The article features the new addressable fire system technology which uses unshielded and untwisted wire and provides enterprises with better return on investment. This new system consists of a fire alarm panel which is the heart of the system and modern addressable panels which provide superior precision in identifying as to the source of the fire. It can give lots of savings because it avoids rewiring unlike with the other system that connects by way of twister and shielded pair.
