Syncro AS in larger enclosure

Syncro AS analogue addressable fire control panels are now available in larger enclosures with Apollo, Argus Vega or Hochiki ESP communication protocols.
The larger, M3 enclosures are (385W x 520H x 110D), 210mm taller and 20mm deeper than the standard M2 enclosures.
An additional equipment plate can be fitted to allow a thermal event/record, printer and/or additional controls and indications to be fitted.
The additional space in these enclosures also allows other ancillary equipment such as I/O boards or a larger power supply and batteries to be fitted for applications requiring extended battery standby.
For details of all standard Syncro AS control panels available in the M3 size enclosure see section 1 of our 2006 - 2007 price guide.

K2.01/Solo phase out

With the advent of 2007, we have now ceased manufacturing of the K2.01 extinguishant release unit and our Solo-2 Analogue-addressable panel, although we will maintain supplies of spare parts for as long as we can.

As advised last year, both of these well-accepted products have now been superseded by EN compliant equivalents: The K2.01 has been replaced by the Sigma XT and the Solo 2 is replaced by the Syncro AS both of which are in full production.
If you require any further information on these please use the links below or contact our Sales Department.

Kentec Returns & Repairs Policy

From 1st July 2006, all items manufactured by Kentec Electronics are covered by a 3-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. This warranty period starts from the date of delivery of the goods.

In the event of a failure in the product within the warranty period, replacement sub-assemblies will be provided under the Kentec Service Replacement Item (SRI) scheme.
Initially the diagnosis of any problem sub-assemblies is determined (typically by telephone technical support between the site engineer and the Kentec technical support engineers). A written request (fax or e-mail) is then required, giving details of the panel order number, required items and delivery address. The replacement parts are then shipped for next day delivery, subject to availability.
The original items should be returned to Kentec Electronics within 14 days of delivery and any items not returned within 28 days will be invoiced.

Items that fail outside the warranty period maybe returned to our Customer Service Department for evaluation, quotation and repair. Repairs are subject to component availability and may not be possible if components are no longer available or if there is excessive mechanical damage to the sub-assemblies.

1) The warranty agreement is between Kentec Electronics and our customer (the Buyer) only and is not transferable.
2) Items supplied before 1st July 2006 are covered by a 12-month warranty.

Full details of Warranties and Liabilities are given in Clause 8 of the current Terms & Conditions of sale in section 25 of the price list.
