Aspirating Smoke Detection with Gas Monitoring the existing ASD pipe to detect smoke and gases variety of gas detection options to install and maintain the leader and pioneer in early re detection solutions Invisible Dangers fire can have catastrophic consequences and cost millions of dollars in business disruption and result in tragic loss of lives and assets The key to fire protection is the mitigation of risk through early warning detecting a fire before it escalates an effective response can be staged same principle applies to gas detection This invisible hazard can originate from the release of toxic oxygen deficiency or the presence of combustible gases and vapors When detected at an early countermeasures can be initiated to protect personnel and property with Gas Detection and Environmental Monitoring the world leading manufacturer of aspirating smoke detection ASD solutions Xtralis is pleased to VESDA ECO the industry first system to combine ASD with gas detection and environmental VESDA ECO Leverages existing VESDA ASD pipe networks to cost effectively detect both smoke and gas in addition providing environmental monitoring Provides detection for multiple gases through simple expansion without major construction or retrofitting Conditions the air to remove dirt particulates moisture poisonous agents and cross interference gases Suitable for harsh environments Provides non intrusive detection for aesthetics or to prevent vandalism Enables centralized monitoring and communication with building systems for real time awareness Easily integrates with FACP PLCs HVAC BMS Fire and Gas Solution Smoke System Detector to ASD pipe of ASD Combined with Gas Detection Environmental Monitoring 24 7 protection with active air sampling for the earliest warning of smoke and reliable gas detection Simplified gas detection with lower installation costs through the use of the existing VESDA ASD pipe Multiple gas sampling points for better area coverage Full integration with Xtralis VSC and VSM4 software simplifies configuration and management Direct interface to FACP HVAC and BMS using relays 4 20 mA or Modbus outputs Reliable detection even in harsh environments for Cost effective Gas Monitoring Applications many facilities unseen dangers exist from gases and other hazardous substances that can cause damage and loss of life VESDA ECO was developed to provide cost effective gas detection and monitoring in numerous applications and environments and Battery charging Rooms gas is given off during battery charging Explosions can due to inadequate ventilation and or the absence of fireproof hydrogen is detected VESDA ECO can automatically the ventilation system to prevent the build up of explosive of hydrogen gas This on demand ventilation approach electrical energy consumption by ventilating only when dangerous gases are present instead of continuously the space If hydrogen levels continue to increase an can be automatically sent to notify staff of a potential system so that measures can be taken to prevent a disaster Utility Tunnels tunnels are the life blood of industry supplying critical power data for operations and service continuity A fire or gas leak in areas can lead to catastrophic consequences and cost of dollars in disruptions and lost business conventional smoke and gas detectors that become easily due to airborne dust VESDA ECO overcomes harsh conditions to provide reliable detection of methane and carbon monoxide CO or other hazardous gases Centers centers like car parks depots road tunnels and vehicle maintenance workshops are normally dusty and to potentially dangerous levels of carbon monoxide CO nitrogen dioxide NO2 exhaust from vehicles ASD has been used reliably in this harsh environment to early warning smoke detection By adding VESDA ECO to existing VESDA ASD pipe network high concentrations of CO be detected locally through area or zone detection as to a fixed CO detector that provides only point combined with ASD substantial cost savings for car park can be achieved due to lower installation and operating while providing a safe and healthy environment more Utility and boiler rooms Public spaces applications are available through engineering support Please contact an Xtralis office for more Warehouses Manufacturing facilities and Range

Dioxide SO2 0 10 ppm Methane CH4 0 100 LEL VESDA ECO Works ECO uses the existing VESDA air sampling network to actively monitor for gas leaks and ensure air quality in occupied areas reliably detects unseen hazards by conditioning filtering the air to remove moisture dirt and other that can cause traditional point gas systems to false alarm or become The VESDA ECO detector is configured Xtralis VSC configuration software The detector can be monitored using Xtralis VSM4 monitoring Both VSC and VSM can be used to download from the on board memory card for data analysis trending of historical data with other building systems including fire alarm control panels FACPs programmable logic PLCs heating ventilation and air conditioning HVAC systems and building management systems also is possible for real time situational awareness and intelligent emergency response For example ECO can be used in a transportation hub to monitor carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide levels variable speed fans as part of a demand controlled ventilation system which controls costs and saves Xtralis is a leading global provider of powerful early warning fire detection and security solutions that prevent by giving users time to respond before life critical infrastructure or business continuity is compromised protect more than 40,000 customer sites in 100 countries including billions in assets
