Cybersecurity and physical security systems: how to implement best practices

Honeywell announces launch of next generation aspirating smoke detectors 

Multinational producer of advanced smoke and fire detection technologies Honeywell is launching its next generation of Xtralis VESDA aspirating smoke detectors for early warning detection.

The company’s new version of Xtralis VESDA-E VEP has one and a half times more sensitivity than VESDA VLP, and up to six times better dust rejection in order to reduce instances of nuisance alarms, to save building owners on potential costs from fire department calls.

The technology also provides higher detection stability over a wider range of environments and improved consistency through its Flair Detection Technology, a new unique particle characterisation capability. It provides analytics for targeted detection and efficient and effective response.

VESDA-E VEP is simple to configure and commission and includes a 3.5 inch LCD touch screen display and wireless remote review with the iVESDA app for maintenance.

New standard features include built-in Ethernet and Wi-Fi to ensure easy connectivity with handheld devices as well as the PC-based Xtralis video software management monitoring package.

The new system enables longer pipe runs and detector coverage is extended by up to 20% in high-ceiling rooms and spaces.

Honeywell and Xtralis are exhibiting at FIREX International, 20-22 June 2017, London ExCeL. Visit stands D250 and D300 to see their latest life safety systems. Get your free badge now.
