upgrade only the panels and network
nodes you want as you follow a migration
path that suits your budget and schedule.
Step 2: Our 4100ES Upgrade Package
can be as easy as plugging a module into
an existing panel or adding a new node to
the network. In many cases, your existing
wiring and devices stay intact.
Step 3: We offer a full range of services to

Why Upgrade?
Your Simplex fire alarm system is known for quality, reliability and flexibility. Our latest
advancements can strengthen your overall life safety program and enhance building
operations. It’s an opportune time to upgrade to the 4100ES platform when:
• Your facilities are expanding beyond your system’s current capabilities
• You want to leverage the latest technology without having to replace
your installed equipment
• You’re looking for optimum system performance
“Learn one, know
The 4100ES platform’s intuitive interface is
loaded with new, information rich features
yet retains the classic look of your current
system. It will feel as comfortable to your
operators as the interface on which they
were trained.
Onboard Mass
Storage Device
Each 4100ES panel can support the
storage of multiple system configurations
in memory, from the time of initial start up
through the present. This Mass Storage
capability helps ensure that a system’s
critical revision history is not lost and
always stays in a customer’s possession.
This can all be done with the ability to
switch back and forth between programs.
While one program is live, you can build
and download another programs to a
stand-alone panel or multiple network
nodes, without impacting network
performance. You can then go live with
the new program, test it and switch back
to the original program before making
corrections. The Mass Storage Device is
fully supervised for removal and failure.
Internet ready
communications standards become more
widely accepted in the fire alarm industry.
The advanced 4100ES capabilities
include the Simplex SafeLinc Internet
interface module that can automatically
e-mail your facilities’ first responders in
the event of a change in system status.
The 4100ES is designed to support future
software uploads/downloads and remote
diagnostics over your facility network.
Enhanced TrueAlert
The 4100ES is designed to leverage
the full, addressable capabilities of our
intelligent, industry leading Simplex
TrueAlert notification technology. The
4100ES features TrueAlert functionality,
which helps minimise installation
and maintenance costs. Emergency
communications can be delivered more
cost-effectively with TrueAlert notification
appliances. Devices can be programmed to
operate for either fire alarm or emergency
communications, regardless of how they
are wired in the loop.
Faster onsite
diagnostics for
higher survivability
Our proven, built-in diagnostics allow you to
access key network and service information
from anywhere - at the panel itself, at an
operator workstation or from a remote laptop.
Issues such as device level ground faults
can be rapidly isolated and resolved to help
optimise system performance and minimise
service costs.
The 4100ES is breaking new ground
in using the internet in fire alarm
environments. It puts Simplex at
the forefront as emerging internet

More device choices
With the 4100ES system, you can upgrade
to intelligent new Simplex IDNet devices
such as carbon monoxide detectors while
preserving your investment in legacy
MAPNET devices. You can build out your
MAPNET cards or expand to addressable
IDNet devices, which feature lower power
consumption, higher point capacity,
multifunction capabilities and enhanced
diagnostics to isolate device level ground
The bottom line: Life
cycle protection
The real value of your Simplex 4100ES
Upgrade Package begins where other
fire alarm equipment leaves off. Simplex
offers more than a solution - we offer a
total life safety management strategy that
can transform your investment into an
asset with ongoing returns rather than an
isolated expense. Our 4100ES Upgrade
Package is just one more example of this
strategy in action - and of Simplex leading
the industry forward.
