Mass Notification

state-of-the-art mass notification systems

MCS specializes in providing state-of-the-art mass notification systems and solutions for new facility construction and for building retrofits. Our staff of expert systems technicians uses a wide variety of building mass notification products to design and build a solution that’s right for your needs.

We recently sent technicians to the US Territory of Guam and provided indoor emergency mass notification system (MNS) design and installation as part of the most advanced and integrated MNS to be specified to date.  In this installation we used Cooper Notification’s WAVES (Wireless Audio Visual Emergency System) Autonomous Control Unit (ACU-340).  The ACU-340 is a supervised Individual Building Emergency Communications System, which provides supervised paging, background music, messaging, and emergency voice communications with 24 VDC battery backup. The ACU-340 is a UFC-compliant (Unified Facilities Criteria) Individual Building System, which provides full control of building notification appliances such as loudspeakers and strobe lights. The ACU-340, which includes a WAVES transceiver, interface, and antenna, can be controlled and monitored by a base-wide WAVES Mass Notification System (MNS). The WAVES base station can send messages to one ACU-340 or multiple ACUs and tie the indoor system to an outdoor MNS.

For federal government customers, MCS is a team member on SGIS’s Navy Mass Notification Systems contractto supply the Marines with site surveys, integration services, installation and technical support.
