FAAST aspirating smoke detectors use an integrated fan and a pipe network to draw air from a protected space into the detection chamber. This pipe network allows smoke detection in hard-to-reach areas and challenging environments – including areas with temperature extremes, dust, or high humidity – and allows for ease of testing and maintenance.
Sampling ports located along the pipelines reflect (as a minimum) the location of the point detectors. AS 1603.1 codes define maximum hole coverage and sensitivities. The pipes can also be installed in special applications where sampling ports can be positioned freely. However, any such configuration must be verified by the PipeIQ configuration software.
Special applications may include confined spaces protection (e.g. floor or ceiling voids), cabinets or 19 rack protection (e.g. with capillaries).
