growing MAGfire Fire Protection range. MAGDUO sits alongside the existing MAG Conventional Fire Alarm products and the MAGPRO Addressable range – fulfilling the increasing demand from customers for this latest technology. An essential component product for the MAGDUO


Two Wire Fire System is the FlexiPoint detector device which brings a high degree of flexibility, versatility and convenience due to the inbuilt programmable options it offers. The MAGDUO FlexiPoint is a plugin style smoke

detector that utilises a photoelectric sensing chamber to make a measurement corresponding to smoke density. The device also incorporates a thermistor sensing circuit to allow for accurate heat measurement. These elements allow the device to be configured to a smoke, heat or combined setting. As well as offering 7 different modes of fire

detection including combined heat and smoke, the FlexiPoint detector is also available with an inbuilt sounder or inbuilt sounder strobe, which will assist with a compact install solution (as the detector and sounder is allinone as opposed to separate units).

3 Steps to Save Money and Increase the Reliability of your Humidifier…


Recognise the Impact of water quality

Minerals in mains water

will cause your humidifier to scale up much the same way as your domestic kettle. If left unchecked it will reduce performance and significantly increase the likelihood of breakdowns, damage, poor reliability, leaving you with a sense of real dissatisfaction with the product. Minimising the negative impact of your water quality is critical to humidifier performance. 2. Understand your water quality You need to understand what type of water you have. There are various, inexpensive tests that can be carried out to establish this. The type of water you have will determine the best method of dealing with it. This can be via regular maintenance, prefiltration of the water before it reaches the humidifier or, a combination of the two.

uToshiba’s new online tool automacally checks R32 system designs for compliance with the safety requirements of EN 378.


oshiba has developed an online tool that automatically checks R32

refrigerantbased air conditioning designs for compliance with the safety requirements of European Standard EN 378. Toshiba Carrier UK Ltd (TCUK) is a joint venture between Toshiba Carrier Corporation and Carrier in the United Kingdom, and is part of Carrier, a leading global provider of innovative heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies. EN 378 – Refrigerating Systems

and heat pumps: Safety and environmental requirements sets out limits for refrigerant charge size in occupied spaces. These vary according to the toxicity and flammability of the refrigerant, the size of the occupied space, the accessibility of the area, and the scale of possible exposure by individuals and the public in the unlikely event of a refrigerant leak. “The calculation for specific

projects under EN378 becomes quite complex, due to the number of variables involved,” said Oliver

Sanders, TCUK’s new equipment presales manager. “The tool enables designers to quickly input the key details for a project and simply hit return; it automatically calculates whether the proposed system is compliant or not.” If a proposed design proves to be

noncompliant, the tool suggests practical mitigation measures that can be used to ensure the project meets the requirements. These may include installation of a fixed refrigerant monitoring and alarm system, use of isolation valves, and/or installation of ventilation fans in the area affected by a potential leak. “It is a really useful tool for air

conditioning system designers, particularly given the adoption of R32 refrigerant as a mainstream solution,” said Sanders. “Our own presales design team uses it as part of their standard process for carrying out compliance checks on proposed designs. It provides designers, consultants and contractors with reassurance and useful options to ensure systems are within safety requirements.” Access the tool here:charge/ Read the latest:
