The IFP-1000ECS is an intelligent analog/addressable fire alarm control panel combined with an Emergency Communication System (ECS). When the ECS features are enabled, they are integrated with the fire alarm and voice evacuation functions of the control panel. The IFP-1000ECS panel and accessories provide features to meet the requirements for Mass Notification Systems as described in UL 2572.

The IFP-1000ECS has six on-board Flexput circuits that can be configured for auxiliary power, notification outputs, or conventional input devices / smoke detectors. (Class A or Class B). The FACP also has a built-in, dual-line digital fire communicator, Form C trouble relay, and two programmable Form C relays. The firmware has powerful features such as detector sensitivity, day/night thresholds, drift compensation, pre-trouble maintenance alert, and calibration trouble alert.

The IFP-1000ECS supports a variety of devices, including RA-1000 or RA-100 remote annunciator, 5824 serial/parallel printer interface module (for printing system reports), RPS- 1000 intelligent power module, and IDP or SD devices.

The IFP-1000ECS system is scalable from 50 to 1000 watts using a distributed amplification scheme to provide the power to the appropriate areas for evacuation coverage.
