SimplexGrinnell's Simplex TrueAlert ES (eServices) notification brings addressable technology to the systems that warn building occupants in the event of a fire or other emergency. It is the latest addition to SimplexGrinnell’s suite of web-enabled eService solutions. Each TrueAlert ES device is electronically supervised – built with the intelligence to continuously report its status to a Simplex 4100ES fire alarm control panel. Key benefits include: design flexibility; efficient installation; cost-effective maintenance; lower costs of installation, operation and ownership; and improved overall protection. TrueAlert ES devices offer self-testing capability. A pass-fail signal is sent to the Simplex 4100ES panel when audible and visible devices are tested. Device information and test history is stored, and a Simplex 4100ES panel can generate reports for AHJs (authorities having jurisdiction) and other code compliance officials. TrueAlert ES devices provide a specific warning alert when repair or maintenance is needed.www.simplexgrinnell.com
