Challenge

Does the central processing unit of your sprinkler system automatically display errors, such as an accidentally closed valve or no water in the reservoir? Then you are obviously already enjoying the benefits of electrical monitoring and no longer need to look up every single fitting in the course of daily checks but just glance at the display of the central unit.

But what happens when an error occurs between two daily checks? Ideally, this fault is routed to a constantly manned location and the employee there immediately takes action to resolve the error.

If you still do not have failure relay set up or any fault message management, we encourage you to quickly catch up with this. Because not only an error but also a fire can occur between two daily checks…

Solution

he forwarding of fault messages from your sprinkler system to a permanently manned location allows a more rapid response to possible errors and therefore provides better operational safety. Therefore, the directive VdS CEA 4001 would allow daily checks to be omitted.

If in your company you have a continuously occupied site with access to in-house building control technology, then we can set up an error message relay for you.  Alternatively, we relay the messages to the VdS-recognized center of one of our cooperation partners. Should you decide to do this, we will install a transmission device at your company where current failure messages will be relayed to the control centre via telephone network.

In the actual event of a fault, the employee at the permanently manned point or monitoring station acknowledges the incoming fault and initiates the execution of an action plan in accordance with you.

Take the next step with us regarding the operational safety of your sprinkler system and cut back on daily checks!
