Siemens Building Technologies - New ASD System from Siemens Cerberus PRO Offers Early Fire Detection

Fire Detection - Smoke Detectors - Evacuation Systems - Fire Safety

Siemens Smoke Detector

Aspirating smoke detection (ASD) offers early fire detection for a wide range of applications. Air samples from the areas requiring protection are continuously drawn via pipes with sampling holes and are evaluated in a detector chamber for the presence of smoke.

The new aspirating smoke detectors FDA221 and FDA241 from Siemens use two wavelengths to differentiate between smoke and deceptive phenomena. This enables increased detection reliability even in the most demanding environments. In addition, the FDA221 and FDA241 can be directly integrated into a Cerberus™ PRO fire detection system from Siemens helping to reduce installation costs.

The new detectors are particularly suitable for application areas where environmentally challenging conditions occur or where high detection sensitivity is needed. This would include areas such as lobbies, warehouses, industrial production areas, data centers or clean rooms. The patented chamber inside the detectors was specially designed to keep dust ingress to an absolute minimum. The benefits include an extended product lifespan and less maintenance even if the detectors are installed in dusty and dirty environments.
