C-Tec XFP 1 Loop/16 Zone Addressable Fire Alarm Panel – XFP501E/X


3 in stock


C-TEC’s XFP single loop 16 zone addressable fire alarm panel offers high performance at a very competitive price.

LPCB certified to EN54 parts 2 & 4, it is supplied in an attractive flush or surface mountable plastic enclosure, offers combined keypad or keyswitch entry to Access Levels 2 and 3 and is compatible with Apollo’s XP95/Discovery protocol.

Ideal for use in small stand-alone applications or in larger applications due to its ability to sit on network of up to 8 XFP master panels, it is one of Europe’s best-selling entry-level addressable fire panels.

Packed full of engineering features – some of which are not available on more expensive alternatives (see feature list below) – the XFP501E/X is also fully compatible with C-TEC’s Hush Button fire alarm solution and its new range of EN54 certified addressable sounders and VADs.
