Honeywell, the world leader in advanced smoke and fire detection technologies, today 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 nuiscance 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.
