        - FAI

        - NC/NO input

        - WET/DRY output

        - V SELECT

      - FAIL SAFE/SECURE output


  • Expand number of voltage outputs in increments of eight
  • Add FAI functionality on a per zone basis
  • Add simultaneous failsafe – failsecure voltage outputs
  • Pre-punched cabinet layout allows expansion board additions with minimal labor

C4 and C8 power controller modules provide 4 or 8 relay controlled, protected outputs and 4 or 8 access control inputs. When used in a single voltage system, each individual output may be programmed for a continuous output or to respond to the input from the access control system. A fire alarm interface to over ride the access control system for control of egress locks is provided for each output. When used in a dual voltage system, each individual output zone may be programmed to operate with either of the two system voltages.
