Kentec at Intersec 2019

Kentec, the fire and life safety control systems manufacturer, is exhibiting its UL-approved, Taktis UL 16 loop analogue addressable fire panel, picgtured, at the Intersec 2019 show. Also on display at the January 20 to 22 exhibition will be its extinguishant panels and accessories.

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 suitable the makers say for large sites such as data centres, schools, hospitals, supermarkets, critical infrastructure and major commercial and industrial sites. 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 messaging to building occupants as an alternative to electronic sounder/bells and strobes. System specific messages are provided including first stage alarm, second stage alarm, gas release imminent and gas release confirmation, as well as hold button activation.

Also on the stand is the Ockular software, providing building managers 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 viewing and investigation of an event. Vizulinx offers fire alarm management, enabling 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: “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.”

The Dubai shows attracts more than 1,000 exhibitors from over 50 countries, plus 25,000 trade visitors. Visit
