TAKING FIRE ALARM TECHNOLOGY TO A NEW LEVEL
Every once in a while a product comes along that lifts existing, respected technology to another level. C-TEC’s ZFP is one such product.
Created with the input of some of the world’s leading fire alarm and life safety experts, the ZFP is the powerful touchscreen controlled fire alarm panel that everyone’s been waiting for.
Designed and built in the UK, the panel can be configured to suit any application. From small ‘one out, all out’ systems to large multi-loop networked systems with sophisticated cause and effects, the ZFP can handle them all – with ease.
TOUCH AND GO
Everything about the ZFP’s unique full-colour touchscreen interface has been designed with the user in mind.
Simply tap the option you require and away you go. Whether you’re the responsible person on site, the installer, the commissioning engineer or the emergency services, you can access the information you require quickly and easily – all at the touch of a virtual button.
Powerful diagnostics, rapid loop learn, ‘SafeMode’ and a unique ‘DeviceManager’ function combine to make the ZFP one of the most user friendly control panels on the market.
MIX AND MATCH
Mix and match is the name of the game with the ZFP and, with three master cabinets to choose from, you’re spoilt for choice.
Depending on the cabinet you choose, extra indicator and switch modules can be added, along with additional loop driver PCBs, high-integrity network PCBs, ‘A-BUS’ peripheral PCBs, flush mounting bezels, glazed stainless steel frames and more.
With a wide range of ‘off-the-shelf’ ZFPs also available, getting the panel you need for a specific application has never been easier.
With its classy Compact Controllers, the ZFP not only does the job, it looks the part too.
Worried that your plush new reception area is going to be compromised by an ugly metal box in the main entrance? Think again! The ZFP’s optional state-of-theart
Compact Controllers are stylish, smart and can actually enhance the design of a building’s reception area and access points. Simply locate the main panel out of sight and let the ZFP’s modern high-tech Compact Controllers add a touch of class to your surroundings.
Never before has networking a fire panel been so trouble-free.
Creating a sophisticated fire alarm system for an airport, hospital, university, tower block, hotel, football stadium or other large building is just a few steps up from establishing a simple ‘one out, all out’ system for a small factory unit.
Up to 64 eight-loop panels can be interconnected over the ZFP’s high-integrity fault tolerant network. This versatility, coupled with the ability to assign individual zones across the network and add up to 38 characters of custom text per device means letting the emergency services know the precise location of a fire has never been easier.
“I don’t make fire panels, I install them, but this is the fire panel I would have designedif I was an R&D engineer. The ZFP has virtually every feature you can think of and its touchscreen interface makes installation, commissioning and servicing very easy.”
DAVID KEY, PHOENIX FIRE
AND THAT’S NOT ALL!
For specialist installation companies and commissioning engineers, the ZFP has no equal.
Features such as a fully filterable 20,000+ event memory, optional paging facilities, powerful 500mA loop drivers with plug-on connectors, spacious cabinets with a 20-way earth bar, the ability to achieve up to 72 hours standby in a standard cabinet and intuitive PC programming tools combine to make the ZFP a very special fire panel indeed.
All this and full compliance with EN54 parts 2 and 4 means that the ZFP is rapidly becoming the fire panel of choice for the fire industry worldwide.
