Honeywell announced the launch of its next-generation of Xtralis VESDA aspirating smoke detectors on 3 July, 2017.

The company claimed that the Xtralis VESDA-E VEP offers improved detection performance, with up to six times better dust rejection to minimise nuisance alarms, thereby saving building owners significant potential costs from fire department calls.

In addition, the technology offers higher detection stability over a wider range of environments and improved consistency through its Flair Detection Technology. Its new particle characterisation capability provides analytics for targeted detection and efficient and effective response, the company said.

Talking more about the smoke detector, Tony Nasr, general manager, Honeywell Security and Fire, Middle East, Turkey and Africa, said: "The next-generation of Xtralis VESDA can detect smoke before fires are visible to the naked eye, which enable early warnings and helps avoid any potential damage.”

The Xtralis VESDA series occupies the same mounting footprint, pipe, conduit and electrical connector positioning as the previous VESDA VLP, the company said.
