Gent Advanced Vigilon Loop Card

Description

The new Loop Card is designed to fully comply with EN54-23 and is available on EN54 versions
of the Vigilon and Vigilon Compact systems. The increased power allows for up to 100 EN54-23
sensor-sounder-strobes on a 2km loop, managing up to 200 devices in total.

Key Features

• Increased capacity for loop powered devices including the new EN54-23 visual alarm devices
• Supports longer loop lengths up to 2km*
• Loop current increased to 800mA when used with the latest S-Quad and S-Cubed devices
• PC based diagnostic tool to ensure optimum system integrity

Benefits

• Improved efficiency with 2 times more alarm power with no loss of standby
• Supports up to 100 S-Quad Sensor- Sounder-VADs certified to EN54-23
• Supports the upgrade of existing Vigilon installations

Features and benefits

Loop alarm current
The new loop card is designed to support a higher loop load in alarm delivering a higher capacity for
EN54-23 compliant visual alarms devices. The maximum alarm load of 800mA is available ONLY with the
new range of alarm devices. With any of the old range of alarm devices (S-Quad, S-Cubed) the maximum
alarm load is limited to 400mA per loop.

Loop length
The loop card is capable of supporting loops in excess of 1km with a maximum length of 2km with
1.5mm2 cable. This is subject to loop population and distribution of sounders and visual alarm devices.

Alarm device distribution
A key factor affecting the loop length and alarm current capability of the loop card is the distribution
of alarm devices on the loop. In some circumstances the new loop card may support fewer devices or
loop lengths less than 2km. Reference should be made to the loop load calculations in the installation
instructions and by use of the Battery Standby and Loop Load Calculator Tool.

Validating loop length
The loop card will automatically measure (and display on the panel) the loop resistance of each loop on
allocation. This will allow engineers to easily fulfilL one of the required tasks for commissioning the system.
If the resistance exceeds a safe limit it will indicate a fault.
