Honeywell new fire detection and alarm systems enhance occupant safety

Honeywell today announced the launch of the Morley-IAS Max fire detection and alarm system that helps improve building and occupant safety. The compact, powerful, performance-driven intelligent fire alarm control panel offers installers and end users a technically advanced range of functions that is easy to install, commission and maintain.

The system features an advanced 7-inch touch screen panel, providing a highly intuitive and ergonomic user interface. The panel displays color-coded events and graphical icons. It boasts cutting-edge technologies such as multi-Boolean logic and CAN bus protocol between panels, helping enable faster communication.

“Honeywell’s Morley-IAS Max panel helps create safer spaces for occupants, while also enabling building owners to better adhere to standard safety guidelines,” said Lionel Caillat, general manager, vice president, Fire, Honeywell Europe. “The product is designed to eliminate time-consuming and technically difficult installation of add-on components. It communicates clearly and unambiguously, and efficiently manages complicated evacuation strategies in the event of an emergency.”
Morley-IAS Max is well suited for operation in various verticals such as commercial, education, healthcare, residential, and hospitality. Its full backward compatibility makes it well suited for retrofit projects as it supports a range of field devices, including third-party manufacturer devices. The aesthetically pleasing panel delivers high-quality design in commercial or luxury environments.

The system incorporates serial communication ports, relays and CAN bus network to help reduce complexities typically encountered during ordering and installation. The panels offer multiple installation options in addition to standard wall mounting and flush mounting.

The National Library of Wales (NLW), the largest library in the country, recently completed a full site upgrade with Morley-IAS Max, which brought the site up to an L1 type fire alarm system. As the site was fitted with older technology from a previous supplier, the upgraded fire system required installation of new System Sensor hard wired equipment and Agile radio equipment. The backwards compatibility of Morley-IAS Max could fully interface with its existing smoke beams and aspirating smoke detection systems, saving the NLW money and time on the installation.

The Morley-IAS Max panel is tested and certified in compliance with EN 54-2 and EN 54-4 standards. To learn more about the product please click here.
