E3 Series®
Control Panel
Expandable Emergency
Evacuation System
The E3 Series® Expandable Emergency Evacuation System by Gamewell-FCI is in the forefront of the latest generation of fire alarm control panels. Employing the new highspeed Velociti® sensors, the E3 Series provides previously
unattainable polling speed and response together with the
flexibility demanded by today’s emergency evacuation systems. In addition to their high-speed polling rate, the Velociti Series of sensors feature bi-polar LEDs that flash green
for normal polling, and light red steadily to indicate an
The E3 Series is equipped with an 80-character LCD-E3
alphanumeric LCD display that allows 40 characters to be
user-defined for custom installations. Up to six keyboard
LCD displays may also be remotely located. In addition,
you can install five of the familiar LCD-7100/RAN-7100
remote displays. The displays show instant system status
information and can be connected in any desired area of
an installation.
A high-speed 32-bit processor easily tackles a wide array
of applications from small office buildings to multi-complex,
high-rise installations.
The 64 node networking is made possible by 625K baud/
ARCNET communications using twisted-pair copper cable,
fiber-optic cable, or a combination of both. In addition, the
Addressable Node Expander (ANX) board expands the
network to 122 nodes.
The basic E3 Series is equipped with an ILI-MB-E3/ILI95MB-E3 Intelligent Loop Interface-Main Board, ILI-S-E3/
ILI95-S-E3 Intelligent Loop Interface Expansion Board,
ANX, and ASM-16 Addressable Switch Module that features 16 software programmable switches, each accompanied by red, green and yellow LEDs that can be
programmed to indicate operation of the switches. Additional ASM-16 modules may be added to expand the operation to a plateau previously unimagined.
The Intelligent Loop Interface - Expansion Board (ILI-S-E3/
ILI95-S-E3 provides the E3 Series control panel with two
additional electrically isolated signaling line circuits. The
layout is similar to the ILI-MB-E3/ILI95-MB-E3 with the
exception that a number of components are omitted. It
occupies one node on the Broadband network.

Description (Continued)
Features (Continued)
Each ILI-MB-E3/ILI95-MB-E3 can support as many as sixteen ANU-48 LED Driver modules supporting hundreds of
LEDs on a 3rd party graphic annunciator for remote annunciation. The ANU-48 modules may be installed in any
Listed remote annunciator. It can be remotely located via
an RS-485 serial interface.
An array of cabinets allows for neat, compact, attractive
Velociti® Intelligent Sensor Features:
The E3 Series expandable emergency evacuation system
offers four cabinet size options. A typical cabinet includes a
backbox, an inner door, and an outer door. The E3 Series
cabinet assembly is a compact 19 3/8” (49 cm) wide wallmounted enclosure.
Cabinet A includes the following four options:
• Cabinet A1 inner door mounted to the backbox. The
backbox houses one NGA module.
• Cabinet A2 inner door mounted to the backbox. The
backbox houses one LCD-E3 module.
• Two or three-bay inner door mounted to the backbox.
The backbox typically houses one LCD-E3, or one
NGA, and one or two ASM-16 modules.
Cabinet B contains a space for the ILI-MB-E3/ILI95-MB-E3,
PM-9/PM-9G modules and batteries set inside the backbox. Additional module options mounted on the backbox
include the DACT-E3, and RPT-E3 or ILI-S-E3/ILI95-S-E3/
ANX. The 2-bay inner door houses one LCD-E3 module
and one ASM-16 module.
Both Cabinets C and D include the following:
• Pre-assembled outer door that gives visibility to the fire
fighter’s phone handset and a microphone voice
messaging system.
• Two inner door panel selections that may contain
optional modules to meet the facility operation
In the Cabinet B, C and D backboxes, the ANX appears in
the same place as the ILI-MB-E3/ILI95-MB-E3 and PM-9/
PM-9G. For information on the installation instructions for
any of the E3 Series cabinets, refer to the E3 Series®
