Innovative alarms, The Cygnus wireless fire alarm system

Newly launched by Bull Products is a major innovation in wireless fire alarms for the Construction Industry.

The Cygnus wireless fire alarm system has been designed and developed in conjunction with a number of major construction companies, such as BAM, ISG and G.B. Building Solutions.

Incorporated are some impressive features required for larger construction projects and as a result, Cygnus has the capability  of linking together no less than 480 units in 15 different zones around a construction site, with each zone having the capacity to accommodate 32 units. The individual units can be fire alarm call points, smoke detectors or heat detectors.

A major feature of the Cygnus system is the optional control panel which provides very sophisticated capability with an event log function which records any events such as an alarm activation, low battery warning, and signal faults, all of which can be viewed if necessary in the history folder held on the panel. The System also has the ability to test all units and has an evacuate function which will act as a call point to the rest of the alarm units.

Each unit in the system carries its own battery pack and the high performance Category 1 radio frequency ensures maximum range even in the presence of other strong local signals. This radio range has been designed and tested in challenging environments for use in concrete and steel structured buildings. Open air tests have also proved the Cygnus system range can exceed 1.5km, although the actual distance on site will vary from project to project.
