GE Mass Notification System Receives New UL Listing
GE Security Inc. announces its EST3-Sixty mass notification emergency communications (MNEC) solution is the first of its kind to achieve the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) new mass notification standard.
The UL 2572 standard was used to evaluate each EST3-Sixty component, along with how the system functions as a whole and under varying operating conditions. According to UL’s Web site, to achieve UL 2572 listing, mass notification systems must also be employed in accordance with the National Fire Alarm Code, NFPA 72.
GE says its MNEC solution offers a combination of field-proven crisis management tools and the latest VoIP and fiber-optic communications. The solution integrates protection and notification systems to utilize multiple forms of communication, including paging systems, fire alarms, electronic signage, E-mail notifications, computer pop-ups, text messaging and other communication methods.
“No matter how large or dispersed, EST3-Sixty allows organizations to manage a diverse range of crises including natural disasters, fires, environmental accidents, health hazards, workplace violence and terrorist threats,” says Ted Milburn, GE Security’s product marketing manager for the Americas.
