At the core of the Edwards fire solution is the EST3 platform, a globally-proven product deployed in some of the world’s most important and high profile facilities. Now you can benefit from the confidence of a world-leading platform that meets Australia’s and New Zealand’s unique legislative standards.
The EST3 is scalable to any size facility. You can be confident that the system can handle your future growth. The EST3 fire system network supports up to 64 panels, with each panel supporting up to 2,500 addressable points. It delivers a fast alarm response time across all network sizes, and up to an overall length of 90 km. Even greater distances can be achieved over fibre optic network using our own multi-mode or single mode fibre optic interface modules.
EST3 has a number of audio and visual warning options available to complement its fire detection capability. For simple applications 24VDC Genesis signalling devices can provide basic cost effective warning with synchronised T3 tones. For systems requiring PA and single zone evacuation, Edwards Fire Solutions offers a single zone OWS (Occupant Warning System) that can be fitted within the 19” rackmount EST3 cabinets. For applications requiring a multi-zone warning and fire phone system, EST3’s own integrated audio solution via plug in audio and fire phone modules allows for up to eight channels of digital audio anywhere on the EST3 network using just a single pair of wires. For sites requiring an Emergency Warning and Intercommunication System, the Edwards Fire Solutions’ EWIS is fully compliant to AS2220 Australian standards and can even be fitted in the same 19” cabinet as an EST3 panel.
The EST3 Fire Panel features high level integration with the EWIS for synchronised zone alarm and evacuation sequencing. The integration enables both systems to communicate seamlessly eliminating costly and cumbersome wiring of output modules to individual zone triggers providing a more cost effective and robust integrated solution.
EST3 is built from the ground up to minimise labour and wiring costs in new and retrofit installations, while making system maintenance and even upgrades a breeze. In addition to supporting our world-renowned Signature series detectors, the EST3 platform will soon be capable of backwards compatibility with Ziton legacy detectors and devices widely used in the Australian and New Zealand market.
