Kentec continuing to Invest in People



Kentec Electronics are pleased to announce that we have maintained our Investor in People accreditation after a recent assessment. Kentec have held this accreditation since 2004 and we constantly work hard every year to ensure we maintain our standard.

The Investors in People international standard is about involving all company employees in the successful operation of the business through training and development. The assessment lasted for two days when a cross section of staff were interviewed.

Directors, Managers and Staff are all proud that Kentec have continued to maintain this high standard and will continue to strive to achieve excellence.



A big welcome to the new Finance & Administration Director at Kentec Electronics!


Kentec Electronics are pleased to announce the appointment of Mathew Palmer as Financial and Administration Director heading up the finance, HR and IT departments.

Mathew joined Kentec at the beginning of November and will be responsible for adding value to Kentec as an organisation. Mathew’s role is to think more ahead about the financial strategy of the company and bring in an analytical overview which in the long run will help Kentec maintain and improve the structure we have in place.  This should then ensure the best possible service to our customers well into the future.

Previous to joining Kentec, Mathew was Head of Finance at a sales based company which sold office equipment. He has a degree in Accounting and Finance and has a combined experience in various accounting roles of over 10 years which makes him a great addition to the Kentec team.
Mathew enjoys running and cycling and often takes part in triathlons. He is a real family man, enjoying spending time with his two young sons.

Everyone at Kentec would like to welcome Mat on board and wish him the best of luck with his new role.



Analogue Addressable 1 or 2 loop control panels available with EN, UL and FM approval


The Syncro AS is an EN approved part of the versatile range of open protocol fire alarm control panels. The AS is compatible with existing Syncro panel technology and can be upgraded to a larger system using a network card. Available with one or two detection loops, the Syncro AS is capable of supporting up to 126 Apollo devices, 240 Argus Vega devices or 127 Hochiki devices per loop.

The Elite RS is a UL and FM approved range of open protocol addressable system panels which are compatible with the existing range of Elite fire alarm panel technology. Much like the Syncro AS, the Elite RS is available with one or two detection loops and Hochiki or Apollo devices.

Both panels are ideal for small addressable systems as they are cost effective and easy to set up as well as having the option to become part of a larger system (with the addition of a network card) therefore providing a future proof solution for any installation.

Features of the Syncro AS and the Elite RS include a large LCD screen which can clearly present messages.  People that are unfamiliar with the panel are able to understand the nature of the incident that has occurred due to the clear language used and simple menus that allow further investigation. Both panels have the ability to be semi-flushed with flushing collars, the Elite RS is available in red or grey whereas the Syncro AS is available in signature Kentec Grey.

A range of repeater (annunciator) panels are compatible with the main control panels. The Syncro Matrix and eMatrix provide a simple clear graphical representation of the site where your panels are fitted. Other repeater (annunciator) panels that are compatible include the Syncro View and Focus for the Syncro AS and eView for the Elite RS.

You can also contact your local Business Development Manager who will provide you with information and advise which is the best system for your project.
