Fire alarm solution enables building systems control
March 16, 2010
Fire-Lite Alarms by Honeywell has released a UL-listed fire alarm relay module with enclosure, designed to enable the control of building systems such as fans, dampers and elevators during emergencies. The ROME (Relay Option Module Enclosure) can be installed up to 1,250 feet away from an addressable fire alarm control panel to provide as many as 10 programmable relays for control of various building systems' functions.
The ROME's relay module communicates with the control panel over two-wires with an additional two wires used to provide 24-Volt DC power. Alternatively, a single four-conductor unshielded cable may be used for both power and data communications. Moreover, the relay module requires minimal programming.
