Product Details

The Protec Algo-Tec™ 6100 is an interactive digital addressable fire detection and alarm system ideally suited for small and medium sized buildings such as shops, hotels and offices. The control panel is designed and manufactured by Protec to comply with EN 54-2 & 4. The control panel is suitable for surface or recessed mounting with a moulded polycarbonate enclosure finished in storm grey.

The 6100 control panel is equipped with a high capacity Algo-Tec™ digital addressable data loop, with up to 192 addresses. In addition to the Algo-Tec™ 6000PLUS sensors, interfaces and manual call points the loop can also support loop powered SOUNDERS, VISUAL ALARM DEVICES and OPTICAL BEAM DETECTORS. Additionally a 6300 Loop Powered Repeat Display can be connected directly to this loop, resulting in reduced cabling requirements, simplified installation and associated cost savings.


In addition to loop powered sounders and beacons, 2 fully monitored alarm outputs are provided at the panel for alternative wiring arrangements.

Auxiliary Contacts

One set of global fire, and one set of fault changeover contacts.

Controls and Display

All the functions of the modern styled Control Panel are accessed by entering the user access code. The controls are SILENCE, SOUND ALARMS, RESET and ACCEPT plus navigation push buttons to enable access to the user menu facilities. The control panel display consists of a 4×20 character liquid crystal display, twin common fire LED indicators, 16 separate zonal fire LED’s, power on, pre-alarm, system fault, common fault, test and disablement LEDs.

Liquid Crystal Display

The 80 character liquid crystal displaywill under normal quiescent conditions display the current date and time with the option to also display a 40-character user’s message such as site name.
In an alarm or fault condition the LCD will display the device, address and zone number and up to 20 characters of user definable location text, programmable on site using Protec 6100 windows based software.

Device Location Text

Windows based text software is supplied free of charge to our clients to enable you to enter the location text on to the disk supplied and hand to our commissioning engineer for loading into the panel during commissioning. This simple process allows you more flexibility enabling you to make any last minute changes and speed up the entire process.

Power Supply

The 6100 control panel is supplied with an integral 1A dc switch mode charger and accommodates two 12V 3.3 Ah sealed lead acid batteries.

On Site Programming

The Protec Algo-Tec™ 6100 system is on site programmable. All of the commissioning configuration data can be entered and/or backed up using the Protec 6100 windows based programming software via a PC. This feature enables the system to be re-configured and checked prior to attending site simplifying commissioning works on site, enabling text amendments to be carried out whilst on site and providing an invaluable remote backup should the need arise
