Aspirating Smoke Detection

FAAST XS Stand Alone Aspirating Smoke Detector

Product Overview

The FAAST XS Conventional Aspirating Smoke Detector (7100X) combines Dual Vision (blue LED and infrared laser) optical smoke detection with advanced detection algorithms and a wide-area sampling system.

The detector incorporates an air sampling system that continuously draws air from the controlled environment into the detector chamber through a sampling pipe. The three-stage filtering and particle rejection system ensures high sensitivity to smoke with excellent immunity to nuisance particles. The particle separator ensures that heavy particles bypass the detection chamber, extending filter life and preventing detection chamber contamination. An easily replaceable filter protects the chamber from other smaller particles. The shape of the detection chamber is also designed to resist the build-up of nuisance particles. The Dual Vision sensing system employs advanced software to combine the signals from two separate light sensors for maximum smoke sensitivity while rejecting signals from nuisance particles. FAAST 7100X can accurately detect incipient fire conditions before a fire actually starts.

An installed device can protect up to 600 m² in standard coverage applications. It can be monitored through its integral display, from a computer connected to the device, or remotely through a web browser. When suitably connected, FAAST 7100X can send out status updates by email. Users are guided through pipe layout design and detector configuration by the FAAST PipeIQ®* design, configuration and monitoring software.

Features

  • Draws air through a network of sampling pipes
  • High sensitivity for extremely early smoke detection
  • Three alarm levels: Alert, Fire 1 and Fire 2
  • Two operating modes (Day / Night / Weekend and Acclimate™) for application flexibility
  • Day / Night / Weekend mode enables pre-set thresholds based on routine changes in the environment’s usage
  • In Acclimate™ mode the detector automatically adjusts thresholds to current environmental conditions
  • Dual flow detection including ultrasonic and electronic sensing for pipe and chamber airflow measurement
  • Configurable 3-speed fan allows maximum coverage area or minimum current consumption
  • Easy configuration via USB or Ethernet
  • Ethernet interface enables remote monitoring, configuration, web server and e-mail
  • LCD display provides interactive access to detailed information and user control functions
  • Configurable air flow fault thresholds and verification period
  • Unique air flow pendulum graph verifies pipe network functionality
  • Particulate graph displays subtle environmental changes for early problem indications
