Drive Your Business Forward with the MXL to XLS Migration Solution


Introduction of mxl to xls migration

Introduction of MXL to XLS migration

  • Siemens has released for sale the MXL to FireFinder XLS total migration solution with product scheduled to be on the shelf no later than February 1, 2012.


Topics

Topics

  • Why migrate existing installations?

  • Advantages of Siemens MXL to XLS migration solution

  • What MXL installations should be targeted for migration?

  • Sales and marketing resources

  • Product demonstration


Why start the rollout now

Why start the rollout now?

  • Customer awareness of the ability to migrate

  • Protection of your installed base

  • Sales cycle can take up to 18 months

  • Customer needs time to plan for upgrade

  • Must align with customer budget cycle / funding ability


Why migrating mxl systems is a good business opportunity

Why migrating MXL systems is a good business opportunity

  • It is estimated that over 70,000 MXL systems have been sold since MXL was introduced in 1992

  • Early installed systems are prime candidates for migration

  • Minimizes competition via cost and time effective solution

  • Profitable business and a win-win solution (sales outlet and end user)


How do you convince a customer to modernize a system

How do you convince a customer to modernize a system?

  • The components used in legacy fire alarm systems become difficult to secure, resulting in higher maintenance costs

    • Replacement parts become more expensive or unobtainable

    • Fire alarm system down for long periods of time

  • Siemens provides a cost effective migration solution to modernize the fire alarm system in phases while staying within the customer’s budget

  • FireFinder XLS uses more advanced technology

  • FireFinder XLS is an enabler for future technology


Features of the mxl to xls migration solution

Features of the MXL to XLS migration solution

A comprehensive smooth migration solution

  • MXL Line Card (MLC) that allows XLS to communicate to existing ALD devices

  • Enclosure adapters that allow XLS components to fit into existing MXL and MXL-IQ backboxes MSE-2, MSE-2R, MME-3, MME-3R, MBR-2, MLE-6, MLE-6R, MSE-3M, MSE-3MR, MSE-3L, MSE-3LR

  • Enclosure adapters that allow SSD to fit into remote annunciator backboxes RCC-1, RCC-3, RCC-3R, RCC-1F, RCC-3F, RCC-3FR

  • Ability to import MXL device custom message database into XLS programming tool which reduces programming time


Advantages

Advantages

  • Competitive cost advantage for replacement of installed MXL systems due to ability to keep existing field devices and wiring

  • Less downtime for fire alarm system during migration

  • Ability to use existing backbox which eliminates an additional cut-out in the wall

  • Reduced programming time, reduces labor costs

  • Gets the customer’s solution accomplished faster than any competitor’s approach

  • Advanced system with improved response time that is easier to maintain


Mxl configurations to target

MXL configurations to target

  • Single node MXL

  • MXL-IQs without high levelVESDA interface

  • Single node MXL with transponders

  • Single node MXLV voicewith transponders

  • Networked MXLs

    • MXL to XLS interpanel logic is not supported (proper planning is required)


Mxl with xlds

MXL with XLDs

  • XLD Loops are required to be replaced with DLCs and H series devices

  • Please consult Florham Park to ensure DLC and MLC circuits can be run in the same conduit

    • DLC could cause noise on the MLC circuit with distances over 2000 ft when unshielded, untwisted wire is used!


Mxl configurations to not target at this time

MXL configurations to not target at this time

  • MXL-IQs with high level VESDA interface

Typical migration scenarios

Typical migration scenarios


Reuse of wire and other considerations

Reuse of wire and other considerations

  • Consult XLS Wiring Compatibility Guide P/N 315-034786 (found on tech support website) to ensure existing wiring can be reused

  • Shielded analog audio riser cannot be used for DNET communication between DAC-NETs

  • DNET communication requires 2 pairs of wire

  • XLS(V) NAC end of line (EOL) resistor values are different than MXL(V)

  • MXL nodes with over 2500 addressable points need to converted to networked XLSs
