L101 beacon gains EN54 Part 23 Approval
E2S has gained EN54 Part 23 certification from VdS for its L101 beacon, giving full compliance to the new standard that became effective from 1st March 2013 in most of Europe, and which will be in place from 1st July in the UK. Certification has been achieved for Wall Mount, Ceiling Mount and Open Class with either red or clear lenses, allowing it to be used in all locations with fire system installations. In addition to the stand-alone beacon, certification has been achieved for all E2S combination sounder/L101 beacon units, creating the most comprehensive range of products approved to the new standard available from any manufacturer. The EN54-23 approved units operate from 24VDC for use in fire systems and from 48VDC for other applications where approval may be required. The L101 is also available without EN54-23 approval in 12VDC and 115 or 230VAC mains powered versions, enabling them to be used in security systems and as general-purpose warning signals. Synchronised versions are available for multi-beacon systems; the units measure 86 x 86mm and accept 0.5 to 4.0mm2 cables to reduce installation time.
The Xenon strobe produces a high visibility 200cd output at a 1Hz frequency flash rate. With the new EN54-23 standard coming into force, E2S believes that clear lenses will become the norm in fire systems as they give much better performance; red lenses absorb around 85% of the light, which is highly inefficient.
