EST 3 Panel


EST3 is a robust modular control panel that unifies fire alarm, smoke control, security and mass notification systems. The EST3 fire alarm system is a leader in the field with the ability to have network panels with overall length in excess of 300,000 ft. Making the EST3 an ideal solution for any size facility. The EST3 system accomplishes this by using a token ring network delivering fast alarm response times across any size network. With intelligent devices throughout the network the EST3 system ensures uncompromising quality in the detection of fires in your building.

The extensibility of smart devices through the field, plays a key role in the EST3 system in providing additional features such as security and mass notification. The EST3 control panel is listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) in the categories of fire, smoke control, security and was the first fire alarm system UL listed to the new UL 2572 Mass Notification standard. Whether you have a new installation or an existing EST3 installation, you will be able to leverage the fire alarm system infrastructure for new mass notification requirements. This integration leverages the subsystems of the fire alarm saving time and money in the deployment of smoke control, mass notification and security.

How To


In order to silence the EST3 or EST3X fire alarm system you need to determine if you will be performing an Alarm Silence or a Panel Silence.

Panel Silence

Panel silence is performed when the annunciator or main fire alarm panel are beeping. The beeping of the panel is local to either of these devices and there are no lights or horns generating noise throughout the building. This local beeping means there's a component that's currently in trouble. To silence the local beeping of the panel simply press the Panel Silence Button. When this button is pressed the green led next to the button will light up and the panel will stop making the sound. Please note that in the event new trouble conditions are generated by the panel, the local beeping will begin again and building personal will need to silence the panel once more. Once the panel has been silence make sure to contact us to schedule a service technician to further investigate the issue with your system.

Alarm Silence

Alarm silence is performed when you need to silence the fire alarm system due to an alarm condition being detected. During an alarm conditions the strobes and horns/speakers in the building will be active. Before performing the alarm silence for the building, security or maintenance personal should verify the alarm condition displayed on the panel, by investigating the physical location where the event is being reported. Once the event is confirmed as a false alarm the building personal can press the Alarm Silence button. This will turn off the horn/speakers throughout the building, but the lights will continue to flash.


Panel reset is performed when you want the system to cycle through all devices and verify the states. This is typically performed after an alarm condition, once the device that triggered the event has been reset. For example if a tenant activates a pull station in the building, maintenance personnel will need to reset the pull station back to the original position before using the reset function. Once all devices are set to the original state simply press the Rest button, the depending on the size of the system it might take a few minutes to receive the all clear. Once the system is clear all alarm audio and visual will be turned off in the building.

System On Test

Placing the system on test is usually performed when work is being done in a property that might accidentally trigger the fire alarm system in a building. While the system is on test if an alarm is triggered the horns/speakers and flashing lights will be triggered, but the fire alarm will not notify the fire department. So its crucial if a fire event occurs during a test period, personnel notify the proper authorities in case of an actual emergency. To place the system in test you will need your account number, password and central station phone number. When you speak to one of our representatives you will need to give them the amount of time to place the system on test.

Note there's a limit of 8 hours that a system can be on test.
