esserbus transponder FCT set 230 V


Approval: VdS

The FCT is used for the monitoring and operation of fire control systems such as ventilation, pressure monitor pumps, extinguishing agent sprinklers, fire dampers, smoke control flaps, elevators and many more. Time-dependent machine shutdowns can be carried out via two freely programmable relays. The pluggable modules (up to two modules can be connected) are each equipped with a contact input for operational feedback.

The comprehensive "fail-safe" function ensures that the transponder maintains full functionality and remains a self-sufficient activation device even if the FACP or field bus fails.

Using the 230 V version the mains voltage can be switched directly and be simultaneously used to power the transponder output. It is also possible to indirectly monitor the function of the mains voltage using internal logic.

The esserbus transponder FCT 12-24 V or 230 V is used as a loop device for the IQ8Control or FlexES control FACP. The tools 8000 programming software (as of version V1.15.1) is necessary for the start-up.
  • 230 V AC operation with optional function monitoring
  • Comprehensive fail-safe function during failure of the loop or mains voltage
  • Freely programmable relays
  • Monitoring contacts for monitoring of external devices
  • Time-dependent control of relay outputs
  • Optional: relay outputs with programmable impulse lengths
  • Reduction of amount of data transmitted to panel via build-in logic processing
  • Integrated loop isolator
  • Optional IP protection base for usage in difficult ambient conditions
