PENN Peripheral Expanson Network Node For Advanced MxPro 5


SKU: 91e1b97a3038 Category: Brand:


The Peripheral Expansion Network Node (PENN) provides the functionality of the MxPro 5 Series Fire Alarm Control Panels for use in bespoke graphical mimic, connecting remote inputs and outputs directly to the network, and other special build applications.

The PENN allows a comprehensive range of peripherals to be connected to the network without having to install additional panels.

Compatible expansion cards include Input (MXP-537), Relay (MXP-035), Mimic driver (MXP-539), 16-way Switch (MXP-538), Fan/Damper Control (MXP-543), Zone Monitor (MXP-536), Sounder (MXP-034) and ESPA Pager Interface (MXP-547). Accessories such as a Display Card (MXS-504), Printer (MXP-512), and LED Indicators (MXP-513-xxx) can also be added.

The PENN is pre-built to include either a Standard network or a Fault Tolerant (FT) network interface.

The unit is designed for easy wiring installation. “Plug-in” terminal blocks are provided for all connections to the unit. RS232, as well as USB (Type B), are built-in.

The PENN is designed to be installed directly to mounting chassis plates, such as MXM-515-6U, MXM-515-8U, etc. using six fixing screw positions. The chassis assembly can be mounted into MX-5000 and MX-5000R enclosures.
