Fire alarm control panel (FACP)

Block diagram


Our integrated circuits and reference designs help you create fire alarm control panels (FACPs) with innovative features such as addressability, advanced human machine interface (HMI), hot swappable expansion modules and modular architectures.

Design requirements

    FACP designs often require:

  • Power factor correction, higher power/thermal efficiency and compliance with EMC/EMI standards.
  • Lead-acid battery charging with seamless power switchover.
  • Multiple communication protocols on wired (Ethernet, RS-485, RS-232, USB) and wireless interfaces.
  • Delivery of power and command over a single-line to loop-powered devices.
  • Mechanical-relay reliability.
