E2S Warning Signals achieve further DNV approvals to the Marine Equipment Directive
E2S, the world’s leading independent manufacturer of audible and visual warning signals, have extended their range of MED compliant products. The range includes alarm horn sounders and now combined audio-visual alarms with Xenon strobe beacons.
Selected products from E2S Warning Signals have been approved as compliant to the Marine Equipment Directive, MED, EU Directive 2014/90/EU by DNV, the world's largest classification society for the maritime and other sectors. The DNV approval confers global approval to IEC 60092 – 504, covering electrical, electronic and programmable equipment intended for automation, control, monitoring, alert, and safety and protection systems for use in ships and also to IEC 60533, which specifies demanding minimum requirements for emission, immunity and performance criteria regarding electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) of electrical and electronic equipment for ships with a metallic hull. In addition, the products are CPR Compliant through VDS approval to EN 54 -3 for audible signals and EN54 -23 for combination audio visual signals.
The MED compliant products are 24 VDC versions of fire alarm horn sounders SONF1, A105N and A112N. For explosion proof applications, the IECEx and ATEX approved BExS110 alarm horn sounder is also MED compliant. Combined audible and visual signals SONFL1X, AL105NX and AL112NX are available with outputs up to 119dB(A)@1m paired with a 5 Joule, 200 candela Xenon strobe unit fitted with a clear lens for maximum light output.
