Graphic Annunicator Interface The GCI Graphic Annunicator is an interface card that connects the fire alarm control panel to the display panel of an LED-based graphic annunciator.
The annunciator card supports 32 LEDs and 16 switches on the graphic panel display. It includes status LEDs and an internal buzzer.
The graphic interface is supplied with snap track mounting. It is attached to a plastic mounting rail that requires two EIA panels.
The annunciator communicates with the FACP on the RS-485 data riser. This can be configured for Class A or Class B communication. The annunciator does not provide ground fault isolation. It is a stand-alone unit that can be powered by the FACP or by an approved power supply. Graphic Annunicator Interface
