IP technology provides faster data rates and a wide range of wiring media choices for easier installation, operation and maintenance
The Johnson Controls new Simplex life safety network greatly increases the speed and ease at which fire detection and life safety systems communicate and operate. The Simplex ES Net Life Safety Network harnesses the power of IP technology with data rates up to 100MB per second and a range of network connection choices including Ethernet, DSL and fiber. It gives building owners reassurance knowing as the IP standard evolves, so will ES Net, making the life safety system resilient and future proof.
Simplex ES Net provides greater flexibility during network expansion. By allowing up to 82,000 feet (25 Km) between nodes, ES Net gives users more options to meet performance and budget requirements. The network’s increased memory capacity and broad bandwidth helps maximize uptime, deliver consistent performance and support future expansion and enhancements.
This new technology gives Johnson Controls the ability to support the industry’s largest networks – up to 687 nodes – while also supporting multiple network topologies (ring, star, bus and mesh). This provides end-users with a great deal of flexibility for design, installation, performance and fault tolerance.
“Johnson Controls has brought leading-edge innovation to fire detection and life safety systems,” said Anil Konjalwar, senior product manager, Fire Detection, Johnson Controls. “The new Simplex ES Net offers a powerful solution for customers seeking a fast, reliable and efficient life safety network.”
With the system’s TrueSite Workstation Mobile Client, network monitoring and management can easily be completed on a mobile device or singe console. Advanced diagnostic tools ensure fast installations, easy commissioning and quick, efficient pinpointing of network performance and connection issues.
