There is a lot to consider when deciding on new fire alarm technology. Whether you are installing a new fire alarm system or adding to an existing system, flexibility is a crucial consideration in order to prepare for future building requirements and/or technology changes. Adaptations and technology upgrades to satisfy changing code regulations can often be the most significant expenses associated with life safety systems after installation. It is important to learn how your system can handle these adaptations and how much it will cost to upgrade and maintain your new system. Learning the difference between proprietary and non-proprietary fire alarm systems will help you to avoid unnecessary expenses during upgrades or expansions.
For more than 40 years, Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) batteries have been the go-to solution for security, fire, access and surveillance system back-up, but now there’s a new and extremely efficient option available that changes everything.
In challenging applications such as large-scale buildings and areas with high ambient-noise levels, this addressable fire alarm and emergency voice system has the high power to meet intelligibility requirements without the need for additional speaker wire routed to a main unit.
This power supply offers a complement of intelligent features operating with security, fire and access control systems, including a Fire Alarm Control Panel interface with supervised disconnect, over voltage protection and low power shutdown – which prevents standby batteries from deep discharge.
