‘CAST’ is the world’s most-advanced ‘distributed intelligence’ fire alarm system protocol. Conceived, designed and realised by C-TEC as part of a five-year, multi-million pound project, it involved the creation of a powerful proprietary communication protocol (C-TEC Addressable System Technology, CAST) and multiple control panels & field devices.

  • 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
  • Programmable multi-function status LED
  • Future seamless integration with other CAST life safety systems reducing energy, servicing, installation and repair costs
  • Designed and manufactured in the UK
