RCF updates EN54-16 compliant evacuation systems

RCF 9000 evacuation system

RCF highlighted its upgraded VSA and EVAC products, including the DXT 3000, DXT 7000 and DXT 9000 voice evacuation systems, at ISE.

The DXT 9000 now features components including the MU 9186R Master Unit with integrated router and RP 9600 Data Repeater. The MU 9186R has a maximum connection of eight systems, providing a total network of 256 units; twin LAN ports for Digital Audio In (1 channel from external source), and Out (2 channels up to 4 sub-systems or 1 channel from 5 to 8 sub-systems).

The IN 9000 Integrity Network Emergency Console emergency console has also been added to the DXT 9000’s system components, designed as an interface to provide a fully analogue redundancy in the event of interruption by the RCF-Flexicomm bus.

RCF’s DXT 3000 now features a MG 3006 Monitored GPI Board to monitor emergency system GPI, enabling the detection and reporting of any open line or short circuit in the signal path between the DXT 3000 and other alarm devices, such as alarm buttons.

It can trigger both a general or zone evacuation event from alarm devices and send the Reset command to work like a Fire Alarm System. It is powered by 24V DC provided by the MX 3250 main board, and does not require an external supply.

The addition of an IE 3008 Interlink Board furthermore allows connection of up to eight MX 3250 units, in a Master/Slave configuration.
