Coded panels were made during the 1800s to 1970s. They are one of the initial types of fire alarm control panel. Like today’s conventional panels, each zone from these panels was connected to its own code wheel. The size of these panels was usually large. A whole mechanical room was occupied by the panel and its code wheel. Also, the codes had to be maintained. Sometimes, the codes were written on the pull stations to avoid confusion. These panels are not used as much today. The new growing technology has now replaced the coded panel system.
The conventional panel includes one or more circuits that are wired directly to the initiating devices. Conventional panels are working since the time electronics were used. A normal current passes through the circuit to other connected zones. When these zones detect the smoke or gas, the current starts moving back to the panel. The panel detects the current and responds back by ringing the alarm. The number of zones used depends completely on the need of the premises.
The most commonly used panel in today’s time is the addressable fire alarm panel. Unlike conventional panels, these work on a microprocessor. It means, there is no use of electric current to send messages to the panel. The detector and the panel are connected to the microprocessor that is placed on the entire premises. The processor sends data of the detector to the panel. These type of panels also tells you if the detector is not working properly.
