The MCP6V is a specially terminated unit fitted with a mains voltage microswitch. Externally identical in size and user interface with the normal low voltage version.

The latest addition to KAC’s range of manual call points for specialist applications is the MCP6V, an indoor call point for flush or surface mounting that will switch up to 2A at 240VAC mains voltage. Whilst the overwhelming majority of fire systems in Europe and around the world operate at 24VDC, there are a significant number of legacy mains voltage systems still in commission. These systems are located primarily in the Far East or in countries that have recently joined the EU, and they require continuing support for routine maintenance and replacement of devices.

The MCP6V is a specially terminated unit fitted with a mains voltage microswitch. Externally identical in size and user interface with the normal low voltage version, it features warning signs, visible when the operating cassette is removed, to alert installers and service engineers to the presence of high voltage. The internal layout of the unit has been designed specifically to minimise any opportunity for inadvertent contact with the terminals. The product is tested and approved by LPCB to EN54-11.

KAC Marketing Manager, Mark Thomson, said, “The new mains voltage unit joins KAC’s market leading range of call points designed to meet the needs of specific installation environments. Our recently launched MED approved devices for use in marine fire systems and ATEX approved call points for hazardous areas are two further examples of our commitment to developing product variants that offer additional features or enhanced performance over our standard product range.”
