What are Fire Panel Batteries?
Fire Panel Batteries are in fire alarm control panels to give a fire alarm system backup power in the event of a mains failure. This ensures that the panel will keep operating correctly and continue protecting the building effectively.
A Fire Alarm Control Panel is the controlling component of a fire alarm system. The panel receives information from environmental sensors such as heat or smoke detectors. These detect changes in the environment associated with fire.
Once fire detection occurs, the Fire Alarm Control Panel can produce both audible and visual alarms to warn building occupants of impending changer. It can be used to carry out tasks such as shutting down air-conditioning systems. It is critical that it have backup power as it carries out these vital functions. Specialised fire panel batteries supply that backup power.
