CONTROL PANELS FOR AUTOMATIC FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEMS
Control panels are crucial to an effective heavy equipment fire suppression system. When the system detects a fire or other operational problem, a signal is sent to the control panel to alert the cab driver to act. The panel may alert the operator with flashing LED lights, an audible alarm, and, on certain models, an intuitive LCD screen. This constant system monitoring by the control panel protects the machine operator, allows for quick discharge to suppress a fire, and minimizes overall equipment damage.
Our control panels for automatic fire suppression systems are available in two models to fit your unique needs and desired features.
Control Unit – Advanced Defense System
This industry-leading fire detection display is durable, powerful and easy to use. The Control Unit’s integrated LCD display is intuitive, assuring the machine operator that their equipment is being actively protected. Should a problem condition arise, an on-screen message combined with both audible and visual alarms will notify the operator. The system will also store the alert on the Control Unit’s internal log for quick and easy troubleshooting in the field.
The Control Unit is also highly configurable; multiple input and output circuits allow for fire suppression system customization ideal for the unique needs of your operations. The programming can be accomplished right at the panel with no need for external hardware.
Control Unit Features
Programmable LCD display available in multiple languages
Audible and visual alarms
Internal data log for troubleshooting
Telematics connectivity for remote system monitoring, real-time system statuses and manual system actuation
1-year stand-alone power
Up to two simultaneous detection circuits with adjustable delay
Compliant with ISO 13766 and other EC standards
Third-party tested and approved by FM HDME, Activfire and CE
Using outputs from the Control Unit and inputs on a vehicle’s telematics system, equipment owners can remotely monitor their automatic fire suppression systems. They even have the ability to manually discharge the suppression system when signaled by the vehicle remote control.
Our Control Unit integrates with virtually any vehicle management system, including:
CAT Product Link
J1939 CAN Bus
THE INDUSTRY-LEADING DISPLAY JUST GOT BETTER
Control Unit Upgraded with More Features
Our Control Unit has been leading the pack for nearly a decade, but we’re always striving to make our systems better. Recently upgraded, our Control Unit has increased data log storage, a real-time clock for time-stamped entries, and upgraded EMI and power surge protection.
Circuit Monitor Panel (CMP) – Basic Monitoring Done Well
The CMP is a basic fire detection panel done well. Using a combination of LED lights, buttons and a horn, the panel regularly monitors the vehicle’s fire suppression system and keeps the equipment operator informed of the system’s status. At indication of a fire, the display will activate the suppression system automatically while notifying the operator to evacuate the vehicle immediately.
