Fratech Electronics Pty Ltd, has been a major Australian player in the Security Electronics industry for many years.
Following its recent acquisition by Inner Range Pty Ltd, Fratech continues to build an enviable reputation for quality, innovation and reliability in security systems.
As a standalone receiver, the FE900 packs a powerful punch: It can talk to automation systems via TCP/IP using its built-in Ethernet ports, and/or via its isolated RS232 ports, receive alarms in most communications formats on up to 32 PSTN lines and receive IP-Based Alarms via TCP/IP.
The FE900 builds upon the foundation of reliability and dependability it’s predecessor, the FE100 was renowned for.
Extending upon a strong pedigree, FE900 offers: Hot-swappable cards that auto-configure, a non-volatile 30,000 event buffer, Smart call answering, extensive self-diagnostics and very low power consumption. Line cards come with 8kV isolation and three-stage lightning protection.
Line Cards also feature an advanced DSP engine which ensure reliable communications under harsh line conditions. One can also install a redundant processor card.
These impressive hardware features are merely the tip of the iceberg – What sets the FE900 further apart from it’s competitors is the configuration and management software tool that ships with the FE900.
The client/server design of the FE900 software allows operators to configure, monitor and manage receivers remotely from any point of an IP network.
For instance, one can zoom to any Line Card on any FE900 in their system and interact with it.
From one location (or indeed many locations), operators can manage FE900 receivers that are spread all around the globe.
