The EST3 - All Good Things Must Come to an End
Edwards has announced that new orders for the EST3 fire alarm panel will halt on December 31, 2023. Edwards will continue to provide parts and supporting materials for all their products to the extent possible.
If you recently installed new EST3 products, know that you will experience a full lifetime of quality performance from your system. And when you’re ready, Edwards and Performance Systems Integration (PSI) are prepared to support your upgrade to the next generation of Edwards panels.
At PSI, our factory-trained and NICET-certified technicians provide comprehensive fire and life safety services—monitoring, testing and inspecting, system maintenance, installations, and code compliance consultations—all under one agreement. Contact us today to schedule your free consultation.
EST Panel Compatibility
The EST3 Life Safety Platform entered the market in 1996 as one of the most advanced life safety systems available. Edwards then introduced the EST4 as the next-generation life safety system platform in 2019. The EST4 is fully backward compatible and based on the newest, most advanced technology available.
PSI has been an Edwards Strategic Partner since its founding and has provided industry-leading support for the entire Edwards product line. We have embraced the introduction of the EST4 and already have technicians trained with experience accumulated since 2019 in all markets, providing design, installation support, inspection, testing, and maintenance services.
If you currently have an EST3 operating in your facility, rest assured that we can, and will, continue to support your system. Of course, it is always prudent to plan for your system’s inevitable end of life. PSI can help evaluate your facility and provide professional, code-compliant, guidance for planning and budgeting.
Since the EST4 is fully backward compatible with the EST3 product line, we can help develop a plan to systematically upgrade over time so that your budget can be spread out over several years rather than taking an emergency budget hit if the system is compromised.
