Future-proof facility safety

Issue 6 2021 Fire & Safety

Johnson Controls has released the Zettler Profile Lite range of addressable fire alarm control panels into South Africa. The two new addressable panel models, Pro215 Lite and Pro415 Lite, have colour LCD screens with 32 zonal LEDs integrated into a simple interface that reduces operator errors.

Both Profile Lite panel models feature red housing options, ideal for facilities that require the fire alarm control panel to be easily and quickly noticeable by first responders. The panels can be easily localised, which helps the user perform correct actions. Features such as remote connectivity and backwards compatibility make the panels a future-proof fire and life safety solution for a wide range of commercial buildings.

The Pro215S Lite and Pro215S Lite Red are two-loop, networkable panels with shallow housing. They support two standard power loops or one high-power loop with a maximum of 250 addresses.

The Pro415S Lite and Pro415S Lite Red are four-loop, networkable panels with shallow housing. They support four standard power loops or two high-power loops with a maximum of 500 addresses. The Pro415D Lite offers the same loop capacity as the Pro415S Lite, but with deep housing for additional batteries.

The Zettler Profile Lite range is supported by a robust loop protocol that can operate in the harshest environments. To simplify system upgrades, existing cables can be re-used, which also significantly reduces the cost of replacing a system. The panels provide ample loop power to meet the increasing demand for visual alarms in addition to traditional audible alarms.

“The new Profile Lite panels provide flexibility to end users, contractors and installers in terms of hardware configuration, scalability and feature set,” said Peter Hauser, senior global product manager, Fire Detection Products, Johnson Controls. “Designed and manufactured in Europe, these panels offer high-quality fire detection technology for a wide range of applications.”

Zettler Profile Lite fire alarm control panels are part of the Johnson Controls OpenBlue suite of connected solutions. Other notable features include:

• 10 000 event log.

• Programmable quiescent display gives an opportunity for customer branding.

• Special cause/effect programming.

• Manual and automatic walk test and reporting functions.

• Up to 500 addresses.

• Networkable.

• Functional repeaters available.
