Are your maritime systems all up to speed? Don’t take a chance when it comes to fire detection!

At Satcom Global, we pride ourselves on building tailored satellite communications solutions for ships of all shapes and sizes including VSAT, and we work closely with our sister company AND Group to meet the ever increasingly technological demands on board vessels with expert integration of maritime systems.

AND Group specialises in marine and offshore products and systems for a range of uses including anti-piracy, navigation, CCTV, Public Address Systems, communications and fire detection. With over 30 years' experience in the maritime market and with strong long-term partnerships with  the world's leading marine equipment manufacturers, AND Group has the expertise and knowledge to ensure customers receive the most relevant, reliable and cost effective solutions on the market.

Today, AND Group would like to alert customers to an important announcement from Autronica, regarding the ‘end of life support' for their fire detection range of equipment including BS-100.  From  1st January 2016, replacement Fire Detection devices for any of the following conventional and analogue addressable systems will no longer be available to purchase:

  • Autronica BX-10
  • Autronica BX-20
  • Autronica BX-40
  • Autronica BS-30
  • Autronica BS-60
  • Autronica BS-100

AND Group is committed to supporting customers in the long-term and are passionate about ensuring they provide the latest fully supported safety systems going forward.  To this end, AND Group are offering customers a last chance to purchase Autronica spares parts for the affected Autronica systems and ensuring no-one is left with an unsupportable BS-100 safety system in 2016. Alternatively AND Group is in a position to provide retrofit solutions to ensure vessels and offshore installations maintain a fully supported system with an on-going service life once the changes come into play.

Please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly marine and offshore systems team at [email protected] as soon as possible to discuss which spare parts are currently available for your Autronica system, and how to futureproof your device with a retrofit.
