With VESDA ECO, Xtralis has extended its market-leading VESDA very early warning aspirating smoke detection system to include reliable gas detection and environmental monitoring. Invisible hazards can originate from the release of toxic gases, oxygen deficiency, or the presence of combustible gases/vapors. As with fire detection, proactive gas detection enables countermeasures to be taken to protect personnel and property from such unseen dangers.
VESDA ECO by Xtralis combines aspirating smoke detection with gas detection and environmental monitoring. It uses an existing VESDA pipe network to actively sample air for the presence of smoke as well as hazardous/combustible gases. Integration with other building systems (FACP, PLC, HVAC and BMS) delivers real-time situational awareness and intelligent emergency response, including the activation of demand-controlled ventilation to save energy and control costs.
