Our Quality Manager has been enthusing about recent EMS audits that he has carried out on one of our sites in central London. He describe the systems as fuss free, with the wireless systems being perfectly suited for listed buildings. Highlights of these systems include aesthetically pleasing and discreet detectors, which are fully addressable. The great bonus in his eyes is that the detectors can come as a combi, with the ability to disable and re-enable functions at will. The standardisation of the EMS panel now allows the use of it across both wireless and non-wireless systems, allowing a hybrid of systems to be installed.
HAE prefer the FireCell range which is EN54 Part 25/ EN300-220 compliant. The system performance supersedes any other wireless system which HAE have come into contact with and due to the ability to not use fire rated cable, complies with HAE's Green Policy. Each panel can monitor a maximum of 512 devices, and Radio cluster communicators can extend the range to cover sprawling buildings.
