Eaton launches EN 54-23 certified open class VAD
Intelligent Addressable Low Power Fire Beacon for European Fire Markets
Eaton has developed an intelligent addressable visual alarm device (VAD) certified to EN 54-23, the harmonised standard for Fire Alarm beacons, available from the 1st March 2015.
EN54-23 specifies the requirements, test methods and performance criteria for VADs (Visual Alarm Devices) in fire detection and fire alarm systems. The new intelligent addressable VAD (CASB393/393WP) is an ‘Open’ class sounder beacon that comes in a standard and weatherproof variant, both of which combine low power requirements, multiple sound output levels and visual notification.
Complies to EN54-23, 3 & 17
Can be used as a Fire Alarm beacon
WP option for more demanding environments
The new open class wall sounder beacon is suitable for system designers who wish to conform to the standard when a fire alarm beacon has been specified as part of an addressable system. It has been designed to offer an alternative to a Wall or Ceiling product, or for when a direct comparison against a competitor Open class product is required.
The open class wall sounder beacon is also available in an IP66 weatherproof variant (right).
