OTC 2017 in Houston

Recently we visited the OTC in Houston where our USA-subsidiary was exhibiting at the German Pavilion.

 

 

Here visitors could find a display of existing, new and upcoming INDUSTRONIC products. The Vice-President of INDUSTRONIC Inc. highlighted the advantages and flexibility of our industrial communication system. Also, our “Director Products” from Headquarters, Christine Segler, was able to transfer a wealth of information and expertise. 

 

We met up with old friends, newcomers, suppliers and had rewarding talks with interested parties. The overall feel of the event was very good – there was an optimistic outlook regarding the resurgence of the Oil & Gas Market.

All in all, it was a very successful event. We look forward to the OGA in Malaysia in July 2017!

Time-controlled Functions

Today´s topic in my series of INDUSTRONIC functions are “Time-controlled Functions” which allow to automatically trigger functions and sequences according to the time specified. They can be defined for a longer period of time (from/to) as well as for a single recurring point in time (at x o´clock).

Application Example “Night Mode”

For speaker announcements by night, the volume is lowered (night mode). By day, from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., all acoustic signals are broadcasted at high volume. From 10:00 p.m., night mode is activated. Then, all acoustic signals are automatically broadcasted at lower volume. From 6:00 a.m., volume is increased to normal level.

E-mail Notifications, Prayer Calls and Much More

Additionally, you can also use it to send different types of information via e-mail (e.g. system states), broadcast break time signals or even prayer calls at specified times.

Time Synchronization via NTP Server

The time of the INDUSTRONIC system can be synchronized via a NTP server provided by the customer.

INTRON-D plus /FA – INDUSTRONIC’s Voice Alarm System Certified According to EN 54-16

The EN 54-16 standard specifies the test procedure, the performance criteria and the different requirements for voice alarm systems connected to fire detection and fire alarm systems providing fire alarm signals and messages to protect human life in case of fire.

The standard defines system functions that are mandatory (e.g. specific key colors for different states) as well as optional functions (e.g. emergency microphone, manual control of voice alarms, suitable flashing warning beacons, redundant power amplifiers) that can be provided by the system as a useful addition.

INDUSTRONIC is happy to announce that the INTRON-D plus /FA system with the latest components fulfills all assessment and verification criterias for the constancy of performance stipulated in the EN 54-16 standard. The system can be used as voice alarm control and indicating equipment (VACIE) for fire detection and fire alarm systems. We call it INTRON-D plus /FA to distinguish it from a non-certified system. FA stands for fire alarm.

The certification procedure was carried out by the Notified Body no. 0036 TÜV Süd Industrie Service GmbH. Different tests (e.g. audio performance, EMC, temperature resistance, software, and vibration test) were successfully performed in an accredited test lab.

Our new emergency microphone 30 EMI 010/FA for use in EN 54-16 systems was also included in the tests. It offers the following key features:

30 EMI 010/FA

  • Sturdy housing for wall mounting
  • Striking red color and labeled as emergency microphone – can be easily spotted
  • Viewing window for good visibility of keys
    and status indicators as specified in EN 54-16
  • Monitoring of microphone function
  • Door lock to be opened by a fireman in case of fire

For more details, please refer to our data sheet.

Please click the following link to view the EN 54-16 certificate of constancy of performance and the declaration of performance for the INTRON-D plus / FA system with a detailed overview of the system’s essential characteristics as well as the EU declaration of conformity.

INDUSTRONIC at the INTERSEC 2017 Trade Fair

This year, INDUSTRONIC participated as an exhibitor at the Intersec trade fair in Dubai for the first time.

At the German Pavilion, visitors had the chance to examine our products. Our Director of Sales, as well as the responsible Area Sales Manager were pleased to answer questions and give advice.

The Intersec trade fair is one of the leading international meeting platforms for the Security & Safety industry. For 18 years it has proven to be the no. 1 business platform in the MENA (Middle East & North Africa) region and beyond.
The last event in January 2016 featured more than 1,280 exhibitors and welcomed over 31,261 visitors from 128 countries, which made it the largest and most international Intersec of all times.

The fair was a good opportunity to meet customers and interested parties from all over the world. Furthermore we made new contacts and met our partners.

We were able to show our clients the latest developments and to discuss their requirements.

Beside our future smartphone application, we presented our new acoustic horn and the software-based PC intercom station NCP.

The feedback was excellent and we hope to create new business opportunities due to the excellent feedback we received.

We would like to express our gratitude to all our visitors who made the event so special and successful for us.

INDUSTRONIC would like to take the chance to thank everyone for visiting our booth in the German Pavilion at the Intersec. It was another outstanding experience and we enjoyed the inspiring conversations with visitors as well as exhibitors.

Thank you very much again and we hope to see you soon at our next exhibition.

Greeting from the President 2017

Wolfgang StallmeyerDear Reader,

Our business continues to grow at a high level despite the low price of oil.

The demand for IP solutions is steadily increasing. Nevertheless, the digital 2-wire technology with its transmission distance of up to 4 km (2.5 miles) for remote intercom stations with additional speaker will play an important role for a long time to come. Hybrid solutions combine the advantages of both technologies.

Our new high power speaker application with 125-W acoustic horns is experiencing great success. It provides excellent speech intelligibillity over long distances and is ideal to address large-scale areas such as tank farms and marine loading terminals. In combination with the classic public address speakers for buildings and outdoor areas with hidden nooks and corners, you get a perfect solution for efficient and high-quality broadcasting of announcements and alarms throughout the plant.

Together with our various intercom functions, we provide you with reliable wire-based industrial communication which also integrates wireless communication.

Regards,

Wolfgang Stallmeyer

President

October Activities at INDUSTRONIC

October traditionally marks the beginning of fall and here at INDUSTRONIC. The busy season of the end of year rally starts. Many customers and partners are visiting and in addition to that our annual service training took place in Wertheim. During two days of training the service staff from our regional sales and customer service offices was informed about the latest technical topics and got an outlook on new products. These training days are a great opportunity for the service people from different parts of Germany to exchange their experiences and to learn from each other.

Call Request Control

Today´s topic of INDUSTRONIC functions is Call Request Control. This function is often used at gateways and entrance areas. There, visitors must make a call request to the central control room via a gate intercom station.

Control Rooms – Flexible and Always Available

This call request reaches several control room intercom stations simultaneously. Depending on the situation, operators in the control room can flexibly decide at which intercom station they want to accept the call request and conduct the conversation. At the same time, the other stations are free and can accept further calls.

Communication is controlled by the Control Room

After the call has been accepted by the control room, a voice connection is established and controlled by the control room. During the course of the conversation the person at the entrance does not have to press any key again.

Communication Procedure

The following illustration shows the communication procedure in general.

Gate Intercom Stations with only 1 Key

Each intercom station which is used at an entrance area requires only 1 key for the call request. After the call has been accepted, no further keypress is necessary.

Conversation in Duplex Mode

Once an operator accepts the call, the conversation can be held in full-duplex mode if the intercom station in the control room is equipped with a handset which is used for the conversation.
