Ziton is a leading global designer, manufacturer and distributor of high-quality, professional fire detection and alarm systems.
The systems are used for the protection of life and property in commercial, institutional and industrial buildings. Ziton equipment has been chosen to protect many high-profile installations worldwide. International sites include the prestigious Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham (UK), which comprises 76 analog addressable panels and over 22 000 line devices, NASA satellite communications centre - Spain; European Houses of Parliament - Belgium; MRT Railway Network - Singapore; Pfizer Chemical Plant - Ireland; Sun Valley Olympic Towers - China and the SANAE 4 base - Antartica. South African sites include the new Cape Town International Convention Centre, Koeberg Nuclear Power Station, Discovery Health head office, Monte Casino, Johannesburg International Airport and Columbus Stainless Steel.
The product range incorporates the ZP3 Analogue Addressable system, the ZC Conventional system, Maestro Graphics software and a range of specialist detection products.
ZP3 analog addressable
The Ziton ZP3 fire detection system is an advanced analog addressable system that has been proven in numerous installations worldwide. It is a programmable, software based system that provides early warning of fire or smoke. The system is approved to various international standards. This includes Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) UK certification to the EN54 (Parts 2 and 4) international standard. A full range of high-performance analog addressable fire sensors, including single, combination and multisensors are supported. Adjustable sensitivity, alarm verification and pre-alarm provide early warning without false alarms. Built-in diagnostics improves the level of maintenance and reduces cost. Included are remote diagnostic support (optional), sensor testing, status reports and contamination and near service reports.
The ZP3 peer-to-peer network allows standalone systems to be integrated to provide system-wide alarm reporting, coordinated evacuation, cross-panel cause-and-effect functionality, for large systems and multibuilding sites.
Ziton's Maestro graphics is a computer-aided operating and information system designed specifically for fire, security and emergency services. The Maestro computer is connected to an analog addressable fire system.
Although modern sensing systems detect the presence of fire, smoke or other dangers, at a very early stage, the management of alarms and responses is becoming increasingly complex. The Maestro system provides an effective and easy-to-use solution.
Graphically based on a system of building maps, the location and type of every device is clearly depicted by a series of icons. Icons may be custom designed and change colour or appearance to indicate the current status of all system equipment. The system also indicates the precise location of all events. Navigation tools provide rapid and easy movement through a variety of map structures allowing the operator to handle multi-alarm situations.
Specialist fire detection
Ziton provides a full range of specialist detection systems which includes high sensitivity smoke detection (HSSD), linear beam smoke detection, flame detection and intrinsically safe detection systems.
The Ziton Lasersense range of aspirating HSSD detectors respond to fires during the pre-incipient stage, long before the generation of visible smoke or flame. The system has proven to be a most effective means of detecting smoke or potential fire in many high-risk environments, such as computer centres and control rooms.
Ziton linear beam detection equipment is designed to provide effective early warning of smoke or fire in large areas such as warehouses, atriums and malls. Linear beam detectors are compatible with both analog addressable and conventional systems.
Ziton flame detectors are optical infra-red and ultra-violet units designed to provide a quick response to flames. Solar-blind, these detectors provide reliable detection for applications such as petroleum.
The Ziton Z700-Ex range of devices is designed for use in potentially explosive environments. The units are intrinsically safe and are certified by SIRA laboratories. These devices are designed for use with the ZP3 analogue addressable systems. Units available include smoke and heat sensors, manual call points and interface units.
International research into smarter ways of detecting fires is ongoing. Ziton, a member of the SPX Corporation, has gained wide acceptance by specifiers, installers, end-users and competitors.
