FAELSAFE (SMC) LTD Tech’ed up to Taktis

Taktis® is Kentec’s most powerful and sophisticated analogue addressable fire panel. Intelligent and technically robust, it has enhanced integration and networking capabilities to meet the current and future needs of small to larger buildings and installations.

Initially configured as a fire detection and alarm system, the flexibility of Taktis is such that it can be re-configured to realise many other control and indication applications, with direct integration into intelligent buildings.

Available in four and eight slot variants, Taktis fire control panel ranges from two to 16 detection loops. Taktis is approved for networks of up to 32 panels (approval for networking of up to 127 panels pending), making it ideal for the largest sites including schools, hospitals, multi-site retail/supermarkets, critical infrastructure and major commercial and industrial facilities.

A range of protocols are supported to give installers and end-users maximum choice in their systems’ design, and the scalable nature of the product provides the highest level of future-proofing and networking possibilities. The modular nature of Taktis allows all field wiring to be connected to a passive mother-board enabling addition, re-configuration or replacement of all electronic hardware without the need to disconnect any field wiring.

This modularity also allows each panel to be customised with addressable loop detection circuits, conventional detection circuits, relay cards, additional sounder outputs or programmable I/O modules as required.

As a truly open protocol panel it offers installers and their customers maximum flexibility in systems’ design, site-customisation and the third-party devices that they use. Not only does Taktis provide solutions to the most technically challenging applications in life safety, it will also deliver added value and market advantage.
