Honeywell launches next generation of aspirating smoke detectors to enhance fire safety measures in buildings

September 2017

Honeywell, a world leader in advanced smoke and fire detection technologies, has launched the next generation of Xtralis Vesda aspirating smoke detectors for reliable very early warning smoke detection.

Honeywell’s Xtralis Vesda-E VEP offers improved detection performance – one and a half times greater sensitivity than Vesda VLP, up to six times better dust rejection to minimize nuisance alarms, saving building owners significant potential costs from fire department calls.

The technology offers higher detection stability over a wider range of environments and improved consistency through its Flair Detection Technology. Its new particle characterisation capability provides analytics for targeted detection and efficient and effective response.

“Honeywell is a leader in the fire safety and prevention industry with a major focus on public safety in the Middle East. Our initiatives in this sector are more important than ever with the introduction of rigorous new fire safety regulations across the region,” said Tony Nasr, general manager, Honeywell Security and Fire, Middle East, Turkey and Africa.

“At Honeywell we strive continuously to enhance our offering and provide our customers with cutting-edge life safety solutions. The next-generation of Xtralis Vesda can detect smoke before fires are visible to the naked eye, which enable early warnings and helps avoid any potential damage,” he concluded.

According to a statement, the next generation Vesda will: provide virtually seamless retrofit options;   enable longer pipe runs for convenient detector mounting; reduce maintenance costs by extending detector coverage up to 20 per cent in high-ceiling environments; be compatible with existing Vesdanet installations allowing for monitoring of both Vesda-E and legacy detectors via the latest iVesda application.
