Minimize Downtime... avoid Shutdown
Data rooms, server rooms, IT facilities and remote hubs are prime examples of where very early warning smoke
detection is essential. When it comes to protecting mission critical equipment, high value assets and life safety,
FireNET Vapor ® is the preferred solution!

Wide Product Range
The FireNET Vapor ® range offers products for all types of applications, with solutions ranging from an aspirating
conventional spot (point) type detector system through to a 15-sector Very High Sensitivity Aspirating Detector.
Let sensitivity and addressability determine your ideal choice.
The time line below shows the evolution of a fire on an overheating printed circuit board. The event progresses
from releasing small invisible particles into a raging fire over a substantial period of time. The more time you
have to react to an event decreases the likelihood of loss and maintenance costs of your business.
The extra response time created by early detection is a critical component in managing any fire event.

Reliable Very Early Warning Solutions
Some modern Internet data centers use smoke detection
systems that are often unable to identify the precise source
of the event without shutting down a facility for manual
investigation and causing unacceptable loss of business
The FireNet Vapor® range provides solutions that can
pinpoint the source of an incipient smoke incident therefore
minimizing downtime and the time to locate the event. The
ability to localize a fire event in up to 4, 6 or 15 sectors within
a zone, enables the individual identification of alarms in
areas such as underfloor and ceiling voids, cabinet banks
and air handling units. By providing up to four alarm levels
per channel, a wide sensitivity range of 0.001% to 20%
obscuration/m (0.0003% to 6.1% obs/ft), and the ability to
compensate for ambient contamination from outside air,
FireNet Vapor® is the preferred choice of air-sampling system
with its flexibility and functionality.
The alarm output can be used to automatically shut down a
particular server cabinet at fault or drive a localized
suppression system.
Remote base stations are as mission critical as larger server
rooms. These are the heart of today’s communications and
down-time will not only result in financial loss but also the
disruption of vital business communication. For these
business critical sites, the FireNet Vapor® range provides a
perfect and economic solution in the VPR-SD1 or VPR-SD2
air-sampling smoke systems.
VPR-SD2 systems contain 1 or 2
conventional spot (point) type
smoke detectors and can be set up
for double knock detection to
minimize the risk of false alarms
without compromising on
sensitivity. However, when higher
sensitivity or additional response
time is essential, VPR-SD1
systems can provide the solution
with a smoke detection sensitivity
ranging from 0.06% obscuration/m
(0.02% obs/ft).
