Just a little Notifier UDACT2 programming. This is in an old factory building being converted to a hotel. The hotel is a long way from being done but a tenant space on the 1st floor is almost ready for occupancy. Only 12 points are active for the tenant space. I know it's not exciting (really not exciting if you know the whole process of programming a UDACT2 on a 3030), but it is a view under the hood of a 3030. There is a LCM and an LEM behind the dialer and then another LCM to the right of the dialer so that is 3 SLC cards total. And that is an FCPS on the left side of the panel. Oh and that is my sweet new Notifier Onyx ProBook laptop... (Just kidding LOL! It's just a Dell) The real excitement will come when I have to program over 300 smoke detectors into the dialer.

Does that really need a panel? Wouldn't a sprinkler system be fine?

Damn, that's nice. That thing looks clean enough to eat off of! (Theoretically of course)

Interesting battery configuration I came across today - all I could think is why didn't they just put in two 18Ah batteries and save themselves all that trouble? The lower four batteries support the "shelf" for the upper batteries. This was giving them 24V at 13.6Ah.

Why would they do this, exactly?
