Gamewell-FCI Recalls 3,000 Fire Alarm Control Panels

Gamewell-FCI by Honeywell, a Northford, Conn.-based maker of fire control instruments, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, has announced a voluntary recall of approximately 3,000 Gamewell-FCI 7100 Series fire alarm control panels. The panels provide control, display, and annunciation information.

Gamewell-FCI reports that the sounder on the panel's main circuit board can fail to alert when there is a malfunction. No injuries or incidents have been reported.

The units were manufactured in the United States and were sold nationwide by authorized distributors to commercial end users in facilities such as hotels and office buildings from May 2007 through November 2007 for between $900 and $1,800. The recalled series includes the following model serial numbers and descriptions:

  • 1100-1312 BK-7100-2D Basic Systems Kit, With DACT, 2 SLC
  • 1100-1314 BK-7100-2D-240V Basic Systems Kit, w/DACT, 2 SLC, 240 VAC
