Advanced has recently launched a new card and network node making its market-leading networking more flexible and configurable than ever.

The PENN (Peripheral Expansion Network Node) allows Advanced’s range of peripheral input and output cards to be placed anywhere on the network, and up to 1.5km from the nearest fire panel or next PENN node.

Up to 32 peripheral cards – covering everything from input, interface and i/o cards to relay, sounder, LED and switch cards – can be attached to a PENN, and 199 PENNs can be added to a network. Therefore, the PENN makes Advanced’s fire panel offering more flexible.

Aston Bowles, head of marketing at Advanced, said: “Freeing the peripheral cards from the panel is a good idea, but the creative ways our customers are using the PENN and peripheral cards to solve installation and configuration challenges is genuinely surprising, and we’re seeing it used on all manner and sizes of projects.”

The PENN is compatible with Advanced’s MxPro multiprotocol panels and Axis EN fire systems.
