The Advance of Wireless Fire Detection - Part 3
Hochiki Echo - A New Generation of Hybrid Wireless Fire Detection.
Ekho is a wireless based family of products which can be fully integrated into Hochiki’s renowned ESP intelligent hardwired system. At the core of the system is the wireless Translator module.
It is hard-wired to the fire alarm control panel loop and communicates continuously with the wireless devices. Wireless Expander modules are used to extend the radio mesh network, increasing the reach and capacity of the overall system.
Self-Configuring Mesh Network
The Ekho Expander modules create a self-configuring mesh network, which constantly relays field device signals back to the Translator module.
Each wireless device determines which Expander has the strongest signal path and automatically connects to it. The Expander mesh network guarantees an “always on” connection between the wireless devices and the Translator/fire control panel
