Loop Explorer V4.5 - Configuration utility
Loop Explorer, the Syncro PC configuration utility continues to develop and set the standard for others to follow. When launched, Loop Explorer brought graphical configuration of fire systems to the wider market for the first time and de-mystified the process of configuring complex fire systems.

Each update to Loop Explorer has included more powerful facilities and features and it remains the benchmark for fire system configuration.

The latest version of Loop Explorer V4.5 has just been released and will be sent to all current registered users within the next few days.

Custom built Syncro panels
The flexibility and versatility of the Syncro system allows even the most complex of fire systems to be realised using standard components. There are occasions however, where special sizes or finishes may be required or integration of system components into one enclosure would be beneficial.
