Spotlight on Software: Lite-Configurator Now Supports SWIFT™ Wireless

Lite-Configurator is an easy to use FREE program that allows you to configure a bill of materials for Fire-Lite’s addressable and conventional control panels. The Lite-Configurator tool Version 2.6.2 has been updated to include the new SWIFT™ Wireless addressable devices. In addition to SWIFT™ Wireless support, we have improved the support for low frequency by updating the B200SR-LF Low Frequency Sounder Base and the new ISO-6 Six Fault Isolator Module.

With the Lite-Configurator tool, you can:

  • Create a bill of material for addressable and conventional control panels
  • Select and edit parts from the parts catalog
  • Generate a formatted report with a customized header from your bill of materials
  • Export your bill of materials to MS Excel or MS Access
  • Create a full set of battery calculations based on your configuration
  • Print data sheets from the Bill of Materials screen.

Spotlight on Software: Lite-Configurator

Fire-Lite’s Lite-Configurator software is a multi-faceted tool created to help you work smarter and faster!

  • Lite-Configurator can recommend a panel and help with configurations based on your requirements (Addressable, Conventional, Suppression, or Voice) using the Panel Selection Wizard.
  • As you select your devices, detectors, modules, etc…, the software will build a running Bill of Materials (BOM).
  • As you add the A\V devices, you will need to specify the Candela rating for Strobes and Wattage for Speakers. Lite-Configurator will keep a running total of panel\circuit usage, along with the current draw for each device. The tool will also prevent you from overloading a circuit by displaying the warning below.

When the configuration is complete you can generate a Bill of Materials (BOM) complete with links to individual data sheets and battery calculations. The BOM could be used in your submittal or taken to your preferred security dealer so you get everything needed to complete the project.

If you have any questions on this software or any other tool offered by Fire-Lite Alarms, our Technical Service Department is available 8 am to 7 pm Eastern to help.
