Gent offers new ASD interface for FAAST

Gent, fire alarm, aspirated smoke detector

Gent by Honeywell’s new ASD interface has been developed to enable FAAST’s aspirating-smoke-detection technology to be seamlessly integrated with the company’s Vigilon fire-detection system. This interface is designed to work with the FAAST 8100 (shortly to be rebranded FAAST XM) and FAAST LT ranges.

This ASD interface is compliant with EN 54-17 and enables full Vigilon control panel integration thanks to a combined loop interface and power-supply unit with 24-hour battery back-up via the integrated EN54-4 power-supply unit. The unit is supplied in a bundled kit, complete with batteries and simple connection via a printed circuit board, eliminating the need for end of lines and special cabling between the FAAST system and the loop interface.

Dina Mistry, Gent’s marketing and communications specialist, explains, ‘FAAST’s aspirating smoke detection systems are incredibly reliable, and the way that they identify and react to smoke particles increases the time for safe evacuation, lowers the risk of business interruption and reduces the likelihood of false alarms.’
