6300 Fire Alarm Control Panel
  • Cost Effective
  High specification interactive digital addressable fire detection and alarm system, providing a cost effective solution for small, medium and large sized buildings and sites.
  • Design Flexibility
  Up to 32 control panels, repeats and illuminated zonal mimics can be networked enabling system design and expansion to be easily achieved to suit the site for economic wiring and operational convenience.
  • Secure Network
  Wired as a loop, the network’s dual channel RS485 link ensures that no single fault will affect the system.
  • Easy to Install
  An extensive range comprising Loop Powered Alarm Sounders, Visual Alarm Devices, Interfaces, Manual Call Points and 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), accommodating up to 191 devices per Loop, 512 maximum per panel.

The Protec Algo-Tec™ 6300 is an interactive digital addressable fire detection and alarm system ideally suited for small , medium & large sized buildings such as nursing homes, hotels and offices. The control panel is designed and manufactured by Protec to comply with EN 54-2 & 4. The control panel is available as surface or recessed mounted with a moulded polycarbonate hinged door finished in storm grey, or optionally with polished solid brass or brushed stainless steel finish for recess mounting only.

Up to 32 Algo-Tec™ 6300 control and repeat panels and illuminated zonal mimics can be interconnected using the optional add in 6300 network card. Wired as a loop the networks dual channel fault tolerant RS485 ensures that no single fault can disable the system. In the event of multiple faults, each panel will function independently. The network can be wired using copper or fibre optic cables.

Each 6300 control panel is equipped with 1, 2 or 4 high capacity Algo-Tec™ digital addressable data loops, with up to 191 address capacity per loop. Total panel devices is restricted to 512 inputs to comply with EN54 part 2. In addition to sensors, interfaces and manual call points the loop can also support loop powered SOUNDERS, VISUAL ALARM DEVICES and OPTICAL BEAM DETECTORS. Loop powered sounder bases adopt the sensor address to increase the capacity of the loops still further, resulting in reduced cabling requirements, simplified installation and associated cost savings.

Features and Benefits (Continued from above)


  • Reduced False Alarms
  The Protec Algo-Tec™ 6000 interactive fire sensors utilise advanced discriminating algorithms for maximum reliability and immunity to false alarms.
  • Enhanced Performance
  The Protec Algo-Tec™ 6000 sensors learn from their environment, applying interactive decision making algorithms to provide stability, threshold
compensation and optimised performance.
  • Secure Detection Loops
  Many Protec Algo-Tec™ 6000 devices incorporate built-in short circuit isolator units. These can be located as required.
  • 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.
  • Reduced Maintenance Costs
  Early indication and reporting of sensors approaching contamination level reduce false alarms and enable dirty sensors to be cleaned or replaced.
  • Optional RS232 Port
  Typically used to connect to a colour graphics system, pager system or BMS interface. Allows PC connection for backup and programming.
