Kentec Showcases Latest UL-Approved Taktis Fire Panel at Intersec 15 Nov 2018
(INTERSEC – Stand 4-A24) Kentec, a leading life safety control systems manufacturer, is exhibiting its UL-approved, next generation Taktis UL 16 loop analogue addressable fire panel at Intersec 2019, alongside a suite of extinguishant panels and accessories designed to make customers lives easier.
The Taktis UL 16L extends the current Taktis UL fire panel 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 data-centres, schools, hospitals, multi-site retail/supermarkets, critical infrastructure and major commercial and industrial facilities. It has been approved by UL to UL-864 10th edition.
Exhibited for the first time is the Fire-Cryer Plus voice sounder and visual indicator. An accessory to the Sigma XT, Sigma XT+ and Syncro XT+ extinguishing control panels, that provides clear and concise messaging to building occupants as an alternative to electronic sounder/bells and strobes. System specific messages are provided including 1st stage alarm, 2nd stage alarm, gas release imminent, gas release confirmation, as well as hold button activation.
Also on Kentec’s stand is the Ockular software solution, giving building managers complete control over fire detection and monitoring. It enables the creation of a 2D site map of any site 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 fire systems remotely while also being able to integrate with other equipment such as BMS (Building Management Systems). It passes fire system events via e-mail and SMS message format using a standard IP connection. Integration with other systems is achievable via Modbus or BacNET protocols.
Kevin Swann, Managing Director of Kentec, says Intersec will be a fantastic opportunity to showcase how its systems are helping to protect sites from a wide variety of sectors in the Middle East and globally:
“With the Taktis UL 16L, our panels have the capability to protect the very largest sites and infrastructures, and already have an enviable global reputation,” he says. “Our suite of complementary products, including Fire-Cryer, Vizulinx and Ockular demonstrate that the customer is at the centre of everything we do – it is our job to ensure the utmost in fire safety is made as efficient, practical and effective as possible for our customers.”
Kentec’s robust and easy-to-install Sigma A-XT, Sigma XT and Syncro XT+ ranges will be on display at the show, demonstrating the company’s long-established extinguishing capabilities.
The show takes place on the 20-22 January 2019 in Dubai, and attracts more than 1,000 exhibitors from well over 50 countries, as well as over 25,000 trade visitors.
