A new Simplex life safety network released by Johnson Controls will greatly increase the speed and ease at which fire detection and life safety systems communicate and operate.

The Simplex ES Net Life Safety Network harnesses the power of IP technology with data rates up to 100 MB per second and a range of network connection choices including ethernet, DSL and fiber.

The network will give building owners reassurance knowing that as the IP standard evolves, so will ES Net, making the life safety system resilient and future-proof.

Simplex ES Net also provides greater flexibility during network expansion.

By allowing up to 25 kilometres between units, ES Net gives users more options to meet performance and budget requirements.

The network’s increased memory capacity and broad bandwidth helps improve uptime, ensure more consistent performance and support future expansion and enhancements.  

“Johnson Controls has brought leading-edge innovation to fire detection and life safety systems,” said Anil Konjalwar, senior product manager, fire detection, at Johnson Controls. “The new Simplex ES Net offers a powerful solution for customers seeking a fast, reliable and efficient life safety network.”  

With the system’s TrueSite Workstation Mobile Client, network monitoring and management can easily be completed on a mobile device or single console. Advanced diagnostic tools ensure fast installations, easy commissioning and quick, efficient pinpointing of network performance and connection issues.
