Todays and Tomorrows Intelligent Fire
Detection and Building Evacuation System.
Nothing protects facilities and occupants like a
FireFinder XLS syslem. When a re is delecled,
the panel is instantly alerted. In less time than it
takes to draw a single breath, alarms are activated
and emergency control operations are engaged,
including re door closure, elevalor caplure and
air handler shut-off.
Clearly, the FireFinder XLS system is fast. But
thats not all it offers. It can also provide the
pathway to a brighter future.
Out of the box, FireFinder XLS panels feature
an industry-leading 6 LCD screen that provides
rsl responders wilh easy-lo-read lexl, maps and
hazmat icons, and gives your technicians intuitive,
easy-to-follow instructions for running reports.
Thanks to innovative electrical and software
features, the panels can be installed up to 25%
faster.* FireFinder XLS panels are also compatible
with thermal strip printers and pager interfaces.
And the FireFinder XLS family offers you choices.
There are control panels for large applications that
support up to 2,500 addressable points, as well as
panels for small- to mid-sized facilities with 500
addressable points or fewer. And the best part is
that you are never locked into a single solution;
each FireFinder product can be networked into
other members of the FireFinder XLS family,
which means your system can grow along with
your needs.
Perhaps the most important feature of the
FireFinder XLS is the one you cant see yet: its
future expandability. Thanks to the efforts of our
research and development team, the system is
networkable and supports the option of integrated
voice evacuation.
Its true promise lies in the state-of-the-art
hardware and software weve developed, which
provide the platform on which groundbreaking
