Gent by Honeywell is synonymous with quality and innovation in the fire detection and alarm industry. Gent is driven by its pride in innovation to continuously improve the integrity of fire detection and deliver peace of mind to all Gent customers.
The strength of Vigilon and Nano lies in the combination of powerful control panel software with Gent by Honeywell's market-leading range of intelligent devices.
All devices are powered by the loop, delivering a flexible, streamlined system in any type of building. Requiring just a single two-core cable to connect the loop, every device includes an integral short circuit isolator to reduce installation cost and increase system integrity.
Most frequently used in smaller premises, the devices for a conventional alarm system are divided into zones: i.e. Zone 1 located on the 1st floor, and Zone 2 on the 2nd floor. Each zone is connected to the control panel via its own radial circuit, but on activation, there is no way of pinpointing the exact location of the fire, only which Zone it's in. It is a cost effective system to buy, and will meet the functional needs of small premises where a sophisticated system is not necessary.
By significantly reducing search time, addressable systems are more suitable for larger premises with specific areas of concern, i.e. schools, hospitals, large office complexes etc. Every device in the system has its own unique address, and is connected to the control panel via a loop. When a fire is detected, the device's address shows up on the main control panel, indicating exactly which device has been activated.
