n.FORM™ Rack Mounted Headend Enclosure

Lencore's n.FORM Rack Mounted Headend simplifies system design. The headend is pre-wired with standard system functionality such as pre-recorded messaging, text-to-speech, and variable audio inputs. This standardized system runs on an open-protocol platform which makes integration with third party systems simple, easy and effective.


The Headend Unit meets the UL 2572 standard to be part of a mass notification system and also is accepted to interface with a fire alarm control panel (FACP). n.FORM has the ability to reinforce the fire alarm annunciation, shutdown the masking in the event of an emergency, and deliver non-fire emergency notifications

The Headend Rack Mounted Unit can be used in conjunction with the n.FORM Operating Platform Rack Unit to sit in an IT, MDF or IDF closet. Features Include:

  • Local and Global MPI
  • Text to speech
  • Pre-recorded messages
  • All features of the MPI-6
  • 3 mic pre-amps
  • Zone control relays for aux devices
  • External serial port for 3rd party device interface
  • On board i.LON SmartServer
  • Cloud server connection
