ATLANTA, Jan. 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Telular Corporation (Nasdaq:WRLS), a leader in alarm and event monitoring solutions and services, announces that the Telguard TG-7FS cellular communicator for 3G/4G networks is compliant with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 2013 edition for sole path communications. The NFPA 2013 Edition allows sole path cellular communications to be supervised for commercial fire systems once every 60 minutes, instead of every five minutes as required by the 2010 edition. In conjunction with code compliance, Telguard has reduced sole-path service pricing to a more economical price.
The NFPA 2013, section 18.104.22.168.5 Single Communications Path, allows the TG-7FS to serve as the primary communications path for commercial fire alarm systems, replacing all of the landlines customers currently dedicate to their master control unit. By being able to signal the central station within sixty minutes of a failure of the communication path, the TG-7FS can be installed as the sole path for commercial fire installations. UL864 listed and dial capture-based, the TG-7FS gives security dealers a cellular alarm communications solution for both new and existing commercial customers who want to eliminate their landlines and save money. In addition to serving as a sole path solution, the TG-7FS universal communicator can also be installed as part of commercial fire systems for primary or backup communications.
"We are proud to once again deliver a cellular solution that keeps pace with NFPA guidelines," said Shawn Welsh, vice president of marketing and business development, Telular. "Adding NFPA 72 2013 compliance to the TG-7FS, a true drop-in replacement for the landlines installed with existing fire systems, is another example of our commitment to product innovation. To reflect the lower cellular supervision rate, we've lowered our price for sole-path supervision by nearly 30%. This should make the adoption of sole-path cellular systems an even more attractive option for both dealers and end users."
