The third version of the Nano fire detection control panel from Gent by Honeywell supports all of Gent’s EN54-23 visual alarm devices (VADs) from the S-cubed and S-Quad ranges. These devices are designed to protect deaf or hearing-impaired people and those working in areas with high ambient noise.

EN54-23 was introduced to set stricter guidelines on the installation and performance requirements of VADs.

Nano can control up to 60 loop-powered VADs in standard power mode and provides coverage of C-3-10 for ceiling devices and W-3-8 for wall devices.

The flexibility of Nano includes the option to configure the cause and effect with the spread of fire in a building to meet the operational needs of markets across the world.
