Inovonics Continues Commitment to Support of Regulatory Compliance Bodies
LOUISVILLE, Colo., December 15
— Inovonics, the leader in commercial grade wireless security products, today announced it has received residential UL listing and California State Fire Marshal (CSFM) approval on its wireless EchoStream® smoke detector (model EN1242).
“There is no margin for error in fire-safety products such as smoke detectors,” said Mark Jarman, president of Inovonics. “UL listing and approval through the CSFM office is an important signal to dealers, installers and end-users that the products they’re utilizing will work as intended when it’s needed. In recent years, Inovonics has redoubled our commitment to these regulatory bodies because we know how important it is to our dealers and installers.”
When appropriate, Inovonics wireless products undergo rigorous testing to fulfill important domestic and international requirements as set out by agencies such as UL, CENELEC, and a host of local regulatory agencies such as CSFM. A complete list of Inovonics' regulatory compliance can be found at its Web site. Inovonics also has representatives advising UL on commercial wireless guidelines for various commercial life safety product specifications.
“The residential UL Listing on a commercial-grade smoke detector is important for large-scale residential installations,” said Jarman. “It’s ideal for residential environments such as school dormitories, multifamily dwellings and homes with multiple buildings on the property; anywhere where running wire is too costly or aesthetically challenging.”
The EN1242 smoke detector utilizes GE® Interlogix technology for long battery life and Sentrol/ESL’s CleanMe® diagnostics, alerting the user when cleaning is needed. The Inovonics radio automatically supervises the link to the network for increased reliability, and the optical chamber is replaceable, eliminating the need for factory calibration.
