Global Fire Equipment launches the G-One, a versatile addressable single loop fire control panel with advanced connectivity

Innovative manufacturer of fire detection equipment, Global Fire Equipment (GFE), has added to its product portfolio with the launch of G-One, a versatile addressable single loop fire control panel with advanced connectivity.

The G-One has been designed with affordability and flexibility in mind. Thanks to its sophisticated design, easy installation and intuitive commissioning, it is an ideal solution for a wide range of single loop applications, from offices and restaurants, to shops, schools and more.  The control panel can be either surface or recessed mounted.

CPR Certified to EN54-2 and EN54-4, the G-One offers advanced Chameleon peer-to-peer multi-master network communications and is capable of being networked with up to 32 fire control panels from the GFE range. The control panel has a high-integrity digital protocol for resilient high- speed monitoring and data communication with up to 250 devices on a single loop. Powerful cause and effect programming capabilities, along with enhanced system diagnostics performance, are also offered by the panel.

One of the unique benefits offered by the G-One panel is its installer-friendly dynamic, automatic self-learn facility, which continuously auto-learns, without human intervention, bypassing the traditional manually initiated auto-learn process.  The G-One also features a unique high resolution back-lit blue graphical LCD display, which ensures a clear and effective user interface.

The G-One is fully compatible with all GFE-manufactured digital analogue-addressable loop devices and its menu structure is identical to existing GFE panels, ensuring familiarity and ease of operation for users.

Paul Pope, Group Business Development Director Worldwide, at GFE, comments: “We are delighted to bring to market this highly versatile fire control panel. The G-One incorporates sophisticated peer-to-peer multi-master network communications and powerful cause and effect programming capability, the panel is easy to install, programme and operate, making it the ideal choice for a wide range of single loop applications. We are confident that G-One will be well-received by our international customer base.”

 

 

GFE Unveils a new module: the ZONE-MIMIC

We are delighted to introduce a new module, the ZONE-MIMIC. Assembled in a Dual Gang (DG) Box, the ZONE-MIMIC is designed to be used with our Chameleon addressable control panels.

 

The GFE team has developed a module for ‘Mimic Boards LEDs’, to signal fire conditions or system status for each individual zone (Plexi board as shown not included, illustrative only). It also features a ‘lamp test’ input, a buzzer driver output, and a ‘local’ buzzer silence input. These are just some of the many features that the ZONE-MIMIC module offers.

 

This module operates in two different modes:

 

  • Panel Status:
    • Each LED driver is assigned to a specific control panel status indication: Fire, Fault, Pre-Alarm, Test, Disabled, System ON, Buzzer or Sounders ON.
  • Zone Status:
    • Each LED driver is assigned to a zone in Fire, this can range from 1 to 384 (addressed by 8 Zone Blocks).
