The CYG6 Cygnus base panel has been developed as the control panel, ideal for smaller construction sites. It is an optional element into the Cygnus system, and is used to capture data. This wireless alarm panel can be used in conjunction with other Cygnus control panels but has reduced networking capability and can support up to 32 devices. It has been slightly reduced in size and weight. The base panel is mains powered but has its own internal rechargeable battery power source, which when fully charged, will last seven days. The panel has other features including an evacuate site function which can be used in case of emergency. The base panel has limited software and functionality compared with the main Cygnus control panel and cannot be upgraded.
