Flex Series
GWF402 and
2 and 4 Zone Conventional
Fire Alarm Control Panels
The Flex 402 is a two zone fire alarm control panel (FACP)
and the Flex 404 is a four zone FACP. These control panels provide reliable fire signaling protection for small to
medium sized retail, office, multi-family, or other similar
commercial or institutional building.
Initiating device circuits (IDCs) for Flex Series panels are
power limited and operate in Style B (Class B). Each panel
is compatible with conventional input devices such as twowire smoke detectors, four-wire smoke detectors, pull stations, water flow devices, tamper switches and other normally-open contact devices. This includes System Sensor
i3™ Series microprocessor-based detectors with advanced
features like drift compensation, maintenance alert and
freeze warning. (See Device Compatibility Document PN
52195 for a listing of compatible devices.)
Outputs include one notification appliance circuit (NAC) on
the Flex 402 and two NACs on the Flex 404. NACs are
power limited and operate in Style Y (Class B). Each FACP
has a Form-C Alarm and Trouble relay and 24 VDC special
applications resettable power. In addition, the Flex 404 has
a Form-C Supervisory relay and a special application nonresettable power output. The FACP supervises wiring, AC
voltage and battery level.
Activation of a compatible smoke detector or any normallyopen fire alarm initiating device will activate audible and
visual signaling devices, illuminate an indicating LED,
sound the piezo sounder at the FACP, activate the FACP
alarm relay and operate and optional modules used to
notify a remote station or initiate an auxiliary control
Both the Flex 402 and Flex 404 fire alarm control panels
are listed to UL® Standard 864, 9th Edition.
