Pyrosense3 – industrial fire suppression control panel

May 2013 IS & Ex

Pyrosense3 is a new generation industrial extinguishing panel, EMI hardened for immunity to the electrical noise typically found in industrial locations. The simple, programmable configuration options and easy to install construction make the panel the ideal choice for small to medium sized systems using all extinguishing agents.

With two detection zones as standard on a single pair of wires, the Pyrosense extinguishant release can be configured to activate from any combination of detection zone inputs to allow (among other combinations) activation on double knock detection such as would be required for detection using twin circuit digital linear heat cable in cable void applications. The configuration options allow the functionality of the system to be extensively modified to suit difficult site conditions.

The panel contains large dual LED indicators and integral dip switch control to enable easy configuration. The unit also features high current output together with a second output that can be configured as an extinguishing release or a monitored sounder circuit.

All circuits are fully supervised to ensure reliable operation and the panel contains an integral battery charger to provide standby in the event of mains power failure.

Designed and manufactured to the highest standards in an ISO9001 quality controlled environment, the Pyrosense3 extinguishing panel offers outstanding value and performance for all small to medium industrial fixed fire fighting installations.
