New Gas Extinguishant Control Panel from Advanced Electronics

New Gas Extinguishant Control Panel from Advanced Electronics

Designed to meet EN 12094-1 and EN54 parts 2 & 4, the control panel comes with 3 detection zones, time-stamped log, advanced cause-and-effect, extensive I/O and a range of remote status indicator panels.

The Ex-3001 detects fires in the same manner as a conventional fire alarm panel, but in addition to triggering an alarm, it can also control the release of an extinguishing agent. To avoid false discharges, the Ex-3001 can utilise coincidence detection or ‘double knock’ requiring activation of a fire detector in 2 separate zones before activating a gas release.

In addition to the Ex-3001 Advanced Electronics manufactures a comprehensive range of intelligent control and indicating panels, software and peripherals for fire detection, smoke control and emergency lighting monitoring.

Maintaining your machinery

If your machinery isn’t maintained or checked, it may malfunction. If a malfunction occurs, the equipment may go awry, the equipment may overheat and subsequently cause a fire. Along with your machinery, your fire alarm systems and protection should regularly be maintained and checked, so as to ensure it will still adequately function in the case of a fire outbreak. So make sure your fire alarm system is regularly serviced and maintained!

Manufacturing Fire Safety Emergency Procedures

Fire drills where loud machinery and equipment are being operated, are often difficult to carry out. You will need the right alarm system that can be heard over these. However, drills must be carried at least once a year. All full time and temporary members of staff should be aware of the full evacuation process. If your staff are more experienced in fire procedures, the smoother the evacuation process! Additionally, staff need to understand how to use the fire protection equipment available. To get your staff confident with the use of the fire protection equipment, get them fire warden trained!
