New processes to economize fuel consumption and exhaust treatment in vehicles are generating additional heat in the engine compartment, creating a higher probability that conditions in the engine can cause a fire incidence. Higher fuel injection pressures in modern diesel engines can easily cause a fire if one of the fuel pipes leaks.
Robust Fire Detectors for Engine Compartments
The evolution of the thermostat from pure thermal switch to a full fire monitoring system was a logical step for a quick detection of a fire in the engine compartment or undercarriage of buses, trains, and armored vehicles. Our fire detectors, protectively housed in brass, plastic (PA66), or Teflon (PTFE), have been proven reliable and accurate in tests performed at the Frauenhofer Institute in Germany, and are among the top competitors in their division.
Resistant to temperature variations, stones, salt, vibrations, impacts, and other environmental factors, firedect’s fire detectors are reliable and accurate, providing precision detection in extreme conditions.
How do firedect-products work?
FIRE ALARM DISPLAY IM100
Now retrofitting in buses, vehicles and trucks - the IM 100 fire detection center monitors up to 50 fire and smoke detectors in the vehicle.
Robust heat sensors that work reliably even in the engine compartment and other critical areas - protection class IP69K.
OPTICAL SMOKE DETECTORS
Detect fires before flames occur - perfect for the vehicle interior and in the luggage compartment.
FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEM
Activates automatically in the event of a fire and stifles the flame with environmentally friendly water spray mist.
CONTROL UNIT AF200
Shows driver the location of fire and initiates extinguishing procedure.
CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR
Warns you about high carbon monoxide levels.
