Notification (device) information data file

This data file is used to store information about Notification (NAC) Devices. User may at any time add new device blocks. There must be a separate sheet for each notification style as found in 'FSC_Project->Project->Notification Style' value. Example of sheet names - Red, White, Red-English, Red-Spanish, Red-BlueLens, Red-WhiteLens, etc.

The original notification files (by manufacturer) are typically stored in the \DATA folder. However a copy of the data file may be saved in a specific project folder, if unique part numbers are required for that specific project.

In the Current Draw cells, there must be 1 value for each candela value or 1 value for each Audible Characteristic.
The Candela, Current Draw and Watt cells must be formatted as text with values separated by commas

Note - new sheets, rows and columns may be added when new features are added to FireSysCAD

Information about coloring in the data file -

Yellow these cells have text used by the FireSysCAD software and may NOT be changed
The Abbreviation and Block name MUST match the 'FSC_Equipment->Block values'
Green these cells are for information purposes only
Light Blue these cells show devices that are not available by this Notification manufacturer
