F220 Extinguishing Agent Release System


The Pertronic F220 Extinguishing Agent Release System provides automatic control of one or more fire suppression systems.

The system is based on the Pertronic F220 analogue addressable fire alarm control panel, together with the Pertronic Extinguishing Agent Release Controller (ARC). A single F220 panel may be fitted with multiple ARCs. Each ARC provides control, fault supervision, and monitoring for one fire suppression system.

The control panel is fitted with one Pertronic Agent Control Station for each ARC. The Agent Control Station has a keyboard and display panel providing status and fault indication for the associated ARC and the suppression system.

In addition to the control station mounted on the panel, each ARC may communicate with up to nine additional control stations. Two types of control stations are available: The Agent Control Station (ACS), and the Local Control Station (LCS). The ACS has a Time to Discharge count-down timer, status indicator LEDs, local buzzer mute control, Auto Release Disabled button, and a full set of fault indicating LEDs. The LCS is similar to the ACS, however, it does not have the fault indicator LEDs.

The Auto Release Disabled button on any ACS or LCS may be used to prevent extinguishing release at any time, including after the automatic discharge process has been initiated. Each control station also has a lift-flap break-glass manual call point (MCP), allowing the agent release process to be triggered manually.

The F220 Extinguishing Agent Release System includes indoor and weatherproof audio-visual (AV) signs. AV signs are available with a range of messages and audible alarm signals, and an optional high-visibility count-down timer.

F220 Extinguishing Agent Release Panels are available in a range of cabinet sizes and styles, including weatherproof.
