CYGNUS WIRELESS ALARM SYSTEM – TOP FIVE FACTS

Over the last few years, the Cygnus Wireless Alarm System has protected some of the largest construction projects across the UK including Big Ben, Elephant Park, Embassy Gardens and much more.

A major innovation in wireless emergency fire, first aid, and intruder alarms, the Cygnus Wireless Alarm System has raised the bar in the industry, and is the most successful and adaptable temporary alarm system for use in the construction industry.

Here at Bull, we’re continuously looking at ways to develop our wireless alarm systems to ensure they offer the maximum protection on site and for workers.
We share the top five facts of our wireless alarm system, and why you need one for your next construction project:

1. Wide connection

Did you know Cygnus has been specially designed for use in dense concrete and steel structured buildings, and areas where there are many other radio frequencies in use? Therefore, particular attention has been given to achieving an extremely long-range connection.
Distances in excess of 1.5km have been recorded in an open-air environment. Whilst this range is not guaranteed on site due to limiting obstacles, Cygnus covers impressive distances due to a networking meshing system that allows devices to communicate through one another and not just directly to the panel.

2. Protect the whole site

The alarms can operate in a maximum of 15 zones with up to 32 devices per zone. It’s capable of controlling all zones from a control panel operating on the same frequency but distinguished by different zone addresses. In the case of a real alarm, the message is communicated to every device within the site.
As your site grows with new floors or areas of construction, our easy-to-fit wireless alarm system can grow with it, and as phases of the build are completed, alarms and detectors can easily be moved or removed with minimal damage.

3. Easy installation

Did you know the Cygnus alarm system can be installed in minutes? There’s minimal interference to ongoing construction and no complicated cabling with a wireless alarm. Drilling holes, laying wires, and protecting the cable network from accidental breakages or rodent damage are a thing of the past.
Simple to use, the wireless alarm system is delivered pre-configured to the customer’s request, with clearly marked labels on each device. 

4. Latest technology

Delivering an impressive signal-range, the Cygnus system conforms to EN300 220 Category 1 requirements. Mesh protocol ensures seamless point-to-point and multipoint communication. Our specialist software ensures performance of the system can be optimised with a central control panel. Each control panel reports back on device status and provides condition updates including signal faults and battery usage.

5. Bespoke to your requirements

No matter what your site requirements, the Cygnus wireless alarm system provides an innovative and reliable solution to protect customers and workers. So, whether your site needs an intruder alarm, a first aid alert facility or interface units, our system will ensure you have everything you need to protect workers and your site when and where it matters the most. Additionally, the Cygnus Wireless Alarm can be used in conjunction with turnstiles, lifts, automatic doors, and other monitoring systems.

A total safety solution

At Bull, we’re always looking at ways to protect workers and sites to the highest health and safety standards possible, by providing customers with innovative safety solutions to meet their needs.

The Cygnus Wireless Alarm is a high performance early warning system, suitable for even the largest and most complex of construction sites, and will keep your site and workers safe 24/7.
