1. Linear Detection Wire

With multiple temperature ratings in a single hazard area, the linear detection wire accommodates a variety of cooking equipment. It helps minimize the potential for grease buildup and simplifies maintenance.

Available temperature ratings
155°F / 68°C
280°F / 137°C
356°F / 180°C
500°F / 260°C


2. Controller

The RED controller features inputs and outputs used to protect up to two hazard areas and activates the release outputs. It also monitors all the circuits and can connect two additional, optional relay modules.

3. Regulated PAD Release (RED Automan)

The regulated PAD release assembly contains the regulated release, expellant gas hose for agent tank hookup and enclosure knockouts to facilitate installing actuation piping, expellant piping, release wiring and additional equipment.

4. Display Module

The display module is the interface that confirms the system is ready, monitors up to 16 zones, configures the system and identifies trouble or alarm conditions. It’s also where users can silence alarms, reset systems and engage the cleaning mode.
The module is password protected and features two access levels: one for the owner and another for the Authorized ANSUL® RED Distributor.
