Fire Alarm Aspiration Sensing Technology®
Agency Listings
FAAST XT aspirating smoke detectors deliver highly accurate
Very Early Warning Fire Detection over a wide coverage area
and offer extensive communication capabilities.
The FAAST XT aspirating smoke detector combines
advanced particle separation with unique dual source optical
smoke detection technology to provide highly sensitive Very
Early Warning Fire Detection while providing enhanced
immunity to false alarms. This technology enables FAAST XT
to accurately detect incipient fire conditions as early as 60
minutes before a fire actually starts when set for Early
Warning and Very Early Warning Fire Detection in
applications ranging from mission critical to harsh and
extreme environments.
An installed FAAST XT device can protect up to 28,800 sq. ft.
(2,676 sq. m) in standard coverage type applications and can
be monitored in several different ways, including: Serial or
TCP Modbus, Ethernet over a LAN or a direct connection, or
via FAAST XT’s onboard USB. When connected to a LAN,
FAAST XT’s email server can provide email event notification
to appropriate personnel. FAAST XT also communicates
alarm and notifications via form C relays.
PipeIQ® is FAAST XT’s intuitive design, configuration, and
monitoring software. The all-in-one program can be used to
create a pipe network tailored to meet site specific
requirements, configure a FAAST XT device, and monitor an
installed device -- including live trending and reading of
historic reports.

• Provides Very Early Warning Fire Detection, as precise as
0.00046%/ft obscuration
• Five alarm levels and three sensitivity modes provide
application flexibility
• User configurable 3-speed fan, allowing for maximum
coverage area or minimizing on current consumption
• Ultrasonic flow sensing for each pipe inlet and chamber
airflow monitoring for precise system health information
• A single device covers up to 28,800 square feet
• Dual source optical detection chamber with
enhanced algorithms provide high sensitivity
with greater immunity to nuisance conditions
• Patented particle separator removes large,
non-fire particulate, ensuring chamber
health and extending the life of the fieldreplacable filter
