ADPRO SmokeTrace, a downloadable software application for the FastTrace 2/2E Remotely Managed Multi-service Gateway (RMG), provides remote visual verification of smoke. The analytic is designed to provide reliable visual confirmation of smoke developing from a fire. The system that is triggered by the smoke alarm of an existing traditional smoke detection system analyzes the images from strategically-placed cameras or a PTZ camera to confirm the presence of smoke. The images, including a bounding box that highlights the smoke, are handled by the FastTrace 2/2E and transmitted to a remote central monitoring station for assessment and appropriate action.
Potter Electric Signal Co.
The DDA provides early detection of smoke and combustion products present in air moving through HVAC ducts in commercial, industrial, and residential applications. It is compatible with the PFC-6000 series addressable FACPs and any panel which utilizes the Potter/Nohmi addressable protocol. The DDA uses state-of-the-art addressable sensors and control modules to provide flexibility in tackling demanding applications. With a listed air velocity of 100 to 4,000 ft/minute, it will function in an array of conditions and duct systems. The STN sampling tubes do not require tools for installation or testing, as a test port is available for testing the installed unit as required.
Potter Electric Signal Co.
Potter's PFC-6006 is designed and configured ideally for monitoring a wet or dry fire sprinkler system. The system includes six inputs which are selectable from a menu of options including water flow and two-wire smoke detection. The panel offers a one amp power supply for notification and remote accessories. The panel includes a fully programmable two line digital alarm communicator as well as an Ethernet connection. The Ethernet connection is multi-purpose allowing an installer to program the panel, e-mail and report using the IP communicator. The panel is backed by a five year warranty, standard on all Potter fire products.
System Sensor’s new intelligent version of FAAST Fire Alarm Aspiration Sensing Technology provides very early warning of smoke for high-value and critical facilities, as well as within challenging applications. The FAAST detector’s newly added ability to directly integrate with fi re alarm systems enables it to supply more detailed alarm, fault and trouble information to the Fire Alarm Control Panel, thereby simplifying system monitoring, maintenance and overall design. The new intelligent FAAST evolves beyond the common scenarios of monitoring one or more standalone aspiration systems to create high level interfaces between the aspirating smoke detection system and the fire alarm system.
Honeywell Security & Communications
Honeywell Security Group introduces new mobile apps for its popular LYNX Touch 5100 self-contained security system. The new L5100 Connect iOS app allows homeowners to control the system anywhere on premises within their Wi-Fi coverage areas on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The app provides local control of the security system, and if so equipped, control of Z-Wave enabled lights, locks, thermostats and more. This approach helps homeowners save money on energy and utility bills, conserve resources and live a more comfortable, efficient lifestyle.
Gamewell-FCI by Honeywell has introduced the S3 Series fire alarm control panel that features an intuitive touch screen display. The product can be used as a standalone system or as part of an extensive network serving the fire protection and emergency communication needs of an individual building or a multi-building campus. The touch screen device has three main functions, including: system status, event details and service mode.
The DTK-120SRD Critical Load surge protective device from DITEK provides 120V, 20A surge protection for life safety equipment, such as an alarm panel circuit. The device also features dry contacts for remote notification of surge protection status, a set of contacts for alarm supervision and more. The multi-stage, hybrid design provides filtering and lower clamp levels. In addition, the device meets governmental and military specifications for fire panel applications.
Honeywell Fire Systems
NOTIFIER by Honeywell has released the First Command emergency communication system (ECS), which interfaces with any existing commercial fire alarm to provide pre-recorded emergency messages and alerts. The system can help small, standalone facilities be assured they have an emergency communication system that is not only reliable, but also economical. Users can pre-record both general and emergency messages to then be broadcasted live in the event of an emergency. Each system can support up to 8 remote control panels and microphone consoles and as many as 14 pre-recorded messages can be used for any one facility.
Honeywell Fire Systems
Silent Night by Honeywell introduces the Farenhyt IDP-FIRE-CO detector, a device that uses four different sensors to detect fire and carbon monoxide and eliminates the need for two separate units. The detector uses a B200S sounder base to emit customized tones that differentiate between a fire and CO in the air. The four different sensors look for smoke, CO, light/flames and heat to accurately identify an event. In addition, the device has a nuisance alarm rejection capability that can serve well in areas that have burnt food, shower steam, frequent temperature changes and more.
• Meet both fire and carbon monoxide (CO) code requirements with a single, addressable device.
• The Advanced Multi-Criteria Fire/CO Detector (AMCF/CO) combines award-winning fire and CO protection using only four wires and one footprint for the most advanced, cost-effective and attractive detection solution available.
• For fire, the detector combines four, separate, sensing elements in one unit (smoke, CO, light/flame and heat) to sense multiple components of a fire.
• Enhanced sensitivity to real fire with heightened immunity to nuisance particulate.
• For CO, the detector’s electrochemical sensing cell creates a separate signal for life safety CO detection.
• The AMCF/CO works with the System Sensor B200S intelligent sounder base to provide both Temp 3 and Temp 4 signals for fire and CO. The B200S can be synchronized with System Sensor AV devices and used as part of the evacuation signal.
