Gamewell - FCI New Addressable Fire Alarm Control Panel for Those Smaller Applications

S3 SeriesTM Small Addressable Fire Alarm Control Panel

The Gamewell-FCI S3 Series(TM) Fire Alarm System is an easy-to use, intelligent, fire alarm solution designed for small to mid-sized buildings. Analog technology delivers the benefi ts of a simple system installation, while a user-friendly touch-screen allows for quick, smart and intuitive panel operation and system maintenance. Offering flexibility and expandability, the S3 Series system operates as a standalone system or as a network configured system, providing the perfect fire alarm solution for any small to mid-size application. As your facility grows, the S3 Series expands up to 122 panels through its networking ability. In addition, the S3 Series will communicate to our E3 Series® Emergency Evacuation System all on one pair of wires, when and if your facility requires additional mass notifi cation protection, so it is the cost effective solution when it comes to installation.

Taking the Fear out of the Fire Alarm

The front panel of the S3 Series offers a 4.3” color touch-screen for simple operation by facility managers and fi rst responders. Much like consumer electronics today, use of a touch-screen is preferred over a myriad of buttons and switches for convenience and intuitive control. Our color touch-screen displays system status, event details and service modes. On the front of the panel, six LEDs show Fire, Hazard (Gas or CO), Supervisory, Silenced, AC Power and Trouble conditions. Five (5) custom programmable switches allow the user quick access to common functions specifi c for the building like device disable, output bypass, and device status.

Gamewell - FCI Mass Notification System

Mass Notification Solutions - E3 Series®

Those looking for a solid Mass Notification System (MNS) turn to the E3 Series® Expandable Emergency Evacuation System for their solution. The E3 Series® strength, flexibility and survivability make it a perfect choice for keeping the public informed in the event of an emergency. The system’s ability to communicate real time information regarding the type of emergency that is occurring, and safely instruct people on what to do, and where to go, offers building owners, government officials, and facility managers a simple, proven answer to their safety requirements. Emergency Communication is distributed to particular zones or regions, on specific floors, buildings and outdoor locations spread out over a large area. Using a state-of-the art digital signal processor (DSP), the system provides reliable clear messaging, live voice instruction, text information across the network to all Local Operating Consoles (LOC). These distinctive features minimize confusion and panic during emergency conditions.


Using Broadband Technology enables full network control and emergency tones over two wires or fiber optic cable, reducing installation cost. In many cases, the Mass Notification System may be installed as part of a campus network fire alarm system. By engineering the E3 Series network with our “building block” approach, we combine mass notification with fire alarm control providing a seamless, cost effective, complete Emergency Communication System.


True peer-to-peer exchange of data packets ensures that each segment of the system operates independently, for fast clear and highly survivable emergency warning. Our E3 Series offers an MNS that can be configured as a standalone voice or incorporated into a state of the art UL 9th Edition, networked fire alarm system. With the addition of the Local Operating Console units combined with our 2-wire technology, we provide a true mass notification system with less hardware and less wire than the competition.


• True peer-to-peer architecture

• Supervised “Style 7” wiring

• Simple configuration of multiple LOCs

• Each node regenerates network communications

• Up to 64 network nodes combining standard E3 Series “building block” modules

• Utilizes state-of-the-art Digital Signal Processor

• Architecture based on ARCnet, one of the simplest, least expensive proven LANs available

• Network functions include: mass notification, fire alarm system control, fire fighter telephone, live voice paging, network wide text messaging to displays, and advanced network wide control
