The Euro Mini is our
entry level hard-wired control panel. It is a non expandable 10 input panel with 3 outputs which can be changed
to up to 7 outputs by swapping inputs for outputs. It is a professional metal control panel and
comes complete with a keypad. Euro Mini
has four level setting modes and is
also available with setting prox as
an option. The Euro Mini is suitable
for installations to PD6662:2010
As an entry level panel the Euro Mini
is a very professional product and
includes a number of useful features
including Intelligent Set.
Intelligent Set allows the
automatically set the
appropriate setting mode
based on the users
actions. It simply looks to
see if the front door is
opened during the exit
time. If it is, the system will full set, if not the system will part set. This is a very popular
feature and makes using the alarm easier for
many end users.
The award winning Enforcer Wireless Control Panel uses two way technology from Pyronix.
The unique bidirectional wireless technology offers some
fantastic and revolutionary features that offer both the end
user and the installer a faster, more powerful and
reliable wireless solution.
Bidirectional wireless firstly offers PIR detectors without the need for a battery saving sleep timer. In fact
the detector is aware if the panel is set or not and
will behave accordingly. If the panel is set, the detector will be
awake just as a wired detector would be but if the system is unset, the detector is put to
sleep so only the important supervision messages will be sent, not unnecessary motion
Also two way radio allows for only one message be sent each time. A one way wireless
system sends many messages as it has no way of know if the message was received if it
was perhaps sent at the same time as another device. Sending the signal many times works
but is wasteful of battery power. When a bidirectional device sends a signal, the control
panel send an acknowledgement of receipt so the device does not need to send any more
messages. Equally though if the message does not get through, the device will send more
messages to ensure the message is received, but only when necessary.
Bidirectional wireless also allows us to send signal strength messages to the devices. This
makes for fast and efficient installations allowing the installing engineers to see signal
strengths as they are fitting the devices and no need to run back to the panel each time to
check a good quality signal.
Euro-76, as the name suggests takes you to 76 inputs but also allows for extra expansion.
The Euro-76 has a removable MSX card which is like the brain of the
panel and this can be replaced with the MSX-162 or MSX-280. These
then allow the panel to be expanded up to 280 inputs. With this extra
expansion also allows for more of other devices also.
The panel can
now support 14 areas, up to 30 setting points and 16 output modules offering up to 256
Introducing EN50131/PD6662 Compliant Panels for 2012
The Euro range is the third generation of Euro-MERiDIAN control panels, enhanced to meet the demands of end-users and installers facing the security challenges of the 21st Century.
If you are looking for a manufacturer of EN50131 compliant panels (EN50131-1:2006+A1:2009 and PD6662:2010) then you have come to the right place here at Castle. We have been designing and manufacturing burglar alarms that meet European Standards for over a decade. Also, working along with the Police, we strive to reduce false alarms and our burglar alarm systems will meet the ACPO (Association of Chief Police Officers) requirements of BS8243 when installed by an NSI or SSAIB installer. This will then enable you to get police response to your property if a suitable communicating device is fitted into the control panel.
With a host of accessories, the Euro range offers maximum flexibility and ensures that each Euro system can be individually tailored to the required application, whether a house, small business or large commerical site. The new generation Euro control panels are the ideal solution for all EN50131-1 Grade 2 and Grade 3 installations, with the Euro Mini offering a Grade 2x solution for domestic properties.
The Castle Care-Tech range of intruder detection control systems is designed for the smallest domestic home right through to the largest commercial applications.
The majority of false alarms (around 67% according to Police statistics) are caused by users who make mistakes when setting or un-setting the alarm. This is especially true of occasional users, both domestic (a neighbour looking after your home) and commercial (where the last person to leave the premises may vary from day to day).
Each user Key-fob and/or Card can be specifically programmed to set the intruder system the way you want to without all the fuss of 'options'. The Castle Care-Tech TaG (Touch and Go) method of setting and un-setting your system can dramatically reduce false alarms.
