EMS have launched a BS5839 Guide phone app at the Firex South 2012 trade show earlier this month.
EMS Fire & Security Systems have created what they are claiming is "the UK's first ever BS5839 phone app on Android", which will be followed by an iPhone version shortly. Head of Marketing at EMS Fire & Security, Ray Puttock, comments, "The introduction of the app is another exciting development for EMS and really demonstrates our commitment to providing information for fire professionals and to the fire industry as a whole, using the latest technology."
The BS5839 is the engineering British Standard that guides fire professionals as well as users of fire detection systems. It is a code of practice for system design, installation, commissioning and maintenance. EMS have used their interpretation of the standard to provide a guide to the key elements in an easy to use format, allowing users to reference some of the important essentials when considering fire detection design and application.
There are also useful external links to ensure access to the latest information at your fingertips and specific advice on wireless fire detection and EN54-25, the pan European standard applicable to all wireless based fire systems. This app should not be used as a substitute for the BS5839 standard itself but as an additional tool for on-site reference.
The app can be downloaded now from Google play.
