Flex Series
10 Zone Expandable Conventional
Fire Alarm Control Panel
The Flex 410 is a ten zone fire alarm control panel (FACP)
expandable to twenty or thirty zones using optional CZM400 zone expander module(s). The Flex 410 is ideal for a
wide range of different sized installations such as hotels,
schools, correctional institutions, health care facilities,
small office buildings, and manufacturing plants.
Initiating device circuits (IDCs) for the Flex 410 can be programmed as either ten Class B (Style B) or five Class A
(Style D) circuits. This is expandable to either twenty Class
B (ten Class A), or thirty Class B (fifteen Class A) IDC circuits. The panel is compatible with a variety of conventional two-wire smoke detectors, four-wire smoke
detectors, and notification appliances. This includes System Sensor i3™ Series microprocessor-based detectors
with advanced features like drift compensation, maintenance alert and freeze warning. (See Appendix A of the
Flex 410 Installation & Operations Manual PN 151321 for a
list of compatible devices.)
Outputs include four Class B (Style Y) or two Class A
(Style Z) supervised notification appliance circuits (NACs)
to annunciate alarm conditions. NAC circuits support single
circuit synchronization, regulated. Three programmable
auxiliary relay outputs can be programmed to activate (for
all zones or individual zones): pre-alarm, fire alarm, auxiliary alarm, alarm by zone and system or circuit troubles
(e.g., loss of AC, low battery, communication failure, phone
line trouble, fire drills, and NAC trouble).
The Flex 410 includes a built-in digital alarm communicator
(DACT) to report status to a central station. A user-friendly,
two-line LCD display and tactile keypad makes system programming and control easy. The Flex 410 cabinet can be
flush- or surface-mounted and a Plexiglas window/deadfront door kit is available where jurisdictions require. The
fully regulated, efficient 6-amp power supply with charger
ensures adequate power is available at all times.

Each GWCZM-400 zone expander provides the control panel with ten additional
Class B (Style B) zones or five Class A
(Style D) zones. The GWCZM-400 connects to the control panel via the panel
SBUS and is supervised and power limited.
Up to two zone expanders can be used per
panel. Mounts in FACP or into a
GWCAB400-A accessory cabinet.
GWIOM-410 This status display module provides outputs and control functions for remote
annunciation of alarm, trouble, and supervisories for each zone. The system can
supervise up to eight GWIOM-410 status
display modules. Mounts in FACP or into a
GWCAB400-A accessory cabinet.
GWRAN-400 The GWRAN-400 remote annunciator can
perform all system control operations. It
also provides trouble and alarm information
and can be used for programming. The
FACP can support up to four GWRAN-400
remote annunciators. Mounts in dual gang
electrical box.
GWCAB400-A This accessory cabinet is used for mounting GWCZM-400 zone expander and/or
GWIOM-410 status display module.
GWPLEX-2GA This door option combines a dead-front
panel with a clear bicarbonate window to
limit access to the control panel. Used for
jurisdictions where single button operation
is required.
