7770 FireTap Accessory

Full Data for Fire Monitoring
Through a Serial Connection

The FireTap links a Fire Alarm Control Panel (FACP) with a central monitoring station through an AES-IntelliNet radio network – without phone lines! The AES 7770 FireTap can monitor any serial data source and retrieve Point ID data from the FACP. The data is then forwarded to the central station via the AES-IntelliNet wireless network. The FireTap interfaces via RS232 to the FACP using the printer port.
