Inner Range set to showcase new Mimic Viewer at International Security Expo

Access control solutions developer Inner Range will showcase a new Mimic Viewer for its award-winning Integriti product at the International Security Expo, which takes place in London later this month.

The Mimic Viewer provides a visual ‘read only’ overview of the intelligent Integriti access control and intruder detection system. It allows security staff to view events remotely without passing control of the system off-site.

The Mimic Viewer is a separate installation with its own connection to the controller, which can be Ethernet-based or via the UniBus UART board. This is helpful for those sites that don’t allow networked computers to be left logged in and unattended, or in the case of a network failure.

Tim Northwood, general manager of Inner Range, said: “Mimic panels are a fantastic way of providing a visual overview of a system, allowing rapid comprehension of a situation and response when an emergency occurs. Our Mimic Viewer has the added benefit of being separate from any network, so it will maintain its connection whatever the network status and ensure better levels of security as a result.”

Northwood added: “The International Security Expo is always a great event for showing new and existing customers what our products can do. We’ll be allowing delegates to try out our enterprise and high security products for themselves.”

Inner Range will be offering demonstrations of its scalable enterprise access control system, Integriti, as well as the Integriti High Security Encrypted solution and the Sifer reading technology, MIFARE DESfire EV2. Stand J30 is where Risk Xtra’s readers can find the company at London’s Olympia.

The Integriti system delivers an intelligent integrated security solution ideal for managing and controlling single and multiple sites at the local, national and global levels. It integrates with a wide range of third party systems to become a Physical Security Information Management system, managing not only security and building automation, but also people and business continuity processes such as HR, payroll and Health and Safety.

Integriti Encrypted High Security has all the award-winning features of Integriti with complete end-to-end encryption to 128 bit AES and Mac authentication. It suits defence, Government and other Critical National Infrastructure organisations who need watertight security for counter-terror purposes or other high risk scenarios.

C-TEC, WAGNER, Apollo, Vanderbilt and Kentec Electronics look to make their mark at Security Essen

Security Essen runs from Tuesday 27 September to Friday 30 September in Germany. This year, solution manufacturers C-TEC, WAGNER, Apollo, Vanderbilt and Kentec Electronics all have an array of systems to display alongside key messaging for end users, integrators and installers.

For its part, C-TEC will be showcasing its life-safety systems. Located for the first time in Hall 3, the action-packed area dedicated to fire detection and live demonstrations, C-TEC’s stand (3E14) is set to feature the company’s new CAST-protocol XFP 1-2 loop addressable fire system, the range of VdS-certified EN54-4 power supplies and its powerful 1-8 loop ZFP touchscreen-controlled addressable fire panels.

Also on display will be C-TECs popular BSI-certified conventional sounder isolator system, its new EN54-13 conventional fire alarm system solution and a wealth of other innovations specifically designed for the European market.

C-TECSecurityEssen

Charlotte Manley, C-TEC’s sales director, told Risk UK: “We’re always very excited about Security Essen as it’s a truly international show and attracts visitors from all over the world. C-TEC has invested heavily in third party certification over the past decade, and we’re certainly reaping the rewards in Europe where the demand for certified systems is exceptionally high.”

Visions Become Reality

‘Visions Become Reality’ is the slogan under which WAGNER will be exhibiting at Security Essen. WAGNER’s stand (Hall 3, Stand 3D44) will feature innovative, future-safe fire prevention solutions, including air sampling smoke detectors, extinguishing technology, fire prevention and fire risk management.

WAGNER will be unveiling the TITANUS FUSION, a new all-rounder that combines the successful TITANUS family’s many advantages, such as LOGIC.SENS smoke development patterning and PIPE.GUARD air flow monitoring. The air sampling smoke detector can be used even in dusty environments and is accurate to temperatures as low as -30° C. It can monitor areas up to 3,200 m² in size, and is available in sensitivity levels of 0.5, 0.1 and 0.015 % LT/m.

This year, WAGNER is also introducing the TITANUS MULTI SENS, a pioneering system designed for areas where specific deceptive phenomena (such as cigarette smoke, theatrical fog or dust) can trigger false alarms. This new self-teaching air sampling smoke detector can tell the difference between false alarms and real fires. Visitors can experience this innovative, multi-dimensional optical detection system live in fire experiments.

WAGNERSecurityEssen

WAGNER’s vision of employing nitrogen as an extinguishing agent gave rise to the OxyReduct active fire prevention system. The introduction of this new technology at the end of the 1990s transformed the fire prevention market, as WAGNER began offering OxyReduct active fire prevention rather than reactive extinguishing solutions.

