INTRON-D plus /FA – INDUSTRONIC’s Voice Alarm System Certified According to EN 54-16

The EN 54-16 standard specifies the test procedure, the performance criteria and the different requirements for voice alarm systems connected to fire detection and fire alarm systems providing fire alarm signals and messages to protect human life in case of fire.

The standard defines system functions that are mandatory (e.g. specific key colors for different states) as well as optional functions (e.g. emergency microphone, manual control of voice alarms, suitable flashing warning beacons, redundant power amplifiers) that can be provided by the system as a useful addition.

INDUSTRONIC is happy to announce that the INTRON-D plus /FA system with the latest components fulfills all assessment and verification criterias for the constancy of performance stipulated in the EN 54-16 standard. The system can be used as voice alarm control and indicating equipment (VACIE) for fire detection and fire alarm systems. We call it INTRON-D plus /FA to distinguish it from a non-certified system. FA stands for fire alarm.

The certification procedure was carried out by the Notified Body no. 0036 TÜV Süd Industrie Service GmbH. Different tests (e.g. audio performance, EMC, temperature resistance, software, and vibration test) were successfully performed in an accredited test lab.

Our new emergency microphone 30 EMI 010/FA for use in EN 54-16 systems was also included in the tests. It offers the following key features:

30 EMI 010/FA

  • Sturdy housing for wall mounting
  • Striking red color and labeled as emergency microphone – can be easily spotted
  • Viewing window for good visibility of keys
    and status indicators as specified in EN 54-16
  • Monitoring of microphone function
  • Door lock to be opened by a fireman in case of fire
