Program nodes laid out in order. Docking functionality built in for easy multi-monitor support. Simply drag nodes out of the main window to view SLC devices from multiple nodes side-by-side.
There are lots of ideas in the pipeline already, to make the E3 Simulator even more powerful and user-friendly than it already is.
Guides and instructions available online (coming soon). No need to wait on hold or wait for a callback, just look at our FAQ and guides to get answers to the most commonly asked questions.
Opens .FCI files directly so you can get to work testing any system right from your office, home, work truck, or coffee shop.
I can't believe how well this thing works. I find so many little issues that can be corrected before I ever send out a program.
"The Simulator makes checking your CAMs real easy."
I love the way you can set smokes in alarm and then look at the CAMs and see what is active. I would highly recommend this program for a tool when writing fire alarm programs.
We realized that a recent issue wasn't programming related after testing in the simulator. We were having download issues. The Simulator is more reliable than the system.
"Worth Its Weight In Gold."
Tests it smoothly the first time, if it doesn't work, you can tell if it’s a field thing
Get ahead of the curve, and get issues taken care of before you're under the gun with tight deadlines
Have everything ready to go before the building is ready, then breeze through pretesting and inspections.
Now you can test the I/O that may be overlooked in normal testing. How else can you see every single output affected by an input in a reasonable amount of time?
Finish on time and under budget, because only FCIProgramming.com has the tools to help you be more efficient, and they're so affordable. It just makes sense.
Start out testing your system wherever you are. You no longer have to make a trip to the site, which could be a long trip, just to see if your program is going to work. Test it anywhere, and when you’ve got it just right, then make the trip to the site. Especially if the site is difficult to access. Government facilities, Healthcare, Datacenters, all can have security checkpoints which add to the amount of time it takes to get to work. Additionally, sensitive facilities may only allow you to work during specific time windows when your work will have the minimal impact on their operations. Cut back on all the time involved with E3 Simulator (And out other products, coming soon) by testing before you make the trip, so you can be as effective as possible on site, all while saving time.
Use to train new techs & programmers. Let them edit a program, and get instant feedback about their work. They can work through challenging CAMs, and try them right on their computer, instead of the old, time-consuming way of downloading to a panel, resetting, then hiking all over the building testing devices, only to find out that it didn’t work quite right, and repeating the cycle until it’s correct. That can take so much time, which is bad enough when it’s one person, but what about when there are helpers or additional technicians on site, burning through labor… We can now do all of this virtually, and see what happens in the system.
Show your customers that you take the success of their project seriously. You can demonstrate your commitment to them in part by showing them you have the right tools for the job. Additionally, if you have a very involved customer who wants to see how everything will work before the job is done, you can not only tell them, but you can show them. Some customers may want to see exactly how everything is going to operate (Government, critical facilities, etc.). Not only can you give them a printout of the program, but you can show them that it works. (They’re also welcome to purchase the E3 Simulator if they’re interested)
Ever have those phone calls where you’ve got someone working on-site, and they’re stuck? Open up the program while you’re on the phone with them and re-create what they’re seeing. Maybe they just need to tweak a group number or CAM, or maybe it’s not a programming problem at all. The E3 Simulator can help you isolate whether it is a hardware or a software issue and help you get back on track with fixing the issue.
Design your systems the way you do today.
But now, start testing before you even build the system.
Confidently, knowing the program is really ready to go.
Your customers with how well things come together.
