The FAAST XM aspirating smoke detector 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. This enables FAAST XM to accurately detect incipient fire conditions as early as 30 to 60 minutes before a fire actually starts for Early Warning Fire Detection and Very Early Warning Fire Detection.

For initial system creation, the PipeIQ** software guides users through pipe layout. The software also provides intuitive control over system configuration and ongoing system monitoring. An installed device can be monitored through its integral display, from a computer connected to the device, remotely through a web browser when the detector is connected to a network, or by Modbus/TCP protocol over Ethernet. When connected to a mail server, FAAST XM can also email status updates to appropriate personnel. The detector can also communicate alarm levels, urgent and minor faults, and isolate inputs via eight form C relays.

To enable a full detection strategy, FAAST XM smoke detection combines its advanced communications capabilities with an extensive range of customizable settings. The smoke detector provides five alarm levels of smoke detection that can be programmed for latching or non-latching relays. To accommodate specific codes or environments, alarm delays can be set anywhere between 0 to 60 seconds. FAAST XM also supports two 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.
