Kentec rapid set-up Alarmsense EN54 fire panels


Kentec has launched its new range of Alarmsense compatible fire alarm control and indicating panels approved and certified to EN54 parts 2 and 4. Kentec’s Sigma CP-A Alarmsense compatible 2, 4 and 8 zone fire alarm control and indicating panels are designed to deliver significant time and cost savings, compared with standard four-wire conventional systems. An Alarmsense installation can result in a 20-25% reduction in set-up time compared with a standard four-wire conventional system, because all devices in a given zone can be wired to the same pair of cables.

The Alarmsense range allows Apollo Alarmsense devices, including smoke and heat detectors, call points, base sounders, base sounder/beacons and relay units, to be wired to the same pair of cables, with rapid system configuration for common, zonal or two-stage alarm by simply setting one of the panels configuration options. False alarm management is also very efficient, with alarm verification via the general and local alarm facility on Alarmsense sounders and beacons, which is particularly useful in Houses of Multiple Occupation (HMO) such as student accommodation or nursing homes. All control panels have an integral, mains powered battery charger and power supply compliant with the requirements of BS EN54-4.
