Pfannenberg Offers Vibration-Resistant, Shockproof Flashing Lights & Sounders

Pfannenberg’s PATROL, PYRA and DS series Flashing Lights and Sounders meet the highest standards in terms of impact and vibration-resistance in a range of different protection classes. These devices have passed vibration tests conducted under DNV-GL guidelines. DNV-GL certification assures the operators of our signaling devices that they are of the highest quality and reliability.

Product Advantages

Outstanding impact and vibration-resistance
Our DNV-GL-certified signaling devices are impervious to vibration, jarring and impact. Their PCB components are attached very firmly to prevent damage from vibration. Furthermore, they are fitted with metal brackets which absorb or attenuate oscillation and vibration.

Higher resistance to impact and shock
In heavy industry or logistics, for example, signaling devices are exposed to particularly high levels of mechanical stress. For applications in these and other challenging areas, we offer DNV-GL certified signaling devices which also have IK08 protection classification. Even without a protective cage, they resist high levels of mechanical stress and are guaranteed to function reliably at all times.

Dust and water resistant, UV-stable, heat tolerant and frost proofed
Many of our DNV-GL-certified signaling devices are equipped with other features such as aluminum housing and have high protection classifications such as IP 66 or IP 67 which means that they are impervious to strong jets of water and short periods of immersion in water and to aggressive media. All this qualifies them for use in particularly challenging conditions.

Easy and safe planning: Pfannenberg Sizing Software PSS
Our Pfannenberg Sizing Software (PSS) is a cost-free and very user-friendly tool which delivers an immediate and informed recommendation on devices, avoiding expensive over-specification and risky under-specification at the planning stage or in a review of the configuration.

Immediately see device performance for a given space: Pfannenberg 3D Coverage
Our signaling devices are outstandingly efficient. The 3D-Coverage planning method along with the Pfannenberg Sizing Software provides reliable values for the length, width and height of the area guaranteed to be covered by the signal in relation to different environmental conditions.

Pfannenberg’s Marine Alarms Quality Recognized with MED Certification

Pfannenberg PATROL product line offer modern, visual and audible signaling devices to satisfy both requirements of the American Bureau of Shipping and the Marine Equipment Directive.

Emergencies aboard boats require immediate action, whether they are man overboard, generator failure or fire. To insure timely warnings of such events, visual and audible alarms need to offer superior coverage in rugged, weatherproof designs. Additionally, providing unique, distinctive boat warning for different events can allow the crew to react more quickly and more effectively.

What is the MED Marine Approval?

The MED Mark of Conformity confirms that a product or piece of equipment is approved for use on board for European ships and ships of countries which agreed to apply to the Marine Equipment Directive 96/98/EC. This is sometimes referred to as the ‘wheel mark’ and also known as M.E.D/MED approval or certification. It provides confirmation that the equipment or product is suitable for Marine Industry use.

All approved and authorized products are stored in the MarED databasewhich contains information about all authorized devices. Products are tested by an independent third party, for use in the marine environment before being granted an approval certificate.

Pfannenberg is proud to be one of the few companies to get the European Marine Equipment Directive (MED) Certification, recognizing the quality of our Marine fire alarm systems. This certification is also valid in the US with the Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) for testing and approvals according to the 96/98/EC Directive.

Our MED Certified visual and audible devices
Pfannenberg offers an extensive range of products and solutions designed specifically to withstand the standards of the Marine Industry. Our PATROL sounders and beacons are MED certified by Germanischer Lloyd (a Notified Body under the terms of the MED) who has confirmed that these products meet the requirements of the directive.

You can rely on Pfannenberg whenever you need fire protection alarm devices for ship and marine applications. Our Visual and Audible Signaling Devices for the Marine Industry features:

  • Non-metallic and corrosion-resistant housing
    (4X / IP 66 rated).
  • Multiple tones and separate control of horns and strobes for the best boat safety.
