Description Extended Information
VM Series represents the latest generation of life safety control panels for mid to large sized applications. With large multi-message displays, intuitive interfaces, and stylish contoured cabinets - these systems capture the imagination, and catch the eye. But behind the LCD display is where they really shine. New TCP/IP-enabled microprocessors and chipsets take full advantage of the latest advances in computing technology, leading to smarter, faster, higher-capacity processing and more efficient designs. VM Series’s patented Voltage Boost™ technology, for example, delivers constant voltage on NAC and AUX circuits – even at low battery power – resulting in lighter cable requirements and longer runs. That saves time and money.
  • VM Series delivers high performance features exactly where you need them because flexibility is where VM’s leading edge computing power is put to best use. In fact, VM Series can handle jobs that range from a single stand-alone control panel, to a sophisticated network comprising as many as twenty four control panels processing data from up to 24,000 device addresses. VM supports carbon monoxide detection integrated right into the same device that detects smoke, helping reduce installation costs while providing detection of potentially deadly carbon monoxide gas.
  • Networking at the speed of light - Networking is among VM Series’ strong suits. A simple VM network can comprise up to 24 panels - enough to serve the needs of most campuses and larger buildings. Highly efficient RS485 connectivity, plus fiber-optic communications deliver faster response times and more sophisticated diagnostic capabilities, while cost-effective remote annunciation solutions keep basic monitoring and control always within reach.
  • Versatility built right in - The VM control panel has room for three fully-programmable front panel switch/LED strips. Each strip includes 12 switches with two associated LEDs (one quad-color, and one yellow), and a custom label area. LED color designations are assigned by the installer.
  • Perfect for retrofits - VM Series is particularly well-suited to retrofit applications. All connections are made over standard wiring - no shielded cable required. This means that in most situations existing wiring can be used to upgrade a legacy control panel to VM Series technology without the expense or disruption of rewiring the entire building.
  • Power that goes the distance - Patented Voltage Boost™ technology delivers a constant 22.5 V on NAC and AUX circuits - even at low battery power. This means lighter gauge cable can be used for equivalent distances compared with conventional power supplies, or longer wire runs on the same gauge cable. Either way, this breakthrough technology saves time and equipment costs, making VM not only a high-performance solution - but a cost-effective one as well.
  • Tuned up and in synch - VM’s four on-board Notification Appliance Circuits are fully synchronized to UL 1971 standards - without the need for external modules or other electronics. It’s ample 10-amp power supply is finely tuned to get the most out of the widely-acclaimed low profile Genesis notification appliances.
  • The smart choice - Electronic addressing eliminates the tedium of setting dipswitches, and automatic device mapping ensures that each device resides on the system at its correct location. Meanwhile, innovative programming features allow the system designer to customize powerful built-in features to precisely suit the needs of the building owner.
  • VM Series’ modular design makes system configuration quite literally a snap. With a range of option cards that extend networking, audio, and communications capabilities VM control panels can easily keep pace with even the most demanding jobs. Ethernet programming, Central Station Communication, Email, and diagnostics makes these panels accessible any time, from anywhere - so service personnel can spend more time doing, and less time looking...and that makes for fewer disruptions and happier building owners.
  • Face time - VM features large tactile control buttons, quad-color LED indicators, and a 24-line by 40-character backlit LCD capable of displaying eight simultaneous events.
