Developed in conjunction with major construction companies, the Cygnus system is designed specifically for use on construction sites where the environment demands far higher radio performance than standard systems. The Cygnus system is able to link no less than 480 alarm devices in 15 zones.
The new website has been created to help construction companies specify the exact Cygnus system they would like for a particular project. As well as giving an explanation of the system and its capabilities, there is a full listing of all the control panels and individual alarm units available.
There are also helpful videos to explain the system and its maintenance, and a gallery showing recent installations at places such as BskyB, Crossrail and Scotland Yard together with a number of customer testimonials on projects as well as full case study stories. Also included on the site is a full technical section and servicing advice plus details of the standards relating to the use of fire alarm systems on different types of construction sites and conformity to regulations.
The Cygnus wireless fire alarm system is backed up with an eight-strong customer support team, all profiled on the website, who are there to help customers with their specific requirements, installation and servicing needs.
In the Cygnus family there are a choice of five control panels and 31 alarm units and accessories, all illustrated with their details on the website. A CYG6 control panel has recently been introduced to cater for smaller construction sites, handling 32 alarm devices in a single zone. There is also a control panel available with a GSM modem allowing reporting via SMS text messaging. Another innovation is a PIR option available on all alarm modules to detect intruders and alert off-site personnel for added safety protection.
The Cygnus fire alarm system has an impressive capability of linking up to 480 units across a construction site. Individual units may be either a fire alarm call point, first aid alert point, smoke detector, heat detector or a combined call point/first aid alert alarm. Further capabilities include out-of-hours notifications via an auto-dialling panel to key-holders. Cygnus has been specifically designed for use in dense concrete and steel structured buildings, and areas where there are many other radio frequencies in use. Particular attention has been given therefore to achieving an extremely long range connection and distances in excess of 1.5km have been recorded in an open air environment. Cygnus thus covers impressive distances and huge areas due to a meshing system which allows devices to communicate through one another and not directly to the panel.
Bull Products offers a full one-year guarantee on all Cygnus devices and provides high levels of technical, on-site and after-sales service support in addition to its standard maintenance contracts.
