TOA presenting their EN 54 certified VM-3000 series compact public address and voice alarm systems at Security Essen 2010.

TOA will present their EN 54 certified VM-3000 series compact public address and voice alarm systems at Security Essen 2010. The company will also show their EN 54-24 certified speakers including the TOA PC-1867FC flush-mounted ceiling and the BS-680FC wall-mounted public address speakers. TOA’s fully EN 54-4 certified power supply with the VX-2000DS at its centre will also be on display.

“TOA has an extremely long and solid record in standard compliance,” says Wolfgang Pein, Director, German Sales at TOA Europe. “EN 54 stipulates the product and testing requirements for voice alarm components in fire detection and alarm systems and TOA were first to bring the compliant products to market. They can be found in a number of systems in use today such as the OpernTurm in Frankfurt Germany.”

EN-54 aims to improve the communication of installed systems with the outside world – users, installers, fire fighters and, most importantly, the public. Also, EN 54 states the availability of system functionality in the most adverse or challenging of operating environments.

All EN 54 standards will become effective across the member states of the European Union in March, 2011. In summary, TOA is the first manufacturer to meet all three parts applicable to voice alarm components already today including:

  • EN 54-4: Power Supply Equipment
  • EN 54-16: Voice Alarm and Indicating Equipment
  • EN 54-24: System Loudspeakers
