DESCRIPTION:  The AAE FPS Appliance is an “Autonomous” Fire Protection System Appliance that provides smoke detection and fire suppression for containers, rooms, cabinets, stations, or compartments that are not monitored.  The Appliance is not mechanically or electrically connected to, or dependent on, any other system.  The Appliance detects smoke and discharges an aerosol agent that completely floods the containment area. The amount of aerosol can be sized to fit any compartment.  The Appliance can send signals to a separate monitoring station.  The Appliance can receive signals from other sequential FPS systems.  It is made of a rugged construction and has a long service life.

OPERATION:    The FPS Appliance is equipped with two “Single Channel” smoke detectors.  One detector provides the “A” loop; and the other detector provides the “B” loop.  Each detector features one bi-colored LED for indication of status.  In a normal standby condition, the LED flashes “Green every 3 seconds.  When the detector senses that its sensitivity has drifted outside the UL listed sensitivity window, the LED will “flash Red every 3 seconds.  When the detector senses smoke and goes into alarm, the status LED “latches solid on RED”.  An alarm is indicated when “both” detector channels sense smoke.  When an alarm is indicated by the detectors, a signal is sent to the FPS Appliance’s Control Panel.  The Control Panel immediately (less than 5 seconds) discharges each of its aerosol containers.  The total amount of aerosol agent completely floods the area to be protected.

Testing has shown conclusively that:

  • The AAE FPS Appliance’s smoke detectors will respond “within 60 seconds of initiation of a small amount of smoke as described in U.S. FAA Advisory Circulars AC 25-9A and in AC 25-22, Paragraph 39 (§25.858)”.
  • Discharge of the aerosol from the Appliance’s extinguishers occurs in less 5 seconds after detection.
  • Discharge of the aerosol from the Appliance’s extinguishers will completely flood the containment area within 60 seconds.
  • Discharge of the aerosol from the Appliance’s extinguishers will not cause structural damage to surrounding structures.
  • The AAE FPS Appliance’s Suppression System will perform it’s intended function on “a realistic fire threat under realistic environmental conditions”.
