AES Announces UL Certification
March 1, 2007
AES Corp., Peabody, Mass., announced that it received UL 864 Edition 9 listing for its 7705i Wireless-to-Internet system. AES Corp. makes AES IntelliNet, a wireless communications system for alarm monitoring.
This UL-listed technology, first introduced in April 2006, enables fire and security alarm monitoring companies to offer the benefits of two-way radio transmission wireless alarm communications to customers in multiple geographic regions. The UL 864 Edition 9 listing signifies that the 7705i meets the highest level of code compliance required of life-safety alarm communications equipment.
“With the 7705i, we’re now able to deliver our customers two things in one – the most code compliant nationwide radio-alarm system on the market and a solution to the pending AMPS Sunset Clause,” said Tom Kenty, general manager of AES Corp.
In addition to its ability to connect several mesh radio networks to operate as a single unified system, the 7705i enables large regional and national users of AES-IntelliNet networks to expand their system capacity and unify their coverage regions thereby increasing recurring revenues. There are no third-party alarm transmission fees, freeing new users from recurring communication costs.
