Aspiration Smoke Detection

Vesda Laser Scanner - VLS

The VESDA VLS is similar to the standard VESDA VLP detector, but also includes a valve mechanism in the inlet manifold and software to control the airflow from the four sectors (pipes). This configuration enables a single VESDA zone to be divided into four separate sectors, for example, distinguishing between separate voids within a room.

The VLS draws air from all sectors in use. If the smoke level reaches the Adaptive Scan Threshold, the VLS quickly scans each pipe to identify which pipe is carrying smoke. If more than one pipe is transporting smoke, the sector with the highest smoke concentration is designated as the First Alarm Sector (FAS).

Once Fast Scan is completed and the FAS identified, the VLS continues to closely monitor all four sectors (pipes) to monitor fire growth and maintain full protection of the area.

There are four alarm levels (Alert, Action, Fire 1 and Fire 2) for each sector (pipe) and the sensitivity for each alarm level can be set to ensure the optimum alarm thresholds are applied for each sector.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vesda Fire Graph

This diagram shows the progression of a fire over time.

Note that the incipient stage of a  fire provides the widest window of opportunity to detect and control the spread. VESDA detectors can be configured to generate multiple alarms within the incipient stage.

They also can be configured to generate an additional alarm (Fire 2) in the advanced stages of a fire. This feature is unique to VESDA and takes  advantage of its wide sensitivity range that enables one detector to monitor the entire progression of a fire.

Vesda Laser Focus

The VLF can be installed and commissioned out-of-the-box without the need for a special interface or software programming tools. 

In operation, the unique Smoke Dial display provides the user with an instant understanding of a smoke event, even from a distance. Should a fault occur, the user simply opens the field service door and activates the Instant Fault Finder feature to determine the specific fault condition. This information can then be passed onto their fire service company, ensuring that service technicians arrive onsite fully prepared.

 

Vesda Fire Trace

Xtralis VESDA VFT-15 detectors are multi-channel microbore air-sampling systems with an alarm sensitivity range from 0.001% to 20% obscuration/m (0.0003% to 6.10% obscuration/ft). These detectors are classified as Very Early Warning Smoke Detectors and can reliably detect fire at an early stage, and low to high concentrations of smoke.

As a multi-channel system, the VFT detector is able to divide a protected space into sampling sectors, enabling the localization of a fire for faster incident response.

The detectors are configurable for a variety of environments, providing ideal fire detection solutions for cabinets, Electronic Data Processing (EDP) rooms, prisons, historic houses, custody suites, museums and art galleries.
