Published:  07 September, 2015

Tyco Fire Protection Products is launching the new Zettler Profile fire detection control panel range to meet market demands in the Asia Pacific Region. 

Aesthetically designed to blend into any environment, from luxury hotels to schools, universities, hospitals and commercial multi-story offices, the Profile touch-screen user interface allows access to any part of the menu in three easy steps.  According to Tyco, the detection system can help improve efficiencies, reduce lifetime costs and ensure high levels of fire safety.  System owners and users who require to access and manage the programming software can now do so with a user-friendly version of the configuration tool.

The Zettler Profile is a new way of interfacing and managing all aspects of the MZX Technology digital addressable system. The new panel is backward compatible with the existing MZX range, all of which can fully interface with the older legacy Minerva range. The system can also be updated in line with future advances in fire detection technology and can be expanded, allowing a capacity of up to 2,000 addressable devices per panel and up to 99 panels per network.

The Zettler Profile range of control panels will be 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. The contemporary and discreet touchscreens have been designed with a fully customisable home screen, and can be branded in-line with the building’s corporate identity. 

Zettler Profile allows users to log on using the latest Radio Frequency Identification Technology 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.

Besides VdS, EN54.13, EN54.2 and EN54.4 European approvals, Profile has also been approved by Singapore TUV – PSB: EN54 and Singapore Code of Practice: SS CP10:2005.
