Endemol

Endemol, known for producing many of the UK's favourite TV shows including Deal or No Deal, Extreme Makeover, Wipeout and Ready Steady Cook, were in need of a new fire system to protect their Amsterdam studios, offices and garage building.

Dutch company Endemol knew that a specialist building requires a specialist solution, so they turned to FireX BV to supply a new fire safety system.

The system installed comprised of three MxPro 4 4-loop series control panels in combination with two LED fire brigade mimic panels, connected to over 800 Apollo fire detectors as well as an ESPA 4.4.4 paging system. Also installed was a integrated sprinkler system connected to the fire panel network using the Mxp-045, 50 way Input/Output interface.

The control panels and mimic I/O are all interconnected using Ad-NeT+, Advanced's fault tolerant network. Ad-NeT+ is capable of withstanding a single fault between nodes without loss of communications to any single panel. Up to 200 panels (nodes) can be connected on the network with a total loop length of 20Km, using standard two-core fire resistant cable. The network in the TV Studios allows the status of the more than 800 devices to be interrogated on any of the fire panels as well as provide sprinkler indication via network I/O.
