Panasonic Fire Alarm Systems

The demands on fire alarm systems are increasing. The system must be on the highestpossible alert during the whole day in various activities. The most important task for afire alarm system is early detection of a fire in order to save lives and property in allkinds of environments. Fires which are difficult to detect such as glowing or smolderingfires have to be quickly & effectively detected. On the other hand, false alarms shouldalso be reduced to a minimum. This means that the system must have both highsensitivity and a low sensitivity “at the same time”. The system is also exposed to anincreasing number of interferences such as mobile telephones and changes in thesurroundings. All these demands require an intelligent system, i.e. both the c.i.e. andthe detectors have to be intelligent.
