The FVS fire suppression system is a simple self-activating system, which is specifically designed for installation in an engine environment or electrical cabinets/enclosures.
The FVS System has an automatic self-seeking fire detection tube that suppresses fires where they start. The tube is manufactured from specially produced polymer material to achieve the desired detection and delivery characteristics.
The detection method does not rely on a single point but at any place along the tubes length.
An electronic speech module – VMMS is also used to alert the driver if the engine bay temperature is high, extinguisher cylinder pressure status and of a system deployment.
Optional Smoke detectors can be used with the system to alert the driver – ‘Warning Smoke Detected’
The speech module can also be programmed to provide additional customer specific messages.
In addition a high temperature monitoring loom which includes two thermal cut off devices is fitted in the engine compartment to provide a warning to the driver when a high temperature condition occurs.
A dual pressure switch is included with the kit that switches with a fall in pressure at 7 bar and 5 bar.
The VMMS unit monitors the cylinder pressure switches and in the event of a rapid pressure drop when the system is in a system deployment state – the unit will output a signal to the vehicle that can be used to switch off the vehicle in order to isolate the fuel pump and engine cooling fan as part of the TFL specification.
