ProSeries - Aspirating Fire Detection

 Return to:  Home Page


What is Air Sampling Fire Detection?


Air Sampling, also know as aspirating, fire detection utilizes an aspirator, and a supervised sample pipe network to return air samples from an environment that is being protected, back to a detection unit for analysis.  The air sample is drawn into the pipe network through either holes drilled in the pipe, a capillary or extended drop from the pipe, or sample heads which can be either adjustable or non-adjustable.  Each of these methods use flow calculations to determine sample hole sizes, pressure drops and acceptable pipe lengths to be sure the system meets NFPA guidelines.  Below are details for each of these methods


Why ProSeries?

The new advanced CCD (Cloud Chamber Detection) technology from Protec combines the benefits of spot, laser, and cloud chamber detection into a single detector. CCD provides unparalleled technology which only detects combustion making it immune to false alarms from dirt, dust, temperature and humidity which plague other early warning spot and aspirating smoke detectors. The introduction of CCD technology now allows for an aspirating system to be ultra sensitive while eliminating the nuisance alarms associated with other detection technologies.

Detects in All Four Stages of Fire

Before Smoke

No False Alarms

*Obscuration (obs/ft) - Percentage of light decrease per foot
 due to smoke, dirt, dust or pollutants in an environment. CCD
 technology only senses combustion and can detect from zero
 to 100% obs/ft. while remaining immune to false alarms.



Widest Range of Detectors to Fit Your Specific Needs

No one detector can meet the needs of every application.  Determining the proper detector for your application is critical since no two applications are alike.  With three aspirating smoke detector types, multiple zones, multifunction LCD display and multiple networking options, ProSeries offers a detector right for your application.
