Tyco SimplexGrinnell Introduces Smart New Fire Alarm Panel
for Small- and Mid-Sized Projects and Applications
Simplex 4007ES Panel Offers the Benefits of Advanced Technology in a Smaller Package
LAS VEGAS, Nevada (June 9, 2014) – Furthering its commitment to bring customers the benefits of technology and innovation, Tyco SimplexGrinnell is introducing the Simplex 4007ES – a small, expandable fire alarm panel offering features and functionality normally associated with large systems.
Designed specifically for small- and mid-sized projects, the Simplex 4007ES panel meets a key market need and expands Tyco SimplexGrinnell’s eServices capabilities. eServices is the integrated suite of technology and service capabilities that greatly enhances the overall value and cost efficiency that Tyco SimplexGrinnell can provide in fire and life-safety environments.
The Simplex 4007ES panel, being demonstrated for the first time at the Tyco SimplexGrinnell booth (#1225) at the NFPA Expo in Las Vegas, can provide reliable, cost-effective protection for new construction, upgrade projects and retrofit applications. At the same time, the 4007ES panel can connect customers to the value-added benefits of eServices technology – more design flexibility, easier installation, improved operational efficiency, robust data management and reporting, and lower life-cycle costs.
“The introduction of the Simplex 4007ES panel represents a key advancement in technology and our ability to serve the needs of customers in the small- and mid-sized market,” said John Haynes, Global Director of Simplex products, Tyco Fire Protection Products. “The new panel enables us to use addressable technology to deliver game-changing features and value while also supporting customers looking for cost-efficient, forwarding-looking retrofit solutions. As a technology leader, Tyco is excited to bring the industry a small panel with large panel capabilities.”
The Simplex 4007ES comes in two distinct models and with a 4.3-inch color touchscreen display, enabling buildings owners, facility managers, architects and engineers to meet the range of fire and life-safety protection needs in small schools, medical office buildings, strip malls, restaurants and other similarly sized applications.
Simplex 4007ES Addressable Panel: This panel brings the benefits of TrueInsight remote fire alarm system diagnostics and TrueAlert ES addressable notification to new construction projects. TrueInsight Remote Service alerts expert Tyco SimplexGrinnell technicians to system issues and upcoming maintenance needs, such as detectors that will soon need cleaning. For TrueInsight customers, Tyco SimplexGrinnell provides increased uptime, fewer disruptions and a 90% first-time fix rate for resolving system issues. TrueAlert ES notification, the family of addressable notification appliances from Tyco SimplexGrinnell, offers exceptional design and installation flexibility, revolutionary self-testing capability, and lower overall costs of ownership.
Simplex 4007ES Hybrid Panel: Combining conventional and addressable technology, this model is ideal for upgrades and retrofit projects. It enables customers to connect a Simplex 4007ES panel to a conventional, hard-wired fire alarm system. This 4007ES hybrid panel can leverage existing wiring infrastructure and peripheral devices while also providing an easy, cost-effective path to ultimately convert the system to addressable technology.
