VdS approval: G 209138

The IQ8FCT LP can be used to control and Monitor external fire control devices like fire dampers or as a technical alarm component (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 LP 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 LP and the fire control panel. The IQ8FCT LP is also equipped with configurable fail save functionality. If enabled, a communication loss with control Panel results in automatic selfactivation of relay output.

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