Siemens is expanding its Cerberus PRO fire safety offering with updated FC720 fire control panels, an IoT-enabled OOH740 detector equipped for disturbance-free function testing, and the Cerberus Connect mobile app that complements the existing Cloud Apps. As a result, service providers, consultants and end customers will benefit from resource optimization, simplified planning and maintenance as well as higher convenience during operations.
Control panel with built-in connectivity
The new FC720 fire control panels provide built-in connectivity through the X200 gateway. This facilitates installation and commissioning processes, saving time and enhancing security. This panel generation comes with an updated periphery board which significantly increases the power on the loop. With smaller panels and fewer loops than before, customers save costs and benefit from reduced planning complexity. Additionally, the panels offer refined software features, thereby optimizing operating options.
Detector equipped for disturbance-free function tests
In addition to the proven ASAtechnology (Advanced Signal Analysis), the OOH740 Cerberus PRO detector is now also equipped with DFTtechnology (disturbance-free function test). This means that the detector can be programmed to conduct tests on a regular basis without human intervention. As a result, service providers don’t need to wait for the next mandatory check by a service technician, nor physically send someone to test the detector in a building, risking to disturb for instance guests in hotel rooms, staff in meeting rooms, or patients in hospitals.
Cerberus Cloud Apps complemented by Cerberus Connect
Cerberus Connect App is a new app in the Cerberus Cloud Apps portfolio, available both for iOS and Android. Fire safety staff can receive live notifications via a push option, and they can check the status and event history of their fire safety site from anywhere and at any time.
Furthermore, maintenance and regular service visit planning and reporting has been improved by digitalizing the process through the Cerberus Cloud Apps. Secured visibility of the connected sites is ensured around the clock, thereby facilitating efficient maintenance planning, execution and reporting. The service provider can plan the visit through the Cerberus Portal, conduct testing on site via the Connect App and then generate compliant reports through the Portal. These can be sent to the customer, who has full visibility of the fire system and can prove compliance if needed.
