Powersoft gains EN54 certification

Powersoft amplifiers have gained EN 54-16 certification to be used in public address and voice alarm systems. The European standard describes the required testing and performance criteria for a Voice Alarm Control and Indication Equipment (VACIE) for use in alarm systems installed in buildings, where the alarm signal is in the form of a tone, or voice message, or both. The certification now covers the extended range of Powersoft’s fixed install dedicated amplifiers, including the Ottocanali, Quattrocanali and Duecanali, as well as the X Series. With the new certification, businesses can now invest in amplifiers not only as part of an entertainment system but also as a voice alarm system.

“We’re always looking for ways to support our clients, and EN 54 certification is yet another step we are taking to ensure our clients always have the best options open to them,” commented Marc Kocks, Powersoft’s business development manager, fixed install, global application engineering manager. “Safety and reliability have always been a top priority to us and with this certification we can offer our clients high quality, reliable equipment for their alarm systems.”

While the specification covers the EU, local Codes of Practice do need to be taken into account when installing voice alarm systems, as they can differ in expected performance and design criteria, and may require used products to comply with the EN 54-16 specification. “Adding EN 54 certification to our already proven fixed installation product portfolio will allow for easy integration in any EN 54 compliant systems or a system that allows for deviations,” Kocks furthered.

As a result of the certification, Powersoft will be organising training sessions in English and Spanish on voice alarm and EN 54, providing information on amplifier features, technologies and usage in voice alarm applications as well as voice alarm systems regulations.
