As displayed at intersecexpo, Dubai a few days ago. Been hearing about it for a few years, good to see that it's real. Image

It looks like a very sleek and easy to use panel! I also like how modern and up to date it is!

I too like the sleek design, even better than the newer Simplex panels design. Interesting to see more companies come out with a sleek design like this for a fire panel.

Nice-looking panel! If those displays are indeed touchscreens (as they appear to be, judging by the minimal presence of buttons), this seems to be a pretty big upgrade from the EST3. At this point, the EST3 has been EST's flagship system for about 22 years, so it's refreshing to see some newness in their product lineup.

I wonder if Edwards plans to keep selling the EST3 for a few years after the EST4 hits the market (similarly to Siemens keeping the MXL around after introducing the XLS), therefore selling both panels concurrently, or if the EST3 will be phased out soon after the EST4's introduction.
