Compact single-pipe aspirating detection system

Saturday, March 27th, 2010

A new compact aspirating detection system has been launched by Hochiki.FireLink NanoFirelink Nano is a single-pipe system with a sampling pipe length for still air of 50m, with either two, six or ten sampling holes, depending on the fire risk. It uses what is termed ‘perceptive artificial intelligence’ which helps ensure that it operates constantly at optimum sensitivity for the particular protected environment. The high degree of sensitivity is achieved by using what Hochiki calls ‘laser-based forward light scattering’ technology.

Remote monitoring of the system at a fire detection and alarm panel, or on a building management system control panel, is made possible by the inclusion of pre-alarm, fire and fault relays, and RS485 communication is built-in for easy networking and remote communication. A Hochiki Enhanced System Protocol compatible APIC – Addressable Protocol Interface Card – is available for addressable systems.

The Nano measures just 185mm wide by 225mm high by 105mm deep, and can be interfaced onto an ESP analogue addressable loop using a Hochiki CHQ-DIM dual input module.
