LOOPDRIVE is a live-saving add-on to any existing Voice-Alarm system. In case of an evacuation due to fire, it is essential that the Voice-alarm broadcast remains playing for as long as possible to guide everyone to a save exit. During a fire, sounders and cabling, incl. fire-rated cabling, will be affected by the raising intense heat and eventually loose its transmission-path function.
LOOPDRIVE locates any audio transmission-path failure and isolates it to avoid consequential damages.
At the same time it re-routes the audio-path from the Voice-Alarm system to the sounders and in less than 4 seconds after any failure, the sounders are up and running again and broadcast of the Voice-alarm signal continues.
