Fire Alarm System Control Panels Recalled for Software Upgrade

Gamewell-FCI, of Northford, Conn., is recalling to upgrade about 1,100 Gamewell-FCI 600 Series SmartScan Fire Alarm Control Panels. The software in the fire alarm system could fail to recognize when a detector needs servicing as a result of the buildup of dust, dirt, or other environmental pollutants, which could result in the system failing to respond in the event of a fire.

Gamewell-FCI has received no reports of the firmware failing to operate in the event of a fire. The software upgrade involves the Gamewell-FCI model 600 Series control panel using System Sensor compatible line cards, SmartScan. These panels are components of the Gamewell-FCI 600 Series fire alarm system. They provide the signaling line circuits and display information for the system.

Authorized distributors nationwide sold the equipment from October 2004 through May 2007 for between about $400 and $3,500. Authorized distributors resold and installed the control panels for commercial end users in facilities such as hotels and office buildings. Gamewell-FCI is contacting customers directly and providing a free firmware software upgrade. For more information, contact Gamewell-FCI at (800) 633-1311 or visit http://www.gamewell-fci.com.
