Encoder is often mentioned in the installation and testing of a fire alarm system. Some people might wonder, what is a Encoder in fire alarm system? This passage will introduce what a Encoder is and what its functions are.
In conventional fire detectors, the coding needs to be done by manually dial settings. Since coding requires high technological operation, and manually dial settings is slow and prone to be incorrect once in a while, there might be wrong codes in the fire alarm system sometimes.
Other than that, the fire detector will have to reserve a coding port at the bottom, and it will easily lead to bad sealing. The poor protection against the dust and moisture will affect the performance of fire detectors.
For the Encoder in the fire alarm system, it only needs to be operated by its keyboard, and can do the coding by inputting decimal numbers, which is simple and easy to learn. People can use the Encoder to read and write the addresses of the fire detectors and the modules, knowing the sensitivity of the fire detectors.
Besides, people can also use the Encoder to look through the device batch numbers. The Encoder can also be used to set the address of the fire annunciator, the total number of sounder beacons and their corresponding user codes, convenient for on-site testing and maintenance.
ASENWARE offers Encoder in the fire alarm system, a portable device that can read the addresses of other addressable devices. It is a necessary tool in the process of installation, testing and maintenance of the fire alarm system. Its main functions are addressing and reading the addresses of the devices, modifying the modes of the sounder beacons, modules and detectors, counting the number of devices, testing device communication and starting or stopping devices, etc.
