Fire Detection

The FALCONnet fire detection system consists of a 4 loop analogue fire detection panel and separate touch screen based control and indicating equipment (CIE). Up to 64 devices can be networked to form a single system for large sites. CIE and panel operate in a redundant ring network and communicate over IP. The fire detection panel supports the following features:

Enhanced System Protocol

Noise Immunity

Unlike most existing fire detection communication protocols, each ESP message incorporates a checksum which provides comprehensive error checking. This, together with acknowledgement handshaking for output commands, makes ESP immune to noise and other communication problems such as loop crosstalk, thereby eliminating false alarms due to data corruption.

System Response

ESP operates using a relatively low transmission rate enabling reliable error free communication over long distances using the many industry standard fire cables. Overall polling rate is approx. 7.5 seconds per loop. A built in Interrupt system ensures fast response from devices as required by today's systems and standards. An interrupt is generated when a field device is activated. The system can guarantee finding the interrupting device from any address on the loop within 1.5 seconds.

High Performance Smoke Chamber

Fire Detection devices

Research found that the angle of internal optics within the Photoelectric smoke chamber could minimise the differences between the smoke particles produced by flaming and smouldering fires.

By honing this angle our manufacturers developed the ‘Flat Response’ chamber in the Optical Smoke detector that gave very similar results to that of an Ionisation smoke detector.

Ionisation smoke detectors have been deemed as environmentally unfriendly and have been discontinued in many parts of the world. That gave birth to the multi-sensors i.e. heat and smoke detector in one unit which is fairly expensive. Therefore our manufacturers developed the flat response chamber giving you, the customer the best of both worlds at the cost of a smoke detector.

This illustration shows the effect of this in a more practical form, showing the most common types of smoke in terms of particle sizes and the ability of our Photoelectric smoke chamber to detect the widest range of particles.

It can be seen that the performance of Photoelectric Smoke detector exceeds the combination of both the typical optical and ionisation smoke detectors.
