Simplex ES Net fire and life safety network from Johnson Controls optimizes system design and installation flexibility while increasing network speed and performance. Supporting up to 687 nodes, ES Net is incredibly scalable, highly resilient and has the capacity to handle even the largest multi-building campus environments.
ES Net allows multiple network topologies (ring, star, bus and bridged rings) for enhanced design and installation flexibility, improved fault tolerance and the potential to reduce the conduit and wiring. A redundant system with battery backup, ES Net carries critical life safety data, digital audio, and firefighter’s telephone communication throughout the facility.
ES Net can also support supplemental network traffic, carrying data from other systems without any interference to fire alarm performance or emergency audio traffic. Devices such as security cameras, access control and building automation systems can now be seamlessly supported across the UL Listed, supervised, life safety network.
Harnessing the power of IP technology, ES Net handles data rates up to 100MB per second and a range of network media choices including Ethernet, DSL and fiber, giving building owners a platform for future growth and integration.
Centralized system management allows all control units on the loop to be upgraded from a single location for quicker upgrades and programming. Enhanced diagnostics and troubleshooting tools speed installation, makes service easier, and helps maximize uptime.
