History

F40 addressable fire alarm control panel

Pertronic F40 addressable panel

Pertronic Industries was established in 1982 to develop and manufacture advanced niche-market electronic products. The company’s first contribution to fire protection in New Zealand was the development and production of power supplies for the New Zealand Fire Service’s control and communications equipment.

The first automatic fire alarm control panel designed and built by Pertronic Industries was the F30, launched in 1986. This highly successful product used conventional detection technology, and was installed in thousands of buildings throughout New Zealand during the 1980s and 1990s.

In 1991 Pertronic Industries developed equipment for the New Zealand National Alarm Transport System (ATS), which enabled automatic fire alarm systems to be monitored from remote locations. The LTX data-over-voice communication equipment was first produced in early 1991 and remained in production for almost ten years.

Also in 1991, Pertronic Industries launched the F40, an advanced fire alarm control panel for larger facilities. The F40’s addressable detection technology assigned a unique digital address to each small group of fire detectors. Based on this technology, the F40 was able to clearly identify the source of an alarm in the event of a fire.

During the late 1990s Pertronic Industries introduced a new range of microprocessor-controlled conventional fire alarm control panels for small to medium-sized facilities. Conventional detection technology allows a fire alarm control panel to identify any “zone” which contains an active smoke alarm. Although not as precise as addressable detection technology, conventional technology is more than adequate for many smaller buildings and facilities. The high quality Pertronic F1, F4, and F16 conventional panels quickly became popular with fire alarm specialists. Updated versions of these products still dominate the market for conventional automatic fire detection systems in New Zealand.

Analogue addressable detection technology was introduced to the Pertronic product range during the late 1990s with the launch of the F100A and F120A fire alarm control panels, replacing the F40. Analogue addressable devices are individually addressable. In addition, analogue addressable devices measure quantities such as temperature or the amount of smoke in their vicinity. The devices digitally encode these measurements and report the encoded data to the fire alarm control panel. With this technology, the Pertronic F100A and F120A can recognise and respond to information from each individual detector.

Following the introduction of these new panels, the Pertronic analogue addressable product range was progressively expanded to include networking, remote monitoring and diagnostics, interfacing with business management systems (BMS), graphics, and paging systems.

Pertronic Industries opened its first Australian office in Melbourne in 1999. This move coincided with the introduction of an Australian version of the Pertronic F100A, which was one of the first fire alarm control panels approved under a new Australian fire alarm standard, AS 4428.1.

Pertronic Industries achieved ISO 9001 certification for its head office quality management systems in 2004.

We have continued to expand and improve our product range to satisfy the ever-changing requirements of modern construction projects.
