SigNET has launched a new 16-line SigTEL master controller.

Designed for use with our innovative SigTEL system, the ECU-16 features a new-look high-performance handset to allow operators to communicate with up to 16 disabled refuge or fire telephone systems.

In addition, the controller’s powerful networking capabilities allow up to 14 ECU-16 master controllers to be interlinked to create systems of up to 224 lines. A separate ECU-224 desk control unit (available October 2019) can also be connected to allow communication with up to 224 outstations from a single point.

Said Tremayne Crossley, SigNET’s Field Sales Manager: “With its clever networking capacity, the ECU-16 brings huge flexibility and efficiency to our SigTEL range of disabled refuge, fire telephone and stadium marshalling systems as it allows large systems to be created easily and cost-effectively. The unit also features a unique ‘auto-learn’ facility to facilitate fast system setup.”

Compatible with SigNET’s entire range of Type A (Fire Telephone) and Type B (Disabled Refuge) outstations and remote fire telephone handsets, the controller can be easily interfaced to NC951 accessible toilet alarms, PDA hearing loop systems, strobes, CCTV activation relays and more.
