Siemens at the Fire Safety Event

Siemens Smart Infrastructure will be displaying its latest fire detection and alarm solutions at Stand 5/B125 during the upcoming Fire Safety Event.

The company has recently launched an updated version of their web-based SaaS (Software as a Service) fire app, “Fire Manager”, which offers service providers and fire safety managers the capability to view all fire safety sites in one place.

The app provides an overview of the status of buildings and allows for easy monitoring.

The release of “Fire Manager” is part of the ongoing development of Siemens Building X, a digital platform that supports customers in digitalizing, managing, and optimizing their building operations, including energy, HVAC, security, and safety.

With remote monitoring and intervention features, real-time notification, and efficient and predictive maintenance capabilities, “Fire Manager” offers a range of benefits, including a status overview of a site/sites, both live and historical events, customisable notification via SMS or email, and data that assists with maintenance and planning.

It also provides the potential for disturbance-free testing (DFT), which allows detectors to be tested automatically, with the results recorded in the portal.

Siemens has also introduced ASD+, a new generation of aspirating smoke detection which provides further benefits. The device features two new detectors, FDA261 and FDA262, specifically designed to provide solutions for larger and more complex projects.

A single device can cover an impressive area of up to 6,700 m2 – currently the largest coverage area available on the market. With a single ASD+ detector, up to 2,000 m2 of detection coverage is feasible even for Class A installations with the highest sensitivity requirements.

The modular design of ASD+ enables easy replacement of both the detection chamber and the aspirator without the need to exchange the entire detector unit, which extends the product’s lifetime and reduces its environmental footprint.

The new ASD+ app ensures fast and easy digital commissioning in a process that is highly automated and intuitive through a QR-code-based approach, reducing commissioning costs by up to 20%.

The detection performance of the previous detectors has been enhanced in ASD+ through optics designed for high sensitivity, with optimisation to perform in harsh dirty environments through improved signal processing that differentiates between smoke and dust.

Siemens has also developed a native iOS and Android app, “Fire Connect”, which enables service providers to transmit notifications of the fire system status to their customers.
