Eaton Offers the Perfect Package with its i-on16 kits


MITCHELDEAN Power management company Eaton today announced the availability of a new range of specially configured kits from its security business, which are based around its proven i-on16 radio intruder alarm control panel.  Designed to provide installers with all the equipment needed for a diverse range of applications, the kits are available in four variants – Essential, Audible, Communicating or Complete.

Reliable, robust and cost effective, the i-on16 is a PD6662:2010 Grade 2 solution and features 16 radio zones that utilise Eaton’s combined dual diversity antenna system. Uniquely, i-on16 provides radio outputs as standard, which means that end users can benefit from wire-free automation of their lighting, gates and power. Furthermore, it uses remote keypads that, as well as being more secure, allow for cleaner and more discreet installations. i-on16 has recently been upgraded to support wired inputs, meaning this hybrid system now offers even greater flexibility than before.

As its name suggests, the Essential kit offers all the basic equipment needed for an installation and is comprised of an i-on16 control panel, a KEY-KPZ01 keypad with two wired zones, a 734r radio door contact, three XCELRPT radio pet tolerant PIRs and five PROXTAGPK5 proximity tags. The Audible kit adds a 760es two-way radio sounder, while the Communicating version adds a FOB-2W-4B two-way key fob, an i-SD01 speech dialler, a XCELWPT wired pet tolerant PIR and a WDC01 wired door contact. Finally, the Complete version includes all of the products found in the other kits in one package.

The i-on16 kits are also included in Eaton’s new look touchpoint membership programme. As well as providing installation partners with access to first-class information, instant online access to product manuals and software and technical support, it offers the chance to participate in a reward based incentive scheme that allows them to save touchpoints and choose from a selection of great prizes.

All i-on16 kits have 1,200 touchpoints. Installing three qualifying kits is enough to receive a £10 voucher that can be used in a number of leading restaurants, high street stores and leisure activities. Alternatively, the points can be saved and redeemed against a wide selection of products including Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One game consoles, TVs, home entertainment systems, coffee makers and watches. A range of Apple products is up for grabs too, including iPads, iPad Minis, iPod Touches and iPod Nanos.

Matthew Phelps, managing director of Eaton’s Security business, commented, “The i-on16 kits have been configured following extensive consultation with our installers and surveyors to establish the most popular combinations of products. The result is a selection of easy-to-use, install and maintain systems that are perfect for residential and small commercial applications. Purchasing these kits also adds value to the touchpoint membership programme, which has quickly become the industry’s leading information, technical support and rewards package.’
