FAAST XM Conventional Aspirating Smoke Detector

faast 8100

The FAAST 8100 Conventional Aspirating Smoke Detector combines dual source (blue LED and infrared laser) optical smoke detection with a superior air sampling system and advanced detection algorithms.

The detector provides class A, B or C smoke detection, using an air sampling system that continuously draws air from the controlled environment into the detector chamber through a sampling pipe.

The three-stage filtering and particle rejection system ensures high sensitivity to smoke with excellent immunity to nuisance particles. The particle separator ensures that heavy particles bypass the detection chamber, extending filter life and preventing detection chamber contamination.

The FAAST 8100 offers two adaptable sensitivity modes. In Acclimate™ mode, the detector automatically adjusts itself to current environmental conditions to reduce nuisance alarms. Day/Night/Weekend mode enables technicians to preset alarm thresholds based on routine changes in the environment.

Users are guided through pipe layout design and detector configuration by the FAAST PipeIQ* design, configuration and monitoring software.
