XPander is Apollo's wireless intelligent detector range.
Detectors are often installed in buildings where wiring presents a challenge. This could be because the fabric of the building or its design will be negatively affected by the use of cables. It is sometimes very difficult to introduce cable runs into buildings which were not designed for the modern age. It is for these architecturally sensitive buildings that XPander has been developed.
XPander is a system in which individual detectors, call points and alarm devices communicate with the loop by radio signals. An interface is connected to the loop in the same way as any other interface, such as an Input/Output Unit.
As with any wireless system, it is essential that a survey is carried out before installation to ensure suitable coverage is acheived. It is also strongly recommended that training is undertaken.
Please note up to 5 interfaces can be installed per site.
