Eaton simplifies fire systems with BiWire Ultra and CPD training

Eaton is aiming to simplify the installation of fire alarm systems in smaller premises with the launch of a two-wire system. The company’s latest fire alarm system, BiWire Ultra, is designed for fast and efficient installation in buildings such as primary schools, small hotels, offices, restaurants and retail stores where a standard conventional system would have typically been installed.

However, unlike standard conventional systems, the BiWire Ultra enables all detectors, Call Points and notification devices to share the same zone wiring, thereby reducing cabling requirements by up to 50%.

To support the launch of the new system, Eaton has developed a new CPD certified seminar on two-wire systems. The CPD aims to help electrical engineers and installers better understand the different types of fire systems available and how two-wire can save costs compared with a conventional system.

Chris Anderson, business leader for fire products at Eaton, told Risk UK: “Our new BiWire Ultra system has been designed with simplicity in mind. It’s quick and easy to install, reducing cabling costs and the time spent programming and operating the system. Feedback from our customers so far has been extremely positive.”

EatonBiWire

Intuitive fire alarm control panel

BiWire Ultra comprises an intuitive fire alarm control panel alongside a range of complementary devices including Call Points, a five-in-one fire detector plus a range of EN5423-approved beacons and sounder beacons.

BiWire Ultra is the latest addition to Eaton’s comprehensive suite of life safety solutions, which aim to help building owners and managers meet their safety obligations in the most effective and efficient manner.

Available in two-, four- or eight-zone variants, the system can support up to 52 devices per zone. Wiring faults are easily found by initiating a flashing LED indicator on the detector nearest the fault.

Supplied with a back-up battery to ensure the correct ratings and reduce complexity, the central panel has an attractive appearance and a simple user interface. Conforming to the requirements of BS 5839-1, commissioning and maintenance is straightforward. It’s easy for one person to carry out testing and ensure the healthy state of the system, as is required by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order of 2005.

Additional functionality of the system includes a class change facility for schools, which automates the class change bell via the fire alarm, expansion card support for fire alarm routing equipment and fire protection equipment and an interlink relay for connecting two panels together.

Anderson added: “The BiWire Ultra range is the first of its type to offer EN5423-approved beacons so, whatever the risk assessment, premises fitted with a BiWire Ultra system comply with the latest standards for fire notification. However, the legal and moral obligations of fire safety are not only concerned with installation, but also ongoing maintenance and testing. BiWire Ultra is designed to make that process straightforward. With all of this in mind, we believe this range will appeal to a diverse cross-section of small and medium-sized premises where owners need protection without problems.”

British innovation drives demand for UK-developed security solutions in Asia

Technological innovation within the UK’s security sector is driving demand for British-made technology among Asian buyers. That’s the view of members of the British Security Industry Association’s (BSIA) Export Council, many of whom are currently preparing to exhibit at IFSEC South East Asia in September.

IFSEC South East Asia offers expertise and guidance for the security sector in the region. This year’s event is to be held in Kuala Lumpur between 3-5 September.

The event is billed by organiser UBM as the focal point for 8,000 security solutions buyers and decision-makers who attend for a wide range of reasons, ranging from reviewing the latest products and innovations through to building business partnerships and making deals.

Running alongside the exhibition is an education programme – part of the IFSEC Global Academy – that attracts senior purchasers looking to gain an overview of the market and the latest technological developments.

A key driver of demand for UK products and services is the technological innovation demonstrated by British manufacturers. This will be showcased at the 2014 event by three BSIA member companies scheduled to exhibit as part of the BSIA-organised UK Pavilion. The company’s are GJD Manufacturing, Metham Aviation Design and TDSi.

IFSEC South East Asia 2014 is an important event for British manufacturers

On display at GJD Manufacturing’s stand – Hall 4 Stand UK13 – will be the company’s state-of-the-art dual-tech anti-masking curtain detector which uses microwave and PIR sensors with integral anti-masking detection to create an invisible curtain beam pattern to protect an end user’s property against crime.

Launched at the show by GJD will be Harper Chalice’s FenceSecure™ electronic perimeter intrusion detection systems. Coupled with GJD’s innovative range of external PIR and dual-tech motion detectors, a comprehensive product offering is now available that truly offers the first and second lines of defence for any perimeter requirement.

Requirement for visibility and intuitive operation

Meanwhile, TDSi will be showcasing its new reader range following the initial launch at IFSEC International in June. Included in the line-up are new versions of TDSi’s MIFARE CSN (Chip Serial Number) and its proximity readers, which have been updated to combine end users’ needs for visibility and intuitive operation with the aesthetic ability to fit in with modern architecture and surroundings.

TDSi’s managing director John Davies commented: “Readers are an essential part of most secure access control systems. We have been talking extensively with our customers, end users and partners to ascertain what would best suit the needs of the real world. As well as the need for using the latest technology, the feedback we received revealed that often more basic elements, such as the shape and size of the reader, are extremely important.”

BSIA members are seeing an upsurge in demand from the South East Asian region, with respondents to a recent BSIA survey reporting that business has increased in the region over the past 12 months. Among the customers served by UK exporters in the area are Critical National Infrastructure providers, with BSIA members beating tough international competition to win business in the region.
