EST4 represents a great leap forward in life safety capability, drawing on the strength and success of its predecessor – EST3 – to deliver the industry’s most robust and thoughtfully crafted networked life safety platform.


A modular panel provides extraordinary flexibility and customizable configuration, allowing you to include only the capabilities you need and to easily exclude those you don’t, while also providing future expansion capability.


EST4 adapts to a multitude of facility and campus layouts, reducing the cost of networked systems. And UL-listed proxy firewalls help protect your system against cyber threats when connecting to outside networks.


EST4’s distributed audio and impressive capacity of 100 channels per system make EST4 the clear choice to deliver critical messages when and where they are needed.


Wiring, devices, and most local EST3 rail modules are fully backwards compatible with EST4, providing easy migration paths and an economical transition to new technology.


While EST4 meets the rigorous UL864 fire alarm controls standard and UL2572 standard for mass notification today, its design is ready to adapt to future code and standard changes.


From the big picture to the small details, EST4 is engineered to make protection as flexible, efficient, and user-friendly as possible.

Intelligent Fire Alarm Systems

iO64, iO1000


EDWARDS brand intelligent life safety systems offer the power of high-end intelligent processing in configurations that deliveruncomplicated solutions for small to mid-sized applications. With intelligent detection, electronic addressing, automatic device mapping, optional Ethernet® connectivity, and a full line of easilyconfigured option cards and modules, these flexible systems offer versatility that benefits building owners and contractors alike.

The iO64 provides one Class A or Class B intelligent device loop that supports up to 64 device addresses, and two Class B Notification Appliance Circuits (NACs). Optional Class A device wiring is available with the use of a module.

The iO1000 provides one Class A or Class B intelligent device loop that supports up to 250 device addresses. Loop controller modules may be added in combination to expand total system capacity in 250-point increments to up to 1,000 device addresses. The iO1000 panel includes four NACs that may be wired for either Class A or Class B operation.

The RZI16-2 module adds even more capacity to iO installations by adding up to 16 conventional device circuits and two additional notification appliance circuits. This makes them an ideal retrofit solution that can accommodate new intelligent detectors, as well as existing conventional devices.

iO Series supports a wide range of high-end features, including:

    • Supports 10-Year Carbon Monoxide detectors
    • R-Series remote annunciators
    • SIGA-REL Releasing Modules
    • Fully integrated CO detection using Signature Series detectors with or without audible signaling


  • Auto-programming reduces installation time
  • Supports Signature Series intelligent modules and detectors
  • Combines the Signature intelligent releasing module with Signature multisensor detectors for reliable fire suppression
  • Electronic addressing with automatic device mapping
  • Optional Ethernet port (SA-ETH) for central station monitoring service, programming, diagnostics and a variety of system reports.
  • Two programmable switches with LEDs and custom labeling
  • Supports Genesis horn silence over two wires, and UL 1971-compliant strobe synchronization
  • Optional multi-protocol Field Server Bridge for interface to 3rd party Building Management Systems.
  • Ground fault detection by module
  • Supports up to eight serial annunciators, (LCD, LED-only, and graphic interface)
  • Can use existing wiring for most retrofit applications
  • Upload/download remotely or locally
  • Optional USB module for local printing or programming using the configuration utility on a technician’s laptop.
  • Two-level maintenance alert reporting
  • Pre-alarm and alarm verification by point
  • Adjustable detector sensitivity
  • 4 x 20 character backlit LCD display
  • Optional earthquake hardening: seismic Importance Factor 1.5
  • Standalone operation
  • Alarm ON command manually activates alarm condition
  • Form C contacts for alarm and trouble, Form A for supervisory
