The Local and Remote Printers are compact I/O devices
for the intelligent multi protocol fire alarm control
panels. These printers, along with other remote I/O
devices provide a complete range of peripherals to
further enhance the functionality and expandability of
the Morley-IAS ZX series panels.
Combined with the LCD on the fire alarm control panel,
the printers provide enhanced alarm fault recording.
On a change of state, the printer documents all the
information on the LCD (the logical address and
description of the point, the status of the point) with a
date and time stamp.
Two versions of the printers available:
• 40 Character internal printer (ZXe & ZX5e only)
• 40 Character external wall mount printer (ZXa,ZXe,
ZX1e, ZX2e, ZX5e)
The 40 character internal printer can be installed directly
in a ZXe/ZX5e panel to provide hard copy print-out of
the events at the panel. The printer and the interface
card are mounted on the door of the ZXe/ZX5e in
the space provided below the zone indicators.
When a local printer is required with the ZX1,
ZX1e, ZXa or ZX2e control panel the external
printer option must be used.
