The Multi-Connect Expander (MC-1000) allows up to sixty-three (63) IPA and AFC/ARC series fire alarm control panels to share a single reporting technology. Each MC-1000 supports communication between the host reporting panel and two client panels. The MC-1000 communicates with the host and client control panels via the Potter P-Link communication bus. The MC-1000 can be mounted in either the control panel cabinet, the intelligent power supply/P-Link repeater, the PSN-1000E, AE-2, AE-8 or the AE-14 expander cabinet. Each card is mounted to the exclusive Stacker Bracket for secure and accessible mounting.
