Silent Knight IFP-2000

Intelligent Analog/Addressable Fire Alarm Control Panel

  • Factory New
Brand: Silent Knight Part #: 16816 Categories: , Manufacturer Part #: IFP-2000


The IFP-2000 is an intelligent analog/addressable fire alarm control panel (FACP). The basic IPF-2000 panel contains one built in signaling line circuit (SLC), which can support 159 IDP sensors and 159 IDP modules or 127 SD devices per loop. Additional SLC loops can be added using the model 5815XL SLC expander to increase the overall point capacity to a maximum of 636 points per panel.

IFP-2000 has the interconnection capability for up to 16 panels. The system has two modes of operation, Multiple panels covering one larger building, or multiple independent buildings.

RPS-2000 is used in a networked system, where at least one IFP-2000 is in the system. It is the same as IFP-2000 without the display.

IFP-2000 has eight on-board Flexput circuits that be be configured for auxiliary power, notification outputs, or for conventional smoke detector inputs (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. IFP-2000 has powerful features such as detector sensitivity, day/night thresholds, drift compensation, pre-trouble maintenance alert, and calibration trouble alert.

IFP-2000 supports a variety of devices, including RA-2000 remote annunciator, 5824 serial/parallel printer interface module (for event logging system reports), RPS-1000 intelligent power module, and IDP or SD protocol SLC devices.
