Graphic Control Station
Europe III Graphic Control Station has been developed to
boost the capacity, management and presentation of information
for fire protection installations.
The system consists of a graphic software installed in the
Control Station computer and Algorithmic Control panel in the
series SA connected to the computer through a port RS-232,
RS-485 or TCP/IP.
Algorithmic control panels in the series SA are subordinated
to the management carried out from the Control Station, but
without loosing autonomy at any moment, even in the case
of loss of communication with the Control Station, each control
panel continues controlling is installation.
The system allows us to see detailed information of each element
in the installation in real time. This information is shown in several
windows: installation plan windows, system event window, sector
We can act on the installation points from any window and through
the mouse: connect/disconnect points, request of information
about its state, activate/deactivate operation sequences, restore
the installation, reading of each detector state…
The installation can be represented through plans generated on
bit maps of any size and number of colours. The installation active
elements (control panels, points, sectors, sequences) can be
placed on this plans in such a way that the state changes are
immediately shown on them, and the Control Station user can
also have a global view of the state of each area in the installation
just with a quick look at the associated plan.
• Graphic representation of the whole installation allowing for the
use of key plans per fire sectors.
• Buttons for easier actions can be defined in each plan such as:
silencing warning tones, restoring alarms, changing the system
operation mode, skipping to specific plans…
• Skip to a plan associated to an automatic alarm configurable
by the user.
• Full operation of the system through the mouse or keyboard.
• Access to the Control Station functions by persons not involved
in the system can be limited though keys as well as assigning
each user his/her operation through the assignation of levels.
• Background list of each incidence produced in the installation
and its evolution.
• Symbols for active elements fully definable by the user.
• Operation under Windows environment.

If required, connection can be executed through protocol TCP/IP
through the existing net in the installation.
• Sound warnings for incidences through a sound card and system
• Graphic bookshop editor which allows the Control System user
to make customized image bookshops, which will be used in
the Control Station for drawing the plan active elements.
panels remote
control software
System which allows for remote control and management of
fire detection installations. The remote control system provides
important advantages as well as remote maintenance of the
ones which are currently working.
The system allows for remote control of any installation, based
on the series SA central units. It consists of a control software
AGE44 which allows to show the front panel of the control
panel on the computer monitor and perform any action on the
panel as if we were in front of it.
It is especially intended for controlling: hotel chains, shopping
centres, car parks and facilities where remote control from a
different place where the control panel is located, is needed.
For example: place for the maintenance central unit,
headquarters, etc.
In the installation monitoring mode, any incidence produced
in one of the monitored control panel generates a warning
signal which allows us to connect with it for consults or
The system admits many possibilities for connection networks:
• Ports series, RS-232 and RS-485.
• AE2NET Network.
• Ethernet
control of
AGUILERA ELECTRONICA software development providing
control for the Fire Protection Installations based on Europe
III and/or Europe II Graphic Control Stations.
We are allowed to:
• Create and maintain an installation database, each one
managed by a control station.
• Monitor the state of installations defined in the database,
showing the state of each one in real time.
• Control any monitored installation in a remote way as if we
were in front of it.
Connection between applications and remote installations is
made by using TCP/IP communications. In this way, we have
access to installations provided with this type of communications,
independently from its geographical position.

The AE /SA- ILW gateway
converts the dump protocol,
Aguilera Electronica´s series,
to a LonWorks protocol. The main
use of the device is to connect
the central algorithmic units in a
LON network.
This equipment is based on the
3150 NEURON chip at 20 Mhz
with topology free at 778Kbit/s
(FTT-10). DIN rail mounting. The
serial communications are done
through one of the RS-232 ports
of the algorithmic control panel.
Algorithmic detectors
Smoke optical detectors
Aguilera Electrónica directionable optical detectors manage a smoke optical
detector. It is aimed at taking light measures diffusing smoke particles, evaluating
its density and increase percentage throughout the time, then, already analyzed
information is sent to the central unit and this central unit compares the results
obtained with the programmed parameters for each case and decides to send
the alarm signal.
At Aguilera Electrónica we have three types of algorithmic
optical detectors:
AE/SA-OP optical detector.
AE/SA-OPZ, optical detector with alarm warning device.
AE/SA-OPI, low-profile optical detector.
Heat detector
Aguilera Electrónica AE/SA-T algorithmic heat detector
manages two temperature parameters, a differential one
taking temperature increase measures in time, and a
fixed one controlling the room temperature detected at
every moment. Both differential and fixed parameters
are analyzed and sent to the control panel so that the
alarm warning is produced in accordance with the
programming carried out in each case.
Optical-heat detector
The optical/heat detector made by Aguilera Electrónica
AE/SA-OPT is a multi-sensor detector with double
technology managing a smoke optical sensor and a heat
optical sensor. The optical sensor is aimed at taking light
measures diffusing smoke particles and its increase
while the heat sensor takes measures for heat variations.
Both measures are analyzed and sent to the control
panel so that the alarm warning is produced if
programmed parameters for each case are reached.
Algorit Algorithms
Signal received by a smoke detector in clean air may vary due to pollution
effects, dirty environments or punctual presence of smoke (smokers’ room).
The range of smoke detectors in the Algorithmic system are provided with
the ALGORIT adjustment algorithms which compensate such drift in order
to maintain a more constant response value throughout the time, within
the permitted limits.
Through the combination of two independent sensors: photoelectric sensor
and temperature sensor, the multi-sensor detector AE/SA-OPT makes the
alarm decision through the processing of both signals, in a faster way.
These signal processes allow us to discriminate the non-wanted alarms
once and for all.
Advantages of
the detectors
• Solution for slow smoke: Present smoke
detectors have difficulties when detecting slow
smoke with no flames in closed rooms. The
origin of the problem is in the resistance the
air offers when coming out from the optical
chamber of the detectors, preventing from the
inflow of smoke, an indispensable function
for the smoke to be detected. Optical detectors
AE/SA-OP and OPT in this system, solve this
problem through the development of natural
ventilation based on an internal airwell
communicating the inside of the optical
chamber with the casing upper part not in
contact with the ceiling, creating the “chimney
effect” which makes the air exchange easier.
• Automatic adjustment of sensitivity:
Algorithmic application that compensates for
dusty and polluted environments maintaining
the margin between stand-by and alarm, to
acceptable levels; from such levels detectors
require to be cleaned or replaced.
• Intelligence shared with the central unit: In
this function the micro capacity for each
detector is used so that sampling is managed
and analyzed information is sent. In this way,
higher efficiency is achieved and
communications are more powerful and fluent.
• Hidden base: This new feature eliminates
the view of joints between the base and the
ceiling creating the idea of a suspended
• Detectors with alarm buzzer: They are
presented in two different options, with or
without built-in buzzer. The option with buzzer
is recommended for blind people’s houses
and bedrooms.
• Auto isolator: Each detector, manual call
point and modules in the system are provided
with auto isolator, a device that, in case of
short-circuiting in an equipment, disconnects
the equipment with such problem so that the
rest of the equipment is not affected.
