Fire alarm system
A fire alarm system is a set of equipment and combination of technical tools installed at one site and controlled from a single fire alarm console.
Fire alarm systems are intended for fire detection, processing and transmission (in set form) of fire notification and specialized data, and giving of orders for activation of automatic fire extinguishing units and activation of execution units of smoke protection systems, technological and engineering equipment, and other fire protection units.
Types of fire alarm systems
Signaling devices in such systems are represented by a quite complex electronic component which independently takes decisions on signaling 'fire'. They are cheap due to the usage of quite inexpensive electronic parts. Receiving and controlling units in such systems are simple, their primary functions, as a rule, being execution of operation scenarios depending on the type of signals received from signaling devices.
