AES Corporation, Peabody, Mass., announced that its AES-IntelliNet 7788F-C series Fire subscriber, 7705i-C central station receiver, and its 7170-C MultiNet transceiver earned the Canadian ULC listing as a “Fire Communicator for use with Network and Cellular communication paths” - “CAN/ULC S561-03 Installation And Services For Fire Signal Receiving Centres And Systems.”
The same products have also earned ULC-S304 - Passive Level 3 for burglar alarm communications. These new listing allow fire alarm control panels and burglar alarm panels to use AES-IntelliNet transmitters and receivers as the primary means to communicate alarm, system trouble, AC trouble, battery trouble, and ground fault issues to the central receiving station for immediate dispatch.
“AES-IntelliNet has been delivering the fastest, most reliable alarm communications data to hundreds of thousands of customers in more than 85 countries worldwide,” said AES-IntelliNet US/Canada general manager Tom Kenty. “With the receipt of the ULC authorization, AES-IntelliNet dealers in Canada will have new communication options available to their Fire Alarm system customers. ULC approval means that dealers will no longer have to subscribe to and maintain two expensive dedicated Digital Voice Access Control System (DVAC) telephone lines or cellular communicators. Our AES-IntelliNet 7788 subscriber will assume primary communications method with a single DVAC line for back-up purposes, saving end users hundreds of dollars per year!”
