The fire alarm computer for
medium-sized to large premises:
flexible,multifunctional and
future-proof
The modular IQ8Control M fire alarm
panel uses proven technology and ful-
fils the highest security requirements
for the comprehensive protection of
premises. Thus, it is just as suitable
for use in medium-sized premises with
complex security requirements as it
is for premises, which are spread over
a wide area and are networked.
The IQ8Control M is ideally suited to
medium-sized premises with complex
security requirements and for premi-
ses that cover a wide area and/or are
networked. The IQ8Control M is com-
pletely compatible with the fire alarm
system 8000 control panels. The
modular design allows flexible and
user-friendly integration of several indi-
vidual modules, which together form
one unit. The system extension with
one or more additional modules can
be adapted to advanced requirements
very easily. This not only simplifies individual planning today, but also, as a
result of the FAP's extendibility options, ensures future-proof solutions.
If necessary, the control panel software can simply be replaced by an
upgrade version via a PC.
Professional loop technology:multi-functional,extendible and
economic
The esserbus®is a short and open circuit resilient loop, offering highest
operational reliability as well as cost saving installation options on
account of reduced wiring through combined loop and spur topologies.
All single-criterion and multi-criteria detectors can be connected via the
esserbus®- this includes everything from Series 9000 standard fire
detectors to Series 9200 and IQ8Quad intelligent fire detectors.
•Latest processor technology
•Permissible wire length for esserbus®up to 3,500 m
•Graphically supported powerful programming tool
•Innovative alarm signalling through the new alarm
generation IQ8Quad
•Supports IQ8Wireless RF technology
•Modular device structure
•Networking of up to 31 panels via essernet®(500k Baud)
•Up to 7 esserbus®loops
•EN-54 approval for up to 512 alarms
•Micro-modules compatible with System 8000 as well
as IQ8Control

and maintenance signals. In addition, the location of each detector within
the bus system can be allocated with an appropriate text display.
Logged security
Each event is logged to the second by the IQ8Control M fire alarm compu-
ter. A maximum of 10,000 events can be verified at any time and can be read
out via an optional printer connection within the control panel or via the tools
8000 programming software.
essernet
Within the essernet®system up to 31 devices such as control panels, indi-
cating and operating panels, gateways as well as electronic emergency
plans can be networked irrespective of hierarchical levels. Events and reports
are available for all devices when connected to the essernet®.
Easy installation and operation
The tools 8000 service and programming software package guarantees
fast commissioning. The settings are programmed directly at the control
panel via a PC / notebook. Only essential information is displayed, which
considerably facilitates system operations. When connected to the essernet®,
decentralised operation is also possible. Optionally, alarm and status infor-
mation can be displayed via
single zone indicators at the
control panel, via decentra-
lised graphic layout panels
or plain text displays. It can
also be printed out using
remote printers or the prin-
ter integrated in the control
panel.
Flexibility and reliability within the
loop structure
The esserbus®allows a combined
loop and spur structure with a maxi-
mum length of 3.5 km. Up to 127 bus
devices can be divided in up to 127
detector zones, which guarantees
a high degree of planning and appli-
cation flexibility. Each IQ8Quad
detector is supplied with isolators,
while other bus devices can be pro-
vided with them optionally.
Thus, each bus device remains ope-
rational in the case of a wire break or
short-circuits. Only the corresponding
part of the loop located between the
affected bus devices is automatically
isolated.
IQ8Control M allows implementation
of a maximum of 7 esserbus®loops
or 4 powered loops. The esserbus®
transponders are bus devices with
freely programmable inputs and out-
puts for controlling and monitoring
external devices or for connecting
special detectors.
Sensors integrated in single detectors
within the esserbus® system are sub-
ject to manual or time-related activa-
tion /deactivation. The esserbus® is

The key features of the IQ8Quad detector with integrated alarm
signalling:
•an external power supply unit for the signalling devices is not required
•flasher, sounder and speech alarm device can be individually controlled
•each device - even with the whole functional range - only has one of the
127 addresses on the esserbus®allocated to it
•alarm signalling devices are automatically synchronised
A variety of operating panel fronts:
optimum solution for providers and fire services
The wide range of operating panel fronts means that the right solution is
always available whatever the requirements of the providers and fire ser-
vices, thus perfectly brid-
ging the gap between man
and technology. The ope-
rating panel fronts of the
fire alarm panel are avai-
lable in various languages.
The text is displayed in the
respective language on
the standard display and
on the 1/4-VGA graphics
display.
Innovative alarm signalling and
evacuation
The bus supplied alarm signalling
devices together with the IQ8Control
fire alarm computer ensure innovative
integration of optical and acoustic sig-
nalling devices, which are installed via
the powered loop network. Thus, the
IQ8Control M fire alarm computer and
the IQ8Quad fire detectors provide an
economic solution by means of mini-
mised installation expenses.
All addressable alarm signalling
devicescomply with EN 54-3. They
support alarm tones in compliance
with DIN 33404-3 and another 18 inter-
national alarm tones with a standard
sound pressure of up to 96 dB (A).
Trouble-free radio technology
integration
When connecting radio communica-
tion devices to the IQ8Control M fire
alarm computer, all devices remain
individually addressable as usual and
the whole functional range is maintai-
ned while each radio communication
device is allocated only one address.
For planning purposes and commis-
sioning, the tools 8000 programming
software package is implemented.
This software can also be used to mea-
sure the respective field strength.
Automatically generated frequency
modifications secure trouble-free ope-
ration and communication between
the radio communication devices. In
terms of system expansion, the radio
communication devices serve as an
ideal solution for maintaining unres-
tricted functionality of all previous
installations whilst extending the
functional range.
