Not long ago, a major project was completed at JTI (JT International Germany GmbH) that perfectly demonstrated the performance capabilities of CON-Xnet. At the JTI site in Trier, a plant at the cutting edge of global technology, all production steps from raw tobacco storage to the production of various tobacco products are brought together under one roof. More than 50 billion cigarettes are produced here every year and are sold not just in Germany but all over the world.
When it came to modernising the fire alarm technology, the main task was to replace the existing fire alarm system, which was made up of various control panels and fire detectors, and to construct a state-of-the-art fire alarm system in its place. The first step was to decide how we were going to replace 15 networked fire alarm control panels comprising some 4500 devices, the connected fire brigade peripherals and a management system.
We designed our plan of action in such a way that the modernisation did not involve any major changes within the meaning of DIN 14675. For this reason, we did not need to carry out any large-scale changes to bring the system in line with the latest version of the relevant standards. Of course, all the software and hardware used meets the requirements of EN54/DIN 14675 and has VdS approval too.
Once installed and operational, the network and all devices were then updated with the latest CON-Xnet software during live operation, before being connected to the higher-level management system.
