Apollo Fire Detectors Launches New EN54-11 Approved Manual Call Points
MUMBAI -- Apollo's new, extensive collection of EN54-11:2001 compliant manual call points has been designed and manufactured exclusively in-house by the company's team of industry-leading experts, engineers and technicians.
Currently available in XP95, Discovery and Waterproof variants, the new call points feature a convenient re-settable element for quick and easy testing: a single ergonomically-designed tool is used for both the test and reset procedures. Installation is further eased with front-facing addressing, meaning there is no need to detach it from the backbox which is supplied as standard for simple surface mounting.
The products are also loop-powered and feature 'E-Z fit' connectors to reduce and speed up wiring requirements, and have a continuity link to allow system wiring and testing prior to call point connection.
Customers can choose whether to have an isolator included with the manual call points, which would eliminate the need for additional, separate isolation devices; isolator versions are also EN54-17 compliant. A two-colour LED on the front clearly displays 'normal' or 'fault' status for each device, and the highly visible alarm indicator can be seen from up to 10 metres away. The new call points are fully backwards compatible and can be retro-fit, and can also be supplied with an optional transparent cover to prevent accidental operation.
Further variants of Apollo's new manual call points will be made available in the future, including: AlarmSense, Conventional, Intrinsically Safe, Marine, SIL and Coloured variants. Apollo has also created videos to demonstrate and aid installation of the products, which can be viewed on the company's website (www.apollo-fire.co.uk/video) or YouTube channel
