The History of
From the dawn of time, passing information has been troublesome. Word of mouth quickly meant misinformation was rampant, however, they had a solution: church bells. No misinformation, just a bell to get everyone’s attention. Once they met, they would spread the information. This technology was then utilized in the 20th century as motor driven sirens were invented: rotating motors generated howling noises, allowing the siren to reach more people in less time.
In the 1950’s, industrial use of „warning“ sirens become a commonplace Germany. Civil Defense Authorities and Fire Brigades used the sirens to inform („wake up“) their teams to come together and to warn the public of imminent danger.
In the early 90’s, electronic sirens entered the market due to the limitations of the electric-motor and pneumatic sirens. No longer were you limited to just a few tones.
Experts in the field of electronics, acoustics and information/communication technology worked for years to mitigate these limitations.
Sophisticated electronic sirens, like SiRcom’s own, have revolutionized the industry; eliminating all the draw backs associated with motor driven sirens while taking advantage of the efficiency and minimal power draw.
With our TimesTower (TiTo) and the integration of Earth Quake Sensors, SiRcom is proud to achieve new standards for highly unique turn-key-solutions.
SiRcom in Action
Our technology has a proven track record with thousands of towers installed around the world!
The SiRcom team invested thousands of working hours in the design and development of the state-of-the-art warning and information system technology. Based on the longstanding experience of the team and the sophisticated products, SiRcom belongs to the top market leaders of the world in warning business.
Sirens of the SiBT/SiDES Series can be easily installed on freestanding poles, on the plant structure or on top of buildings. The comparatively lightweight of the siren head does not impose a significant load on the structure of the building.
The SiBT/SiDES electronic siren consists of:
The modular siren head (speaker array), the controller, housed in a steel, stainless steel or aluminum cabinet. The controller incorporates all the necessary electronics.
A local control and test panel, communication and power supply equipment.
Finally the technical support, training, manuals, documentation and SiRcom´s specially developed software SiCAS enables the user to operate very professional and in a convenient manner.
The Control and Management Software SiCAS is designed to allow one or several user(s) to remote control the sirens, while maintaining the highest security standards for any siren-function within any communication system. Security and Reliability are our biggest goals.
At any time, the alarm-activation has highest priority. Showing the operator the system-performance as well any technical status of each siren within a system.
The SiCAS-SW can be used as a single application as well as multi-centre-architecture with a priority- hierarchy.
Monitoring the siren-functionality is a permanent task. Reporting to the control centre can be done automatically or on request.
SiRcom offers to customize the Control-Application as well, the Screen-Designs as per customer needs.
& Control Systems
The Communication Solution is flexible and depends on the available infrastructure, operational requirements and overall system structure needs. SiRcom offers customized solutions for any available line- or wireless- based infrastructure.
From a single Control Room for a local siren control, to nation-wide multi-path communication system, by all different means can be implemented.
Todays highly available data-services allow a wide range of operational features where SiRcom takes care of it’s availability and data security to ensure secure siren-control and performance at any time and under any circumstances.
Knowing that the system is in perfect condition at stand-by or in-operation is our aim.
