IED Introduces GLOBALCOM EN54-16 Compliant System


January 28th, 2014 Louisville, KY – Innovative Electronic Designs LLC, the world leader in mass notification and emergency communication systems for over 30 years, will be releasing new system components in its GLOBALCOM platform designed to meet the criteria for EN54-16 compliance at next month’s Integrated Systems Europe show February 4-6 in Amsterdam.

“Delivering a GLOBALCOM system that is EN54-16 compliant is a huge step for IED in the European market”, said IED VP and GM Jody Green. “IED systems can be found in airports and other facilities across Europe. As we have moved to our new network centric GLOBALCOM platform and the safety standards in Europe have evolved, we are able to leverage the convenience and functionality of GLOBALCOM and deliver the required features to meet the compliance standards of EN54-16.”

The heart of the EN54-16 compliant GLOBALCOM system is the 5400ACS Announcement Control System. This integrated announcement controller contains all of the intelligence to manage an entire system of emergency communication stations, digital zone manager amplifier units, and other network peripherals. The 5400ACS manages the system in compliance with the EN54-16 standard, performing overall supervision and reporting of equipment faults plus any ongoing alarm conditions.
