Fire alarm is a systems that regulated and mandatory to implement in every area protecting against fire in context of early warning systems. Every building or industrial must be installed fire alarm systems properly and to be checked regularly. Each building or plant must have main control fire alarm as local central monitoring fire detection and controlling local alarm. Its centralized in every single area. Moreover the control fire alarm panels is scattered in various area.
How do we centralize every fire alarm systems of your factory within a lot of scattered area in to one monitoring screen?
Its easiest way to monitoring is making all of fire alarm control panel in a room with resuming indication each fire alarm control system. We implement an overview consist of layout area that all of fire alarm system installed, general indication every fire alarm system in one screen applying situation awareness graphics and historyzing or logging every single event of fire alarm as standard in Fire Safety regulation.
We have been successfully design and develop centralized monitoring system of fire alarm from scattered and remote area in a project of our client. In this project there are dozens of main control fire alarm (MCFA) stand alone should be monitored. Centralized server is presented to aggregate data from each remote fire alarm. Backbone network is implemented to communicate beetween those fire alarm controls to server at centralized monitoring room. Remote device installing each MCFA that do not have standard communication protocol, Its called remote terminal unit (RTU), Its consist of distributed input within standard industrial communication protocol through Ethernet network.
Centralized fire alarm monitoring system help us to recognized alarm or trouble real time. The overview gives us information in situational awareness methodology, deliver important information at once seeing.
