Looks good. Nice and neat.

Looks brag-worthy!

I like the little identification tags, what are they?

Looks nice! Most FA panels I've been in have been a nightmarish rat's nest. What kind of system is it?
Are all of those SLC's? I don't have a problem with the resistors at the panel in burg alarms but fire is a different story. Especially when troubleshooting.
The panel looks for the resistor or it's in trouble. Yes it's addressable. Monaco m2.

Class A

3m scotch code wire marker
I forgot to take before pics ( as usual ) But it looked terrible.

Old system 3
On the F.A systems I've done, the resistors are always out in the field at the E.O.L device. What is the setup here?

These



or these



They are cloth tape like the old adhesive athletic tape.

We're not permitted to enter FACPs anywhere but the bottom.

Really? I've never heard that.

Do you always box the batteries separately?

This one states right on the bottom do not enter. Do you still come in the bottom in this case?
It looks nice , but I've never understood the reasoning for EOL's returning back to the panel ? It's a colossal waste of wire in my opinion . I've always put my end of lines in accessible easy to teach devices and that device is marked EOL . Are you sure that's an addressable system ?

Look up a class "A" system. The intent is to provide a redundant path should there be a fault or open in the circuit.

I've ripped out non addressable zoned panels that were that size and replaced them with addressable Siemens , notifier , and Edwards equipment less than half that size .

. I know what a class " A " system Is , but in 22 years , never put one in . Ripped a bunch out though , lol !

. I've worked with a lot of vendors installing FA systems in schools , office buildings , high rises and generally class " A " systems were what was being replaced . I'm not saying it's never done around here , but I've yet to come across it .

Ok then. I'll just disregard this ^^^^^
