GFW 1800 series of panels and Network repeater panel support networking over "Arcnet"
protocol. Total of 128 panels and network repeaters can be connected on the network.
All the panels on the network are referred as "nodes". Fi-Warn supports both Copper
as well as Fiber cables as the network back-bone. Each fire alarm panel protects
its own area, it also monitors and controls other areas (other panels that are connected
on network). Information of all the nodes that are connected over the network is
displayed at each node on the network. In areas like security room where the entire
network needs to be monitored network repeater panels are available.
