Protecting the London Underground

London Underground
London Underground Limited (LUL) is using fire panels from Kentec to protect its network of Signal Equipment Rooms (SER) from the risk of fire.

 

Specified and installed by DPJ Fire and Security, the Syncro AS 2 Loop Panels were chosen because of their reliability, proven performance capabilities and ability to meet the stringent requirements laid down by LUL.

 

Each SER is a standalone building located nearby an underground station, consisting of rooms that house equipment for the control of driverless tube trains. The Syncro AS 2 Loop Panel features onboard relays that are used to send fault and fire signals to the local station control as the individual sites are unmanned.

 

The multi-protocol panel can be networked to become part of a larger system as required and provides the programming power and connectivity normally associated with much larger systems.

 

Stuart Williams, Senior Project Manager with DPJ Fire and Security, says:

"We have worked with LUL on more than ten SER projects, and the highest levels of safety, reliability and user-friendly functionality are required.

 

"The panel provides control of up to four 230v AC or 24V DC motorised dampers and with a built-in interface all pre-wired, installation is very straightforward."

 

Kevin Swann, Kentec managing director, adds:

"A large graphical interface and ergonomic buttons provide clear and flexible controls, with high reliability and integrity. All systems are manufactured in our UK-based manufacturing facility and designed to make the lives of our customer easier and more convenient.

 

"Syncro AS is used around the world and has a long future as a leading 1-2 loop open protocol panel approved and certified to EN54, EN12094, available in UL, FM, NFPA and marine classifications."
