ZFP 1-8 Loop Touchscreen Controlled Fire Panels
C-TEC's ZFP CAST 1-8 loop touchscreen-controlled fire panels

C-TEC’s super-advanced ZFP CAST 1-8 loop touchscreen-controlled fire panels represent a revolution in fire alarm system technology.

Certified to EN54-2, 4 and 13, they can be configured to suit any application ranging from a small ‘one out, all out’ system to a large multi-loop 64 node networked system with sophisticated cause and effects.

Everything about the ZFP’s unique full-colour touchscreen has been designed with its users in mind. Simply tap the option you require and away you go.

Powerful diagnostics, rapid loop learn, ‘SafeMode’ and a unique ‘DeviceManager’ function further combine to make the ZFP one of the most powerful control panels on the market.

  • A feature-rich touchscreen-controlled addressable fire panel with 1, 2 or 4 C-TEC CAST compatible loop drivers.
  • Third-party certified to EN54 parts 2, 4 and 13.
  • Multiple off-the-shelf variants or build your own panel using our ZFP selection charts.
  • Rapid loop learn, flexible cause & effects and powerful system diagnostics.

General information

‘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. Now available to purchase, its key features include:

• 255 devices per loop.
• 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 2021.
• Volumes, tones & detector modes can be changed at compatible panels.
• High-speed data transmission and robust data transfer.
• 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.
• ENVISION Enabled – fully compliant with our new ENVISION Cloud-based Fire ‘IoT’ Remote Access, System Test and Site Management software package.
• Designed and manufactured in the UK.
