Jeron Pro-Alert™ 480 System Undergoing Compliance Testing for new Underwriters Laboratories UL2525 Standard for Area of Rescue Assistance

By: PRLog

NILES, Ill. - Jan. 26, 2022 - PRLog -- While at the upcoming California Automatic Fire Alarm Association (CAFAA) Tradeshow (Palm Springs, February 2-4), attendees will see the Pro-Alert Area of Rescue Assistance system manufactured by Jeron Electronic Systems, Inc. CAFAA actively participates in technical committees for NFPA72 and is involved in adoption of the UL2525 standard. This tradeshow is a unique opportunity for Jeron to reach industry experts and announce their upcoming compliance with UL2525.

UL2525 is the new standard for Two-Way Communications Systems for Area of Rescue Assistance. Through the UL2525 standard, Authority Having Jurisdiction can require, by the building code in force, that systems meet this new UL Standard. The Jeron Pro-Alert 480 System is currently undergoing compliance testing for UL2525 and is already compliant with NFPA 72, ADA, and IBC standards. According to Ericka Baran, VP Sales and Marketing for Jeron Electronic Systems, "Jeron believes in Underwriters Laboratories standards for all the markets we serve and for our systems to be listed for appropriate UL standards.  We fully expect our Pro-Alert 480 system to be listed in the near term for the UL2525 standard."

Even at the NFPA conference (June 2022), Jeron will highlight the Pro-Alert 480 Area of Rescue System used for emergency alerting and communications.  Pro-Alert 480 is a life-safety emergency intercom solution typically used in an area of refuge during a fire or other emergency, when an evacuation may not be safe or possible.  Occupants can communicate with an on-site or off-site call center until help arrives.  This 'area of rescue' is typically located in elevator lobbies/stairwells in high-rise, mixed use, commercial and hospitality facilities.

Pro-Alert 480 features:

  • A variety of flexible station options, including highly visible vandal-resistant stations with mushroom-style buttons for easy call activation.  
  • At-a-glance information for rescue workers to pinpoint the exact location of the caller, allows them to provide immediate assistance without having to search for the origin.  
  • Common Cat-5 bus cabling or CI-Cabling for addressable call stations. Ability to conduct hands free, two-way communication with the on-site control station or off-site call center.
  • Reduced costs and installation time because of its relatively minimal need for conduit, wire and labor.

Jeron products are engineered and manufactured in the USA for more than 55 years. For more information regarding the Pro-Alert 480 Area of Rescue Communications solution, visit or call 800.621.1903.
