Technoswitch partners with Ciqurix for video fire detection

Issue 8 2022 News & Events, Fire & Safety

Technoswitch is pleased to announce the signing of an exclusive distribution agreement with Ciqurix (UK), a leading supplier of video fire detection products.

The Ciqurix FCam Series is a fire detection solution combining infrared and visual feeds with built-in algorithms to create one of the most accurate and reliable fire detection solutions available today. It is able to detect a semi-concealed 40 cm pan fire at 180 m and a lighter flame at 10 m in under 10 seconds, inside or outside, day or night, in all weather.

Ciqurix FCam video fire detection systems are available in two versions: Flex and Core. The same multi-spectrum fire detection technology is used across both ranges, but the hardware and control systems differ.

Core is a fire system which provides primary fire detection using CCTV technology. It is designed to be compliant to BS5839-1:2017 (UK fire standard), uses fire-rated cabling, and will operate from its internal battery supply for over 24 hours. Each device on a Core system is connected directly to a Core Control Hub (or Extension Hub) with fire-rated, 4-pair STP cable using the Ciqurix QLS protocol. Camera feeds can be recorded on a third-party network video recorder fitted inside the Core Control Hub or Video Hub, and viewed remotely.

Flex is a CCTV system that can provide supplemental fire detection. It is connected using standard Cat. 6 network cabling and can potentially make use of existing network infrastructure (where suitable). Devices can be powered locally at 12 V DC or via PoE (with an adaptor), and the system does not have battery backup. Camera feeds can be recorded and viewed on third-party CCTV recording equipment using the RTSP format.
