Cygnus Alarm System – the top 5 facts you need to know

Our Cygnus Wireless Alarm System has protected some of the largest construction projects across the world including projects in the UK such as Bond Street Station and Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and as far as major developments across Australia.

Developed to ensure the safety of construction workers and members of the public, as well as safeguard expensive construction equipment, the Cygnus Wireless Alarm System is fully compliant for use during construction, offers unrivalled connectivity and impressive signal range and can be configured to any requirement.

Read our top five facts of the Cygnus wireless alarm system and why every contractor needs the system on site.

  1. Long distance connection
    Cygnus has been specially designed for use in dense concrete and steel structured buildings and areas where there are many other radio frequencies in use. Therefore, particular attention has been given to achieving an extremely long-range connection.
    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 due to a mesh system protocol that allows devices to communicate through one another and not just directly to the panel
  2.  Protection for the whole site
    The alarms can operate in a maximum of 15 zones with up to 32 devices per zone. It’s capable of controlling all zones from a control panel operating on the same frequency but distinguished by different zone addresses. In the case of a real alarm, the message is communicated to every device within the site.
    The system can be installed anywhere in a building under construction, in site cabins or mobile fire points and removed at the end of the construction project. The product can also be re-used multiple times on future projects.
  3. Latest technology
    Delivering an impressive signal-range, the Cygnus system conforms to EN300 220 Category 1 requirements. Mesh protocol ensures seamless point-to-point and multipoint communication.
    The specialist software ensures performance of the system can be optimised with a central control panel. Each control panel reports back on device status and provides condition updates including signal faults and battery usage.
    The Cygnus system also works with the new GSM Auto Dialler, which allows site managers to programme up to nine phone numbers of responsible persons in an emergency who are then notified by SMS if an activation or intrusion has occurred.
  4. Easy installation
    The Cygnus system can be installed in minutes. There is minimal interference to ongoing construction and no complicated cabling with a wireless alarm. Making installation even simpler, the wireless alarm system can also be delivered pre-configured to the customer’s request, with clearly marked zone labels on each device.
  5. Bespoke to your requirements
    No matter what a company’s site requirements are, the Cygnus system provides an innovative and reliable solution. So, whether your site needs an exclusion zone alarm, a first aid alert facility or interface units, the innovative system ensures workers and a site are protected when and where it matters the most.
