About this panel:

The 7100 was introduced in 1998 by FCI and was assimilated into the Gamewell-FCI lineup when the two companies merged in 2005. However, they have not changed much since the FCI days. They don't really need to, since the 7100 is a great panel for small to mid-size addressable applications and is very easy to program from the keypad or software. 7100's can be used as standalone panels or can be integrated into a NetSOLO Broadband voice system with the addition of a network card. The general design is quite similar to the E3 - in fact, the 7100 annunciator will operate on E3 systems. I imagine that the 7100 will soon be discontinued or replaced with a smaller non-expandable E3 "lite" panel. Similar competitor panels include the Simplex 4010, Fire-Lite MS-9200UDLS, EST iO500, and Silent Knight 5820XL.
