New 4-way Relay Unit for Fire Extinguishing Systems

Health, Safety & Environment, Health, Safety, Security & Environment, EMEA
Life-critical control systems manufacturer Kentec has launched a 4-Way Relay Unit for conventional as well as addressable extinguishing systems that enables key maintenance tasks to be undertaken without compromising safety.


The 4-Way Relay Unit enables third party systems (e.g HVAC, security, access control etc) connected to the fire alarm panel to be isolated so that repairs and maintenance can be completed without compromising the integrity of the overall installation. Volt-free contacts mean voltages are kept completely separate, increasing overall system safety.


It features four pairs of up to 125VDC at 5AMPs or 250AC at 10AMPs rated relay contacts, housed in a robust sheet steel enclosure that can be operated using switch negative signals from up to four control panels. Isolated switches and status LEDs are provided for each relay.


Kevin Swann, Managing Director at Kentec, says the 4-Way Relay Unit is an important addition to Kentec’s portfolio of high-quality and reliable safety control systems: "The 4-Way Relay Unit enables easy isolation for installers and engineers, and with relays each up to 10AMPs it has the capacity to isolate high power equipment. It is the ideal demarcation point for third party equipment.”
