DMP Fire Panel Now Has Eight Communication Options

The workhorse DMP XR500™ Command Processor Panel is a reliable security performer used in a range of commercial applications. Now, it can be used as a slave fire communicator with any separate Fire Alarm Control Panel (FACP) or as a standalone FACP using its own built-in communicator, you can configure the XR500 with up to eight separate communication options using three different technologies; Network, Cell, or Dial-Up.  

A DACT (digital alarm communicator transmitter) system may be configured as:

     Path 1 Type DD Primary and Path 2 Type DD Backup
           Path 1 Type DD Primary and Path 2 Type CELL Backup
           Path 1 Type DD Primary and Path 2 Type NET Backup

 A NET or CELL  System may be configured as:

    Path 1 Type NET Primary with no Backup
           Path 1 Type CELL Primary with no Backup
           Path 1 Type NET Primary and Path 2 Type DD Backup
           Path 1 Type NET Primary and Path 2 Type CELL Backup
           Path 1 Type CELL Primary and Path 2 Type NET Backup

The XR500 recently gained added versatility when it earned UL864 certification as a slave communicator in commercial fire installations, compatible with any FACP.

Dealers can upgrade existing XR500 panels to add cellular communications by adding the 436G Digital Communicator, an easy-to-install expansion card that creates a direct, wireless communications path to any DMP Central Station receiver.

Existing XR500 panels must have version 205 software to be used as a fire communicator.  Please refer to section 31 in the XR500 installation manual for programming information.
