Previdia by Inim: integration with vast potential Previdia

The Previdia is an Inim Electronics analogue-addressable fire detection control panel which thanks to its highly versatile modular design can be networked with ease to create large-scale automatic fire detection and alarm systems for complex installations in large building structures.

In response to the ever growing demand for integrated security-system management particularly in large-scale building structures Inim came forward with the vast potential of the Previdia.
The Previdia fire-detection system, with its powerful and versatile design, offers a completely new solution that stems from its capability to connect directly to a range of systems external to the fire-detection installation such as EVAC voice systems and Harper emergency lights and warning signs.
EVAC voice evacuation systems consist of one or more control units and a series of loudspeaker lines.

These systems constitute an evacuation-warning system for building occupants and are a highly efficient way of providing detailed information, something that sounders alone cannot do. Integration between the Previdia and these systems allows the activation of specifically targeted voice messages in the different areas involved in an evacuation.
The Previdia is capable of managing Inim Electronics Harper Emergency Lamps and signs directly on its Loops.

The electrical power supply may fail at any time, for instance in the event of a fire or network overload. In such situations emergency lamps provide essential lighting to ensure that building occupants can leave the premises in total safety.
Integration of emergency lighting and fire control systems greatly increases their performance and functionality: from selective activation of escape-route directions to guided evacuation based on the location of the danger.

APOLLO showcases UL detectors at Intersec

Shipping an American cooker to the UK and finding the closest comparison to a US burger, are just some of the lengths Apollo Fire Detectors has gone to in the development of its new range of Soteria UL268 7th edition detectors, which will be showcased at Intersec in January 2020.

Exhibiting in Hall 4 on stand F10, Apollo Fire Detectors will showcase the new range of Soteria UL smoke, heat and multi-criteria detectors at Intersec 2020. Apollo has invested heavily in research and development ahead of the new UL standard that is due to come into force next year. The new UL standard represents a major step change for the fire industry.

The new Soteria UL range replaces the Apollo Discovery UL range and is compatible with Discovery and CoreProtocol®. It comes with a built-in isolator to assist with the detection and correction of faults in fire detection systems. Apollo also have variants that are compatible with XP95A protocol.

Mohammed Al Zaben, Head of Sales – Middle East & North Africa at Apollo Fire Detectors, said: “Focused R&D has culminated in a UL268 7th edition offering that is compatible with our existing installation base, which minimises the impact of the new standard on our customers. The Apollo solution has placed our customers front and centre in the process, as the new detectors are able to be installed onto an existing system without the need to update the fire alarm control panel.

“We are committed to developing these new products ahead of the deadline and to supporting our customers throughout the transition process. Intersec will provide the perfect opportunity to discuss the new standard with us and its implications for the industry.”

Storage Hazards Require Protection

The manufacture and storage of flammable and combustible liquids presents an ever present and dangerous risk of spill or fire. With hundreds if not thousands of pure and blended materials classified as flammable or combustible liquids, NFPA 30 Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code groups these liquids into six classification categories based on a materials flashpoint. Additionally, other physical properties of the ignitable liquid must be considered as part of any risk assessment, these include reactivity and heat release rates.

Types and sizes of packaging containers are based on end-use requirements and are produced from a variety of materials ranging from steel, plastic and composites to fiberboard and glass. Storage of these materials typically falls under one of three categories: manufacturing facilities, distribution/warehouse centers and commercial retail outlets. The quantity of material in each of these property settings can vary from millions of gallons down to a few hundred of gallons.

Companies that produce or store flammable and combustible liquids must comply with national, state and local fire codes, in addition to applicable insurance underwriting requirements. Documents that provide guidance on foam-water systems for this risk include: NFPA 11; NFPA 16; NFPA 30 and FM Global Property Loss Prevention Datasheets (7-29, 4-12).

While final general requirements for the protection of manufacturing and storage of ignitable liquids depend on many variables the minimum design criteria for foam-water sprinklers identified in these documents are based on application rate, hazard area, duration time and foam concentrate type.

SOLBERG® balanced pressure proportioning systems meet today’s ever-changing environments associated with protecting the manufacture and storage of ignitable liquids. SOLBERG C6 based ARCTIC™ AFFF, AR-AFFF foam and RE-HEALING™ Fluorine-free foam concentrates are uniquely designed and certified for use in foam-water systems providing maximum fire control, extinguishment, and burn-back resistance.
