The Kentec Syncro range of fire alarms are compatible with the SMC Gateway, with full point location details being available including the breaking down of the message into it’s components:
- Panel (networked systems only)
Connection from the Syncro fire alarm to the gateway is via the PC Data connection on the rear of the front panel. You will require the Kentec PC RS232/Data lead as the connector on the fire alarm is not a standard RS232 connector, and we recommend the use of an RS232 optical isolator to avoid ground loop faults.
The SMC Gateway requires an OPT01 or OPT04 board to provide the RS232 connection. The serial connection defaults to 19200 8N1.
