The JFS-IP4000 is an expandable analog/addressable releasing fire alarm system with a total system capacity of 4,064 addresses. Additional capacity on the system is achieved using multi-point SLC modules. The control panel utilizes the exclusive Potter protocol that includes a complete line of sensors and modules. The system is expandable with a total of thirty-one additional addressable Signaling Line Circuits (SLC) each with a maximum of 127 devices. Each SLC may be comprised of any combination of smoke sensor, heat detectors or modules and allows for a total of 50 ohms of impedance and may use any wire compliant with the National Electrical Code (NEC).

The JFS-IP4000 has a 10 Amp power supply with six Notification Appliance Circuits (NACs) and four Input/Output (I/O) circuits. The NACs are rated at 3 Amps each and the I/Os are rated at 1 Amp each. Each output is regulated and power limited. In addition, each output is uniquely programmable and may be configured for steady signal, strobe synchronization, constant power, door holder power, or releasing. The strobe synchronization includes Potter/AMSECO, Gentex, System Sensor and Cooper/Wheelock and with the exclusive Quadrasync each output may have a unique brand and all strobes will flash together. The I/Os are designed for inputs such as manual release stations and abort switches that will not require polling and react nearly instantaneously.

The JFS-IP4000 is listed for releasing of fire suppression systems. The software allows cross zones, counting zones, and timers for suppression. The system is capable of multiple release outputs across multiple hazards. In addition, the JFS-PS1000 may be used to extend releasing capability. The NACs may be expanded using the JFS-PS1000 series intelligent power supplies. Each JFS-PS1000 adds another 10 Amps of power, 2 additional input circuits and the JFS-IP4000 will support up to 31 power supplies. The system will synchronize the strobes system wide. In addition, the JFS-PS1000E has space to allow the installation of up to six PAD100-SLCE SLC loop expansion cards. The cards mount on a stacker bracket that allows access to all SLC circuit connections.
