Addressable Aspirating Smoke Detection is here!
Discreet Addressable Aspirating Smoke Detection
Vesda VEA addressable ASD offers superior detection where:-
Discreet detection is desired
Point detectors are difficult to reach
Access to the protected area is restricted
Disruption of occupants is undesirable
Maintenance costs are high
False alarms are extremely costly or unacceptable
VESDA-E VEA introduces a new approach for addressable smoke detection. The VEA provides pinpoint aspirating addressability by using a network of microbore tubes connected to sample points located within the protected area.
A single VEA detector supports 40 addressable sampling points which are expandable up to 120 using the Expansion StaX add-on module, all managed from a central location.
The fully supervised microbore tubes and sampling points ensure total system availability with each sampling point being individually monitored.
Centralised test and maintenance from a readily accessible detector location can reduce service time by up to 90%; negating the need to gain access and visit each point individually. The unique design of the VEA sampling points allows full monitoring of the sampling tube by the VEA. It knows when a tube is cut, blocked, restricted or when a sampling point is removed. Service visits to each sampling point are no longer required.
VEA remote maintenance is ideally suited in applications where interruption free business operation and restricted access are of paramount importance. Operating theatres, hotel rooms, holding cells and luxury apartments are some of the environments that benefit from discreet detection where access is limited.
Rapid, simple, installation is possible with Ventec Systems supplying VEA microbore tube, connectors, reducers and other ancillary equipment in addition to the VEA detectors and power supplies. VEA detectors are Aspire free and function out of the box once installed to their specific design parameters.
