Kentec wins Innovation Award for Taktis fire panel

Kentec, one of the leading manufacturers of life-critical control systems, has won the Fire Innovation of the Year Award at the second national Safety and Health Excellence Awards for its next generation Taktis 16L analogue addressable fire panel.

The Fire Innovation of the Year Award celebrates products or services that demonstrate genuine innovation and differentiation to other products in the marketplace. Products must have been launched after January 2017 and boast independent fire testing to support performance claims.

Beating ten other nominated fire products and services, the Taktis 16L extends the standard Taktis fire panel to 16 detection loops to provide up to 144 zone indications. It supports more than 2,000 detection devices and can network up to 128 panels, making it ideal for the largest sites such as schools, hospitals and retail applications.

Kevin Swann, managing director at Kentec, stated: “We’re thrilled that Taktis has been recognised with this prestigious award that’s considered an important industry accolade. The Taktis 16L has been built with both the end user and installer in mind. As a truly open protocol panel it offers installers and their customers maximum flexibility in system design, site customisation and in the third party devices that they specify.”

Swann added: “It also protects legacy installations, enabling the extension and replacement of Syncro network systems using the Taktis bridge functionality, not to mention future investment since the panel is future-proofed with a highly impressive roadmap of additional functions, features and integration possibilities.”

This latest win follows on from the company’s Manufacturing Innovation Award at the 2018 Made in the South East Awards.

Kentec’s next generation Taktis fire panel for larger sites takes centre stage at Security Essen

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.”
