The Argus module range provides an ideal solution to the monitoring and control requirements of most fire detection and alarm systems, ranging from small and simple, to large and complex. By utilising the Argus fully digital communication protocol, reliable and fast operation is achieved even when employing the impressive 240 device loop capacity. A choice of mechanical configurations provides easy integration of the units into a variety of field locations. The VMIC120 is mounted on a standard faceplate and can be used with a surface back box or flush mounted and provides the capability to both remotely monitor a single circuit and control a single ancillary circuit using a set of volt-free changeover relay contacts. The input circuit is monitored for fault and an alarm condition. Bi-colour LEDs provide local indication of device status.
