Integrated fire detection system
Apollo Fire Detectors’ new OpenConnect Gateway fully integrates fire detection with building management systems (BMS), without the need for complex systems or the use of multiple customized interfaces, the company said. The OpenConnect Gateway is effectively a ‘plug and play’ device that can be incorporated into a fire control panel design, relaying information from the panel into the BMS using standard protocols such as BACnet, Modbus or LonWorks. This gives both system integrators and end users the advantage of utilizing an intra-system communication architecture between both environments, while maintaining the integrity of each system independently. The benefits include faster response times, coordination strategies, and utilization of pre-planned and/or pre-programmed evacuation procedures in case of emergency or times of failure. Because the gateway is an integral part of the fire control panel, it is also simple to install and configure reducing the associated time and costs when implemented into projects, the company said.
