Chemical plant selects multiprotocol panels

16 April 2017

ADVANCED HAS been awarded a contract to install its MxPro 5 multiprotocol panels to protect a major UK chemical plant.

Victrex, a world leader in the high-performance polymer solutions, focusses on serving a diverse range of markets that use VICTREX PEEK polymer, including smartphones, aeroplanes, cars, medical devices, oil and gas operations. The fire system installed at the Victrex Hillhouse site, in Lancashire, is built around MxPro fire panels from Advanced. The system was recently expanded with new MxPro 5 panels being integrated seamlessly onto the existing MxPro 4 network, allowing Victrex to keep costs down and take advantage of leading features of MxPro 5 such as AlarmCalm complete false alarm management.

Approved to EN54 parts 2, 4 and 13, MxPro 5 panels can be used in single loop, single panel format or easily configured into high speed, 200 panel networks covering huge areas and tens of thousands of field devices. Advanced’s legendary ease of installation and configuration and wide peripheral range mean that MxPro is customisable to almost any application and it can be found in challenging and prestigious sites around the world. 

Advanced’s MxPro 5 fire systems support two new technologies: The TouchControl touchscreen repeater and AlarmCalm complete false alarm management system. TouchControl is a 10” HD touchscreen that offers dynamic reporting and control via a unique interface that includes Active Maps and zone plans. AlarmCalm uses Advanced’s fast hardware, updated configuration software and optional loop verification devices to deliver a system that allows the false alarm strategy for any building to be quickly and easily programmed and managed, increasing safety and reducing false alarms.
