MILWAUKEE – (November 19, 2019) – The latest
enhancements to the Simplex ES Net IP-based fire and life safety network from Johnson Controls
optimizes system design and installation flexibility while increasing network
capacity, speed and performance. ES Net can now support up to 687 nodes, making it the most scalable, resilient and highest capacity system on the market today.
ES Net supports multiple network
topologies (ring, star, bus and bridged rings) for enhanced design and
installation flexibility, improved fault tolerance and the potential to reduce
the conduit and wiring. A redundant system with battery backup, ES Net can also
support supplemental network traffic without any interference to fire alarm and
life safety traffic. Devices such as security cameras, access control and
building automation systems can now be seamlessly supported across the UL
Listed, supervised network.
“The latest updates to the ES Net
life safety network give building operators more freedom and flexibility for
connecting building systems than any other network currently on the market,”
said Anil Konjalwar, senior product manager, Fire Detection, Johnson Controls.
“It can support our customers’ largest, most complex applications including
hospitals, airports, convention centers, universities and other multi-building
ES Net harnesses the power of IP
technology with data rates up to 100MB per second and a range of network
connection choices including Ethernet, DSL and fiber, giving building owners a
platform for future growth and integration. Centralized system management and
increased bandwidth also allow for quicker upgrades to reduce downtime and
ES Net provides greater flexibility
during network expansion and allows up to 82,000 feet (25 Km) between nodes.
The network’s increased memory capacity, advanced diagnostics and broad
bandwidth helps maximize uptime, deliver consistent performance and support
future expansion and enhancements.
Several upgrades have also been
made to the system’s TrueSite Workstation, including ULC Supervising Station
Listing, the ability to switch from a primary to backup server, increased
support up to 60 clients and enhanced operator account security.
