MMX Network Fire Detection & Alarm Control Unit

Secutron’s 63 node MMX Series Network Fire Alarm Control Units offer modular components to meet a wide variety of applications.

Secutron’s MMXTM Series Network Fire Alarm Control Units offer modular components to meet a wide variety of applications. Designed for peer-to-peer network communications, the MMX Series allows for a maximum of 63 nodes, while providing reliability, flexibility and expandability.

The MMX Series is a powerful system capable of providing network control, multi-channel voice evacuation and two-way fire fighter communications over a single pair of wires or fiber-optic cable. Each base unit consists of one intelligent signaling line circuit (SLC) capable of supporting 159 analog sensors and 159 addressable modules. In addition the base unit also consists of 4 Style Z/Y (Class A/B) Notification Appliance Circuits rated at 1.7 Amps each and a large back-lit alphanumeric LCD display. The audio control provides a multi-channel distributed audio system that allows for efficient emergency paging, evacuation signaling and fire fighters’ telephone communication. Each audio card cage supports a maximum of 4 QAA style amplifiers for a maximum of 180 watts per cabinet.

Secutron’s MMX Series provides a new level of expansion and flexibility by providing support for BACnet, Boolean logic, and real time 3D graphic monitoring and control. In addition the system supports three configuration files which allows for the system to be easily configured without taking the control units offline.

The modular design allows for site specific customization and the ability to meet local and national requirements.
