FAAST Air Sampling System Fire Alarm Aspiration Sensing Technology


Fike’s FAAST is very early warning fire detection featuring the latest in Fire Alarm Aspiration Sensing Technology. Compatible and complementary to each of Fike’s fire alarm and fire suppression systems, this technology uses an advanced, intelligent smoke detector that actively draws air into its sensor through a pipe network. FAAST combines dual source blue LED and infra-red laser optical smoke detection with advanced algorithms to detect a wide range of fires while maintaining enhanced immunity to nuisance particulates … and enabling FAAST to deliver highly accurate and discreet early warning fire detection for a wide variety of environments / applications.
