Tyco's next-generation fire control panel enhances safety with advanced usability options

Tyco Fire Protection Products, a Tyco business, is launching the new ZETTLER PROFILE fire detection control panel range to meet a variety of market demands in the Asia Pacific Region. Aesthetically blending into any environment, from luxury hotels to schools, universities and hospitals, commercial multi-story offices to large scale multi-site complexes, the PROFILE touch-screen user interface allows access to any part of the menu in only three easy steps. Once installed, the system can help improve efficiencies, reduce lifetime costs and fundamentally ensure the highest enhanced levels of fire safety. In addition, system owners and users who require access to manage the programming software can now do so with the release of a user-friendly version of the configuration tool.

The ZETTLER PROFILE is a new way of interfacing and managing all aspects of the renowned MZX Technology® digital addressable system, which delivers a range of unique benefits as part of an overall fire safety strategy. The new panel is totally backwards compatible with the existing MZX range, all of which can fully interface with the older legacy Minerva range meaning upgrading existing systems is easy, saving time and reducing installation costs. 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 is available from one to eight loops. The system can also be managed via a remote user interface, an 8-inch colour touchscreen with multi-lingual options. Up to 8 user interfaces can be used per panel. From an aesthetic standpoint, the contemporary and discreet touchscreens 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.

Simple to install, configure and service, ZETTLER PROFILE allows users to log on using the latest Radio Frequency Identification Technology (RFID) for fast and secure identification, instead of a traditional key. 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.

“The launch of ZETTLER PROFILE represents the future of digital fire detection technology; providing power, reliability and the highest levels of fire safety to protect lives and reduce false alarms,” explained Geoff Fiala, Director of Product Management for Tyco Fire Protection Products, APAC.

“The new system is an evolution of the MZX Technology, developed to meet a multitude of customer requirements. The system is easy to install, configure and service; all of which help to reduce lifetime costs. Its modern ergonomic design with touchscreen 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.”

Besides VdS, EN54.13 and EN54.2 European approvals, PROFILE has also been approved by Singapore TUV – PSB: EN54 & Singapore Code of Practice: SS CP10:2005.
