How VESDA-E VEU/VEP works
Air is continually drawn from the protected area through the
air sampling pipe network and into the detector by a high
efficiency aspirator. The air sampling pipe network can
contain up to four pipes.
The air from each sampling pipe passes through a flow
sensor and then a sample of the air is drawn into the Flair
detection chamber via the sampling module, after first
passing through the filter.
An additional filter provides clean air to protect the optical
surfaces inside the detection chamber from contamination.
TM
The Flair detection chamber uses the equivalent of
330,000 sensors and sophisticated algorithms for smoke
detection and particle type characterisation. If the detected
smoke is higher than the set alarm thresholds it is reported
as an Alert, Action, Fire1 or Fire2 alarm condition. Air is
exhausted from the detector and may be vented back into
the protected zone. Alarms can be signaled via Relays and
VESDAnet. Ethernet and WiFi can be used for configuration
and secondary monitoring, and a USB interface is provided
for initial setup. A series of LEDs display Alarm, Trouble,
Disable and detector power on status. A button allows the
user to Reset or Disable the detector. In addition, an optional
3.5” LCD display shows the detector status, including smoke
level and a smoke level bar graph, alarm thresholds, trouble
status, % airflow level, normalization status and filter life used.

VESDA-E VEA**
StaX**
VESDA-E VEA is the first addressable
aspirating smoke detector (ASD) for standard
addressable detection applications with
non-intrusive servicing and interruption free
VEA-040-A00
operation and significantly lower
maintenance time. VEA provides pinpoint
addressability by using a network of
microbore tubes connected to sampling
points located in the protected area. VEA
provides superior detection with inbuilt filters
and self cleaning, allowing assured detection
VEA-040-A10
with minimum false alarms.
The Automated Pipe Cleaning StaX
improves performance and minimizes
maintenance costs in dusty
environments. During pipe cleaning, it
forces an air pressure wave to travel
out along the pipe network. This
changes the pressure within the pipe
to be above atmospheric pressure so
that air flows out of the pipe carrying
built-up dust and lint with it.
Power Supply Unit (PSU)
The PSU StaX is an integrated power
supply providing operating power
including battery backup for VESDA-E
detectors. It provides 24 volt operating
power as well as a battery charger
function that supervises and maintains
the standby batteries.
ECO Gas Detection
ECO StaX provides integrated gas
detection using the same ASD pipe
network which is also used for smoke
detection.
The ECO StaX contains four standard
ECO detectors with the necessary
manifolds to hold them in place. Up to
three ECO StaX can be used with one
4-pipe VESDA-E detector.
The wiring terminal blocks are external to the ECO detectors
providing easy field wiring. The ECO StaX is powered by an
external 24V power supply and current consumption can be
found in VESDA ECO literature.
