VESDA Very Early Warning Aspirating Smoke Detection (ASD)

Xtralis invented VESDA Very Early Warning Aspirating Smoke Detection (ASD). VESDA by Xtralis solutions provide continuous air sampling, which provides the earliest possible warning of an impending fire hazard. VESDA detectors have multi-level warnings and a wide range of sensitivity that does not degrade or change over time. Even minute levels of smoke can be detected before a fire has time to escalate.

VESDA is available in a variety of models to accommodate a broad range of environments and applications. From small to very large open spaces, and from the cleanest to the dirtiest environments, VESDA multi-level detection provides reliable, high-sensitivity, very early warning smoke detection. Please contact us for more information.


VESDA-E – Next Generation of ASD Innovation

The Xtralis VESDA-E features VESDA Smoke+, offering dramatically increased sensitivity, up to 15 times greater than previous models. VESDA Analytics allows for targeted detection of the most common fire threats, in particular WireTrace which allows specific detection of burning wire at even higher sensitivities without nuisance alarms. With up to 40% greater coverage in high airflow environments, the VESDA-E range of aspirating smoke detectors represent considerable CAPEX savings. VESDA-E is completely backwards-compatible and with VESDA Flex, field upgradeable, the new VESDA-E ASD system reduces the total cost of ownership of the system.

VESDA VLI ASD for Industrial Applications

VESDA VLI was designed and created to provide an effective and reliable Very Early Warning Smoke Detector system to meet the specific challenges of Industrial applications up to 20,000 sq ft. VLI has proved itself to be capable of handling the challenges of a myriad of industrial applications and has been designed to be deployed without special application engineering, system design support, and enhanced maintenance procedures that were previously required. Please contact us for more information.


VESDA ECO ASD Gas Detection & Environmental Monitoring

VESDA ECO by Xtralis combines aspirating smoke detection with gas detection and environmental monitoring. It uses an existing VESDA pipe network to actively sample air for the presence of smoke as well as hazardous/combustible gases. Integration with fire alarm systems delivers real-time situational awareness and intelligent emergency response, including the activation of demand-controlled ventilation. Please contact us for more information.


Xtralis OSID Open-Area Smoke Detection

Open-Area Smoke Imaging Detection (OSID) by Xtralis provides reliable, cost-effective smoke detection for open spaces where fire detection presents unique challenges and where very early warning is not always the priority. OSID uses a camera-like device and an emitter aligned on the opposite wall within the protected area. The emitter sends IR and UV coded light signals. If the light signal is altered due to the presence of smoke particles, the system will go into alarm. The use of dual light frequencies (IR & UV) in an open-path device enables OSID to discriminate between real smoke and other objects, including insects, steam, condensation and dust, thus drastically reducing false alarms.
