The Information You Need
To Protect Your Most Critical
Business Assets
FAAST has one focus. To protect people,
mission critical facilities and high value
assets by sensing the faintest traces of
smoke, in a wide range of challenging
FAAST is a ground breaking
aspirating solution designed
to deliver highly accurate and
discreet early warning fire
Using unique dual vision technology
and intuitive features that allow access
to data from anywhere in the world, the
product outperforms other aspirating
systems on the market.
Intuitive Data
Dual Vision. One Focus.
FAAST provides you with the data you need to manage
your environment. It includes 5 alarm levels, 10 pre-alarm
particulate levels and a 10-level airflow pendulum which
verifies that air is flowing effectively through the pipe
network. It also includes a full range of fault indications.
All of this information can be read quickly and easily on the
device’s intuitive integral display* or through a variety of
remote devices.
FAAST’s dual vision sensing technology uses a blue
LED to detect a wide variety of fires with extremely low
concentrations of smoke and an infrared laser to identify
nuisances (like dust) which can cause false alarms and
downtime. Advanced algorithms interpret signals from both
sources to meet one single focus — to protect your facility,
people and assets with the earliest and most accurate
smoke detection available.
*Multiple language cards available. See Ordering Information.

Quick Set-Up
If there is a situation at your facility, you need to know about
it instantly. FAAST’s unique onboard Ethernet interface
enables you to monitor the detector from any Internet
browser, smart phone or mobile device with VPN capability.
You can also configure the detector to deliver e-mail status
updates to appropriate personnel. This means you will be
advised of whatever you need to know to protect your facility
— no matter where you are.
FAAST’s all-in-one system configuration and monitoring
software, PipeIQ®, guides you through initial pipe layout
and system configuration. Once the system is installed, it
enables ongoing configuration and system monitoring from
anywhere in the world, via the Internet, using FAAST’s
onboard Ethernet connection. The PipeIQ® software is
included with FAAST.

Fire detection for the toughest
FAAST LT delivers a flexible
solution for applications
where standard detection
methods are prone to failure
or false alarm.
Designed with the installer and end
user in mind, the device serves a
wide variety of applications where
maintenance is difficult, other smoke
detection methods are inappropriate
due to harsh environments, or areas
where aesthetics matters.

FAAST Applications
Quick Set-Up
FAAST LT’s main focus is applications where standard
detection is not appropriate due to harsh environments,
difficult access, tamper proofing or complex spaces.
PipeIQ® LT the all-in-one system design and configuration
software, guides you through initial pipe layout and system
configuration. Once the system is installed, it enables
ongoing configuration and system monitoring via a USB
Great Indoors
FAAST LT is a reliable and flexible solution for large public
areas like shopping centres, airports, or stadia where
evacuations are complex. It is also ideal for warehouses
where access and maintenance is difficult and standard
detection is not appropriate. The device allows access to
these areas, reducing the cost of maintenance. FAAST LT
also provides an alternative to beam detection where smoke
stratification may occur.
Restricted Access
For areas such as prisons and public spaces where devices
can be tampered with, FAAST LT can be installed outside
of the protected area while air sampling points are located
discreetly within.
Extreme Environments
FAAST LT is suitable for areas such as cold storage facilities
or spaces with high-airflow, and environmental conditions
outside the tolerance of typical fire detection technologies.
The device can be installed in a temperate, easy-to-access
location while sampling points are in the extreme environment.
For different detection strategies choose from single,
dual channel or co-operative detectors

Efficient maintenance – filters and optics
Technology for the Toughest
FAAST LT combines proven aspirating detection
technologies and technical design excellence to deliver
reliable smoke detection for the toughest environments.The
device includes high sensitivity laser detectors, ultrasonic
flow sensors, protected electronics and fully independent
chambers to enable the device to reach the highest
sensitivity required for Class C applications, up to 2000m2
and Class A applications up to 150m2.
Ease of Installation and Maintenance
FAAST LT is designed for efficient installation and
maintenance. You do not have to worry about additional items
such as brackets or relays since all of this is provided with
the unit as standard. Sensors and filters are easily accessible
for routine maintenance and an intuitive fault pendulum
display allows rapid problem identification and solving.
Discreet Detection
When aesthetics matter, such as in museums, churches or
mansions, FAAST LT provides a flexible, discreet smoke
detection solution that is nearly invisible to the public. At the
same time, it provides early smoke detection giving more
time to protect high-value items from fire.
Mission Critical *
For environments such as small server rooms, where only
a couple of detection points are required and the loss
of downtime is extremely important, FAAST is the ideal
solution. It provides early smoke detection to help facilities
stay up and running 24/7 and prevents unnecessary
activation of suppression systems.
