Smoke Ventilation Specialists
Single Zone
5AMP
The Single Zone Ventilator Control Panel is our low cost unit designed to operate one or two Natural Daily or Smoke Extract Ventilators as one control zone where the ventilators are fitted with 24V D.C. actuators and there is a requirement for a maintained power supply.

Typically these are installed to protect Staircases, Lobbies, Corridors or Smoke Extract Shafts.The panel may be configured as single local panel or used as part of a collective control system in conjunction with other Stairwell Control Panels.Each panel requires a 230V A.C. power supply and outputs 5 Amp at 24V D.C. maximum to operate the actuators. This power supply comes from an internal charger / power unit which provides the required smooth 24V D.C. power output essential for the long life of the ventilator actuators. To further prolong the actuator life the 24V D.C. power voltage is applied only when the actuators operate. Each panel may be controlled via no voltage (n/v) contacts from a Fire Alarm interface unit, by others and or by direct connection to independent Smoke Detector Heads, break glass units and Fireman’s Override Switches as part of an MPK system.To comply with the requirements of the new British Standard BS: EN12101 part 10 section 4.1 (Covering power supplies) which requires the control panel to have two independent sources of power

The MPK Single zone control panel operates as follows:
  • The first or primary 24V D.C. power supply to the actuators comes directly from the internal high quality transformer rectifier unit. This is sized to provide the full 5.0 amp maximum actuator load plus the additional power required to charge the battery pack.
  • The secondary or standby power supply to the actuators comes from the standby battery pack which is also designed to provide the 5.0 Amp actuator load.
  • This configuration ensures that the actuators will operate from the mains supply in the event of battery failure or from the batteries in the event of a mains power failure.

10AMP
The Single Zone Ventilator Control Panel is our low cost unit designed to operate Natural Daily or Smoke Extract Ventilators as one control zone where the ventilators are fitted with 24V D.C. actuators and there is a requirement for a maintained power supply of 10 amps.

Typically these are installed to protect staircases, Lobbies, Corridors or Smoke Extract Shafts. The panel may be configured as single local panel or used as part of a collective control system in conjunction with other Stairwell Control Panels. Each panel requires a 230V A.C. power supply and outputs 10 Amp at 24V D.C. maximum to operate the actuators.

  • The secondary or standby power supply to the actuators comes from the standby battery pack which is also designed to provide the 10.0 Amp actuator load.
  • This configuration ensures that the actuators will operate from the mains supply in the event of battery failure or from the batteries in the event of a mains power failure.

Multi Zone 
The Multi Zone Control Panel is designed to operate multiple zones of ventilators where the ventilators are fitted with 24V D.C. actuators.
 
Typically this type of panel is installed to operate a number of smoke shaft ventilators plus a shaft head Ventilator or to operate systems with multiple AOVs in staircases, lobbies or corridors. Multi zone control panels are also used in conjunction with powered extract or pressurisation systems.
Each panel requires a 230V A.C. power supply and the control of each ventilator zone is via one or more 24V D.C. x 10 amp output printed circuit cards. The actual number of ventilators operated depends on the specific actuator power requirements for each project.
Each card is individually fused and has adjustable timing and links to other boards. This ensures that in the event of a card fault then the remaining cards in that control zone will continue to function.
Fuse protection is also provided to each control zone so that in the unlikely event of a complete zone failure the remaining control zones will continue to operate.
 
Each zone can also be:
  • Linked directly to the fire alarm system via a no voltage (N/V) interface units, by others.
  • Operated from 24V D.C. smoke detector head systems, driven and controlled from the zone card.
  • Operated by break glass units and / or local Fireman’s override switches.
  • May be Remotely operated
  • Interlink between the panels is in signal rated cable further reduces the system overall cost.
 
Each MCP may also have zone operating switches, these may be used for maintenance purposes or may be configured as master override switches to countermand any remote sensor or other signals, from break glass units or other sensors.
BS: EN 12101 Part 10
The standard panel has 24V D.C. x 5 amp power supply / battery charger unit.
To comply with the requirements of the new British Standard BS: EN12101 part 10 section 4.1 (Covering power supplies) which requires the control panel to have two independent sources of power.
For systems requiring more power to comply with this standard, enhanced power supply / charger units are available as:-
10 amp, 20 amp, 30 amp and 40 amp units.

Bespoke
A fully programmable zonal control panel, designed to operate windows and ventilators for natural daily ventilation and or smoke control ventilation.

The programmable control panels are similar in specification to the multi zone panels but with additional features:-
  • Computerised (PLC) control with increased 20 amp output per zone
  • Programmable relay
  • Rain /wind sensor circuitry
  • 0-10 volt control inputs
  • Auto / Manual / Override operation from panel switches or from remote Fireman’s switch panel.
This system allows complete versatility of control with BMS interfaces and a wide range of external sensor control including rain sensing operation, wind sensing systems, thermostatic control with staged opening and interconnection with other control, units such as smoke detectors, remote fire switches or even other control panels allowing master / slave operation.

The standard system provides 10/ 20amp output per zone card at 24vdc which can support batteries from the integral chargers. Complies with BS: EN12101 Part 10 with full duplicate mains/24V D.C. primary and 24V D.C. secondary battery operation. There are three operating modes Auto / Manual and Override. In each mode the actuator 24V D.C. power supply is timed off to ensure that the motors cannot be damaged if they fail to or are hindered from reaching their limit switches.
