PFC-4410RC Conventional Releasing Control PanelPotter
The Potter Model PFC-4410RC is a flexible multi-hazard releasing control panel that is well suited for a number of applications. The PFC-4410RC is listed for use with pre-action and deluge sprinkler suppression systems and agent based fire suppression systems. The panel utilizes a microprocessor-based system that has 24 Standard Programs, which covers a majority of installations. The simple to follow Menu Structure programs the entire system in a matter of minutes. In addition to the Standard Programs, the panel allows custom programming to accommodate any installation.
The control panel for the extinguishing agent releasing system shall be a microprocessor based control capable of protecting multiple hazards in one control panel. It shall be Underwriters Laboratories Inc. listed under Standard 864 Ninth Edition and Underwriters Laboratories of Canada for Local Control Units for Releasing Service. The control shall also be approved by Factory Mutual Research Corporation and be compliant with the requirements of NFPA-72 (Local: A, M, SS service types; DAC and NC signaling type) and NFPA12, NFPA12A, NFPA-13, NFPA-15, NFPA-16, NFPA-17, NFPA-17A, NFPA-750, and NFPA-2001.The control shall be housed in an 18 gauge steel cabinet that has a hinged, removable door with a key lock. The finish shall be baked enamel and available in red or off-white with contrasting trim and logo. An optional matching bezel should be available for semi-flush mounting. The cabinet shall have adequate space to house 18 AH standby batteries capable of operating the system for at least 90 hours.The control shall include a fully supervised integral power supply/battery charger capable of providing 200mA to the auxiliary power circuit. It shall also be capable of providing 2.5 Amps to all releasing and notification appliance circuits combined. All initiating, output and auxiliary power circuits shall be power limited.The control shall have a 32 character (16 characters, 2 lines) backlit LCD display and a 34 LED supplemental display. All diagnostic and alarm event information shall be viewable in text form on this display. A field programmable custom banner message with the current date and time shall be displayed when no current alarm or diagnostic information exists.All operational features of the control panel shall be field programmable using menu driven selections on the alpha-numeric display and on board controls. No special programmer will be required and jumpers or switches to configure operational features shall not be permitted. Alarm and trouble indications shall resound when required.The control panel shall be equipped with 24 programs built into the panel memory, 15 for water based extinguishing and 9 for agent extinguishing. In addition, the panel shall have the ability to add custom programs. All programming functions shall be password protected.The control shall have four fully supervised Class B (Style B) initiating circuits capable of supporting the operation of 25 compatible 2-wire smoke detectors on each circuit. The individual circuits shall be selectable through the programming sequence to operate in one of the following modes: Conventional, Waterflow, Linear Heat Detection (up to 700 ohms per zone), Manual Release, Low Air Alarm, Supervisory, Tamper, Low Air or High Air. Optional Class A modules, CA2Z, may be added for Class A operation. The panel shall have a Low Air Zone that creates a supervisory condition and can be mapped to a release output. The control shall have two fully supervised Class B (Style B) supervisory circuits. These circuits shall be selectable through the programming sequence to operate in one of the following modes: Supervisory, Tamper, Low Air or High Air. The control shall have one fully supervised class B (style B) Abort circuit with 4 different operating modes, ULI, IRI, and NYC, and 30 second.The control shall have four fully supervised Class B (Style Y) output circuits. These circuits shall be selectable through the programming sequence to operate as one of the following: Alarm Notification Appliance, Supervisory Notification Appliance, Trouble NotificationAppliance or Releasing. The optional CAM module may be added to convert the outputs to Class A.The panel shall have an RS-485 output and auxiliary power outputs for connection and supervision of up to 4 remote annunciators or an ARM-44 Relay Module and 3 annunciators.The releasing circuits shall be supervised for short circuit conditions and shall be programmable for cross zoning operation when required. The discharge timer for these releasing circuits shall be programmable for times of 7, 8, 9, 10, 20 minutes or continuous. All initiating andoutput circuits shall be capable of being individually disabled or enabled. In addition, when in the agent extinguishing mode there shall be a pre-discharge timer adjustable from 0-60 seconds from an alarm zone or 0-30 seconds from a manual release zone.The control shall have a test mode that will automatically disable all releasing circuits. The test mode shall operate in such a manner as to automatically reset the initiating circuit and indicating circuits after detecting each alarm condition initiated by the test. All testing shall be recorded in the 40 event history buffer. The test mode will automatically terminate after twenty minutes of inactivity.The control shall have four integral relay contacts rated 3 Amps at 30 VDC for connection to external auxiliary equipment. One relay shall operate when an alarm condition occurs, another when a trouble signal occurs, the third when a supervisory condition occurs, and the fourth during a waterflow condition.UL and ULC Listed, FM Approved, NYMEA Accepted, CSFM Approved, CE Marked and RoHS Compliant
