Analogue Addressable

The MINERVA® MX T2000 is supplied with 2 loops and is expandable to eight loops using additional loop expansion cards. The panel will support up to 1000 addressable devices.  It has been approved by all the major marine authorities and its advanced proven microprocessor based system provides conventional as well as addressable detection at the price of today's conventional systems.

Modular in design, the MINERVA® MX T2000 provides economical fire detection for small vessels but is also flexible enough to implement the complex event procedures required in larger ones.

Detectors are controlled in groups of up to 240 zones all software configurable, so avoiding the expensive need to hardwire each zone back to the control panel. Further savings are made possible by harnessing the power of the latest micro processing technology to enable a single loop of two-core cabling to carry both detection and command signals. Backwards compatibility is also achieved by using an ancillary module that allows existing fire systems to be updated and extended cost effectively, utilizing existing wiring where possible and with minimal disruption.

Other ancillary modules offer even greater system flexibility: short circuit sensing isolation ensures the T2000 continues in operation, even if a wiring fault occurs. Local sounder activation further reduces wiring costs and switch monitoring allows easy interface to a vessels machinery control system. Further flexibility and installation savings can be made using the loop power T2000 options. Loop powered T2000 panels allow sounders to be powered from the same loop wires that carry communications and power to the detectors and other ancillaries.

The T2000 panels are intelligent EN54approved and marine approved sub-panels, which can be networked. A test report detailing compliance to naval test requirements for Shock , Vibration & EMC (NES814 , NES 1004 Iss 2 & DefStan 59-41) is available.
