VdS approval: G 209138

The IQ8FCT XS can be used to control and monitor external fire protection devices like fire dampers or as a technical alarm module (TAL) to monitor an external contact and control external load. The transponder is connected on the esserbus® / esserbus®-PLus loop of fire control system FlexES Control and IQ8Control.

FCT Functionality
In this function a fire control device e.g. fire damper will be connected to the relay output of the IQ8FCT XS and controlled according to the programming with configured runtime. Via the input the end positions of this external device are monitored. If the external device is leaving the set position e.g. at a power loss or is stuck a failure is recognized and indicated at the IQ8FCT XS and the fire control panel.

TAL Functionality
Here an external contact can be connected and monitored via the input of the IQ8FCT XS. In case of an activation of this contact, the address and programmed additional text of the corresponding technical alarm module IQ8FCT XS will be displayed.
