Multiprotocol fire panels specified for rail vehicle factory

  • 4 Mar 2015

Hitachi’s new manufacturing facility will benefit from the protection provided by Advanced’s MxPro multiprotocol fire panels

The facility has been built to construct InterCity Express trains that will run on the Great Western and East Coast Main Lines.

The new establishment was fitted with Advanced’s MxPro 4 fire panel range for protection: the five-panel network will cover all areas of the facility.

The multiprotocol fire panels, which have been designed to be flexible and easy to use, were specified by CDS Security and Fire, the security installer for the project.

The factory’s new five-panel network is made up from over 900 components, including over 200 smoke detectors and 150 sounder beacons.

An aspirating system has also been included.

The panels will be connected with a high speed network and interfaced with a PC-based graphical control system. They will also be linked with supporting Apollo devices.

MxPro multiprotocol fire solution

MxPro multiprotocol fire solution offers customers a choice of two panel ranges, four detector protocols and an open installer network.

The panels can be used in a single loop, single panel format or configured into a multi-loop network.

MxPro 4 complies with EN54 Parts 2 and 4, whilst MxPro 5 has been EN54 2, 4 and 13 approved.
