Kentec Sigma XT+ (3 Area)
I've got a couple of issues with a Kentec Sigma XT+ (3 User) gas extinguishant panel.

Typically, the Kentec Sigma series is fitted with an integral PSU.
This particular 3 User panel is fitted with a Kentec S406 PSU.
Is this standard or do I have a bespoke setup?

Both the MAINS FAIL and the BATT FAIL warning LED's (located at the bottom of the main Sigma control PCB) do not illuminate when the said conditions occur.

The Sigma does however go into GENERAL FAULT but there is no indication as to whether it's mains or battery related.

Is this normal?
Have Kentec sacrificed the LED indication to upgrade the PSU?

The other point being, the 3 User panel (with the S406 PSU) is incredibly slow to indicate a power fault compared to the 2 User version (with the standard integral PSU).
Is this normal?

Does anyone know?
Yes it's normal, same as earth faults won't light the lower LED. They wire in a generic pair from the PSU's onbaord fault relay to the PF input
