Product Overview

Quality, reliability, ease of use and feature rich are attributes that are consistent across the entire range of Haes fire alarm control panels. The Esento Marine 8-12 zone encompasses all of these attributes to provide the fire alarm engineer’s panel of choice.

For the fire alarm engineer, the Esento Marine 8-12 has been designed to minimise labour costs by providing ample room for tasks such as wiring and changing batteries. Activation is via key switch or access code, which means you should always be able to work on the panel and the one man walk tests will help reduce the cost of maintaining the fire alarm system.

Simplicity is one of the most important aspects when considering the end user of a fire alarm panel. The colour coded buttons and the 3 step silence functionality gives non-technical people the confidence to correctly manage their fire alarm system.

The Esento Marine 8-12 provides a number of important and useful features including 3 different modes to help reduce false alarms, muster alarm and programmable output delays. All inputs and outputs are fully programmable.

As standard, the panels provide four monitored sounder circuits, Fire & Fault VFCO relays, Fire & Fault switched negative outputs, class change and an alert input. The battery compartment also includes a secure battery clamp.

Esento Marine panels are approved by the BRE which is a Notified Body authorised by the MCA to Modules B & D, Lloyds Register and the American Bureau of Shipping
