Disabled Refuge System
OmniCare is an addressable voice communication system that allows disabled refuge, fire telephones, emergency/steward telephones and disabled toilet alarms to be connected to one master control panel. VIGIL OmniCare has been designed and built to meet BS9999:2008, BS5839-9:2011 and BS8300:2009 (for the disabled toilet alarm).
This emergency voice communication system can be used by disabled people when in commercial and public buildings. The system comprises an intercom facility that is designed specifically for the use of people who are physically handicapped. It enables them to easily communicate with key building management staff in the event of an emergency.
OmniCare control panels are powered from the ring circuit and have the following features:
Disabled refuge remote unit
Disabled refuge outstations for the OmniCare range come in a choice of styles – standard or advance. Outstations (also known as ‘remotes’) on the OmniCare system are wired in a loop configuration. For systems used for ‘fire fighting’ fire rated enhanced four-core cable should be used. To avoid hoax calls, the disabled refuge remotes are ‘in standby’ until the master panel is triggered by the fire panel during an emergency. However, the remotes can be set to be permanently active if this is preferred.
OmniCare remote units are self powered from the ring circuit and have the following features:
IP66 rated enclosure
The IP66 Rated Enclosure enables mounting of refuge remote in external areas, such as car parks, balconies, etc.
Plasterboard back box
The fire telephone is just one type of outstation available for the OmniCare emergency voice communication system. Fire telephones are used by fire officers and those responsible for the evacuation of a building during an emergency. They provide essential communication for those in control.
OmniCare fire telephones are powered from the ring circuit and have the following features:
Emergency telephones (also known as ‘steward’ telephones) are generally used in sites such as stadia for emergency communication. The OmniCare emergency telephone is just one type of outstation available in the range.
OmniCare Emergency / Steward telephones are powered from the ring circuit and have the following features:
Combined disabled refuge/fire telephone
The combined disabled refuge and fire telephone is a unique unit – saving on wiring and installation costs. The combined outstation forms part of the OmniCare addressable emergency voice communication system which enables any combination of outstations to be connected to one master control panel.
The combined remotes have the same features as the separate fire telephone and disabled refuge units, including:
Disabled toilet alarm kit
The disabled toilet alarm kit can be fitted as a component of the OmniCare EVC system or as a completely independent, stand-alone kit. Disabled toilet alarm units are connected to the VIGIL OmniCare system via a BVFREPEM repeater unit.
