VIBRATING PAGERS & UNDER PILLOW VIBRATING ALARMS - CH/FC1 RANGE

 
 

How are hearing impaired people warned that the fire alarm has been activated?

BS5839 part1 2002 states "...Additional means of giving warning to people with impaired hearing might be appropriate"

This is very important if a hearing impaired person MIGHT visit, work in, or sleep in the premises.

 

CH/FC1-S

The Ch/FC1-S has been extensively tested to detect operation of a commercial fire alarm sounder. The monitor is for use in hotel rooms that have a sounder fitted in the room. A fire alarm sounder should produce 75db of sound at the bed head. The CH/FC1-S will detect such a sounder while ignoring ambient sounds in the room such as TV, radio, people talking, arguing etc up to a sound level of 85db measured at a 1m range.

Operation of the alarm is simple. The CH/FC1-S is mains powered via an AC/DC adaptor that is plugged into a mains outlet in the room. The warning alarm is positioned by the bed, then the vibrating pad is placed under the pillow or mattress. That is it. No costly installation, no wiring and no decor damage.

If the fire alarm goes off, the CH/FC1-S detects the sounder, the vibrating pad and xenon strobe operate to warn the deaf person. The alarm features battery back up with circuit monitoring indication for power failure or adaptor unplugged and sound monitoring circuit failure.

CH/FC1-RX

Simply plug the unit into a mains socket and your bedroom is is linked to the fire alarm system via the Fire Centurian Transmitters. When the alarm is activated a vibrating pad and bright xenon beacon are activated.

The console constantly monitors for radio link failure & power failure (10 hour back-up as standard)

 

CH/FC1-TX

The transmitter is linked to the fire alarm system and is fully compliant with BS5839. The unit transmits a supervisory signal to the console every three minutes. Should the link to the fire alarm be lost the unit will give an audible alarm.

The transmitter has a ‘free air' range of 100 meters.

Additional transmitters or boosters are available where required.
