Integrated Supervision for Fire Suppression Systems
A latching actuator with an integrated supervisory feature to satisfy standards and codes in the gaseous extinguishing market.
Latching actuators are some of the primary releasing devices used on gaseous extinguishing systems in the market today. These actuators are usually attached to the suppressant’s discharge valve. Maintenance technicians would sometimes accidentally fail to reinstall the actuator back onto the discharge valve, rendering the device useless. In 2016, to alleviate this failure point, new codes and standards were implemented that require an audible or visual signal at the fire alarm control panel (FACP) if the actuator is removed.
The TLX Solution
TLX Technologies developed a latching actuator with an integrated supervisory feature that allows for fully-engaged installation detection. Because the supervisory feature is self-contained, TLX’s Supervised Latching Solenoid Actuator is easier to use and install than options offered by other companies that require an additional component and electrical connection to the fire suppression system. Rugged construction, ultra-fast response, and the ability to be reset ensures consistent performance over the actuator’s entire life span.
