The original Scope F-Link system has become a popular, secure and reliable method of remotely alerting and monitoring fire alarm or security panels. The latest version (F-Link 4) adds even greater performance benefits and improved functionality. The F-Link transceivers are now housed in a larger case allowing for plenty of cable entry points and an informative text display which provides status information and details of alarm messages.
A Scope F-Link system consists of two or more F-Link 4 transceivers (supplied in this kit) working together to form a secure mesh network with each unit operating as both a transmitter and receiver. The radio connection between the units is monitored for faults in accordance with the relevant sections of BS5839-1:2017 (24.2b) and BS EN54-25:2008 (4.2.6).
There is an additional output available on the master unit for connection to an optional paging transmitter, which sends alarm and fault messages to pocket pagers.
The following products are included in the FLINK4KIT:
- 2 x FLINK4 fully monitored telemetry transceivers 12/24v DC with aerials
The front panel display indicates active zones, unit status, network/radio status and
the received signal strength of incoming transmissions. A button is provided to
mute the internal fault sounder, and a keyswitch allows the unit to be reset or
placed into test mode.
The Identity and radio operating frequency of each unit is set using dip switches,
allowing for rapid and fuss-free installation.
Where required, additional features can be programmed using Windows-based
configuration software (available from Scope). Software-configurable options
include: text descriptors for each Node and each zone event; zone input type; and
output relay operating mode. Programmed settings are wirelessly distributed by the
Master unit to all installed Nodes.
An optional F-Link paging transmitter can be added to the system to send alarm and
fault event descriptions to portable radio pagers. An optional interface can also be
specified to provide a serial data output for logging purposes.
