A network of 31 ExGo gas extinguishant panels was selected to protect critical server rooms in more than ten different buildings on the artificial island gateway to the $18.8 billion Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge, including police and fire stations as well as customs and various administrative buildings.
With its proven track record in complex installations, capabilities, and reliability, each ExGo gas extinguishant control panel is connected to at least one remote status indicator unit located at the entrance to the protected area, providing enhanced monitoring and control for the end-user.
A superior gas suppression system will allow interfacing with various third-party systems, such as the fire system, offering tangible benefits such as enhanced protection, cost efficiencies, greater ease of use, and faster response times during an emergency. Gas suppression control modules can be added to the fire system and can then control extinguishing operations as part of the wider cause and effect programming. ExGo has been designed to integrate easily into Advanced’s MxPro or Axis EN fire systems via a simple fire protection interface
However, integrating gas suppression systems can be both delicate and challenging. Coordination and a good understanding of the integration approach are essential to attaining a system that operates smoothly.
ExGo has been designed to integrate easily into Advanced’s MxPro or Axis EN fire systems, as well as a site’s BMS, via a simple fire protection interface, or any third-party fire alarm system via an I/O loop device. Once integrated, the end-user can take advantage of improved capabilities.
By consolidating data from HVAC, energy, security, CCTV, and life safety applications onto one system, the end-user gains facility-wide insight from a single workstation – benefitting from improved reporting, information management, and decision-making.
Operational efficiencies can also be gained through the integration of the gas suppression system with the fire system and BMS, thanks to the reduced requirement for additional staffing and resource, simplifying training and reducing false alarms.
These factors reduce risk, offering more strategic mobile or desktop control, exceptional alarm management, and integrated security solutions. Overall, this provides a more comprehensive view of the status of a site, helping to speed up response time and mitigate risks to people, property, and business.
