Honeywell, the world leader in advanced smoke and fire detection technologies, on June 15, announced the next generation of Xtralis VESDA aspirating smoke detectors that re-define the ASD technology and will set a new benchmark in the industry for reliable very early warning smoke detection.
Honeywell’s Xtralis VESDA-E VEP offers improved detection performance – 1.5 times greater sensitivity than VESDA VLP, up to 6 times better dust rejection to minimize nuisance alarms, saving building owners significant potential costs from fire department calls. The technology offers higher detection stability over a wider range of environments and improved consistency through its Flair Detection Technology. Its new unique particle characterization capability provides analytics for targeted detection and efficient and effective response.
VESDA-E VEP enhances the user experience with out-of–the-box operation utilizing auto configuration to aid commissioning, an intuitive 3.5” LCD touch screen display for simplified status investigation and wireless remote review with the iVESDA app for proactive maintenance. New standard features including built-in Ethernet and WiFi provide ease of connectivity with commonly used handheld devices and the PC-based Xtralis VSM monitoring package.
The series occupies the same mounting footprint, pipe, conduit and electrical connector positioning as VESDA VLP, providing a virtually seamless retrofit option. The new system enables longer pipe runs for convenient detector mounting, helping to reduce maintenance costs. Detector coverage is extended by up to 20% in high-ceiling environments, which also helps reduce costs for customers. VESDA-E VEP is also compatible with existing VESDAnet installations, allowing monitoring of both VESDA-E and legacy detectors via the latest iVESDA application.
Xtralis VESDA-E VEP extends the VESDA-E product family that revolutionized the smoke detection industry with its unique ASD offering into standard detection applications.
