IFSEC – Kentec turns up the power at IFSEC 2010

If you attended IFSEC in Birmingham, UK last month, you will have seen the launch of five powerful new additions to our already extensive product range, which are the result of our current, ambitious R&D programme.

If you were not able to join us at IFSEC we are giving you a chance to catch up and discover our new additions which include Kentec’s new AlarmSense® compatible Sigma CP-A 2, 4 and 8 zone fire alarm control and indicating panels, utilizing this popular cost-saving two-wire technology.

We also previewed our new OpenConnect BMS Communications Interface for easy-to-configure integration of Apollo Syncro or Syncro AS networks to Building Management Systems via a wide range of protocols.

On display were a new range of illuminated Warning Signs featuring high intensity LED indicators; These can be customised to meet your message requirements.

Also shown were our new audible-visual alarm-status Indicator Units, and the new S408 Power Supply Units for continuous power or battery charging.

These products herald a range of significant new Kentec products being launched in 2010 that will further add to the development of the UK's most comprehensive fire detection and extinguishing control panel range.
