Network Card

Product Overview

The Pertronic F100/F120 Network System can connect up to 99 nodes using the two-wire RS485 data communication loop connected to network cards at each panel or display. 34 nodes can be Pertronic F100A or F120A fire alarm control panels. The network is fault tolerant so that a single break or short-circuit anywhere in the communication loop will not compromise the operation of the system. A computer may be connected to any of the network cards to configure and program the network.
