SKU: ViLX-EX8 Category: Brand:


The Lexicomm ViLX-EX8 is a self contained enclosure housing a display, four dual line cards, power supply & battery charger and is surface mounted, the compact enclosure makes it ideal for locating in electrical risers.

The case is made from powder coated zintec, with fourteen 20mm cable knock-outs provided for all necessary cables as well as space for the single 12V VRSLA backup battery required.

Site Expansion

The Lexicomm ViLX-EX8 system expander panel works in conjunction with the TMS master station to provide additional lines. Each system expander panel can accept up to eight lines of outstation. Typically it is mounted in electrical risers adjacent to stair cores where its compact size assists with riser layouts.

Outstation range

The full range of Lexicomm outstations are compatible and include Type A outstations, Type B Outstations, Type C outstations and jack points for use in far and middle east applications.

Lines auto identify by flashing Red for EVCS calls, Blue for assist calls or flashing Green for Connected calls as detailed in BS 5839-9:2021.


The ViLX-EX8 has integral networking so does not require an additional network card. Lexicomm network is a powerful system with capacity of 64 panels, giving a large system maximum of 512 outstations. This would be a mixture of touch screen master stations and system expander panels.

The display on the front of the ViLX-EX8 gives the current call or fault status of each line of the local panel aiding fault finding.


The system expander panel can be configured via the touch screen master engineering menus. Alternatively the configuration spreadsheet can be accessed and loaded via the mmc card on the touch screen master. Site wide configuration via a single master station is standard.

Each outstation has three labels, one for Emergency Assist, one for EVCS and one for Fault text, each label is two lines of twenty characters.

Each Master station can be programmed to answer specific outstations on the ViLX-EX8, and these can differ from day to night.
