New Dutch building choses Advanced fire detection
The first phase of a new technology complex in the Dutch city of Nijmegen is projected by Advanced Electronics Mx-4000 fire-alarm control panels interfaced to over 500 devices.
FiftyTwoDegrees, so called because its latitude is 52° North, is 86 m high and has a total floor area of 43 000 m2.
The Mx-4000 panels were installed throughout the building by local partner Hertek and interconnected using Ad-NeT+, Advanced’s fault-tolerant network, which enables the status of all 500 devices to be interrogated on any panel.
These panels have sophisticated cause-and-effect programmability and powerful I/O capability, which is used to provide an external interface to other systems, including elevator fire control and smoke dampers.
