takes a back seat
Kentec K3000 range of conventional fire panels
have provided reliable and flexible service
for more years than many of us would care
to recall and have become well known throughout
the fire industry as easy to use and "bullet
K3000 equipment appears in many guises from
simple, 2 zone conventional fire alarm and
extinguishant panels to very large, custom
engineered equipment with hundreds of detection
zones and it is used worldwide.
Times and standards change and the days are
now numbered for the K3000 range. Since the
introduction of the EN54 compliant Sigma 2
range in 2003 (soon to be Sigma CP), it has
largely replaced 2, 4 and 8 zone K3000 panel
sales and has proven to be just as reliable
and even more flexible.
Those who are familiar with the 1st June 2005
- 31st December 2005 price list <download
will have noticed that K3000 panels from 2
to 8 zones are no longer listed. This is a
deliberate attempt to persuade customers to
convert to our EN54 compliant range of re-styled
Sigma CP control panels and Sigma CP-R repeaters.
The Sigma CP range is available as standard,
conventional or 2-wire versions for use on
installations where fitting detectors, calls
points and sounders to the same pair of cables
would provide reduced installation costs.
K3000 panels with 12 zones and above will
still be available for the time being but
these will also be replaced with EN54 compliant
versions in the coming months.
With thousands of K3000 control panels in
service we shall of course support the equipment
and spares will remain available for many
years to come.
