This fire safety system overview shows the most important system components of Cerberus® PRO – from powerful panels and clever fire detectors to smart peripheral devices.
Fig.: Solutions from simple to complex. Management, automation, and field level for flexible planning.
The fire system overview graphic also depicts how the fire system components can be connected with each other:
C-NET – detector bus network for linking fire detectors and peripherals
The C-NET is a modern, multipurpose detector bus system that allows flexible planning and installation: all detectors and peripheral devices share the same loop. The C-NET devices of the fire system communicate and get their power supply directly via the C-NET – without additional cabling.
Cluster (C-WEB/SAFEDLINK) – network for linking panels and fire terminals
Up to 16 fire control panels and/or operator terminals can be networked in one cluster (C-WEB/SAFEDLINK) – if the fire system is connected to a danger management station. Without a danger management station, even 32 panels can be networked in one cluster.
Backbone (C-WEB/LAN) – LAN network for linking clusters
Up to 14 clusters with up to 16 panels each can be networked via an EN 54-approved fiber-optic backbone (C-WEB/LAN). Due to the backbone, Cerberus PRO can even depict highly complex building structures and organizational processes. This makes the backbone the ideal solution when planning a large and complex fire system for universities, for example, with buildings spread over an extensive campus.
