International Firex

This years International Firex show, which took place at the NEC in the middle of May, was another resounding success for Kentec Electronics. We were showing our new and extended range of products, including our new VES range of UL & FM approved fire products. For those of you that were unable to attend, the following is a brief overview of each product.

Syncro XT+ - The Syncro XT+ is the latest in the “XT” family of dedicated extinguishant releasing products from Kentec. The Syncro XT+ follows the Sigma XT+ our conventional multi-zone, multi-area releasing panel which we introduced last year. The Syncro XT+ will be available with up to 2 analogue detection loops and 4 extinguishing areas as standard. Designed to fully comply with EN12094 part 1, we plan to have this new product range third-party tested and certified to this standard before the end of this year.

Sigma Matrix – Hot on the heels of the highly successful Syncro Matrix graphical mimic panel the Sigma Matrix adds another dimension to graphical annunciation. Like Syncro Matrix the Sigma version offers incredible flexibility and value when it comes to cost of ownership. The Sigma Matrix is designed to be used with conventional fire systems or analogue addressable systems other than our Syncro and Syncro AS range. LEDs on the Sigma Matrix can be operated from either switched negative, switched positive or volt free contacts and it can be supplied with or without a power supply.

Syncro Ident – A new addition to the “Syncro” family the Syncro Ident is a programmable LED repeater panel. The Ident sits on the Syncro RS485 databus and can be used with any Syncro or Syncro AS panel. Syncro Ident has slip-in labels to allow custom legends to be added. The Ident is particularly useful for Zonal LED repeaters, plant control indications, disabled refuge indications, damper status indications, etc.

Syncro Power – Two new power supplies that comply with EN54-4 Amendment 2. A 5.25A and a 9.25A version are available. These have the same fixing centres as our well proven S400 and are available in boxed versions to suit either our M3 or Syncro enclosures. Both units have 24V regulated outputs.

VES Fire Detection Systems – To compliment and extend the range of VES Fire Detection Systems products we have added the eLAN RS and the eLITE RS, in either one or two loop variants, with all the functionality of the existing eLAN and eLITE products. These are currently undergoing UL listing. Also displayed were the VES Voice Alert voice evacuation system the VES accessory enclosure and the VES Doc Box.

More Marine Approvals for Syncro AS – Our Syncro ASM one or two loop marine approved fire control panel is now Type Approved to Marine Classification requirements by 6 Marine Classification bodies.
