New CF2000 addressable control panel from Eaton

Published:  11 July, 2014

The enhanced entry-level intelligent addressable control panel contains a number of new features to meet industry and regulatory requirements. 

The new CF2000GCPD can be configured for either one or two loop operation, with up to 200 addresses per loop, designed to allow fast and accurate identification of a fire alert’s location. Equipped with four sounder circuits, the CF2000GCPD is designed to meet all the customers’ needs in the target application market. Certified to EN54 parts two and four, it is designed with ease of installation in mind.

Iain Scott, Product Manager at Eaton’s Fire Systems business, commented: “The introduction of the new CF2000 unit follows an intensive period of product development to meet the industry expectations for an entry level addressable panel. Developed with smaller applications in mind, the simple interface is designed to give customers complete and easy control.”

It features a graphical display providing the user with a simple yet comprehensive menu-driven end-user interface. With the ability to fully support Eaton cause-and-effect programming and a wide range of easy-to-operate end user control functions, the new control panel is suitable for a variety of applications – ranging from small warehouses to small/medium office developments as well as many small industrial applications.

As with all Eaton intelligent addressable panels, the CF2000GCPD uses ‘spur tolerant’ soft addressing to minimise installation time and remove the potential for errors associated with many forms of manual addressing. The back box of the new control panel can be surface mounted with cable entry points in the top, bottom and rear. The mother board and power supply are mounted on a sub chassis which is easily removed to aid panel fitting.

As the CF2000GCPD can operate as a one or two loop panel, it is able to carry up to 400 addresses on both loops combined. Using Eaton system protocol, the panel ‘auto-learns’ the equipment mounted on the loops and ‘soft addresses’ each item ensuring a simple setup procedure while reducing the time required for system setup. All loop-mounted equipment has integral short circuit isolators fitted ensuring loop integrity is maintained should a short circuit fault occur on the loop.

The new control panel also features a comprehensive range of interface units including the CSI350 spur isolator, which permits Eaton intelligent addressable sensors to be connected to the loop as a spur.
