Silent Knight by Honeywell of Northford, Conn., introduces its fire alarm aspiration sensing technology (FAAST) detector from System Sensor.

The detector draws air samples into its sensor through a pipe network. Its exclusive dual source sensing technology uses a highly sensitive blue LED to sense smoke, while an infrared laser distinguishes other airborne particulates from smoke. A series of complex algorithms are then used to interpret signals from both sources, to warn of smoke up to 60 minutes prior to combustion while preventing nuisance alarms and the false discharge of connected suppression systems.
