Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus (VESDA)
VESDA very early warning aspirating smoke detection solutions with continuous air sampling provide the earliest possible warning of an impending fire hazard. VESDA aspirating smoke detectors buy the critical time needed to investigate an alarm and initiate an appropriate response to prevent injury, property damage or business disruption. VESDA detectors have multi-level warnings and a wide range of sensitivity that does not degrade or change over time, so even minute levels of smoke can be detected before a fire has time to escalate.
This diagram shows the progression of a fire over time. Note that the incipient stage of a fire provides the widest window of opportunity to detect and control the spread. VESDA detectors can be configured to generate multiple alarms within the incipient stage. They also can be configured to generate as additional alarms(Fire2) in the advanced stages of a fire. This feature is unique to VESDA and takes advantage of its wide sensitivity range that enables one detector to monitor the entire progression of a fire.
