MILWAUKEE -- (September 29, 2000) -- The Milwaukee Brewers and Johnson Controls, Inc. have agreed to a partnership that entails the operation of the new 1.2 million square foot Miller Park facility.

JOHNSON CONTROLS, SIMPLEX INTEGRATED SOLUTION NOW UNDERWRITERS LABORATORIES-LISTED FOR SMOKE CONTROL

contemporary MILWAUKEE - (September 21, 2000) - Simplex fire alarm systems and Metasys building automation systems from Johnson Controls, Inc. are now Underwriters Laboratories (UL) listed for integrated smoke control applications.

"The combined solution can help make buildings safer by offering an approved way to initiate processes in an HVAC automation system based on alarms received from the fire alarm system," said Jim Hermann, fire products program manager for Johnson Controls. 

Building operators at a Metasys workstation can now instantly review changes-of -state, alarms, systems status and graphical displays of alarm status from the Simplex fire alarm system. If a fire occurs, the building automation system can automatically respond with HVAC control actions that help fight the spread of fire and smoke. 

Johnson Controls and Simplex earlier this year formed a global alliance to bring best in class integrated building systems to customers using Simplex fire detection and alarm systems and the Johnson Controls Metasy building automation system, which controls heating, ventilating, air conditioning, security and access control systems. 

Simplex, based in Westminster, Mass, is a multinational company that provides fire detection, security, building communications and workforce management systems to customers worldwide. In each of the past three years, Simplex has earned the distinction of being on Forbes magazine's annual list of the 500 Top Private Companies. J
