ProFyre C8 Conventional Fire Alarm Panel


Key Features

  • EN54 Part 2 & 4 Approved
  • 1, 2, 4, 6 or 8 zone circuits
  • Up to 4 conventional sounder circuits
  • Fire and Fault relays
  • Key-pad, key-less activate controls


A compact, fully-featured, cost effective conventional fire alarm panel, available in 1, 2, 4, 6 or 8 zone versions. The ProFyre C8 system is the ideal choice for small to medium sized ‘conventional style’ system installations, where a reliable and easy to install automatic fire detection and alarm solution is required.

Control panels have either 2 or 4 sounder solid-state fused outputs (depending upon model), together with fire and fault voltage free contacts for connecting to auxiliary plant and remote services.

ProFyre Conventional Devices

All devices have been designed with ease of installation and commissioning in mind, thereby saving time and associated costs. The products are all manufactured to exacting standards, and have a high quality, attractive finish enabling the products to be specified and installed in the most aesthetically demanding environments.

Complemented by a complete range of ProFyre conventional field devices, the ProFyre C8 is the logical choice for systems that require clear alarm management and ease of use.

Compatible with Apollo Conventional Devices

The ProFyre C8 control panel has been independently tested and approved by Apollo Fire Detectors for use with Series 65 and Orbis devices in accordance with Apollo compatibility test schedule TSP03.

Mounting Options

The ProFyre C8 has been designed to accommodate various applications. A single version that can be mounted surface or semi-flush.

Excellent Access

The C8 has a fully removable front providing excellent access during installation and commissioning. Internal electronics are on a single removable PCB, allowing installation to be carried out at any stage without risk of damage to internal electronics and controls.

Battery Capacity

The ProFyre C8 can accommodate for up to two 12V 7Ah sealed lead acid (SLA) rechargeable batteries for applications that require a longer standby requirement.

Panel Compartment

The C8 enclosure has a sliding compartment door which holds both the installation and user manuals allowing easy access to information when needed.

Wi-Fyre Compatible

It is possible to combine a Wi-Fyre transponder and its associated wireless field devices with an existing hard-wired conventional zone circuit, sounder circuit or a combination of both. This enables Wi-Fyre field devices to seamlessly co-exist with existing fire detectors and sounders on the same circuit.


The ProFyre C8 is fully approved by BSI for safe use and installation in any European Union country and bears the CE mark to show that it complies with all the applicable Directives including the CPR, EMC and the Low Voltage Directive (LVD).
