New Time-Saving Features in FireUtils® v1.06


The latest release of our fire system programming and diagnostics application has new features that simplify maintenance and installation.

FireUtils® makes it easy to configure, analyse, and maintain very large, complex fire alarm installations based on the F120A panel. New features in version 1.06 complement the tree-structured system display and spreadsheet-like object editing grids that make FireUtils® so easy to use.

We are especially excited about FireUtils® “IOTrace” (Input / Output trace). A mouse-click is all it takes to bring up a graphic display showing the links between objects such as detectors, groups, logic blocks, and LEDs. As we explain below, our technical support team demonstrated the value of IOTrace during the development of FireUtils® version 1.06.

Another powerful new feature is the ability to select and edit multiple items in the object grid editors. Users can select any number of items, either as a contiguous block, or by selecting one object at a time. A single change will affect all selected items.

Also in version 1.06 we have made it easier to analyse reports and history logs. These data tables can now be filtered according to user-specified criteria.

The trend toward bigger facilities is driving demand for larger, more complex fire detection and alarm systems. A superior programming and diagnostic tool like FireUtils® delivers huge benefits on large, complex projects. Even on smaller projects, FireUtils® improves quality and reduces cost.

Pertronic FireUtils® is free to authorised customers and can be downloaded from our website.
