Intelligent Advanced MxPro 5 fire panels have been specified to protect London’s famous Natural History Museum.

Dubbed the ‘Cathedral of Nature’, the Natural History Museum is well-renowned for its collection of ornate architecture and dinosaurs; many of its irreplaceable items, which are viewed by over five million people on an annual basis, were collected by Charles Darwin. Established in 1881, the centre is widely recognised for natural history and related research.

The Museum’s Grade I Listed building accommodates seven blocks, including the Earth Galleries, the twin Darwin Centres and the original Waterhouse Building.

MxPro 5 fire panels

The Museum is protected by an intelligent fire protection system, designed and configured by Pacific Security Systems: a network of 24 MxPro 5 multiprotocol panels is at the centre of the system, which comprises remote control terminals, a BMS interface and a bespoke PC-based graphical user interface.

Offering backwards compatibility with some of the loop devices already installed at the Museum, MxPro offers flexibility. The product, which has been developed by Advanced, includes two panel ranges: MxPro 5 and MxPro 4. It also offers four protocols – Argus, Apollo, Nittan and Hochiki – and an open installer network, which is supplemented by training and technical support.

MxPro 5 panels are backward compatible with existing MxPro 4 networks. They can be used in single loop, single panel format or configured into larger panel networks, which cover expansive areas.

The panels benefit from TouchControl touchscreen remote control terminals, complete with Active Maps, and AlarmCalm false management technology.
