Product Overview

Pertronic FireMap® is an economical fire system management tool that adds advanced features to any fire system, including real-time monitoring and management of complex incidents from single or multiple PC workstations. The software captures, records, and displays fire alarm system events as they happen. Device and event locations are presented on a hierarchy of maps and floor plans.

In the event of an alarm, FireMap automatically displays the relevant map, highlighting the source of the alarm. The FireMap display is automatically updated as the incident develops.

FireMap promotes better preparedness, faster incident location, more effective response management, and accurate reconstruction and review of fire system events. The software streamlines and simplifies the preparation, storage and retrieval of site-specific information including fire system status; maps; floor-plans; equipment and facility details; and information about key personnel. User-friendly editing tools and automatic data capture make it easy to keep the information up-to-date.

When used with Pertronic Advanced Automatic Fire Detection Systems, Pertronic FireMap® provides intuitive system-wide control of one or more fire alarm panels directly from authorised FireMap workstations.

Monitor multiple sites
FireMap makes it easy to keep track of multiple fire alarm panels at widely dispersed locations.

Minimise nuisance alarms
Authorised users can perform administration tasks from a central location, minimising the risk of nuisance alarms triggered by activities such as maintenance.

Upgrade large complex systems
Pertronic FireMap® delivers significant benefits with any fire alarm panel. Complex systems can be upgraded, one panel at a time, without disturbing the FireMap system.

Manage dynamic sites
When used with Pertronic intelligent fire alarm panels, Pertronic FireMap® automatically recognises system changes and will report alarm conditions from a newly connected device, even before the new device has been placed on a map.

Capture and record incident history

FireMapTM automatically creates a permanent, easily-accessible record of the timing and location of important system events.

Add 21st century capabilities to legacy systems
The Pertronic Ethernet Gateway allows Pertronic FireMap® to work with any existing fire alarm system
