Assa Abloy: ePED Panic Touch Bar

The design-oriented ePED panic touch bar combines panic bar and escape door control terminal in a single functional unit.
A separate terminal on the wall is no longer necessary minimizing the wiring effort. The escape door system is controlled via the integrated terminal with touch display. It repwlaces four modules: escape route icon, emergency button, authorized operation and display of the time delay. If the ePED touch bar is combined with a suitable lock, the burglary protection can also be increased. The system solution can be delivered and set up completely by the door manufacturer. The ePED push bar can be easily integrated into the door technology via Assa Abloy’s Hi-O bus technology.

The two fire alarm control panels Avenar panel 2000 and 8000 follow a modular concept and can each be equipped with up to 46 modules and up to 32 loops. Avenar panel offers a distributed architecture for campus solutions and can be equipped with multiple interfaces for an extended range of applications. The new eMatrix function gives clear feedback, shows the status of each evacuation zone as well as the fire protection equipment.
