The all new Aura product range of fire alarm control equipment combines the very latest hardware and software to produce a control and indication system, which is powerful and sophisticated, yet simple to use and understand. The flexibility of the Aura platform is such that it can be re-configured to realize many other control and indication applications, with direct integration into intelligent buildings.
Moving away from the simple, price driven competitive model used by most manufacturers today, the Aura concept is designed to add value to System Designers, Integrators, Service Providers, and end users. Developed from the “ground up” and using some of the most advanced technology available, Aura is designed as one of the most powerful, intelligent, and technically robust fire alarm products available. Not only do the products and services offered under the Aura brand provide solutions to the most technically challenging applications in life safety, Aura will deliver added value, market advantage, and a competitive edge to your business
OPTIONAL PANEL PERIPHERALS DUAL LOOP PANEL MODULE
The Dual Loop Panel Module monitors loop device status and provides status to the panel processor. It holds device configurations and operates in a standalone manner when catastrophic failures occur.
16 CHANNEL I/O INTERFACE CARD
The 16 Channel I/O Interface enhances the versatility of the alarm system by providing additional input and output capabilities to the Aura Fire Alarm Control Panel. Inputs or outputs can be selected for up to 16 individual channels, and are configured in the same way as devices connected to addressable loops of the panel. The 16 Channel I/O Interface can be configured to contribute or act upon cause and effect logic.
MEDIA GATEWAY™ PANEL MODULE
The Media Gateway Panel Module provides connectivity to monitoring centers using IP (Sur-Gard), or dial-up connectivity. The Media Gateway may also be used to meet integration application requirements.
8 CHANNEL RELAY PANEL MODULE
The 8 Channel Relay Panel Module has 8 voltagefree changeover relay contacts, each of which can be individually programmed. All outputs are configurable in the same way as devices connected to the loops and all may be acted upon by cause and effect logic. These boards are typically used in applications which require more than the five standard relay outputs, such as signalling to other systems or plant control.
The Aura Network Module provides enhanced highspeed communication for networking fire control panels. The network provided by this module can support combinations of Aura Fire Alarm Control Panels and Aura Vision units. Aura Fire Alarm Control Panels can receive events from other panels in the network. The Class X networking used in conjunction with the Network Module provides tolerance against open and short circuit trouble conditions.
The Aura Printer is an optional feature for printing fire system events as they occur. The printer is located on the fascia, below the Zone LEDs (if present). It is a thermal printer and never requires replacement ink. Printing is performed on heat-sensitive paper rolls. A trouble message is reported when the paper runs out. The printer includes a frontloading feature for replacing paper rolls.
ZONE LED MODULE
The Zone LED module contains 48 LEDs and is connected to the LCD Main Processor Board of the Aura Fire Alarm Control Panel. A maximum of three Zone LED modules can be connected to provide the fascia with 144 Zone LED indicators.
4 CHANNEL NAC PANEL MODULE FUTURE ENHANCEMENT
Additional NAC output capability can be added to by using 4 Channel NAC Modules. These boards have 4 supervised NAC outputs, each of which can be individually programmed. The circuits can be configured for class A or B operation. These circuits can be configured to act upon cause and effect logic.
8 CHANNEL CONVENTIONAL ZONE PANEL MODULE FUTURE ENHANCEMENT
The 8 Channel Conventional Zone Panel Module has 8 supervised detection circuits (Class B). Each circuit can support up to 20 conventional detectors and approved devices. Individual circuits may be configured for trigger resistor or short circuit activation. These circuits may be used for any of the standard input actions and can be configured to contribute to cause and effect logic. Each pair of circuits (e.g., 1 and 2, 3 and 4, etc.) can be joined to form a single Class A configuration.
16 CHANNEL I/O INTERFACE PANEL MODULE FUTURE ENHANCEMENT
The 16 Channel I/O Interface Panel Module will provide the same functionality as the 16 Channel I/O Interface Card, with the convenience of a plug-in-module.
