Patol brings new option for Securiton ASD system to market at FIREX International

Patol introduced a new option for the Securiton aspirating smoke detection (ASD) system at FIREX International, with the incorporation of gas detection technology to further extend the capabilities of the system in protecting a wider range of environments.

Patol has worked with worldwide supplier of gas detection solutions GfG to come up with the new solution. By attaching the flexible wall-mounted gas monitor which is housed in a Perspex enclosure to the pipework of the aspirating system, Patol can now offer integrated gas detection.

The pump from the aspirating smoke detection chamber draws the air through the pipework. It then passes through the gas monitor before entering the ASD chamber.

The monitor checks for the presence of toxic or flammable gases such as Carbon Monoxide, Oxygen or Hydrogen in a single intelligent unit combining both transmitter and controller. It features pluggable smart sensors and a large LCD display for ease of reading, with the alarm triggered if the gas concentration reaches a pre-set threshold. It features a two-stage alarm, with the alarm LED simultaneously activating the alarm relay of the ASD system.

Simplicity of operation is at the heart of the design of the Securiton ASD system and this is also carried through into the new gas detector. The menu-assisted configuration and calibration is accessed from just three keys, with an AutoCal feature which automatically adjusts the measurement signal of the test gas during calibration. It has a large display which continuously provides information relating to the gas concentration levels and the unit’s operational status.

Available in the UK through Patol, the Securiton ASD range is approved to EN 54-20 Class A, B and C and offers scalable high sensitivity smoke detection for small, single premises through to much larger facilities.
