Fire Alarm Control Panel
With Built-In DACT
Section: Conventional Fire Alarm Control Panels
The NOTIFIER SFP-1024 is a 24-volt, ten-zone fire alarm control panel with a built-in communicator and remote-site upload/
download capability. The integral communicator transmits event
information (alarms, troubles, supervisories, faults, etc.) to a
UL Listed central station. Selectable transmission formats allow the SFP-1024 to communicate to virtually all central stations.
