An Overview of Hochiki's Analogue Addressable Fire Detection Range
Hochiki’s world-leading ESP Addressable range of Sensors delivers everything you’d expect, and quite a bit more.
There are four models in the main sensor range offering optical smoke detection, heat detection, multi-criteria detection (smoke and heat) and multi-criteria with CO detection.
All models require just one, electronics-free mounting base, making ordering, stock-holding and installation simple and efficient. The sensors are electronically addressed in seconds using a hand-held programmer via Hochiki’s ultra-reliable ESP protocol, so no fiddly mechanical addressing on site.
Subtle case markings identify which model is installed at a glance and all models come in a choice of white, ivory or black casings to perfectly blend in with any project.
The ESP open protocol is supported by all leading fire panel manufacturers for complete flexibility for the installer when it comes to panel choice and comes with features such as extended addressing, sub-addressing, adjustable sensor sensitivity and drift compensation.
Hochiki’s world-leading CHQ Addressable range of Input/Output Modules delivers everything you’d expect, and quite a bit more. There are nine models in the main Hochiki “Smart-Fix” boxed module range, each providing the system designer with a different function and application.
The majority are loop-powered, and between the various models can provide: monitored inputs, change-over relays, fully monitored sounder circuits, conventional zones, mA monitoring inputs, monitored I.S. sounder circuits or mains-rated relays.
With control panel compatibility, individual module channels can even be independently addressed and controlled and monitored, adding a further level of flexibility.
• Loop Powered
• Single Loop Address – with sub-addressable channels
• Also available as DIN enclosures
• Integral SCI
• Easy to install
• LPCB Approved
• ESP Protocol compatible

Our extensive range of addressable alarm devices includes beacons, wall sounders, base sounders, combination sounder/beacons and a sub-range of EN54-23 approved VADs (Visual Alarm Devices).
Our sounders are all loop-powered and equipped with 51 EN54-approved tones with a wide range of sound levels and light outputs for any application.
Thanks to our innovative ESP Protocol, base sounders and base sounder beacons will automatically adopt an address based on the attached sensor address (the sensor address plus 127) saving time at install.
Depending on control panel compatibility, it's possible to operate and control the sound and light outputs of the base sounder beacons independently, adding extra flexibility when it comes to system design and performance.
• Loop Powered
• Separate control over sounmd and light
• Al devices approved to EN54
• Wide range including EN54-23 approved VADs
• Base Sounders available with integrated SCIs
• ESP Protocol compatible

False Alarm Reduction
Driven with world proven, open protocol system. The high performance chamber allows for adjustable sensitivity settings.
Compliant to world recognised standards such as LPCB and VdS.
The ESP system offers a wide range of products suitable for any application.
The usable address range (1 to 127) can be extended from 128 to 254 for certain alarm devices, minimising costs.
Accommodates up to 8 inputs and 8 outputs at each address. Each sub-address can be used within the cause and effects to give greater system flexibility.
ESP uses an Interrupt System to guarantee rapid responses from any device. The time lapse between operation of a call point and indication of fire on the system is typically less than 1.5 seconds.
ESP protocol minimises the possibility of data corruption using a proven combination of algorithms and applies parity and checksum principles to every packet of data.
Advanced controls within the ESP products include variable volumes and tones that allow systems to be tailored to achieve optimum performance.
Each ESP device has a unique type code. This allows the system to recognise what device type the alarm has been generated from. The ESP protocol can support 240 different type codes.
The ESP range is adaptable to a broad range of environments and applications. From small to very large areas, the range can be utilised to fit almost any particular environment. Below are some examples of where the ESPintelligent range is particularly effective:
