Leading the Way to Safety
Baldwin Boxall will showcase its next generation EN54-certified VIGIL3 voice alarm system at Firex 2019.
Built on a fault-tolerant Ethernet backbone that requires no Ethernet switches, VIGIL3 adopts a scalable design that abandons a centralised voice alarm router, in favour of modular input and output blocks.
Multiple connectivity options are available for equipment and services (GPIO, Fire panel), including fire-rated CAT5 or CAT6 and multi- or single-mode fire-rated fibre networking which supports up to 64, simultaneous, live audio channels. Modules can be combined as required and used to expand the system to handle up to 400 inputs and 800 outputs.
Backwards-compatible with the company's predecessor VIGIL2 system, the new product features a large format touch screen graphical control and monitoring interface which operates independently of a PC.
Sales and marketing director, Nick Baldwin, describes VIGIL3 as "the most advanced voice alarm system on the market today".
