ES Net Features

ES Network (ES Net) is an IP-based fire alarm network with a high bandwidth (100 Mbps) that supports up to 99 nodes high bandwidth (100 Mbps) that supports up to 99 nodes and utilizes industry-standard network technology and industry-standard network technology and infrastructure for superior design and installation flexibility.

Network-wide system upgrade from a single point

ES Net allows you to apply software updates to all network nodes through a single download. The high bandwidth ES Net network can perform software updates to all 99 nodes from a single location at any node on the network in minutes, increasing system up-time and reducing business interruptions.

Simplex Fire 4120 Network Migrations

Use the TrueSite Workstation to integrate ES Net installations with existing 4120 networks. This allows a phased migration path for existing installations. In some cases, you may reuse existing network infrastructure and cabling to lower the migration cost of ES Net migrations.

Synchronization of network devices

  • It is not possible to perform network synchronization of notification devices on an ES Network; however, network synchronization of notification devices on an ES Network is not possible.
  • Devices on an ES Network; however, network synchronization of notification devices is provided synchronization for all notification devices connected to a single panel or node.

Advanced Diagnostics

ES Net provides advanced network diagnostic tools and reports that are easy to read. Detailed information about network communication health and status is available, allowing technicians to pinpoint problems and reduce the time required to troubleshoot network communication issues.
