DSC Introduces the PowerSeries PC1404 Control Panel and Keypad

Cost-effective solutions paired with impressive functionality

ESSEN, Germany, 25th September, 2012 – DSC, part of Tyco Security Products, has introduced the new PowerSeries PC1404 Control Panel and the PowerSeries PC1404RKZ Keypad, both designed to deliver a simple, cost-effective means to manage and control security systems without compromising on quality.

The PowerSeries PC1404 Control Panel offers four on-board zones that are expandable to eight. It can support up to four keypads, including the new PowerSeries PC1404RKZ, and four phone numbers. Ideal for budget-conscious users who need a robust security solution, this control panel includes two on-board PGM outputs, and is expandable to 14 PGM through expansion modules.

The PC1404 Control Panel has numerous false alarm prevention features and continuously monitors for potential trouble conditions. It supports 2- or 4-wire smoke detectors and its flexible zone configuration allows for 29 zone types and 11 programmable zone attributes. Further marking this panel’s configurable options is its ability to support 39 individual user codes and one master code with six programmable user code attributes.

The eight-zone LED wired keypad was created with cost-conscious installations in mind, and can serve as an additional keypad in an existing installation. Its clean, all-white design blends with any décor and the large integrated number pad features 12 input buttons and 16 easy-to-read status lights.

The keypad’s small size makes it ideal for tight spaces, and the housing design includes an integrated wiring channel for quick, easy installation. An optional nightlight powered by two white on-board LEDs, with adjustable brightness level, enables the keypad to be easily found in darkened conditions.

Critical alarms are simple to access on the PC1404RKZ. Users need to simply press and hold for two seconds the 1 and 3 keys for fire, the 4 and 6 keys for auxiliary and the 7 and 9 keys for panic. The remaining keys can be programmed for simple one-button functions and holding those keys for two seconds activates commonly used functions such as stay, away and door chimes.
