16-Way Switch & 48 LED Card – AUP-538

The 16-way Switch & 48 LED Card is an expansion peripheral that offers 16 inputs and 48 outputs that can be configured via the Advanced PC Config Tool.

This additional PCB provides a cost effective solution to providing 16 individually programmable push buttons for controlling fire alarm equipment.

Up to 16 cards can be connected to an Axis AU series panel, providing a maximum of 256 push buttons and 768 LED outputs.

Each LED output can be individually assigned to an output group to provide full support for dynamic zoning and to indicate when the buttons have been activated.

Ideal for any application where a number of programmable push button switches are required for evacuation and plant control.
