C-TEC's two-wire CFP AlarmSense® fire panel is designed to work with Apollo's AlarmSense® range of detectors, call points, sounders and beacons.
Most conventional fire systems are designed to work with two pairs of wires per zone: one pair for detection devices such as smoke detectors, heat detectors and manual call points; the other for alarm devices such as bells, sounders or strobes. By using different voltage bands for quiescent and alarm states, AlarmSense® components can be connected to the same pair of supply wires.
When powered and controlled by the CFP two-wire fire panel, this reliable technology takes all the complexity out of fire alarm system design, leading to quicker, less expensive and more flexible installation. Indeed, research shows an AlarmSense® two-wire system can achieve a 20-25% reduction of labour over a standard four wire conventional system.
AlarmSense®devices are acceptable for BS 5839-1 and BS 5839-6 systems making them particularly useful for fire protection in Houses of Multiple Occupation (HMOs).

Ancillary system expansion connections provided for up to eight two-wire repeaters (one CFP761 network driver card required per system) and optional CFP relay boards
Space for two x 12V 3.3Ah VRLA batteries
Third-party LPCB tested
Power Supply Specification
Mains Supply Voltage: 230V ±10% 50/60Hz
Mains Rated Current: 350mA Maximum
Internal Power Supply: 19V - 28.5V (27V nominal), Ripple 7V maximum (battery fault)
Maximum Battery Size & Type: 2 x 12V 3.2Ah VRLA type, connected in series. Minimum battery size 1.2Ah
Zone Circuit Specification
Number of Circuits: 2
Max Cable Length Per Circuit: 500m
Maximum Number of Sounders Per Zone: The panel’s powersupply is designed to give a max. output current of 1.5A. In addition to powering the sounders,this currentis also used for handling short circuit faults and supplying the panel’s battery charging circuit and any outputrelays which may be fitted. As a safe margin and to allow forthese otherloads,the totalsounderloading forthe panelshould not exceed a maximum of 1.25A. Each zone circuit and each sounder circuit willsupport a max.sounder alarm current of 200mA. Currentsin excess ofthis will cause the circuit’sfuse to trip. The soundersshould be distributed throughoutthe site according to the sound levelsrequired, butthe load should be distributed as equally as possible across each circuit.
Conventional Sounder Circuit Specification (for use with non-AlarmSense Sounders)
Number of Circuits: 4
Alarm Voltage: 27V maximum, 20V minimum (final battery voltage)
Maximum Total Sounder Output Current to all Outputs: 4 x 200mA = 800mA
Maximum Number of Bells @ 25mA 32
Maximum Number of Electronic Sounders @ 20mA 40 (Sounders must be Polarised)
