The Hochiki DCP-FRCME-P Fast Response Contact Monitoring Modules are designed to be used with pull stations, water flow switches, and other applications requiring the monitoring of dry contact devices. The interrupt driven Digital Communications Protocol (DCP) combines maximum communication reliability and fast response to emergency conditions. The DCP-FRCME- P contact monitoring module does not require a separate 24 VDC power source.

Each addressable contact monitoring module is programmed with its own unique Signaling Line Circuit (SLC) loop address. The device address is electrically programmable and stored in onboard EEPROM. Up to 127 devices can be placed on the Hochiki DCP SLC loop. The module supervises the wiring to the contact with an End of Line (EOL) resistor. It can be programmed to monitor Normally Open (NO) or Normally Closed (NC) contacts. If a fault condition occurs in the wiring, the module sends a trouble status signal to the fire alarm control panel. When a change of status (contact changes state) is sensed by the DCP- FRCME-P, it sends an interrupt to the control panel indicating that an alarm has occurred.

The DCP-FRCME-P is small design and is suitable for mounting in a single gang box.
