    • Automist uses unmodified third-party certified EN 54 detectors with the product. 
    • Automist uses an Apollo wireless battery-powered alarm certified to EN 14604:2005 within the product. Additional third-party testing was done due to the addition of the Plumis wireless transceiver to this product. 
  • Pressure Equipment Directive - the pressures (100bar) and volumes (1.8 litres) of the piping assembly, containing only water, are too low to trigger third-party verification and the CE Mark. It relies only on SEP (Sound Engineering Practice), which is achieved by the use of certified hoses, as per the hose specification found in Appendix C of the DIOM.
