Tobacco detection system

February 2015 Fire & Safety

The new Cig-Arrête SD Evolution Tobacco Detection System is the latest addition to the world’s leading illicit smoking products. The units are multilingual and remote controlled, plus every product in the range can be programmed with any voice message, of any length, in any language, by simply using a PC running Windows.

Messages are stored on a removable SD Flash card and can be easily changed via computer or by selecting any of the programmed messages with the remote control.

In addition, one can have any combination of detection elements from single smoke or flame; flame and smoke; flame, smoke and motion, making a total of five different combinations to suit any application. Quite simply, illicit smokers cannot escape from the new Cig-Arrête SD Evolution Tobacco Detection System.

All Cig-Arrête products are backward compatible meaning that existing and new systems can be connected together. There is also the choice of either hard-wiring the installation as before and adding a power supply unit, or simplifying installation by using wireless connection.
