Communication and signalling protocols for fire alarm networks: design limitations and impact on the design/testing commissioning of the finished product

The development of more sophisticated networks for fire alarm and

communications systems may have widened the gap between the manufacturer

and the electrical engineer/fire protection engineer responsible for defining the

project requirements and articulating this is the design and specifications. The

complexity of codes and standards also makes this an increasing challenge for manufacturers, engineers and authorities.

Donald Brown has spent the last 30 years in the fire alarm industry. He worked his

way up through the technical side of various fire alarm companies including

Edwards and Siemens.

He was has acted as the Branch Sales manager for Siemens and is now in Siemens

Control Products and Systems in the position of Western Canadian Territory

Manager. Don is a founding member of the Canadian Fire Alarm Association BC

Chapter and is currently the CFAA secretary in BC.
