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.

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'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 .
