Next-gen detectors to enhance fire safety in buildings

July 04, 2017

undefinedBuilding facilities managements can benefit from a new range of next-generation smoke detectors launched by Honeywell.

The Xtralis VESDA aspirating smoke detectors is aimed towards setting a new benchmark in the industry for reliable early warning smoke detection.

Xtralis VESDA-E VEP offers improved detection performance – one and a half times greater sensitivity than its earlier model and up to six times better dust rejection to minimise nuisance alarms, saving building owners significant potential costs from fire department calls.

The series uses the Flair Detection Technology whose particle characterisation capability provides analytics for targeted detection as well as efficient and effective response.

VESDA-E VEP enhances the user experience with out-of–the-box operation utilising auto configuration to aid commissioning, an intuitive 3.5” LCD touch screen display for simplified status investigation and wireless remote review with the iVESDA app for proactive maintenance.

New standard features including built-in Ethernet and wi-fi provide ease of connectivity with commonly used handheld devices and the PC-based Xtralis VSM monitoring package.

The new features are:

•         Seamless retrofit options

•         Longer pipe runs for convenient detector mounting

•         Reduce maintenance costs by extending detector coverage up to 20% in high-ceiling environments

•         Compatible with existing VESDAnet installations allowing for monitoring of both VESDA-E and legacy detectors via the latest iVESDA application.
