50-Point Fire Alarm Control Panel

A Cost-effective, Feature-rich Solution for Small Applications

Model FC2005 is an intelligent FACP that provides a cost-effective, feature-rich solution for small fire alarm system applications. Small and compact in design, Model FC2005 is ideal for small fire-protection applications using less than 50 addressable devices. You can connect up to 50 detectors or other devices from our Desigo™ Fire Safety family or other existing Siemens fire protection systems. You will also be able to connect future Siemens devices. This makes FC2005 a safe and long-term investment.

The basic FC2005 is specifically suitable for applications such as:

  • Retail shops
  • Doctor’s offices
  • Dry cleaners
  • Small restaurants
  • Strip malls
  • Banks
  • Small commercial buildings
  • Parking garages

With its built-in *DACT (Digital Alarm Communicator Transmitter) and two (2) *NACs (Notification Appliance Circuit), Model FC2005 is powerful enough to economically meet  the needs of these applications.  Each 50-point FACP is FM (#3010); CSFM (#7165-0067:0259) and FDNY (#6104) Approved.

Common features:
  • Max. number of FDnet addresses: 50
  • Number of integrated FDnet circuits: either one class A or two class B
  • Number of NAC circuits: either one class A or two class B

Specifications: The Model FC2005 FACP consists of a main board ; a 170-Watt power supply, and a system enclosure. The programming software is held in flash electrically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM).

Main Board: The main board provides system display and control, as well as connections for system field wiring, via removable terminal blocks. The 3.5-inch (8.9 centimeters) by 1.5” (3.8 centimeters) liquid-crystal display (LCD) screen shows all system messages and event status.  Each screen supports 182 characters:  seven (7) lines with 26 characters per line.  Each event may have a custom message up to 40 characters that describes the event’s location. The backlit LCD screen illuminates on any system event or manual key press.  New, ‘unacknowledged’ events are indicated by a flashing exclamation point. Once `acknowledged,’ the exclamation point changes to a check mark. A system-status line shows the quantity of events presently active. A built-in RS─485 communication bus is on the main board. The main boards readily support system status light-emitting diodes (LEDs) for Power, Alarm, Trouble, Supervisory and Ground-Fault commands.

* DACT—dials a phone number;  NAC—this is the circuit that horns, strobes and combinations are on
