About 1,000 Gamewell-FCI fire alarm panels (ILI-MB-E3 and ILI-S-E3) have been recalled by Gamewell-FCI of Northford, Conn. When configured in a certain way, the panels can become non-responsive and connected detectors in the area can fail to detect and respond to an alarm. This recall is for the ILI-MB-E3 and ILI-S-E3 Gamewell-FCI fire alarm panels in commercial buildings. This issue is limited to a specific configuration of Signaling Line Circuit (SLC) devices. To occur, the SLC must include at least two of the following detectors in any combination: Acclimate, 4-Warn, Photo/CO and iFAAST. The issue would occur only if the detectors are addressed within the same FlashScan polling group. Detectors installed in a different combination are not affected. No incidents or injuries have been reported.
The panels were sold at Authorized distributors from May 2015 through August 2015 for about $800. Consumers should immediately contact the distributor to obtain the free repair, a firmware upgrade. Contact Gamewell-FCI at 800-274-4324 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or online at www.gamewell-fci.com and click on “Safety Recall” for more information.
