THE CYGNUS SYSTEM
COMPLIANCE MADE SIMPLE
The Cygnus Alarm system is fully compliant for use on construction sites. We understand the legislation that applies. Read more about the relevant regulations that cover their use.
Cygnus covers impressive distances and huge areas due to a meshing system which allows devices to communicate through one another and not directly to the control panel.
A solution for every site
The Cygnus system can be configured to suit your bespoke requirements, including GSM capability and intruder alarms etc. Contact us for bespoke solutions.
low cost of ownership
Cygnus alarms have a low cost of ownership. Manufactured with long life batteries, all components are demountable in case of damage so parts can be replaced individually.
The Cygnus fire alarm system is able to link no less than 480 units in 15 zones. Individual units may be either a fire alarm call point, first aid alert point, smoke detector, heat detector and the new combined call point/first aid alert alarm. Further capabilities include out-of-hours notifications via an auto dialling panel to key holders. Cygnus has been specifically designed for use in dense concrete and steel structured buildings, and areas where there are many other radio frequencies in use. Particular attention has been given therefore to achieving an extremely long range connection and distances in excess of 1.5km have been recorded in an open air environment. Whilst this range is not guaranteed on site due to limiting obstacles, Cygnus covers impressive distances and huge areas due to a meshing system which allows devices to communicate through one another and not directly to the panel.
Cygnus Alarms are simple to configure, use, and redeploy.
GSM capability. Bespoke solutions available.
Our wireless alarm systems are very reliable, even when used undergound.
Cygnus alarm systems are very durable, able to withstand the stresses of construction sites.

The control panel, which is an optional element, is used to capture data from up to 480 devices situated around a site. This data includes active fire alarms, intruder alerts, first aid alert, heat and smoke detector activations, battery low warning and signal failure. It is capable of holding event logs, so the user can[…]
The Cygnus GSM control panel has all functionality of the standard CYG1 panel but in addition can send data directly to a third party monitoring station and/or as an SMS text to mobiles. The panel can also be accessed from a PC so users can remotely view the system’s status from any location. The user[…]
The CYG6 Cygnus base panel has been developed as the control panel, ideal for smaller construction sites. It is an optional element into the Cygnus system, and is used to capture data. This wireless alarm panel can be used in conjunction with other Cygnus control panels but has reduced networking capability and can support up[…]
The Cygnus fire call point alarm operates using a single battery pack and can be used externally. This radio alarm device has also been designed as a standalone alarm unit. These devices are normally situated around a site in prominent places on main escape routes, stairwells and on, or near fire points where they are[…]
The Cygnus 85 decibel fire call point alarm operates using a single battery pack and is IP rated, thus suitable for external use. This device has been designed as a standalone alarm unit as well as a radio alarm. These devices are built with a less audible sounder for quieter areas such as operational facilities[…]
The impressive combined Cygnus fire call point and first aid alarm has all features of the CYG2 alarm but in addition boasts the first aid alert functionality for first aid emergencies. This operates in a different way to a fire alarm so as to distinguish the type of alarm. When a first aid alert is[…]
Cygnus lithium heat detectors are an integral part of the system, providing essential detection in and out of working hours on all types of construction projects. These highly tested and extremely quality detectors work in the radio mesh like any other device and will help transmit and receive all other radio messages from other alarms[…]
Cygnus lithium smoke detectors have an optical smoke sensor and are an integral part of the system, providing essential detection in and out of working hours on all types of construction projects. Optical smoke detectors work using the light scatter principle. The detector changes to alarm state at a pre-set threshold of smoke penetration into[…]
The Cygnus first aid alert point has been designed to operate differently from all other types of alerts and alarms. Once triggered the fi rst aid alert will beep intermittently every 8seconds at 85 decibels. The control panel notifies the user the exact location within a zone where the alarm has been triggered. This helps[…]
The Cygnus detector interface has been purposely built for use with the ALMWS01 smoke, ALMWS02 heat and ALMWS04 CO detectors. These detectors are radio linked and are designed to work in groups of up to eleven detectors per interface. The interface module can be assigned to a zone and has an individual unit number like[…]
The Cygnus input/output unit has been designed for interfacing with other fire systems, turnstile gate entry systems and door release systems. In the case of an alarm activation, the interface will trigger the door release and will deactivate the turnstile so a quick evacuation can be made to the assembly point. Where a site has[…]
The PIR functionality is available on all Cygnus alarms. This additional feature helps utilise fire, first aid alarms, and detectors for intruder activities. PIR works with the CYG1-GSM/GPRS control panel and sends users an SMS text alert should an intrusion occur. Alerts can also be sent to a third party monitoring station. The sensors are[…]
