VESDA detectors are very early smoke detection apparatus that offer the earliest possible warning of a potential fire.
With hundreds of thousands installed globally, the VESDA brand name has become synonymous with high performance and is the product chosen by many when reliable performance is crucial.
VESDA detectors work by continually drawing air through a network of pipes via a high efficiency aspirator. A sample of this air is passed through a dual stage filter into a laser detection chamber. A highly sensitive receiver system counts the particles of smoke and carries out a set of pre-programmed actions at user selectable contamination levels.
The VESDA product range incorporates various detectors to suite many applications, environments, room sizes and budgets. Each different detector is capable of communicating the information detected to a fire alarm control panel, software management system or a building management system through relays or a High Level Interface connected to the proprietary VesdaNET network.
ICS provide sales and support for the entire VESDA range including accessories, power supplies, networking and pipework. Further information on each product can be found by using the menus above.
Introducing VESDA VLQ
The LaserQuantum VLQ detector is a cost-effective Aspirated Smoke Detection (ASD / HSSD) solution that meets the unique needs of numerous small area applications of up to 100 m2 (1,000 ft2).
Small data rooms are becoming increasingly common within small to medium businesses. Data loss from fire could have catastrophic results. Replacing standard addressable point smoke detectors with the Xtralis Vesda VLQ improves smoke detection reliability, minimises risks and provides very early warning of potential fire situations.
The Vesda VLQ detector is suitable for high sensitivity detection within small data rooms / comms rooms. It is the quickest and easiest way of providing a highly competitive but far superior aspirating smoke detection solution.
Our product support area has undergone a number of changes providing a simpler, cleaner way of downloading the most relevant information you need.
We have updated the Vesda product manuals, detector data sheets, Vesda application guides and included the VSC programming & Aspire design software.
