KAC’s M8 Triple Pole Call Point device

Specialist evacuation device developer the KAC Alarm Company has extended its security range with a new Triple Pole Call Point designed to provide greater functionality for the access control market.

The M8 device is specifically for use with internal security-controlled locking systems and provides a compliment to KAC’s double and single pole variants.

The third pole provides additional flexibility to activate a local alarm or sounder or to connect to the building’s security system.

Activating a combined evacuation response from a single device supports today’s growing demand for building system integration.

Raxa Chauhan, KAC’s product manager, commented: “KAC is renowned for Call Point manufacturing having pioneered the technology more than 40 years ago. The market for security devices presents a key growth opportunity. The new M8 device, with its triple pole feature, is ideal for integrated systems where both access control and security monitoring is required.”

Chauhan continued: “As the M8 has a third pole it’s able to switch three separate circuits. This ensures failsafe unlocking of the exit and supports Best Practice evacuation in the event of an emergency. With its contemporary, installer-friendly design and choice of security function markings, this device can adapt to meet the needs of any indoor security Call Point application, in turn achieving the fastest and most cost-effective installation.”

The M8 Triple Pole Call Point extends KAC’s security device range, which includes indoor and outdoor Call Points for door security and evacuation, AV devices and a choice of switches and accessories.
