Kentec is showcasing its life-critical control systems at Security Essen 2018*, with the company’s next generation Taktis 16-loop analogue addressable fire panel taking centre stage on Stand A28 from 25-28 September.
The Taktis 16L extends the current Taktis fire panel to provide up to 144 zone indications. It supports more than 2,000 detection devices and can network anything up to 128 panels, making this solution ideal for larger end user sites such as schools, hospitals, multi-site retail/supermarkets, critical infrastructure and major commercial and industrial facilities.
Also on Stand A28 and launched this year will be Kentec’s Ockular software solution, giving building managers complete control over fire detection and monitoring. It enables the creation of a 2D site map of any location or building to monitor fire safety and detection, and automatically switches to an area where a fire device has been activated to allow immediate viewing and investigation of an event.
Visitors will also see how Vizulinx, a sophisticated yet easy-to-use fire alarm management solution, enables building managers and service providers to monitor and control fire systems remotely. It passes fire system events via e-mail, SMS, Modbus and BACnet message format using a standard IP connection.
Kevin Swann, managing director of Kentec, commented: “We’re looking forward to demonstrating to visitors how Kentec’s products have been conceived, designed and manufactured with both the end user and installer in mind. Taktis 16L takes us to an exciting new era where the panel can be used to protect the very largest sites and infrastructures, while Vizulinx and Ockular have been developed to ensure that fire detection management is highly efficient, practical and effective.”
From the extinguishing side, Kentec’s robust and easy-to-install Sigma XT and Syncro XT ranges will be on display.
