‘Built on the latest generation of digital fire detection technology’

Published:  12 February, 2015

Tyco and ADT’s new future-proof fire detection panel will result in a reduction of lifetime costs.

The Zettler Profile is a new way of interfacing and managing all aspects of the MZX Technology digital addressable system. It is an evolution of the MZX Generation 6 Technology, said Peter Lackey, Fire Product Marketing Manager at ADT Fire & Security, and its focus is on ease of installation, configuration and service, which he believes will result in a reduction in lifetime cost.

‘The system is easy to install, configure and service; all of which help to reduce lifetime costs. Its modern ergonomic design with touch-screen displays is a real leap forward in terms of ease of use and crucially; it gives end users the opportunity to manage protocol themselves and future-proof the installation.’

The new panel is wholly backwards compatible with the existing MZX range, which in turn can fully interface with the older legacy Minerva range. As a result, upgrading existing systems should be straightforward and quick. The system can also be updated in line with future advances in fire detection technology and can be easily expanded, allowing a capacity of up to 2,000 addresses per panel and up to 99 panels per network.

The Zettler Profile range of control panels will be available from two to eight loops. It can also be managed via a new remote user interface, an 8-inch colour touch-screen with multi-lingual options. Up to 8 user interfaces can be used per panel. From an aesthetic standpoint, the contemporary and discreet touch-screens have been designed with a fully customisable home screen, which can be branded in-line with the building’s corporate identity.

With an intuitive and intelligent design, the complexity of the system has been reduced to ensure on-going management of the system can be completed efficiently. Furthermore, users can now ensure site and zone maps feature on the user panel helping to locate a fire alarm as quickly as possible and also save time and cost in locating any fault which might occur. 

Users can log on using Radio Frequency Identification Technology (RFID) for fast and secure identification, instead of using a traditional key method. Engineers can configure the system with the required cause-and-effect programming, leaving the building occupier with the software necessary for the day-to-day management of the system. In addition, with a standard USB, extensive information can be downloaded - a key advantage when it comes to diagnostics and analysis.
