Vesda Aspirating Smoke Detection Systems

Very Early Warning Smoke Detection

Protectowire Linear Heat Detection Systems distributed by Koetter Fire Protection - Dallas, Texas

All fires have four stages: Incipient (pre-combustion), Visible Smoke, Flaming Fire, and Intense Heat. The incipient stage of smoldering fires provides the widest window of opportunity to detect and control the spread of fire. VESDA smoke detectors can be configured to generate multiple alarms within this window, to provide the time needed to help minimize or prevent fire loss.

Vesda Applications

  • Where downtime must be minimized
    Computer Rooms, Telecommunications, Hospitals, Clean Rooms ... and more
  • Where smoke is difficult to detect
    Warehouses, Atria, Hangars,Cold Storage, Function Rooms, Indoor Stadiums ... and more
  • Where extreme environmental characteristics have posed a problem for conventional smoke detection systems
    Power Stations, Mines, Public Transport, Automotive, Production, Mills, Manufacturing, Operations
  • Where appearance is important
    Modern Offices, Heritage Buildings, Cathedrals, Museums, Archives, Art Galleries
  • When the trend towards performance-based fire safety systems are requested
    VESDA's modularity and flexibility supports designers in their quest to find the ideal design solution without compromising fire safety.

VESDA Products

The VESDA product line includes smoke Detectors, Programmers, Displays, Remote Devices, Systems Management Software, Design Software, Power Supplies, Pipe and Fittings, and a complete assembly of support material.


VESDA LaserPLUS

VESDA LaserPLUS is the main product of the VESDA range. It's modular design allows multiple product configurations to more closely meet customer requirements.

Product Configurations
All smoke detectors come with a head termination card (HTC) with 7 configurable relays, a configurable General Purpose Input (GPI) and VESDAnet socket. Just some of the configurations possible:

  • VLP-000, a standard LaserPLUS blank smoke detector
  • VLP-400, a LaserPLUS smoke detector with Fire and OK LEDs
  • VLP-002, a LaserPLUS smoke detector with Display module
  • VLP-012, a LaserPLUS smoke detector with a Programmer and Display module

VESDA LaserSCANNER™

Similar to VESDA LaserPLUS, however it allows the system to distinguish and identify the pipe carrying smoke, while sampling multiple sectors. The detection of smoke results in the system locating the sector in Alert. The VESDA LaserSCANNER detector will continue to sample from all sectors to monitor the fire growth and maintain full protection.

Specific display modules are available for the VESDA LaserSCANNER configuration. LaserSCANNER's modular design allows multiple product configurations to more closely meet customer requirements.

Product Configurations
All smoke detectors come with a head termination card (HTC) with either 7 or 12 configurable relays, a configurable General Purpose Input (GPI) and VESDAnet socket. Some of the configurations possible:

  • VLS-300, a standard blank LaserSCANNER detector (12 Relays)
  • VLS-700, a LaserSCANNER smoke detector with Fire and OK LEDs (12 Relays)
  • VLS-304, a LaserSCANNER detector with a LaserSCANNER Display module (12 Relays)
  • VLS-314, a LaserSCANNER detector with a Programmer and LaserSCANNER Display module (12 Relays)

VESDA LaserCOMPACT™

The newest product in the VESDA product range! Specifically designed for smaller areas, LaserCOMPACT offers a simple and cost effective solution to protect single environments, and small areas, including critical process tools (equipment).

The LaserCOMPACT supports 5 LEDs: Fire, Pre-Alarm/Alert, Fault, OK, Reset/Isolate. It has 3 relays on the termination card plus VESDAnet compatibility (VLC-505 version only). Possible Configurations: VLC-500 (RO), Relays interfacing only and VLC-505 (VN), Relays and VESDAnet interfacing.   


The System Relay Module (SRM)

A cost effective and flexible alternative for system design, a single System Relay Module can report any fault or alarm condition that occurs on the VESDAnet loop, irrespective of its zone. This provides the end user with a variety of secondary reporting options that make early warning more cost effective at locations remote from the Fire Alarm Control Panel (FACP).

Its purpose is to provide the earliest possible warning of an alarm or fault condition of any device on the VESDAnet loop to initiate investigation. For example, where site monitoring is conducted from either a remote gatehouse or central control room the SRM can be installed to drive a warning alarm or sounder without the need for multiple remote displays and relays.

Accessories

  • VESDA Pipe & Fittings
  • Power Supplies & Batteries
  • Sub Rack Enclosures

VESDA System Management (VSM) Software

An intelligent, Windows™ based graphics communication software; a monitoring and administration tool that supports custom floor plans. VSM allows the user to operate, maintain, program and commission all the VESDA smoke detectors on a single VESDAnet. Real time and historic events for a single detector, an area, or the entire facility can be collected, processed, and presented in either report or graphical format.
