Vanguard V5 Hybrid Fire Alarm Panel Upgradeable Features:

1. LCD Display Unit provides:
LCD Displays: Provide log of alarm and fire activation zone, date and time.
Very useful during post event review.

999 Event Log: Stores the last 999 alarm and fire records for easy access.
Elimnates human recording errors.

Centralised event log: The LCD unit of the Main Alarm Panel stores all events 
including those occuring in the Sub Alarm Panels.

This feature can be retrofitted into existing V5 Hybrid panels.

Alarm Verification Feature (AVF) Unit
2. Alarm Verification Feature (AVF):
Reduces false alarms: The AVF upgrade enable the conventional panel to verify
alarms to reduce unwanted alarms and interruptions. When a zone is set to AVF
mode, any detector that is activated will be resetted by the AVF unit. The AVF will
wait for a predetermined interval call theverification period.

If another alarm is received during the verification period, it will inital the general alarm
condition and raise the normal alarm sequence.

However, if no subsequent alarm is received during the verification period, the AVF
unit will return to normal, thus sucessfully preventing a false alarm activation.

AVF Counter: The AVF counter provided with the AVF unit records the numbers of
interventions - providing positive confirmation of the effectiveness of the feature.

Current Status Indicator: Indicates 'AVF OFF',  'Retard State' and 'Confirmation State'.

3. Auxiliary Control Module (ACM) and Status Indicator Module (SIM)
The ACM and SIM allows the V5 Hybrid Fire Alarm Panel to be
expanded to accomodate additional monitoring inputs such as pump 
and tank status indication or control additional outputs for activation
of fans and shutters.

Each module provide 8 additional inputs or outputs.Status Indicator Module

4. Hardwire Addressable Upgrade
The V5 Hybrid can be upgraded into an addressable panel where it can record and display the address of each detector that is in alarm. This hardwire addressable feature works with ANY conventional detector. The addressable feature is an add-on to the system. It functions independently. Any failure in the addressable feature does not affect the normal function of the panel in any way. The address, zone, date and time of alarm are stored in the LCD display unit's 999 event memory and can be printed out if required.

Guardview - Graphical Alarm Management StationGuardview - Graphical Alarm Management Station
The Guardview offers user a graphical interface to manage the fire alarm system.
It works with conventional as well as with the hardwire addressable system.
The Guardview runs from a Windows based PC. 

During an alarm, the relevant alarm zone is displayed by the Guardview system. If the system has implemented the hardwire addressable upgrade, then the location of the alarmed detector is also indicated.

The Guardview records all alarm events in its database. The system allows events t be sorted based on my criteria and allows the information to be printed out.

The Guardview software allows user to add, modify and delete zone diagrams and detector addresses into the system. Access to the administrative functions are password protected. Three levels of access are available and numbers of users are unlimited.
