Whilst acknowledging the benefits of addressable systems technology, there still remains a place for conventional fire alarm and detection systems. Conventional systems can be installed using both two and four wire devices, that is with sounder and beacon devices on the same circuits as detectors and call points (2 wire) or on separate circuits (4 wire). The obvious advantage of the two wire system is a saving in the cost of cable and labour. Conventional systems are suitable for the smaller and simpler systems where the functionality of addressable systems is not required, such as small shops, schools, and small industrial units and similar.

Conventional Control Panels (Land)

The MZX range of conventional panels supports “twin wire” systems up to eight zones and four wire systems from four to thirty two zones thereby providing a panel to suit a wide range of types and sizes of buildings. Both “twin wire” and four wire systems support simple class-change for use in schools, and two stage alarm outputs where phased evacuation is a requirement. Repeater panel options are available with both systems as are a comprehensive range of detectors, call points and sounders and beacons.

Conventional Control Panels (Marine/Offshore)

Tyco offer a range of control panels specifically designed for off-shore applications. All the control panels offer industry-leading functionality, together with the peace of mind of being approved by all the leading Marine Approval Bodies such as the Marine Equipment Directive, Lloyds Register, the Loss Prevention Certification Board and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency. Tyco’s marine approved range of control panels offer the same powerful user interface, modular construction and range of repeater options provided by their land-based alternatives.

Conventional Detectors

The MZX range of Conventional detectors, although not as intelligent as their addressable namesakes, employs similar excellent detection and anti-false alarm features. The range includes Multi-sensors, optical/heat and carbon monoxide/heat, in addition to single channel optical smoke, rate of rise and fixed temperature heat, ionisation chamber and infra-red flame detectors.

Conventional Callpoints

Tyco’s range of call-points includes both indoor and outdoor models. Call points can be flush or surface mounted as a selection of back boxes and bezels are available. Anti-tamper devices are also available which fit around the unit making it less likely for persons to attempt malicious activations.

Bells, Sounders and Beacons

A full and comprehensive range of audio and visual devices are available within the MZX range, for both two and four wire systems.

Tyco offers a range of solenoid and motorised bells, together with a wide range of electronic sounders including models such as Symphoni sounders, general purpose electronic sounders such as the Banshee and Roshni sounders and voice enhanced sounders such as the FireCryer® Plus.

24V LED beacons, single gang lamp/buzzer units and Flashni units are available, as are a range of sounder/beacon bases including the Banshee Excel Lite sounder beacon and the Easy AV™ Retrofit LED Beacon.

Tyco also now offers an EN54-23 compliant range of visual alarm devices. EN54-23 is the mandatory standard for all visual alarm devices (VAD) used on fire systems as a primary means of alarm.

Land-Based Conventional Control Panel Range

  • MZX-c+ Conventional Control Panels - Designed and manufactured to a high standard and are approved to EN54 parts 2 & 4. These Panels are available in 4,8,16 & 32 zone versions along with associated Repeaters for all models

  • MZX-c Conventional Control Panels - A range of conventional twin wire fire alarm control panels will satisfy a wide range of applications from 2 to 8 zones and have many features that are normally associated with more expensive addressable systems 

  • MZX-e Extinguishing Control Panel - This gaseous extinguishant control panel is powerful yet user-friendly and is designed and manufactured to a high standard. The panel features approval to EN 12094- 1:2003, and EN 54-2. The panel has extensive configuration options but is easy to install, programme and operate

Offshore Conventional Control Panel Range

  • T1200 and T1200-C Conventional Panel Range - Developed and Manufactured in the United Kingdom the T1200 range of Conventional Panels from Tyco is a powerful yet user friendly series of Control Panels. The range is fully approved by all major Marine Authorities and takes advantage of the very latest technological advancements both in terms of design and manufacturing to the latest European, Marine and Asian standards 

  • T1000 Intelligent Marine Control Panels - A range of intelligent fire panels, which provide many of the features normally only found on more expensive analogue addressable panels 

  • MZX-e Extinguishing Control Panel - The MZX-e gaseous extinguishant control panel is powerful yet user-friendly and is designed and manufactured to a high standard. The panel features approval to EN 12094- 1:2003, and EN 54-2. The panel has extensive configuration options but is easy to install, programme and operate. The removable chassis enables the engineer to “first fix” an empty cabinet and then fit the chassis at the commissioning stage

Conventional Detectors and Bases Range

  • 601CH Enhanced Carbon Monoxide Heat Detectors - A unique general purpose fire detector which provides very early warning of slow smouldering fires. Ideal for sleeping risks the CO fire detector is also well suited to many applications where heat detection is insufficient but smoke detection causes false alarms

  • 601H Heat Detectors - Use two networked thermistors in a bridge configuration to provide a fast response, that depends both on absolute temperature and notes the change of temperature

  • 601P Optical Smoke Detectors - Capable of detecting the visible smoke produced by materials which smoulder or burn slowly, i.e. soft furnishings, plastic foam etc or ‘smoke’ produced by overheated but unburnt PVC 

  • 601PH Optical Smoke + Heat Detectors - React to the whole range of fire products from slow smouldering fires, producing visible particles to open flaming fires producing large numbers of very hot smaller sized aerosols 

  • 601F Flame Detector - A fully featured solar blind flame detector for indoor use and boasts a high degree of false alarm immunity

  • T54B - Point Type Heat Detector - An extremely rugged heat detector that can be used to detect fires in the harshest of environments. The T54B can be used in environments with ambient temperatures up to 200°C and, being hermetically sealed is impervious to most contaminants

  • 4 Inch Detector Bases and Deckhead Mounts - A range of standard and functional 4 inch bases and deckhead mounts are available from Tyco
