FAAST XS Fire Alarm Aspiration
Sensing Technology®
FAAST XS® aspirating smoke detectors from GamewellFCI deliver highly accurate Very Early Warning Fire Detection for the smaller applications and offer extensive communication capabilities. The FAAST XS combines
advanced particle separation with unique dual source optical smoke detection technology to provide highly sensitive
Very Early Warning Fire Detection while providing
enhanced immunity to false alarms. This technology
enables FAAST XS to accurately detect incipient fire conditions as early as 60 minutes before a fire actually starts
when set for Early Warning and Very Early Warning Fire
Detection in applications ranging from mission critical to
harsh and extreme environments applications.
The Intelligent FAAST XS Detector, AAD-7100X, can be
wired without additional hardware to a new or pre-existing
Signaling Line Circuit (SLC). The SLC is used for transmitting communications directly to an E3 Series® or S3 Series
fire alarm control panel, utilizing the Velociti® mode. In the
Velociti® mode, the Intelligent FAAST XS will report back to
the fire alarm control panel as an aspirating detector. By
setting the sensitivity levels in PipeIQ®, the fire alarm control panel will initiate pre-alarm and alarm conditions based
on the feedback sent from the FAAST XS unit. Using the
Velociti mode, up to 159 units can populate one SLC. A
Conventional FAAST XS model is also available which
communicates alarm and notifications via Form C relays.
FAAST XS can also be monitored by Serial or TCP Modbus, Ethernet over a LAN or a direct connection, or via
FAAST XS’s onboard USB. When connected to a LAN,
FAAST XS’s email server can provide email event notification to appropriate personnel..
PipeIQ® is FAAST XS’s intuitive design, configuration, and
monitoring software. The all-in-one program can be used
to create a pipe network tailored to meet site specific
requirements, configure a FAAST XS device, and monitor
an installed device -- including live trending and reading of
historic reports.
