Kidde Fire Trainers

Modular software speeds up development time for fire training simulators:

Kidde Fire Trainers are a leading provider worldwide for hot-fire training simulators. Operating globally from their facilities in the UK, Germany and the USA, their clients boast many national fire services, airports and private sector businesses. Due to expanding demand, the company was experiencing a shortfall of resource, time and expertise internally.

Flexible and knowledgable systems integrator:

This drastically increased the timescales involved with product and software learning curves for internal staff. Kidde Fire Trainers needed a Systems Integrator with an in depth understanding of their requirements for standardisation and modularisation of software. They also needed a Systems Integrator with the flexibility and the ability to be involved throughout the development life cycle.

At the first level, we were able to solve the problems in hand with our awareness of the latest technologies and software packages. Our advice on tailoring these to the standardisation and modularisation of their software proved key. Our approach also created the flexibility and ability to be involved throughout the development life cycle. This was crucial to developing an intuitive, effective end product within the time constraints.

Attention to detail and aftersales service:

Our approach, product knowledge, attention to detail and responsive after sales support were really appreciated. The pay-off for Kidde Fire was enhanced development, continuous improvement and a trusted working relationship. As a result, Kidde Fire Services have been working with InControl for a number of years. Through our continued work with them as a partner, they find our knowledge of the latest technologies to be “excellent”. We enable them to make well-informed decisions on what they can offer to their clients. We are a trusted partner and work with them as a team, aiding the continual development, refinement and improvement of their product range.

Kidde Fire Trainers said:

“InControl Systems have just completed design, development and commissioning for a completely new standard system for our high-end fire training products, utilising a distributed Mitsubishi PLC system and Wonderware’s System Platform. The project was executed professionally, within the time constraints and is operating exactly as intended. The effectiveness and intuitiveness of the new system has helped to ensure the future potential of the product and the desired end user satisfaction.
Over the years that we have worked with them, InControl Systems have displayed professionalism, unrivalled product knowledge, an extremely flexible approach and very responsive after sales support. I would have no hesitation in recommending InControl Systems to any company in need of a good all round systems integrator.”
