Xtralis will be presenting a webinar on the latest innovation in open-area smoke detection, hosted by Hi-Tech Security Solutions, on 28 June 2011.
Rob Galic, OSID (open-area smoke imaging detection) business development manager for Xtralis will; be presenting a webinar on 28 June at 10:00 CAT (Central African Time, or Johannesburg time).
The company that revolutionised very early warning smoke detection with VESDA has developed a new technology to eliminate detection compromises in open areas – open-area smoke imaging detection (OSID) by Xtralis.
VESDA air-sampling smoke detection is the most reliable solution for very early warning smoke detection. But when very early warning is not the priority, traditional detection systems have proved problematic. Beam detectors are susceptible to building movement, difficult to install, and prone to false alarms. And heat and flame detectors only detect fire in the developed, flaming stage, which negates early detection and results in threats to life safety and major property damage.
OSID cost-effectively solves all the problems associated with protecting open areas from fire. Its uncompromising performance is based on the patented use of digital imaging, dual-frequency beams and smart algorithms to deliver.
* Fast, reliable standard sensitivity detection with absolute calibration.
* Full immunity to vibrations and extreme building movement.
* Complete resistance to dust, steam, fog, condensation and other obstructions.
* Full immunity to reflections.
* Simple installation, commissioning and maintenance to dramatically lower costs.
* Consistent performance in any ambient lighting or total darkness.
* 3D volumetric coverage for design flexibility and additional cost savings.
OSID overcomes the weaknesses of traditional detection solutions used in large, open spaces where standard sensitivity detection is required. In its simplest configuration, OSID resembles a beam detector but is an entirely new technology. As the prestigious winner of the ‘Judge’s Choice Award’ at the ISC West 2011 New Product Showcase (NPS), OSID is ideal for use in a wide range of industries and applications. These include atriums, domes and large rooms in airports, train stations, hotels, convention centres, entertainment venues, shopping centres, stadia, office buildings/complexes and warehouses.
