Kentec previews latest Taktis evolution
13 March 2020
At Intersec (19-21 Jan 2020, Dubai), Kentec Electronics previewed Taktis Command Point – a fully-integrated fire investigation and evacuation process panel that covers every element of fire protection in one integrated solution.
The purpose of the demonstration was to gather customer feedback, prior to the product range becoming commercially available. Building on Kentec’s powerful and sophisticated Taktis analogue addressable fire panel, the fully-scalable Command Point allows full display of the fire event location and a central point for fire-fighting services to manage the evacuation process and optional smoke control. It will also enable voice controls and sounders, fire telephone and ultimately support a building’s smart functionality.
Command Point is fully-customisable, available in 28 languages (including Arabic), with UAE RoHS and RoHS2 approvals.
The UAE RoHS regulation covers all EEE (Electrical and Electronic Equipment) and has been introduced as a mandatory requirement. It means that the United Arab Emirates shall take all appropriate measures to ensure EEE placed on the market or put into service are constructed in accordance with engineering practices that ensure restricted materials (if present) are below the prescribed limits detailed in this Technical Regulation. It is therefore a critical accreditation for Kentec’s continued success within the UAE.
Kentec’s stand is also showcasing the full Taktis product range that has recently achieved EN54-13 approvals, as well as the Intelligent Kentec Optical Networking (IKON) system – a technology designed to guarantee network integrity on Kentec fire system networks. IKON provides full visibility of a network’s data condition, a proactive approach to system management and a highly-effective time-saving tool in locating system faults.
