eConnect from Chubb Receives LPCB Approval

Chubb : 05 March, 2012  (New Product)
Important approval achieved by Chubb Fire and Security for its eConnect fire and security alarm product
eConnect from Chubb Receives LPCB Approval

Chubb Fire & Security has had three product variants undergo and pass the rigorous testing programme required to achieve LPS 1277 Issue 3.0. These include the eConnect IP/GPRS G4e and eConnect GPRS/PSTN G3e offering a selection of dual path solutions for use with intruder alarm and hold-up installations and also the eConnect IP/GPRS G4eF offering a dual path solution for use with fire alarm installations.

The Chubb eConnect connects to the notification outputs of an intruder alarm or a fire alarm control panel and in the event of an alarm transmits messages to the Chubb alarm receiving centres. The alarm receiving centres are manned 24 hours-a-day enabling the key holder to be contacted or the appropriate response (eg Police or Fire Service) dispatched. The dual path intruder solutions ensure that even in the event of a malicious attack on one or both of the communication paths to the alarm receiving centre, a confirmed alarm can continue to be signalled at the ARC, allowing the police to be called.

The LPS 1277 approval scheme brings together the various alarm transmission system (ATS) requirements relevant to the UK fire and intruder alarm market. LPS 1277 addresses the requirements of the insurance industry and other stakeholders on key issues such as ensuring faults are reported in a more appropriate timescale and providing guidelines for installers.

The requirements of LPS 1277 Issue 3.0 are based on the EN 50136, EN 50131 and EN 54 series of European standards. While it builds on and clarifies these Standards typically in areas relating to intrusion and hold up alarm systems, LPS 1277 does not in any way undermine their use or future development.
In addition to outlining clear performance requirements, LPS 1277 contains (in ANNEX C) guidance for equipment installers, which the suppliers of LPS 1277 Issue 3.0-approved equipment are required to include in their installation instructions.
