High Performance Panels

Axis AX is our highest performing ULC compliant panel range and comes complete with digital audio. Axis AX is the result of decades of fire alarm and detection experience and research and development involving installers, specifiers, consultants and end users across the world.

Axis AX panels have been designed to offer more power and performance in a user friendly format. 

Axis AX packs in more configuration, control and interface options than any comparable Advanced panel. Multiple advanced features mean it will maintain its performance advantages for years to come. 

All of the Intelligent Fire Alarm Control Panels in the AX Series consist of identical electronic modules and can be programmed from a laptop PC configuration tool. 

Axis AX’s features have been proven to sharply reduce installation time, help identify wiring and programming errors, provide local and remote system diagnostics as well as providing exceptional fire detection without nuisance alarms.

Every Axis AX panel features Advanced’s unbeatable networking capabilities and Dynamix Tools fire panel software making it easy to use, configure and maintain, from the smallest to the largest of sites and with complicated cause-and effect.

Intelligent Detectors and Loop Powered Intelligent Devices

All Advanced Intelligent Detectors and Loop Powered devices come with a 10 year warranty.

  • Built in automatic drift compensation that will maintain the detector’s sensitivity at a constant level even with severe chamber contamination.
  • Drift compensation values are stored in the head, not the fire panel, and remain there even if power is removed from the head.
  • 5 programmable sensitivity settings.
  • Built in periodic test facility that meets code requirements.
  • Programmable maintenance alert and dirty detector warning
  • All PCBs conformal coated to protect against corrosion
  • Patented XPerT address setting in the base protects against common errors that occur during servicing. Insures match between the base and type of detector as well as correct sensitivity setting.
  • Superior false alarm immunity
Relative Detector Sensitivity
  • Dual red LEDs, with 360 degree view, indicate polling and alarm activation.
  • High speed digital communications provide rejection of common ambient RF noise
  • Low profile
  • Resilient plastic (94 V0) that will not discolor over time
