Honeywell, the world leader in advanced smoke and fire detection technologies has come up with the next generation of Xtralis VESDA® aspirating smoke detectors that re-define the ASD technology.
Honeywell’s Xtralis VESDA-E VEP offers improved detection performance –1.5 times greater sensitivity than VESDA VLP, up to six times better dust rejection to minimize nuisance alarms, saving building owners significant potential costs from fire department calls.
The technology offers higher detection stability over a wider range of environments and improved consistency through its Flair Detection Technology. Its new unique particle characterization capability provides analytics for targeted detection and efficient and effective response.
The series occupies the same mounting footprint, pipe, conduit and electrical connector positioning as VESDA VLP, providing a virtually seamless retrofit option. The new system enables longer pipe runs for convenient detector mounting, helping to reduce maintenance costs.
Smoke detector coverage is extended by up to 20% in high-ceiling environments, which also helps reduce costs for customers. VESDA-E VEP is also compatible with existing VESDAnet installations, allowing monitoring of both VESDA-E and legacy detectors via the latest iVESDA application.
