Kentec integral sounder mode
#1
Lads just wondering has anyone set this type of setup on a large enough system ( 15 panels networked) They are student accommodation apartments so if a device activates in that apartment the sounder in that apartment operate and after 6 mins if it's not reset it evacuated that block.
If a device in a common hallway or stairs activates it starts the 6 min delay and then evacuated all of that block. There's approx 28 apartments per block.

Done simular not on network but it won't be much different on network, just some C&E across the network.
Aint gonna be straightforward on Kentec - a lot C&E lines and some limitations you will have and some silly setups to overcome the C&E limitations. If you had Advanced, it would be much quicker to do the C&E.

We had Advanced ordered for the job (only use kentec for non networked systems now due to their limitations of anything slightly complex) but client is insisting on kentec as they have it on other sites.
Was thinking the only way around it was using the fire and alarm contacts and putting a delay on them and having no delay on the sounders and outputs and letting the relays use the delay, not a fan of depending on relays only to activate the sounders at all though.

Done it on EMS system using the above method mate.

Lot of messing about but worked out in the end.
