UL 864 10th edition Fire-Protective Signalling Systems

The EIS Ethernet Interconnect Switch and the EIRX Industrial Managed Ethernet Switch from Contemporary Controls comply with the requirements of Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 864 Control Units and Accessories for Fire Alarm Systems 10th Edition.

The UL recognized component mark is rarely seen by the customer, but is often part of a larger system that is UL Listed by the fire alarm supplier. A UL recognized component has already been evaluated and tested in accordance with UL's component safety standards, streamlining the qualification process for the system supplier. By having the fire alarm system supplier specify a Contemporary Controls'EIS or EIRX switch as a component, the supplier is not required to perform additional testing on the component. Several fire alarm and security firms have already specified the EIS and EIRX series as part of their system, thereby improving their time-to-market. Learn more.
