Biamp earns EN 54-16 for Vocia

AUTHOR: Inavate

Biamp says it will push further into the life safety market after securing EN 54-16 accreditation for its Vocia system. Vocia is a critical paging and mass notification system and the European standard aims to ensure voice alarm control is safe for building users.

“When Biamp considered entering the life safety market, we knew compliance with the European Union’s life safety codes would be necessary to meet the requirements of buildings of the future,” said Graeme Harrison, vice president of International Sales for Biamp Systems.

Biamp claims its new control interface (CI-1) device helped pave the way for Vocia to earn the voice evacuation safety standard approval. The CI-1 works with the Life Safety Interface (LSI-16), an emergency interface between the Vocia critical paging system and emergency and fire alarm systems.
