Fire Alarm System

A fire alarm system takes a central position in the plant-specific fire protection. Specifically, it is about an electronic plant that receives, evaluates and forwards data from the integrated detectors of the fire alarm system. In case of fire, the fire alarm system triggers extinguishing systems and alerts the fire brigade. Buildings that are specially endangered (hospitals, factory halls or computer centres) are endowed with a fire alarm system. The advantage of the system is that it can work error-free even if no persons are on-site. Through directly alerting the fire brigade, the fire may be extinguished in the early stages.
