Our SigTEL 16-128 line emergency voice communication system is ideal for use in all medium-to-large sized disabled refuge or fire telephone applications.

In disabled refuge applications, it allows people who cannot easily evacuate a building to communicate with a central control point during a fire emergency. In fire telephone applications, it allows building management, the emergency services and fire marshals to communicate with each other before, during and after a fire.

The system is fully monitored, extremely cost-effective and meets and exceeds the requirements of BS 5839 part 9 when correctly installed.

Our SigTEL 16-128 line EVC system comprises a range of sophisticated control equipment (described below) designed to connect to up to 128 ‘outstations’. Typically located in a building’s control room, the control equipment allows management and/or the fire services to communicate via a telephone-style handset with the system’s ‘outstations’. Two types of outstation are available – Type A (fire telephone-style for fire telephone/stadium marshalling applications) and Type B (handsfree intercom-style for disabled refuge applications). Both types of outstation connect to the system’s controller using two cores of 1.5mm2 enhanced fire rated cable of up to 1km in length.

CONTROL EQUIPMENT:

Our modular 16-128 line control equipment comprises one CCU-16 16 line Master Control Unit and up to seven SCU-16 16 line Slave Expansion Units.

Line cards are not included and MUST be purchased separately. For every two Type A outstations connected, an LC2 2-Way Line Card is required and for every two Type B outstations, an LC3 2-Way Line Card is required.

A separate ECU Desk Controller is also required to allow operators to communicate with the system’s outstations. Three versions are available, the ECU-32, which can control up to 32 lines; the ECU-64 (up to 64 lines) and the ECU-128 (up to 128 lines).

Note, the CCU-16 is supplied with a standard tone card that provides ringing, busy, alert and evacuate tones. If required an SVMM message module can be fitted to provide real speech for the same functions as the standard tone card.

TYPE A ‘FIRE TELEPHONE’ OUTSTATIONS:

Fire telephone and stadium marshal systems use ‘Type A’ telephone-style outstations.

SigTEL’s Type A Outstations comprise the EVC301RPO which includes a telephone handset in a push-to-open red steel cabinet and the EVC301RLK which is exactly the same but with a ‘lift key’ locking mechanism. They are typically located at entrances and fire-fighting lobbies to allow fire marshals to communicate with building control during an emergency. Their housings have openings which allow the phones to be heard and they are designed to be surface or flush mounted using the 301T-BEZ Bezel.

TYPE B ‘DISABLED REFUGE’ OUTSTATIONS:

Disabled refuge systems use ‘Type B’ handsfree intercom-style outstations.

SigTEL’s EVC302 range of Type B outstations offer true hands-free duplex speech and allow anyone in a refuge area to communicate with building control at the touch of a button and vice versa. Attractively finished in brushed stainless steel or green metal, they include connections for an optional induction loop system and a general purpose output that closes on activation of the unit for the optional connection of strobes, CCTV activation relays, etc. Flush, surface and weatherproof options are available.
