Power supplies for fire stations

C-TEC’s VdS-certified EN54-4 power supplies are performing a vital task at some 22 fire stations in Scotland. The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service called on Safe Services to install CSL DualCom fire units using C-TEC’s BF360-24 power supplies to add remote monitoring to fire systems at its stations. As a result, any faults are now reported to a 24-hour alarm-receiving centre, covering sites across the Borders, West and East Lothian.

Graeme Millar, Director at Safe Services, a Galashiels-based SP203-1 accredited company, said: “As fire legislation in most European countries now states any power supply performing a mandatory function of a fire alarm system must comply with EN54-4/A2, C-TEC’s power supplies were the obvious choice for this project.”
