Hi Richard
Do you know if there is any way to prevent a Gent Vigilon system reverting to sector 1 in the event of loss of loop configuration- such as a NVM failure? I  would like to protect a critical installation by cutting the power - but only for a defined cause and effect and no unwanted shutdowns would be tolerable.

Hi Kurnal,

The Gent panels will always revert to Sector 1 if a recovery faliure occurs. If you do not want certain shutdowns to occur these interfaces need to be placed in a sector that is not actioned by sector 1. i.e. remove sector linking from that particular sector from secto1. Then when the devices default to sector 1 the interfaces will not be triggered from an activation in sector 1. However they will still shotdown on activations from other programmed sectors.

Hope this helps.

You can't get full engineer access without their code though but yes they do use Morley and Apollo.

The best thing to do is just contact Gent and let them do it.

Just to remain completely unbiased, You can get a list of Gent System Integrators from Honeywell Gent or look in any of the Fire Service directories.  I know of at least 5 in  Greater London and I worked for one of them once upon a time......

Failing that, I am always willing to help..........And I am even Cheaper:-)

In Northern Ireland, chubb are no longer using morley. Haven't for about 3 or 4 years. We use mainly kentec (solo's/signum's???)

We are predominantly using a company called ampac for all our addressable.

I also thought that chubb engineer codes were the best known around!!

if any one needs help with GENT panels then contact a company called tecservuk

web address is www.tecservuk.com    they are GENT approved and now a hell of a lot of stuff, give them a try
May as well just hand over your credit card as well, oh and pray that the panel doesn't need spares as even those in stock at the wholesaler 5 mins up the road will take 6 weeks to get hold of at a massively inflated rate. Seem to do a good number on speedboat sponsorship though - always good to see where the money goes.
