Edition 36


When Four Loops are not enough! - “Syncro” – Analogue Addressable Fire Control Panels – 6 & 8 Loop versions – Available now as standard.

As a direct response to increasing customer interest, we are now offering Syncro 6 & 8 Loop analogue-addressable panels as a standard item and with faster delivery, whereas previously they were specially built to order. Available in all three supported Analogue detector protocols and with 96 zonal leds as standard, these panels can be purchased either with or without in-built printers. They come with two ENS400, 4 amp PSUs and network cards are fitted as standard. These standard products are supplied in Surface Mounting versions only and without the enable keyswitch.

As usual, Syncro Response, Focus and Focus+ repeaters, the modem as well as GUIDE and GUIDE repeater are able to be seamlessly integrated to these Syncro panels and they are able to be networked to other panels in the Syncro family. The internal Syncro bus also allows the local interconnection of the ancillary Input/Output cards - relay, additional sounder and conventional zone modules, as well as the Syncro View Repeater.
