New Linear Heat Detector from Total Walther Operates Even in Adverse Environmental Conditions
Published on 16 December 2008
Total Walther, part of Tyco International and one of the leading providers of fire protection solutions in Germany, is now offering the ZX SensorLaser™ Plus, a linear heat detection system which detects fires quickly and accurately even in difficult conditions.
Long and complex structures such as traffic and supply tunnels, cable lines and conveyor belts as well as large structures such as production halls, refrigerated warehouses and multi-storey car parks can be monitored for fire using the ZX SensorLaser™ Plus. As the whole system can be maintained using a controller unit, the ZX SensorLaser™ Plus can also be used in areas which are difficult to access, such as raised floors.
Overview of the ZX SensorLaser™ Plus features:
Owing to its resistance to environmental conditions, the ZX SensorLaser™ Plus is particularly well-suited to almost all industrial applications including mining, the chemical industry, refrigerated warehouses, production halls, machines, conveyor belts, tunnels and nuclear power stations. It also functions perfectly in proximity with mobile telephone and radio transmitters, overhead contact lines, transformers and generators.
"An accurate and reliable fire detection system is essential for discovering fires early," explains Roland Y. Billeter, General Manager of Tyco International's fire and security operations in Germany, which comprise Total Walther and ADT. "The ZX SensorLaser™ Plus provides precise information about the location, size and spread of a fire in environmental conditions where other fire detection systems would malfunction."
Total Walther can offer a variety of product options for the ZX SensorLaser™ Plus, enabling the ideal solution to be provided for all structure sizes and requirements.
The latest product option for the system is FLAMEVision™ - a range of infrared array-based flame detectors for industrial and commercial applications. With its special sensor array, FLAMEVision™ provides enhanced flame detection and ensures fewer false alarms. An integrated closed circuit television (CCTV) option also enables the user to respond to incidents quickly. FLAMEVision™ has a detection range of over 50 metres and a field of view of over 90°, monitored by 256 infrared sensors. These sensors enable separate detection of flames and other sources of danger. It is highly sensitive to flames thereby increasing the probability of detecting hydrocarbon fires early over a longer range.
