Integration-friendly Gas Suppression System

Company News, Health, Safety, Security & Environment, EMEA, Supplier News
Life-critical control systems manufacturer Kentec has launched Elite XT+, a multi-addressable extinguishant control panel designed for integration into wider fire safety solutions.


Elite XT+ features intelligent functionality for easy installation, operation and management, and manages alarms as well as activation of gas suppression systems via a RS45 communication channel which removes the need for a separate detection system for gas suppression. The unit is also equipped with a 5.25 A power supply (120 VAC or 240 VAC).


The panel’s multi-area releasing control units contain one or two releasing modules via the master fire alarm panel. Each module can accommodate a separate hazard, defined by two specific zones. This means that gas suppression need only be activated within the required area, therefore limiting the potential damage and disruption to the overall site.


Kentec’s configuration software, Loop Explorer 2, provides a simple programming interface for end-users to configure the inputs and outputs for each releasing module.


Other features for each area include first and second stage dual releasing outputs; first and second stage NAC outputs; and first and second stage volt-free changeover relays. Volt-free relays signal to other systems that gas has been released, and also fault volt-free relays alert other systems to any faults and their location.


Kevin Swann, Kentec managing director, says:

"We are now able to integrate multiple fire safety, security and building management systems with relative ease, and it is our duty as an industry to capitalise on these capabilities.


"The Elite XT+’s interoperability and intelligent functionality have been meticulously designed to accommodate a wide range of fire-safety scenarios, providing user convenience and the very highest standards of safety.


"It is also one of the first products of its kind to be listed to UL864 10th Edition Standard for Control Units and Accessories for Fire Alarm Systems."
