Frequency 520 Hz sounder base support on both the addressable loop and through the audio/voice evacuation system.
  • Interrupt operation on the input side to speed detection of an event communication back to the panel
  • Group activation on the output to speed up actions on the outputs


CLIP Protocol Features

  • Address range for sensors S1-S99 – address range for modules M1-M99.
  • Wide range of addressable devices available.
