Bosch Security Recalls Fire Control Panels Due to Fire Alarm Failure
Bosch Security Systems is recalling approximately 2,000 Bosch GV4 fire alarm control panels. The notification appliance circuit module can cause the panels to fail to activate an audible or visual alarm in the event of a fire.
This recall involves G-series Fire Alarm Control Panels that are professionally installed and have model numbers that end in GV4 and use D192G Notification Appliance Circuit (NAC) modules. The NAC module monitors the circuit connections and signals when alarms are not operational. The Bosch name, logo and model number D9412GV4, D7412GV4 or D7212GV4 are printed on the unit.
The recalled fire alarm control panels were sold through authorized distributers and certified professional installers nationwide from January 2012 to December 2012.
Consumers who have a recalled GV4 control panel with a D192G NAC module should contact Bosch or their certified professional installer for a free repair. Bosch has contacted their distributers and installers and sent installers a service bulletin telling them how to correct the problem.
