Migrating Syncro to Taktis

Company News, Front-of-House/Security, Health, Safety, Security & Environment, EMEA, Supplier News
Life safety systems control manufacturer Kentec Electronics has unveiled a unique solution for migrating Syncro panel networks to the latest Taktis technology.


New Syncro/Taktis bridge functionality allows customers to upgrade their existing networks from legacy Syncro fire panels to the scalable Taktis control panel, and even allows for upgrades to be undertaken on a panel-by-panel basis to reduce capital expenditure and minimising system downtime.


Taktis Vision repeaters can also be installed on a Syncro network using the bridge feature to add a touch-screen interface that delivers information on the status of the fire alarm system to single or multiple locations.


Kevin Swann, Kentec Electronics managing director, says the company is committed to developing solutions that make the lives of customers easier:


"We understand that budgets do not always allow our customers to upgrade their systems all in one go. This bridge capability means our customers can plan and develop their fire system in line with their fire safety requirements to the latest product range, without causing budgetary difficulties. Importantly this can be done with minimal disruption to the occupants with less cost, stress and risk for all involved.


"It is our belief that this provides a unique opportunity within the fire industry, enabling a compatible path to complete system upgrade."


"Additionally, because the Syncro/Taktis bridge is a firmware feature, additional hardware is not required and simplifies installation and upgrades".
