System Features
The Protec Algo-TecTM 6100 is an interactive digital
addressable fire detection and alarm system ideally
suited for small and medium sized buildings such as
shops, hotels and offices. The control panel is designed
and manufactured by Protec to comply with EN 54-2 &
4. The control panel is suitable for surface or recessed
mounting with a moulded polycarbonate enclosure
finished in storm grey.
Loop
The 6100 control panel is equipped with a high capacity
Algo-TecTM digital addressable data loop, with up to
192 addresses. In addition to the Algo-TecTM 6000PLUS
sensors, interfaces and manual call points the loop can
also support loop powered SOUNDERS, VISUAL ALARM
DEVICES and OPTICAL BEAM DETECTORS. Additionally
a 6300 Loop Powered Repeat Display can be connected
directly to this loop, resulting in reduced cabling
requirements, simplified installation and associated cost
savings.
Liquid Crystal Display
The 80 character liquid crystal display will under normal quiescent conditions display the current date and time with the option to also display a 40-character user’s
message such as site name.
In an alarm or fault condition the LCD will display the device, address and zone
number and up to 20 characters of user definable location text, programmable on
site using Protec 6100 windows based software.
Device Location Text
Windows based text software is supplied free of charge to our clients to enable
you to enter the location text on to the disk supplied and hand to our commissioning
engineer for loading into the panel during commissioning. This simple process allows you more flexibility enabling you to make any last minute changes and speed
up the entire process.
Alarms
In addition to loop powered sounders and Visual Alarm
Devices (VAD’s), 2 fully monitored alarm outputs are
provided at the panel for alternative wiring arrangements.
Power Supply
The 6100 control panel is supplied with an integral 1A dc switch mode charger and
accommodates two 12V 3.3 Ah sealed lead acid battery.
Auxiliary Contacts
One set of global fire, and one set of fault changeover
contacts.
On Site Programming
The Protec Algo-Tec™ 6100 system is on site programmable. All of the commissioning configuration data can be entered and/or backed up using the Protec 6100
windows based programming software via a PC. This feature enables the system
to be re-configured and checked prior to attending site simplifying commissioning
works on site, enabling text amendments to be carried out whilst on site and providing an invaluable remote backup should the need arise.
Controls and Display
All the functions of the modern styled Control Panel are
accessed by entering the user access code. The controls
are SILENCE, SOUND ALARMS, RESET and ACCEPT
plus navigation push buttons to enable access to the
user menu facilities. The control panel display consists
of a 4x20 character liquid crystal display, twin common
fire LED indicators, 16 separate zonal fire LED’s, power
on, pre-alarm, system fault, common fault, test and
disablement LEDs.
Loop Devices
The Protec Algo-Tec™ 6000PLUS protocol utilises FAST™
addressing (Firmware Addressed Secure Technology).
Every FAST™ device is manufactured with a unique serial number.
FAST™ addressing ELIMINATES troublesome and time
consuming address cards and DIL switching whilst being
far more secure than “soft addressing”.

The Protec Algo-Tec™ 6100 Interactive Digital
Addressable System unwrapped:
The Protec Algo-TecTM 6000PLUS protocol developed by
Protec’s in-house Research and Development team is
utilised by the Protec Algo-TecTM 6100 interactive digital
addressable fire control systems. Immunity to false
alarms, more responsive fire detection, and ease of use
has all been achieved to develop one of the most reliable
systems available.
Protec Algo-Tec™ 6000PLUS
The name Algo-TecTM is a derivative of Protec algorithms.
Algorithms are logical mathematical procedures for
solving problems. Protec have developed fire detection
algorithms coupled with fuzzy logic specifically designed
to reduce unwanted fire alarms and to enhance the
sensitivity of the system to true fire phenomenon. The
Algo-TecTM algorithms are exclusively utilised by the
Protec Algo-TecTM 6400, 6300 and 6100 Interactive Digital
Addressable Fire Control Systems.
Interactive
Algo-TecTM evaluates the data of each fire sensor
and is able to learn from the information received.
This may simply be to recognise that a sensor is
becoming contaminated or in a dirty environment
and to automatically increase the alarm threshold to
compensate for the background levels (Threshold
Compensation).
More complex Algo-TecTM functions include the ability
to discriminate between certain fire and non-fire
conditions, filtering out certain environmental stimuli, and
increasing the sensitivity of a sensor when an increase in
temperature is detected.
The net effect of the interaction between the sensors
and the Algo-TecTM decision making is enhanced
performance, through immunity to false alarms and more
responsive fire detection.
Digital Addressable
The data communication between the sensors and the
control equipment is Digital.
The Algo-TecTM protocol utilised by the 6000PLUS system
enables high levels of data to be transferred, providing
far more detailed information than was previously
achievable with analogue addressable systems. It should
however be noted that many analogue addressable
systems use digital communication but do not transfer
the high levels of data associated with the Algo-TecTM
protocol. Speed, stability, excellent EMC and security all
serve to enhance the Algo-TecTM Digital signalling. Why
go analogue addressable when you can now choose
Algo-TecTM Digital Addressable.
6300 Loop LCD Display
The 6300/LOOP/LCD can be connected directly to the local Algo-TecTM digital addressable
data loop and takes up just one address. The facia displays power, fire, fault, disablement
and more alarms.
Fire and fault events are displayed on the 2 x 40 character LCD display and automatically
scroll. A backlight ensures that the events can be read in all lighting situations. Fire
events have highest priority and inhibit the display of fault events. A new event initiates
the internal buzzer and a mute button allows the internal buzzer to be muted.
