Advanced panels protect flagship Crossrail station

12 November 2015

Travellers passing through the flagship Tottenham Court Road Station on London's Northern Line and the new £14.8 billion Crossrail network, set to open in 2018, will be protected by intelligent fire systems from Advanced

The combined Crossrail and London Underground station, which originally opened in 1900 as part of the Central London Railway, also serves the Central Line and the Charing Cross branch of the Northern Line. The entire station has undergone a major reconstruction to integrate with the Crossrail service and it is expected to cater for up to 200,000 passengers every day once the new line opens.

Transport for London (TFL), specified Advanced's industry-leading MxPro fire panel range for the station due to its quality, reliability and ease of use. Installed by NG Bailey there are currently two MxPro 4 networked panels installed in the station, which will increase to four when two MxPro 5 panels are added to the Crossrail sections which is due to be completed in 2018. The flexibility of MxPro means that these can be integrated seamlessly into the existing system, along with additional components.

Peter Patrick, Senior Project Manager and spokesperson for NG Bailey said: “The MxPro 4 panels are one of the best open protocol panels currently on the market and Advanced is the one of the preferred panel suppliers for London Underground control and indicating equipment. We find installing and configuring Advanced systems easy.”

MxPro offers customers a choice of two panel ranges, four detector protocols and a completely open installer network, backed up by free training and support. MxPro panels can be used in single loop, single panel format or easily configured into high speed, multi-loop panels in 200 node networks covering huge areas. Advanced’s legendary ease of installation and configuration and wide peripheral range make it customisable to almost any application.

Amanda Hope, Advanced’s UK Business and Development Manager, said: “The new Crossrail system has been in the planning for many years and is scheduled to open in 2018. It’s a key part of the London transport infrastructure and will be used by millions of passengers, so a high quality and reliable fire system is absolutely essential. We believe that the MxPro panels tick all the boxes for the combined station at Tottenham Court Road, delivering a future proof solution with the option to expand and enhance the system in future.”

The MxPro 4 system is fully compliant with relevant EN54 Parts 2 and 4, and backed up with Advanced’s renowned customer care and technical support. MxPro 5 its more advanced successor is approved to EN54 parts 2, 4 and 13 and is backwards compatible with MxPro 4.
