Intelligent Single Loop Life Safety Control Panel

EST’s QS1 life safety control panel brings big-system intelligent control to small applications. Designed for easy setup and simple installation, QuickStart lives up to its name in every respect.


QS1’s exclusive QuickStart auto-learn function, and the option of configuring the panel using convenient front panel programming or from a PC, makes short work of system setup. Devices come on-line in no time as well, thanks to QS1’s built-in barcode scanner port. A simple pass of the optional scanner is all it takes to store device information in the QuickStart database. The scanner can also be used for quick and easy text entry when assembling custom messages.

QS1’s setup routine is deceptively simple, considering this system’s robust features. Supporting up to 250 intelligent detectors and modules, QS1 takes full advantage of EST’s exclusive Signature Series technology, which provides electronic addressing, automatic device mapping, environmental compensation, and true multisensor detection.
QuickStart’s innovative design makes it easy to add a dialer or extra auxiliary relays. Quick-Lok option cards snap onto QS1’s easily-accessible DIN mounting rails. QS1 also supports as many as eight remote annunciators and up to 30 programmable front panel switches with dual LEDs for system control and display.
QS1 is as simple to operate as it is to set up. Its large 14-line backlit LCD display provides easy-to-understand details concerning up to 1,000 system events, while bright system status LEDs and large, tactile control buttons present the user with a clean, crystal clear interface. Four password levels limit control and information retrieval to authorized personnel. A priority access keyswitch gives Level 2 access without a password to management and emergency personnel.
