According to Alex Cother, Sales and Marketing Director for Drax Technology: “AMX 2.17 makes it even easier for organisations to centralise the monitoring and management of diverse systems and deliver the most appropriate and efficient response to fire alarms. It allows organisations to make more effective use of resources, reduce costs and deliver higher visibility of all installed systems regardless of location.”
AMX 2.17 is now Windows 8 compatible and supports virtually all leading fire control panels with the addition of the ADT MX/ZX, C-Tec, Kidde Vega and Morley DX Connexion systems. It provides a real-time view of the status and performance of all connected devices and enables faults to be rapidly identified across the network without having to physically check each remote control panel. The system also allows individual devices to be isolated remotely in the event of building work or other activities that occur in a specific zone to eliminate the incidence of false alarms.
The system’s synchronisation capabilities have also been enhanced to improve operational efficiency. AMX 2.17 now allows clocks in remote fire alarms and connected devices to be synchronised to ensure that reports and event logs are more accurate. Also, when multiple AMX workstations are connected as part of a group, they are synchronised to ensure that a single data set is used to simplify future reporting.
“Drax Technology’s latest version of the AMX system is a cost effective solution that allows all installed alarm systems to be monitored in real-time using the existing IT infrastructure, Wi-Fi or 3G/4G connections. It eliminates the need for costly and disruptive cabling installations and allows organisations to reduce the incidence of false alarms and demonstrate compliance with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety Order) 2005,” concluded Alex Cother.
