  • Autonomous decision-making for faster response times
  • Multiple type codes
  • 40V loop drive voltage
  • Two ‘soft’ addressing options – automatic via the panel or manual via a powerful handheld programmer
  • Powerful multi-level addressing facilitates easy device addition and swapped device identification
  • Multiple functionality at a single address (integrated devices) – due 2017
  • Volumes, tones & detector modes can be changed at compatible panels
  • High-speed data transmission and robust data transfer
  • Intrinsically EN54-13 compliant
  • Provides geographical location of short and open circuit faults (a short circuit isolator is included as standard in every CAST field device)
  • Replace device function
  • Future seamless integration with other CAST life safety systems reducing energy, servicing, installation and repair costs
  • Designed and manufactured in the UK
