We are delighted to announce that Eurotech Fire Systems Ltd are finalists in two categories for the Fire & Security Matters Awards 2023.
The Awards celebrate innovation and achievements in the fire and security sectors and aim to promote the importance of innovation while also underlining the highest standards of excellence.
Eurotech are proud to be named as finalists in the following categories:
🔥 Fire Safety Manufacturer of the Year – for our added-value customer service
🔥 Fire Safety Project of the Year – for our award-winning Sygno-fi by Eurotech range installed by Myles Evans at Jennery Associates at the incredible Port Lympne Safari Park.
The awards ceremony will take place on 15th June at the Coventry Building Society Arena, where the winners will be announced.

We are issuing this technical bulletin regarding the use of EURV-MRU 240V Mains Rated Relay Unit (and derivative) mains switching module. The EURV-MRU relay unit upgrades a standard output module to a unit capable of switching mains voltages and higher currents.
The wired, loop powered variant of the product only may be impacted by the following issue.
It may occur only if a specific and defined set of conditions is met:
Under normal operation, the panel actions the output module which initiates the EURV-MRU module (when connected) in order to switch AC mains supply (usually this follows an event/alarm condition from CIE, which is fully logged/recorded in the systems event log).
In the event of a short circuit on the loop wiring, the loop isolator either side of the fault will open as a result. The panel will put in place the proper reaction to the short circuit condition: may vary by control panel type but mostly powering from both ends of the loop. Devices either side of the affected loop isolators (each side of the short circuit) should continue to communicate with the panel.
The output module has a bi-stable signal relay, so it remains in its last active condition even if the module has lost power.
An issue with the EURV-MRU has identified a defect which may impair the reconnection capability of the loop isolators.
This means that a larger part of the loop may remain isolated between the short circuit and the resulting open isolators even when power is applied to both ends of the loop. The effects are greater if the short circuit occurs close to panel loop output (loop-out).
The panel will indicate (device missing[s]) fault for the affected devices, however the displaying of any alarm condition will always take priority on the display.
The wireless variants are not impacted at all (the EURV-MRU unit can easily be upgraded to a wireless variant by adding the end of line module and connecting to a wireless output module).
Should you find any of your systems at risk of the above situation, please consider one of the two possible alternative solutions below:
– option A, with isolator modules spur
– or option B, if you have already on site an external power supply (24V PSU).
We will provide you with a pre-cabled: inside it you will find 3 isolator modules that will spur the EURV-MRU form the main loop.
Such configuration ensures the EURV-MRU operation does not affect the loop in any conditions and ensures that the EURV-MRU operation is maintained regardless the position of the potential short.
You can add an external power supply (24V PSU) to decouple the mains relay from the loop, using the end-of-line module paired with EURV-MRU.
The EURV-MRU can be considered a type 2 component from the EN 54 perspective, therefore use of a non EN54-4 approved power supply is also acceptable.
For any sites that may be affected with this issue, we ask you to contact us immediately to arrange replacement of the EURV-MRU 240V Mains Rated Relay Unit.
We are delighted to announce that our head office has now expanded to incorporate No. 18 Stratfield Park!
Many plans are already in progress for the extra space including:
✔️ larger warehousing facilities
✔️ dedicated system pre-programming area
✔️ new customer training room with interactive facilities
✔️ new reception and welcome area
✔️ larger kitchen and catering facilities
Michelle Agius, MD at Eurotech says: “We’re excited at the opportunity to expand our HQ and it’s come at just the right time as the business continues to grow. The dedicated Eurotech car park makes it easier for people to visit, and the enhanced in-house training facilities will really benefit our valued partners.”
Our Regional Sales Manager, James Aherne, is running the adidas Manchester Marathon this April in aid of our chosen charity Portsmouth Hospitals Trust, and the Irish Cancer Society.
Portsmouth Hospitals Charity raises funds to help make a positive difference for patients, their families and the staff who support their care. Donations enable facilities improvements, equipment purchases and also supports research and innovation with the aim of enhancing patient care and staff wellbeing.
PHC is very close to the hearts of many of us at Eurotech and has been chosen specifically in memory of Vince and Barbara Agius, the parents of Michelle, Vincent and Caron Agius, for the amazing care and support they recently showed to them all.
The Irish Cancer Society are a community determined to help anyone affected by cancer in Ireland.
They provide free information and care, and fund cancer research to find better treatments that will save more lives. They work to keep cancer on the Government’s agenda, to make sure the Irish healthcare system functions as well as possible to help cancer patients and their loved ones through their diagnosis.
The adidas Manchester Marathon will take place on Sunday 16th April 2023.
James says: “Training is going really well so far and I’m looking forward to running the race in April. Portsmouth Hospitals Charity is an amazing cause that we already raised an incredible amount for with our skydive last year, and the Irish Cancer Society is a cause that is close to my heart. I’d love to be able to help both charities further so any donations would be really appreciated.”
Eurotech are pleased to offer BAFE SP205-certified fire risk assessments and fire strategy planning for our customer’s sites to meet all of the requirements of the fire safety order and the 2022 enhancements published in May 2022.
Our fire risk assessor is one of a very small number of certified designers for the evacuation systems required post the Hackitt report for high-rise residential buildings (18m and above) under the BAFE SP207 scheme. These systems are now mandatory in England and Wales, coming into effect from December 1st 2022.
Unlike normal fire alarm systems, these have very particular design criteria to meet regulation requirements. Our service provides guidance, system design and the fire detection and alarm system to meet BS 8629 standards under BAFE certification.
To find out more about the support that Eurotech can offer, or for a confidential discussion please contact your Regional Support Manager.
