CYGNUS INTERFACING WITH OTHER SYSTEMS

MORGAN SINDALL & BAM NUTTAL USE CYGNUS WIRELESS ALARM SYSTEM WITH INTERFACE DEVICES.

The Cygnus CYGIOU interface unit has been successfully incorporated into the Morgan Sindall project at UCL (University College London). Morgan Sindall are currently carrying out major refurbishment to the University’s buildings in Northampton Square and UCL requested the temporary units be interconnected with the existing college fire alarm system.

Bull Products were proud to recommend the CYGIOU Cygnus Input/output interface which is the only temporary wireless alarm system suitable for site use, having this capability.

The CYGIOU has been connected to the Advanced Electronics 4 loop panel and provides a delayed output when the Cygnus system is activated, giving time for security staff to check with site management that it is not a false alarm before evacuating the college buildings.

The CYGIOU has also been successfully fitted to release the access turnstiles on the BAM Nuttal / Taylor Woodrow joint venture site at London’s Victoria Station. The site access leads directly onto a busy road and the station upgrade work required a secure access point while also allowing the safe evacuation and entry for the emergency services, if required.

Three CYGIOU interfaces were incorporated at the site, allowing the turnstiles to ‘free-spin’ in the event of an alarm. The Cygnus system’s unique protocol ensures the battery and signal strength is monitored and should anyone tamper with the units, alerts will be sent to security control.
