FIRE SPOTTING CAMERA SYSTEM
Argos Fire Protection Ltd offer 2 F-Cam Fire Camera systems by Ciqurix, formally Spot Fire.
Able to work both inside and out, these camera systems offer a real alternative to traditional large area detection (beam detectors in warehouses etc.) as well as providing a totally new way to detect fire in external areas.
The F-Cam Fire Spotting Camera systems are ideal for use in Factories, Recycling Plants, Commercial Laundries, Transport Depots, Oil Refineries, Warehouses, Building Sites, Marinas, plus numerous other applications. The F-Cam is now being specified by insurance companies for these types of risk – many in which fire detection has previously been impossible.
The F-Cam Fire Camera can detect a small flaming fire at up to 180 metres distance and the average detection time is 10 seconds, which is potentially significantly quicker than the response from traditional large area detection systems – especially where there are high ceilings. Long before the smoke has reached the ceiling and formed a plume dense enough to trigger an optical beam detector, the F-Cam has raised the alarm – saving lives, saving property and saving money. It also provides large area coverage from a single point and can be set up to match the particular environment.
The 2 types of F-CAM Systems
