The Industrial Radio Alarm Control System (IRACS) is completely modular, self-contained system. The IRAC-20 is a heavy duty panel capable of operating in a wide range of temperatures and designed for detecting the operation of any approved signal initiating device, indicating by annunciator LEDs the area of the alarm condition, and operates all alarm and auxiliary devices.
The IRAC-20 is furnished in an indoor cabinet and has the maximum expansion of 20 zones. In addition, the modular IRAC-20 Panel has the optional capability of automatic radio reporting for alarms, supervisory, and trouble conditions with test status reporting for use with a compatible receiving unit.
The Model IRAC-20 Fire Alarm Control System is modular in its construction; and, can initially be installed and operated as a local control panel. The IRAC-20 Fire Alarm Control System’s primary function is to monitor up to 20 zones of emergency detection devices for the presence of an alarm condition.
When an initiating device detects an alarm condition, the IRAC-20 Panel begins an alarm sequence which can include automatic local annunciation, building evacuation, remote signalling, reporting, and optional extinguishing agent release.
