The Foundation Series is a complete, off-the-shelf fire detection solution featuring both addressable and non-addressable models and a full range of reliable, proven Simplex devices.

The Simplex Foundation Series features four new fire alarm control units, including two non-addressable models with both four- and eight-zone options and two addressable models with 50- and 250-point options. The addressable control units feature a 4-line by 40-character LCD display. The series also includes a full range of notification appliances, sensors and annunciators.
