Product Details

The Protec Algo-Tec™ 6500 is a high specification, feature rich, economical, interactive digital addressable fire detection and alarm system ideally suited for small, medium and large sized buildings and sites. The control panel is designed and manufactured by Protec and complies to the latest EN54-2 & EN54-4. The control panel is available for surface or recess mounting with an aesthetically pleasing moulded polycarbonate hinged door finished in storm grey.

Scalable in every aspect, the 6500 system offers tailor made engineered solutions for all applications, from single panel systems to large multi panel networks. Modular design backed by powerful cause and effect programming enables 6500 systems to be configured exactly to the needs of any commercial or industrial site.

Secure Network – The innovative redundant peer to peer network is a high speed data transfer, fail safe, fault tolerant communication channel allowing up to 64 Algo-Tec™ 6500 Fire alarm panels to operate as though they are a single distributed fire system and complies with BS5839-1. No single network fault can disable the system and in the event of multiple faults, each panel will function independently. The network can be wired using copper or fibre optic connections.

Loops – Each 6500 control panel is equipped with 1, 2 or 4 high capacity Algo-Tec™ 6000PLUS digital addressable data loops, with up to 200 addresses per loop, totalling 800 addressable devices per panel, 51,200 addressable devices network wide and compliant with EN54 pt2 clause 13.7.

Design Flexibility

Scalable, the 6500 system offers tailor made engineered solutions for all applications, from single panel systems (6500E) to large multi panel networks.

Easy to Install

An extensive range comprising Loop Powered Alarm Sounders, Loop Powered Talking Sounders, Visual Alarm Devices, Interfaces, Manual Call Points and Multi Criteria Sensors can all be connected to the nearest control panel using a single 2-core cable for each of the high capacity Loops (up to 4 loops), accommodating up to 200 devices per Loop, 800 maximum per panel, 51,200 addressable devices network wide.

Easy to Address

FAST™ (Firmware Addressed Secure Technology) ELIMINATES troublesome and time consuming setting of address cards and DIL switches.

Devices Display Address Number

‘RVAV’ Remote Visual Address Verification. Confirmation of the correct location of each device can be easily identified, using the devices in-built LED to indicate the device address number.

On Site Flexibility

Configuration of all system functions is fully site programmable.

Communication Ports

Typically used to connect to a colour graphics system, pager system or BMS interface.

True System Management

As each device incorporates a unique Fast serial number encoded during manufacture, TRUE SYSTEM MANAGEMENT is achievable, providing precise DEVICE history in addition to LOCATION history for a specific site system and total traceability of all devices manufactured from our commissioning files for quality management, using optional PC package.

Approved to the latest EN54 2 & 4 supporting 800 devices

(in compliance with Clause 13-7 of EN54 pt2).
