    hi guys

    I’ve just installed a Fike twinflex, last fire system I done was a few years ago now. And I didn’t need a laptop to Commission, I’ve just finshed it all and ready to Commission but the manual says I need a laptop with File software is this right??? I don’t really want to do another fire system as I found it hard work on my own. I really don’t want to buy the software either (tight arse I know)

    Any help on the horizon would be great

    Thanks fellow sparks

    We sometimes fit these, the software part has always been optional to speed up installation. What is the model? I hate the twinflex pro panel as you have to program it slowly or it gets confused if you push the buttons too fast!

    Does this mean I don’t need to buy the software?

    Yes, no software needed. Do have a look at the manual before programming though, and the write protect switch at the top needs to be switched off when programming, then back on when done. Very frustrating these panels.
    I think this was the last one I did. 20170706_190619.jpg

    I see a huge difference between these two pics. #5 very well installed, #3 cables not glanded and contained in non flame retardant pvc trunking as I assume no further fixing within the trunking.
