The benefits of Care 2
The control console
The CARE2 control console has a bright and clear LCD screen and is operated by a rotary encoder. Any combination of the outstations featured on this leaflet can be connected to the panel.
The network expansion panel (NEP)
The CARE2 Network expansion console (NEP) adds to the flexibility of the CARE2 EVC system. Whether you require one outstation or 256 outstations, CARE2 can meet your needs. Each Network Expansion Panel can connect to 16 Outstations, and up to 15 Network Expansion Panels (and one master console) can be networked together to allow up to 256 remote units.
Disabled refuge remote unit
The Care2 Disabled Refuge Remote Unit provides clear, hands-free, two-way communication between person(s) in a refuge area and building control (or fire officers) during an evacuation event. Type B outstation as defined in BS5839-9:2011 – for use by the public and disabled persons requiring assistance.
The disabled refuge outstations on the system are permanently ‘active’, however, by fitting an optional module they can remain in ‘standby’ mode until activated by the fire panel.
IP66 rated enclosure
The IP66 Rated Enclosure enables mounting of refuge remote in external areas, such as car parks, balconies, etc.
Plasterboard back box
Telephone handset in a metal enclosure. Used by fire officers/building control during an emergency – such as a fire. Assists with the efficient evacuation of a building. Provides a method of clear communication for the user and those monitoring the situation at the control console. Firefighter telephones are usually sited on every floor of a building (as a minimum) in areas that are easily accessible.
Emergency steward's telephone
Designed for sports venues and stadia, the emergency telephone has all the features of the firefighter telephone. In a sports venue (or similar site) no-one should have to travel more than 30m to reach the nearest outstation (BS5839-9:2011).
This style of outstation is typically used by stewards for during an emergency. It provides a method of clear communication between stewards in different areas, enabling up-to-date information on a situation to be conveyed.
The CARE2 roaming telephone is a portable handset for use at the specially designed jack sockets. The jack sockets are positioned at appropriate points throughout a building.
The roaming telephones are stored in an enclosure which, as well as keeping them protected and secure, provides the added advantage of monitoring the handsets whilst not in use.
