System Sensor’s new FAAST Fire Alarm Aspiration Sensing Technology® provides very early warning of smoke for high-value and critical facilities, as well as within challenging applications. Officials claim the FAAST detector’s newly added ability to directly integrate with fire alarm systems enables it to supply more detailed alarm, fault, and trouble information to the Fire Alarm Control Panel, thereby simplifying system monitoring, maintenance, and overall design.
According to the company, the new intelligent FAAST evolves beyond the common scenarios of monitoring one or more standalone aspiration systems, or the use of intricate and costly equipment to create high level interfaces between the aspirating smoke detection system and the fire alarm system. FAAST requires no additional hardware, software, or special wire, and integrates to many fire alarm systems like other addressable detectors, making installation straightforward.