Security Essen will be featuring the newest generation of OxyReduct models: the powerful, compact, modular OxyReduct P-Line for larger protection areas and the noise-optimised, compact OxyReduct M-Line for modular nitrogen generation at rates of 10-90 m³/h.

Apollo to showcase next generation solution

Apollo Fire Detectors, a specialist in the design and manufacture of high quality fire detection products, will be showcasing its comprehensive range of products on Stand 3B14 at Security Essen.

The new SOTERIA range is the next generation in fire detection technology and is designed to improve detection, reduce false alarms and deliver improved reliability. SOTERIA is the start of an ongoing technology innovation at Apollo. The detectors have been extensively tested by members of the Apollo in-house testing team with facilities that boast some of the most advanced private testing equipment in the UK.

Alongside SOTERIA is Apollo’s enhanced protocol named CoreProtocol, the next generation in fire loop communication from Apollo giving greater control and more loop power. The new protocol builds on the established capabilities of XP95 and Discovery; with forward and backwards compatibility and the ability to manage a significantly increased number of devices.

ApolloIntelligentManualCallPoint

As well as the introduction of new products, Apollo will have its new 2016-2017 Product Catalogue available, a crucial guide for anyone who specifies or installs fire detection equipment. The catalogue features all of Apollo’s detection equipment, system components and specialist devices suitable for a wide range of environments.

Vanderbilt aims to be the talk of Security Essen

Vanderbilt will attend Security Essen for the first time this year, and will be exhibiting the latest developments across all three of its product ranges: access control, intruder detection and video surveillance.

At Security Essen, Vanderbilt will feature Aliro 2 – the latest generation of its access control solution. Building on the success of its predecessor and created alongside external developers, Aliro 2 is suitable for small through to medium-sized commercial applications, boasting easy-to-use Internet-based software and intuitive mobile features.

Using the advanced Mercury firmware platform, it supports – as standard – 64 doors and 5,000 users. With additional software licenses, the system can be increased up to 1,024 wired doors, 1,024 wireless doors and 25,000 users. Integration with Aperio is one of the highlights in the new feature set of Aliro 2, but there’s “much more to come” as this new system paves the way for Vanderbilt’s future migration strategy.

VanderbiltIndustries

Vanderbilt’s SPC intrusion panel will also be featured on the stand. Vanderbilt continues to develop attractive features for this range, including its SPC Connect. This cloud-based innovation provides customers with remote access to control panels, safe in the knowledge that the process is highly secure thanks to the implementation of financial grade SSL security.

New to the video portfolio is the Eventys range, a cost-effective range of cameras and recorders that are aimed at the simple set-up and plug-and-play approach. With an intuitive interface offering “outstanding functionality” and flexibility, Eventys is perfect for small to medium-sized installations that require up to 20 cameras.

Compact keypads for SPC intruder detection system introduced by Security Products from Siemens

Security Products from Siemens has introduced two new compact keypads for the SPC intruder detection system. They use touchkeys instead of traditional mechanical keys and the key interface illuminates only when touched.

With a depth of just 17.5 mm, these keypads sit unobtrusively on any wall. Model SPCK520 offers display and speech output while model SPCK521 adds an ID card reader.

The new keypads support EM and MIFARE card technologies. Advanced user authentication eliminates the inconvenience of repeated PIN code entry on systems that are armed and disarmed many times on a daily basis.

End users can download pre-recorded or customised audio files to the keypads. These audible messages assist users when various system events occur.

The large graphical display provides a wealth of information at a glance. For instance, users can access detailed information about doors that are open or ajar and therefore preventing the system from being armed.

The keypads supply system information and offer various ways to configure the parameters of the SPC system on site without additional tools such as a PC.

An optional plug-in RF module allows the keypads to be used as RF receivers for communication with wireless detectors nearby. This eliminates the need for separate RF receivers.

In addition, the keypads have push-wire terminals so that installers can secure the wires of connection cables with a single push action.

For flush mounting, Siemens offers a special frame that allows the keypad to be installed flush with the wall. An optional metal enclosure is available for installation in concrete walls.

The compact keypads are backwards-compatible with existing SPC systems. End users can choose from the eight languages that are supplied as standard with additional language packs available for download.

The SPC intruder detection series offered by Security Products from Siemens combines sophisticated protection against intruders with a cost-effective modular design and installation concept.

SPC systems are scalable up to 512 zones with 120 wireless zones.
