Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding fire alarm control panels, part of AutoCAD: Creating Sprinkler and Fire-Alarm Systems.
- [Man] Fire alarm systems don't work well…without control panels.…What this video illustrates is…where to find fire alarm control panels.…We're gonna add one to the wall,…and we're gonna tag it.…Then we'll investigate the properties…of the device.…To get started, let's jump into AutoCAD MEP,…and our control drawing.…Let's switch our display configuration…to our fire alarm configuration.…And with that it turns on all of our ceilings,…and looks a little different.…
What I want to do is let's come into…the electrical room right here.…Let's go to the equipment tab,…let's click on electrical equipment.…Under electrical, let's come down to control panel,…and drill into that.…Again, you can choose between a couple different ones.…I'm gonna grab the one with a keypads operator.…I'm gonna click into my drawing.…I'm gonna shift, right click.…And I'm gonna snap it to nearest.…
I'm gonna pick a point right here.…I'm gonna go at 90 degrees up the wall.…I'm gonna pick that point.…Now I'm gonna hit escape a couple times.…The next thing I want to do is set the elevation.…
