VESDA-E VEA Case Study – Healthcare
VESDA-E Aspirating smoke detection is used in applications protecting personnel, irreplaceable assets and mission critical infrastructure. With supervised detection and centralized testing and maintenance, aspirating smoke detection provides critical advantages where smoke is difficult to detect, security and business continuity is paramount and environments are challenging.
- VESDA is the industry standard. It provides unparalleled sensitivity, flexibility, reliability, programmability, and expandability in early smoke detection.
- Early Detection – Up to 15 times higher sensitivity and support from more sampling holes
Reduce maintenance, testing and inspection times; total supervision end-to-end
NOTIFIER offers the broadest range of highly sensitive VESDA and VESDA-E aspirating smoke detection solutions. These solutions provide the benefits of highly sensitive very early warning smoke detection with intelligent fire panel integration options with NOTIFIER. The point addressability option provides a fully supervised solution for mainstream applications.
VESDA-E Aspirating Smoke Detection Features and Benefits
- Very early smoke detection to mitigate risk of catastrophic loss and business disruption
- Absolute calibration for superior smoke detector performance without compromise
- Reliable, continuous and highly sensitive operation where traditional smoke detection fails
- Full integrity monitoring of all critical smoke detector functions to ensure the detector is able to detect smoke, unlike conventional smoke detectors
- Reliability in harsh and dirty environments
- Notification of exact location of fire incident with point addressability option
- Seamless integration with NOTIFIER fire alarm control panels
VESDA In A Healthcare Environment
VESDA-E VEA transforms approach to smoke detection while promising less disruption to patents:
Problem: Traditional smoke detectors in each room are connected to a central fire alarm panel by low voltage electrical wiring. When smoke accumulates in the chamber, the alarm sounds, but only the zone is identified.
Solution: The VESDA-E VEA central unit can pinpoint the location of the alarm. It can also differentiate a fire from a patient smoking to reduce false alarms. Also, VEA does not require the contractor to enter each room. Instead, servicing and testing can be performed at the central unit and only takes a few seconds per sample point.
“…if a smoke detector goes off in room 401, it tells you there is an issue in room 401. I don’t have to [check] every one until I finally come across it.” – Customer testimonial
VESDA-E Aspirating Smoke Detection – How it Works
Air is continually drawn from the protected area through the air sampling pipe network and into the detector by a high efficiency aspirator. The air sampling pipe network can contain up to four pipes.
The air from each sampling pipe passes through a flow sensor and then a sample of the air is drawn into the Flair detection chamber via the sampling module, after first passing through the filter.
An additional filter provides clean air to protect the optical surfaces inside the detection chamber from contamination.
The Flair™ detection chamber uses the equivalent of 330,000 sensors and sophisticated algorithms for smoke detection and particle type characterization. If the detected smoke is higher than the set alarm thresholds it is reported as an Alert, Action, Fire1 or Fire2 alarm condition. Air is exhausted from the detector and may be vented back into the protected zone. Alarms can be signaled via Relays and VESDAnet. Ethernet and WiFi can be used for configuration and secondary monitoring, and a USB interface is provided for initial setup. A series of LEDs display Alarm, Trouble, Disable and detector power on status. A button allows the user to Reset or Disable the detector. In addition, an optional 3.5” LCD display shows the detector status, including smoke level and a smoke level bar graph, alarm thresholds, trouble status, % airflow level, normalization status and filter life used.
