Advanced has supplied more than 100 MxPro fire panels to the London Underground network, covering more than 60 stations and protecting millions of travellers every year.
London Underground transports five million commuters to 270 stations across the capital each day, serving over one billion passengers a year. The most complex installations are on the Jubilee line, where Stratford has nine networked MxPro panels and Waterloo Tube station has five, while the deepest installation is at Hampstead, over 30 metres below ground level.
The complexity of the systems differs from station to station, but all are fully integrated with sprinkler systems and have a device to monitor the escalators, a location of particular importance in terms of fire safety. Many also have a repeater panel, which allows the fire system to be controlled and monitored from multiple locations within the station.
Approved to EN54 parts 2, 4 and 13, MxPro 5 panels can be used in single loop, single panel format or easily configured into high speed, 200 panel networks covering huge areas and tens of thousands of field devices. Advanced’s legendary ease of installation and configuration and wide peripheral range mean that MxPro is customisable to almost any application and it can be found in challenging and prestigious sites around the world. Advanced’s MxPro fire systems support two new technologies, the TouchControl touchscreen repeater and AlarmCalm complete false alarm management system
