Description AUTOCALL TFX panels provide flexible operator displays including a backlit LCD and field configurable LED annunciators. The LED annunciators provide quick identification of fire, trouble, and supervisory events by zone, group, or device, while the LCD provides user defined text to describe the event type and its precise location. When used with Grinnells 550 series analog smoke sensors, the AUTOCALL TFX panels provide continuous detector sensitivity monitoring and automatically compensate for environmental influences. Alarm and pre-alarm threshold smoke levels can be defined per device and can be automatically or manually switched between multiple sensitivities based on the time-of-day, dayof-week, or date. Our exclusive CONSYS software configuration tool for site specific user programming easily guides the trained installer through a menu prompted decision process. Up to 1600 discrete contact inputs and voltage outputs in any combination, can be configured into the TFX system. These are typically used for audio evacuation and HVAC control switches, and annunciation LEDs at the main (or remote) control panel. New and existing circuits of conventional 2wire or 4-wire smoke detectors can be completely supervised by the AUTOCALL TFX-400. The conventional circuits are interfaced by using Addressable Detector Monitor Modules (IXA-500DMA ) which can be placed anywhere on an analog, addressable communications loop. The AUTOCALL TFX offers a UL Listed alarm verification feature for use with connected circuits of conventional smoke detection (IXA-500DMA) or any 550 series analog, addressable smoke or heat detector. The AUTOCALL TFX system logs all alarm, trouble and supervisory events into electronic memory with the time and date of occurrence. These events can be displayed on the LCD, or printed. Coincidence alarm grouping (cross-zoning) relates multiple device actuations before confirmation of an alarm occurs. The user can select the number of successive device actuations (2, 3, or 4) required to trigger an output response. The user can define different coded patterns to audible and visual signal circuits. These patterns are typically used to differentiate between alert and evacuate conditions. They can also be used as auxiliary signals, such as tornado warnings. Up to seven (7) remote operator control panels can be connected to a TFX-400 panel. These remote panels can be configured to duplicate the LED and LCD displays, and control switch functions.

TFX-400 Fire Alarm Control Panel

General Information The AUTOCALL TFX-400 is a self-contained, small addressable panel in a single cabinet. The AUTOCALL TFX-400 includes two (2) analog, addressable signaling line circuits that provide 99 points each. The AUTOCALL TFX-400 uses proven technology, used in the TFX-500M and TFX-800M fire alarm and detection systems. The AUTOCALL TFX-400 control is designed to be used with conventional or analog, addressable fire detection devices, in any combination. As a stand alone panel, the AUTOCALL TFX-400 meets the needs of any small-to-mid size building or building complex; networking capability allows the TFX-400 to be used in larger buildings or building complexes.

Full remote operation of any AUTOCALL TFX control panel connected to the optional AUTOCALL TFXnet network is available from the TFX-400. A Virtual Front Panel (VFP) allows the operator to use the LCD and keypad of the TFX-400 as if they were standing at any other AUTOCALL TFX control unit. Once the other control unit is selected, the TFX-400 LCD shows the status of the other control unit and its attached circuits and devices. Operations (such as isolating devices) become much easier with the optional networking capability of the graphical user interface for fire alarm annunciation and control.
