XPander is Apollo’s wireless intelligent detector range.
Detectors are often installed in buildings where wiring presents a challenge. This could be because the fabric of the building or its design will be negatively affected by the use of cables. It is sometimes very difficult to introduce cable runs into buildings which were not designed for the modern age. It is for these architecturally sensitive buildings that XPander has been developed.
XPander is a system in which individual detectors, call points and alarm devices communicate with the Apollo Addressable loop by radio signals. An interface is connected to the loop in the same way as any other interface, such as an Input/Output Unit.
Every XPander device is assigned an address and this address is recognised by the control panel in the same way as the address of any device connected directly to the loop wiring.
