Fire detection and suppression for server cabinets

August 2019 Fire & Safety

The TEC601, designed and manufactured by Technoswitch, is an all-in-one fire and extinguishing rack-mountable control system designed to protect electronic equipment in 19-inch server room cabinets.

The TEC601 is capable of detecting a fire and releasing either the built-in, or externally mounted, Stat-X aerosol generators. Signals can be sent to other devices from the relay outputs for fire, fault and discharge conditions.

The Stat-X aerosol generator can easily be replaced after a discharge to minimise any downtime. It also allows for the wiring of an external detector or linear heat detection as a third detection zone. An air-handling unit can be connected through the device to allow the air ventilation system to be cut off during a fire.

The Stat-X aerosol generator is a self-contained stainless steel extinguishing unit that, when activated, produces an ultra-fine aerosol extinguishing agent that is significantly more effective than other extinguishing agents.

Features

• Rack mount unit (2U).

• Built-in battery backup with intelligent battery charging and testing.

• Built-in real-time clock with dedicated battery backup.
