Fike High-Level Interface (HLI)

Intelligently links Xtralis VESDA-E devices connected to the VESDAnet with Fike fire control panels.

Fike HLI transmits VESDA devices’ real-time data, including current airflow status, smoke level status, fault status and more to the control panel where it is visually displayed. The control system will then respond to events based on system configuration.

How does air sampling work?

Air Drawn

VESDA is an active system, continuously drawing air via a fan through multiple sampling holes along a network of pipes and into a highly sensitive detector.

Dust Removal

Prior to entering the chamber, the air sample passes by a flow sensor through the aspirator and a dual-stage filter, which removes dust and dirt from the air.

Smoke Particles Examined

The sample proceeds into the chamber where even low levels of smoke particles will cause a laser light to scatter, which is instantly detected by the light receiver.

Alarms Activate

The presence of smoke will then be notified by the fire control panel by activating horns and strobes or pre-programmed voice messaging to either evacuate the facility or instruct personnel to extinguish the fire.

Suppression Systems Activate

If applicable, a releasing panel will activate relays to dispense pre-action sprinkler systems or special hazard suppression onto the protected space.

What are the benefits of air sampling versus conventional smoke detectors?

Both types of conventional smoke detectors (photoelectric and ionization) require smoke to reach the ceiling before activating. For many environments, these smoke detectors provide an early enough warning to locate portable fire extinguishers, notify fire fighters and/or evacuate the building, depending on the severity of the fire.

However, these types of smoke detectors are not ideal for environments with mission critical assets when very early warning detection is critical. In environments such as data centers where cooling and air flow is constant, any smoke from a fire could be diluted and not reach a smoke detector early enough to prevent damage.

For these types of applications, air sampling detection systems are required because of their ability to detect even the smallest traces of smoke in the environment.

Another reason air sampling devices may be chosen is because unlike smoke detectors they do not interfere with electromagnetic waves and other systems found in hospitals, MRI rooms and anechoic chambers. The air sampling unit is located outside of these rooms, and the non-interfering pipe network is routed through the protected space.

Finally, air sampling may help reduce maintenance costs. For example, in atriums, conference centers, expos and other high-ceiling buildings, providing periodic maintenance to smoke detectors and changing their batteries will likely require the use of a scissor lift and hours of labor. Conversely, an air sampling unit is easily accessible.

How do gas detectors work?

Harmful Gas Detected

A gas detector identifies elevated levels of gas for which the detector is calibrated and relays the information to the fire panel.

Alarm Activates

The fire control panel goes into alarm, activating horns and strobes or pre-programmed voice messaging to alert occupants to evacuate a specific area or the entire building.

Building Relays Activate

Depending on the environment and the severity of the situation, the fire panel may initiate building functions such as activating ventilation systems.
