Please update your contacts of this change.

Syncro Enclosure options

Did you know the Syncro  range has a variety of different enclosure options?

The Syncro Multi Loop version Analogue Addressable Fire Control Panel range offers a powerful and scalable solution to suit many Fire System projects.

With well proven and mature software at its heart, the Syncro range benefits from many years of development and refinement to provide a fire control panel range of outstanding robustness, versatility and flexibility.

Syncro Fire Panels support the protocols and devices from the Apollo (S90/XP95/Discovery), Hochiki ESP and Argus Vega ranges and are capable of providing up to 400mA per loop of quiescent/alarm load over the 2 or 4 loop panel options available.

With these power requirements, enclosure and battery size considerations are paramount at design stage.

Syncro Fire panels are not only available in a standard size enclosure 500w x 355h x 117d (mm) allowing fitment within the enclosure of the generic 12Ah 12volt battery size but are also available in a larger enclosure size 500w x 460h x 190d (mm) with space for either 17Ah 12 volt of 26Ah 12v battery sets. The Syncro Fire Panel EN54-4 approved 5.25 amp power supply unit being more than enough to cope with the requirements of a fully loaded panel and recharging up to 26Ah battery sets within the specified British Standard time.

Or for systems requiring the size of the standard panel with the space for batteries of a larger capacity we have a full range of attractively designed and installer friendly Battery Enclosures in styles that match our panel ranges.
