Klaxon are demonstrating the industry changing ES-PD at FIREX 2018

The ES-PD brings wide area signalling into the modern era being the first large area siren operating from a drone.

The restraints of all other sirens are removed for the ES-PD which can simply fly over any area that requires audible notification. Operation of the drone can be automated using DJI software and the siren tones can be operated using 868MHz radio from a portable console or switch unit.

As with all ES systems the ES-PD is able to output tones and/or pre-recorded messages for clear instruction. 

Portable wide-area siren

Portable wide-area siren

The Klaxon ES-P is a robust, sophisticated and rapidly deployable early warning system that offers a viable, portable option for many wide-area signalling applications. It is a portable version of Klaxon’s existing wide area systems for ‘COMAH, Evacuation and Lockdown’ situations.

While fixed sirens will always be required, it is often necessary to have a back-up in case a fixed unit is damaged or faulty. The ES-P is ideal for this purpose and meets the demands from industry for an early warning system that can be easily and quickly moved from location to location.

As standard it is designed to be powered from the 12v power socket of a vehicle, while its rubber-coated magnetic feet allow it to be placed virtually anywhere, including on a vehicle roof. These features make it ideally suited for emergency and civil defence operations, quarrying and open cast mining, petrochemical facilities, event evacuation, railway maintenance and many other agile, mass notification applications.      

The control case is also available as a ‘portable control room’ for the ES-X and ES-S models. In this case, instead of the 12v vehicle power socket, a 230v AC connection and backup battery is provided. The connection utilises UHF/VHF radio communications between the case and the site sirens.

Key features of the ES-P include:

  • Audibility of 98dB(A) at 30 metres
  • Live PA via handheld microphone
  • 12v fused vehicle power supply plug
  • Silent test facility
  • Adjustable tones and operation via programming port
  • Self-healing short circuit on output amplifier
  • Quick-lok speaker cable between control case and horn for quick and tidy setup
  • Siren activity and fault report log stored in NVM
  • Integrated CMC 4 with mag-key lock for authorised operation
  • Case rated to IP67 when closed
  • Operating temperature range of -20 to +60 ˚C

For installations requiring versatile, reliable and secure portable wide area signalling, Klaxon’s ES-P is the ideal solution. For more information go to the product page >

CPD Seminars

CPD Seminars

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is the term used to describe the learning activities professionals engage in to develop and enhance their abilities. It enables learning to become conscious and proactive, rather than passive and reactive.

CPD combines different methodologies to learning, such as training workshops, conferences and events, e-learning programs, best practice techniques and ideas sharing, all focused for an individual to improve and have effective professional development.

The following CPD Seminars are available:

Introduction To En54 Part 23

This seminar provides information on the new en standard for the use and function of visual alarm devices within automatic fire alarm devices.

Effective Mass Notification

An introduction to providing an effective solution for audible warning over large areas. This seminar explains the basic design process along with clarification of terms that can be miss-leading or confusing to those responsible for sourcing such systems.
