Johnson Controls and axonX Partner in Marketing of Video-Based Early Warning Fire System
Integrator Johnson Controls will be supplied with advance fire video technology and software by fire-detection technology developer axonX. In turn, Johnson Controls will sell and service these expanded offerings through its national and international distribution network.
AxonX has agreed to continue product development and initiate certification of the product through relevant listing agencies such as UL and Factory Mutual (FM). AxonX also will support the Johnson Controls product launch through training and technical assistance where required.
According to axonX, the firm was recently awarded a Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO) Technology Transfer Initiatives grant in the amount of $50,000. The Aberdeen Technology Transfer Initiative grant will fund the testing of the axonX SigniFire video-based fire detection product within the FM approval process. The Aberdeen Test Center (ATC) will provide the performance fire testing in a large volume building as required by FM.
