Fire Alarm Aspiration
Sensing Technology®
FAAST XS aspirating smoke detectors deliver highly
accurate Very Early Warning Fire Detection for the smaller
applications and offer extensive communication capabilities.
• Provides Very Early Warning Fire Detection, as precise as
0.00029%/ft obscuration
• Three alarm levels and three sensitivity modes provide
application flexibility
• User configurable 3-speed fan, allowing for maximum coverage
area or minimizing on current consumption
• Ultrasonic flow sensing and chamber airflow monitoring
for precise system health information
The FAAST XS aspirating smoke detector 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
• A single device covers up to 5,000 square feet (464 sq. m)
• Dual source optical detection chamber with enhanced
algorithms provide high sensitivity with greater immunity to
nuisance conditions
• Patented particle separator removes large, non-fire particulate,
ensuring chamber health and extending the life of the fieldreplaceable filter
• TCP and Serial modbus for easy integration with building
management systems
• Easy configuration via USB interface, no external power needed
• Onboard Ethernet interface enables remote monitoring,
configuration, web server and e-mail notifications
• Multilingual LCD user interface allows for detailed device
information and interaction such as: Active faults, precise airflow
monitoring, reset of airflow baseline, test/reset/isolate, and more
• Configurable air flow fault thresholds and verification period
• Convenient wiring compartment
• Status-at-a-glance provides immediate alarm, fault and
airflow status

An installed FAAST XS device can protect up to 5,000 sq. ft.
(464 sq. m) in standard coverage type applications and can be
monitored in several different ways, including: 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. FAAST
XS also communicates alarm and notifications via form C relays.
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.
