  • Expand number of voltage outputs
  • Add FAI functionality on a per zone basis
  • Add failsafe, failsecure voltage or relay outputs


  • Simple field selectable jumper configuration sets either 12 or 24V DC output in dual voltage systems
  • FlexConnect system minimizes installation labor by using board buss structure to eliminate or simplify accessory board interwiring

The M8 / M8P are smart power distribution modules that provide eight (8) control INPUTS capable of voltage or dry contact activation and eight (8) controlled and monitored OUTPUTS, with each output network programmable for fail-safe, fail-secure, fire alarm over ride, and AC loss over ride for egress lock control. Each output is also programmable to either of two voltages available when used in a dual voltage FlexPower system.

Each output may also be individually turned ON or turned OFF through a browser interface and the voltage and current of each output may be monitored via network or internet, and trigger points may be set up on each output to generate an alert when that output is outside of selected parameters.
