Notifier Network Communication Protocol- FlashScan
Notifier Fire Alarm Detection
When seconds matter..
In a fire emergency situation, seconds can mean the difference between a disaster and a controlled situation. Our newest technology, FlashScan™, addresses this issue, and helps solidify NOTIFIER's position as the world leader in fire alarm detection.
In the late 1980's, NOTIFIER helped pioneer the intelligent market with the AM2020. A host of quality products have followed in its footsteps, including other premier panels such as the AFP-200, and the AFP-400. All of the NOTIFIER Intelligent fire control panels have used a common communication platform, which we now refer to as CLIP (Classic Loop Interface Protocol). This method of communication polls each device individually, checking the status of each detector or module on a loop. Even though this platform has proved effective for years, NOTIFIER has pioneered the market with its patented FlashScan™ protocol.
Using this revolutionary protocol platform, our FlashScan™ family of products can poll devices up to five times faster than before. Likewise, FlashScan™ products' ability to activate outputs is increased in the same way. As a result, the time it takes a FlashScan™ panel to detect an alarm and turn on the notification devices is dramatically decreased.
The FlashScan™ devices and detectors are 100% backward compatible with our first intelligent products. These devices have the ability to communicate in FlashScan™ or CLIP, without the need for DIP switches or jumpers. Even the original AM2020 can be upgraded without the need to replace devices. Conversely, all of our existing CLIP devices are 100% forward compatible with our FlashScan™ panels.
