PYROVIEW FDS – Early Fire Detection

PYROVIEW FDS – Early Fire Detection System with infrared cameras and software

PYROVIEW FDS – That is the proven full automatic DIAS infrared system for the early fire detection. It is used for the detection of hot spots or smoldering fires when paper, waste and combustible materials in closed bunkers and in open areas is stored. Reliable installations for the detection and control of unwanted fires are required here in particular. By spontaneous combustion of the stored materials or by contamination of hot materials fire can develop that bears a high risk for man and environment. Insurance providers recommend therefor the use of infrared cameras for monitoring.

Raise an alarm before it starts burning

When exceeding preset temperature threshold values in the Regions Of Interest (ROI) of the current thermal image the corresponding thermal imaging software PYROSOFT FDS signalizes the alarm status and files the appropriate measurement data. In the case of a fire areas with temperature exceedances are marked red. In this way the operator can recognize the fire immediately and start fire fighting measures. Alarms and system states can be displayed on a PC monitor and the operator panel of the system that can be connected directly to the coordination center of the fire brigade. Own water cannons can also be integrated into the system solutions and so they can be aimed to the fire.

Components of the early fire detection system

The basic element of our IR system is at least one PYROVIEW infrared camera on a pan-tilt-head. Alternatively, the infrared camera can be equipped with an extreme wide-angle lens including a software module for image restitution. Freely definable sectors of the area to be monitored can be selected automatically with the infrared camera. The IR camera measures continuously the temperature distribution on different positions. Here is an overview of the components of the early fire detection system:

  • Infrared camera PYROVIEW 380L or 640L
  • Weather-proof housing
  • Pan-tilt-head
  • Reference radiator
  • Power supply/USV
  • I/O system
  • Touch-PC
  • Thermal imaging software PYROSOFT FDS
