DETECTION SYSTEMS


DETECTION SYSTEMS

Fast and efficient detection systems are the key success factor in fire prevention and fighting.

Choosing the right system, as well as the suitable location, number and type of sensors, are of the essence when it comes to designing any detection system (fire extinguishing control, fire alarm, alarm, emergency, alarm and/or evacuation plans).


CONVENTIONAL SYSTEMS

Suitable for small systems, they identify the zone where the alarm originated, with 2-wire lines per zone and a maximum capacity of 20 items each.


SMART SYSTEMS

These are versatile systems, suitable for point-to-point identification of each of the detectors and/or of any peripherals connected to the fire alarm panel. They may accommodate a large number of detectors, with connections to 99 or more detectors each, plus the possibility to have several loops for each alarm panel, depending on the model.

They are versatile enough to allow setting up a network of several panels, and thus expand system capacity, supplemented with graphics software, repeaters, and alphanumeric display panel for event registration purposes.Sensitivity of each detector may be regulated as a function of the facilities and/or risk covered by each.


ASPIRATED SMOKE SYSTEMS

They offer enhanced sensitivity vis-à-vis smart smoke detectors.

Their operating principle consists in ongoing sampling of ambient smoke through capillary tubes with calibrated orifices running throughout the protected area. The samples are analyzed using a laser camera which measures the amount of smoke in the air and, based on a comparison with pre-established thresholds, detects the whether a fire has started.

Identification is sectorized, so these systems may be used as peripherals by smart fire alarm panels, to which signals are sent out.


EXTINCTION CONTROL SUBSTATION

These stations are specifically designed for extinction system controls using cross-zone detection, i.e. the signal of the first detector triggers the alarm, while the signal from the second detector activates the extinction system.

It is fitted with devices that activate audible and visible alarms, adjustable trigger delays, and trigger block by means of abort execution switches.


DETECTION SYSTEM PERIPHERALS

These are basically the field elements making up the fire detection system, and responsible for detecting and raising alarms in the case of any potential fire event. They include:

  • Smoke detectors
  • Conventional and explosion- proof fire detectors
  • Combined smoke/temperature detectors
  • Gas detectors
  • Flame detectors
  • Smoke detection barriers
  • Manual push buttons
  • Sirens
  • Light alarms
  • Repeater stations

Through our engineering department, we design, supply and install detection systems suitable for each risk using UL/FM approved items, as per international standards.
