COASTAL HOTEL & SPA STOPS FALSE ALARMS WITH NITTAN

Nittan’s Evolution EV-DP Dual Wavelength Photoelectric smoke detectors have been installed into The Cliff Hotel & Spa in Cardigan, West Wales by Fire and Security Alarms Ltd. (FAS) Carmarthen.

The Cliff Hotel & Spa is a large family-owned hotel featuring 70 en-suite bedrooms, spa and gym facilities, function suite and a golf course.  As part of a hotel wide refurbishment project, the existing fire alarm system has been removed and replaced with a sophisticated Nittan Evolution system featuring 260 Nittan devices, including over 200 EV-DP smoke detectors.  The system runs on four loops controlled by an Advanced Electronics control panel.
 
Nittan Dual Wavelength Photoelectric smoke detectors were selected by installer Fire and Security Alarms Ltd. (FAS) to prevent further issues of false alarms that the hotel had been experiencing previously.  The primary cause of these had been steam escaping from the en-suite bathrooms and activating the smoke alarms.
 
As an NSI Gold, BAFE and NICEIC approved contractor, Fire and Security Alarms Ltd. (FAS) has built its business on the of quality of its services, providing effective fire and security solutions to customer’s requirements, including The Cliff Hotel where it identified Evolution EV-DP smoke detectors as an ideal solution to the false alarm issue.
 
Nittan Evolution EV-DP smoke detectors have been designed to reduce false alarms caused by non-combustion products such as steam, dust and aerosols.  Unlike other industry standard (single optical sensor) smoke detectors on the market that claim to distinguish between smoke and non-combustion products, the EV-DP effectively measures the actual particle size in the chamber via its combined IR and blue LED technology.  As steam and dust are much larger particles than smoke, the detector won’t give a false alarm.
 
Nittan EV-DP alarms are not just highly resistant to false alarms, but come with a number of key features and benefits, including their use of a sophisticated and highly flexible Sine Wave FSK protocol for data transfer to and from the panel.  This protocol also allows for substantial amounts of information to be transmitted back to the panel at very high speeds.  Furthermore, they come with a 360 degree OMNIVIEW LED indicator, permitting clear and visible indication of the sensor's operation from any angle.  Increased EMC immunity is also achieved by the inclusion of a “Bandpass Discriminator Circuit” which is built into every sensor head and loop device.
 
The Nittan Group has been at the forefront of the international fire protection industry since 1954 and has sales, R&D and manufacturing bases in four countries, including the UK. The company continuously innovates and strives for exceptional quality products that meet the highest of standards.

Device Choice & Panel Support

Dear Nittan Customer,
 
As part of Nittan's continued commitment to improve device choice and panel support we are pleased to announce the availability of our NEW “–ve” Short Circuit Isolator base EV-B-SCI and a DIN rail mount “–ve” Short Circuit Isolator EV-DIN-SCI, both isolate the negative line only.
 
Following the successful expansion of Nittan Evolution support to include all Advanced MXPro5 (MX5000) panel variants. Nittan have taken the decision to not support new devices and additional features on the older MX4000 range. Therefore only the MXPro5 panels have been configured to work with Nittan “-ve” line short circuit isolators.

Whilst the MXPro5 will recognise and work with the “-ve” SCI devices the MX4000 will not.
The MX4000 panels will continue to support existing devices and our older style “+ve” line isolators only. If the new –ve SCI devices are inadvertently installed on an existing MX4000 panel they will not be recognised and will flagged by the panel as an “unknown device”.
 
Whilst the older +ve SCI devices will operate without trouble on the MXPro5 panels, this is not recommended as it will limit future device choice to only older +ve isolator styles and may not be fully supported going forward.
 
Please note: for technical reasons +ve and –ve isolator styles cannot be mixed on a system.
Therefore, Nittan's recommendation is:
 
MX4000 panel
Use Only “+ve SCI” devices such as SCI-5 Base Isolator and SCI-6 Boxed Isolator.
 
MXPro5 panel
Use Only “–ve SCI” devices, such as EV-B-SCI Base Isolator, EV-DIN-SCI DIN Rail mount Isolator plus the soon to be launched MCP c/w Isolator and VAD c/w Isolator devices. In addition all future new Short Circuit Isolator device developments shall be “–ve SCI” only.
 
Please do not hesitate to contact Nittan Technical Support for more details and information on panel compatibility.

Nittan Europe launches Smoke Sensors with Integral Sounder

Nittan Europe Limited., a leading UK manufacturer of conventional and addressable fire detection products, has launched a new analogue addressable photoelectric smoke sensor with built in sounder.

Unlike other smoke sensors on the market which require a separate sounder base to be installed which adds to the cost of the installation and takes longer to fit, the Evolution EV-PS optical smoke sensor comes with the sounder fully integrated within the sensor itself. Extremely competitively priced, the EV-PS allows for quick and simple installation, saving both time and money.

But it's not only the installer that benefits from the new EV-PS, as integrating the sounder in the unit makes for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance, with a lower profile for an unobtrusive appearance.

Even with its compact size, the EV-PS still incorporates the latest sophisticated alarm technology for exceptional reliability and performance, including ASIC design, EEPROM addressable capability, low monitoring current and a chemically etched stainless steel insect screen to reduce ingress of insects and airborne contaminants.

For ease of use, the EV-PS features Nittan Europe's OMNIVIEW 360 degree LED fire alarm indicator, permitting clear and visible indication of the sensor's operation from any angle, and a remote indicator output.

The EV-PS is compatible with Nittan Europe UB-4-EV and EV-PSBCN bases.
