Hochiki Europe will be demonstrating its next generation of emergency lighting system, FIREscape Nepto at the the Fire Safety Event (FSE) at the NEC, Birmingham this month (25-27 April).

FIREscape Nepto brings with it a suite of new features and benefits to its FIREscape range, which launched in 2009, in a bid to revolutionise the emergency lighting market. 

The new system is BS 5266 compliant and is based around an addressable, emergency lighting control panel with addressable, self-contained LED-based luminaires and exit signs running on an extra-low operating voltage.

FIREscape Nepto is quick and easy to install as well as less costly to operate, with aesthetic enhancements and a range of new features including the ability to self-test and monitor itself and improved photometry and battery life.

The new system is also scalable thanks to its new networking capabilities and is backwards compatible with the existing panels and devices within the older FIREscape range.

The team behind the new design are also working on a cloud-based subscription service which is set to be released later this year. This service will enable remote access via internet enabled devices, providing system notifications and the ability to monitor and interrogate several client sites from anywhere in the world.

Promising to be the best event yet, the Fire Safety Event features CPD-accredited seminars, networking opportunities and various live demonstrations and talks.

Hochiki Europe will be speaking in the Innovation and Regulation theatre on day two about what future technology might look like for the fire industry. Discussing how cloud computing will provide greater insight for both end users, installation companies, rescue services and legislators.

As well as FIREscape Nepto, Hochiki will also be showcasing its industry leading Analogue Addressable Fire Detection range, ESP Intelligent, their combined fire and emergency lighting system, FIREscape+ and their specialist fire detection technology ranges for Intrinsically Safe and Explosion Proof and their portfolio of Marine Approved products.

Commenting on the event, Nathan Hudson said: “We’re looking forward to visiting Birmingham and attending the Fire Safety Event, especially as this will be the first time our brand-new emergency lighting system FIREscape Nepto will be demonstrated in the UK.

“With the recent announcement about our £5.5million investment in the new facility in Kent, the future is exciting for Hochiki Europe and our customers. This event is a great opportunity to meet customers face to face and find out how we can help them with their life safety projects”

The Fire Safety Event takes place at the NEC, Birmingham, from the 25-27 April and Hochiki Europe will be on stand 3a/D55 to demo its range of life safety products.
