Johnson Controls color ES Touch Screen Display is an innovative and improved upgrade to Simplex 4100ES and 4010ES fire alarm control units
Larger screen and enhanced touch capabilities provide an enhanced experience for users, including emergency responders.
MILWAUKEE (September 22, 2020) - Johnson Controls, a global leader for smart and sustainable buildings, has announced the release of the new color ES Touch Screen Display (ES TSD), the latest addition to its expansive fire and life safety product portfolio. A modernized upgrade to the company's Simplex 4100ES and 4010ES fire alarm control units, the ES TSD offers an intuitive operational experience for all users. With a large touch screen, enhanced graphics, and support for a wide range of languages, the ES TSD provides building owners with clear, descriptive and real-time insight into their facilities' and their occupants' safety.
'It was important that the new touch screen be easy to use, regardless of a user's training or background,' said Todd Jackson, vice president of owner sales, Fire Protection Solutions & Services North America at Johnson Controls. 'The display is incredibly intuitive, much like a tablet, and provides clear and concise information. When an alarm sounds, the user can instantly see where the problem is to take immediate corrective actions. From building owners monitoring their facility, to facility managers identifying the source of a false alarm, to a firefighter responding to an emergency, this technology is accessible to anyone.'

Modeled after a smart phone's user experience, the 8-inch screen delivers a wider and more detailed variety of information. The TSD is designed for easy usage by first responders, with enhanced touch capabilities that work with gloves as well as a hard button for alarm silencing. The screen is able to display up to 8 Zones of Alarm without scrolling, which helps convey the most information possible and provides compliance with ULC Standard S527 requirements.
Installation is designed to be efficient and fast, with an Ethernet interface that allows almost instantaneous downloads of system programming and updates. For off-site building management, remote displays can be connected over Ethernet or via a USB port. Owners of the ES TSD's predecessor, the InfoAlarm, can seamlessly and cost-effectively upgrade to the new product without replacing current control units.
'This product introduction is part of our ongoing pledge to constantly innovate and improve for our customers,' said Jackson. 'Our customers choose and rely on Johnson Controls to protect what matters most, and we don't take that lightly, especially during such uncertain times. By expanding our portfolio with solutions like the color ES TSD, our customers are empowered to provide the most comprehensive fire safety strategy possible to keep their facilities, occupants and assets safe.'
