10 REASONS FOR
PROFILE FLEXIBLE
1. EXPANDABLE SYSTEM
6. EASY MOUNTING OPTIONS
Grow your fire detection system as your business grows.
PROFILE Flexible has a capacity of 4,000 addresses per panel and
up to 99 panels per network, operating seamlessly together.
The PROFILE Flexible system is capable of not only growing with
your business but also can be adapted to meet your changing needs
with the addition of slot cards and touch screen user interfaces.
PROFILE Flexible panels come with an easy-mount frame, which
allows one person to install the panel. The frame and the cables
can be fitted before the panel is mounted to the wall. This means
stress-free and safer installation of the panels.
2. EXCEEDS MANDATORY APPROVAL
PROFILE Flexible is approved beyond the mandatory levels.
The system has EN54-13 approval, an independent test of the
compatibility between system components, including detectors,
ancillaries and panels. The network is also approved to EN54-2.
These European standards provide peace of mind and confidence
for both life safety and asset protection.
3. LOWER INSTALLATION COST THROUGH
MODULAR DESIGN
The new range of panels introduces modular design capabilities
with the slot card principle. There are around 50 different options
of design meaning millions of combinations are available; offering
the opportunity to build the most economical design which is
specifically tailored to the needs of the application. In addition,
zonal displays can be added in easily.
4. EASY TO ACCESS
Users have a choice of gaining access to the system, using
traditional key, password or RFID tag. With RFID tag there is
no need to remember passwords and unlocking the panel is
effortless, important in an emergency situation. The identity
and access level of users is controlled and recorded which is
especially useful in high risk environments where it can be crucial
to track who performed critical functions.
7. TOUCHSCREEN GRAPHICAL USER
INTERFACE (GUI)
The PROFILE Flexible touchscreen user interface has been
ergonomically designed with end users in mind. The InfoButton provides context sensitive help and on-screen operator
instructions.This guarantees fast and reliable assistance, especially
for infrequent users. The fully customizable home screen allows
the panel to adopt the end users’ corporate identity.
8. EXTENDED LOOP CAPACITY
Practicalities such as the layout of a building or the number of
alarm devices will often dictate the useable size of a detection
loop and can result in unused capacity. In order to optimise
loop capacity, PROFILE Flexible offers a system design solution
with an extended current loop of 1amp. Addressable loops
can be connected as shared power (SP) loops or combined as
high power (HP) loops. The system designer can allocate all
available power and 250 addresses to a single high power loop,
or share resources across two shared power loops. This level of
optimisation can significantly reduce total installed system cost.
9. ON SCREEN SITE MAPS
The PROFILE Flexible GUI uses graphical site maps to show event
locations. On screen site maps allow easy access to information
including floor plans and extended device information, which
can be configured to carry the latest information. Accessing this
electronically via the panel GUI can save time in the event of a fire
as location information is accessed easily.
5. FORWARDS AND BACKWARD COMPATIBLE
PROFILE Flexible technology can be integrated with existing
ZETTLER fire detection systems, reusing wiring, detectors
and any other existing loop devices. Customers can upgrade
from the traditional user interface to PROFILE’s advanced color
touchscreen GUI, greatly extending the service life of customer’s
present systems, whilst keeping costs to a minimum. The
capabilities of the PROFILE Flexible panel can be extended
as requirements change. Future system upgrades can be
accommodated using the slot card mechanism.
10. COMPREHENSIVE DATA STORAGE
& DIAGNOSTICS
The configuration software can easily be uploaded via a USB
drive, which saves money and time during installation. Up to
10,000 events from the event memory can be downloaded
to a USB stick and further processed in Excel. In addition
detailed reports include those for walk test, system status and
maintenance. They can then be printed and filtered, which allows
in-depth event diagnosis.
