Hochiki Europe has announced a new perfect fit partnership which will enable its most sophisticated addressable multi-sensor device, the ACD, to be compatible with the MxPro 5 range of addressable fire control panels from Advanced Electronics. This new partnership with Advanced Electronics allows Hochiki’s ACD addressable loop-powered multi-sensor, with smoke, heat and CO sensing elements to be installed in even more projects than was previously possible. Schools, hospitals, accommodation, commercial premises, cultural properties and beyond will now benefit from greater choice when it comes to choosing the latest in life safety technology.
Both the ACD multi-sensor and MxPro 5 panel systems include several features that make this new partnership the perfect product and panel fit for the smallest to the largest of sites. Advanced Electronics’ MxPro 5 range is their highest performance analogue addressable fire panel range to date, approved to EN54 Parts 2, 4 and 13 and certified by FM approvals to EN54 Parts 2 and 4. There are 24 modes of operation in the Hochiki ACD multi-sensor, detecting smoke, heat, CO and the threat of COHb poisoning, all fully supported by the MxPro 5 panels. There is also a Reduced False Alarm function (+RFA), where the sensor will automatically adjust the sensitivity of the optical sensing element over time, learning from its surrounding environment from the moment of installation. This allows the installer to ‘fine-tune’ the product to work perfectly with MxPro 5 panel and more importantly for the environment to which it is being fitted.
Commenting on the partnership, Nathan Hudson, Hochiki Europe’s Sales and Marketing Director said “It is imperative that installers and end users get the greatest choice across the market when selecting fire detection products and systems. Not only to ensure the best products are used to protect people and property, but also to ensure budgets are met, especially important on complex projects. We’re really excited by this partnership with Advanced Electronics as it means even more customers around the globe now have access to the most sophisticated and innovative life safety technology on the market which can be perfectly tailored to their projects”
