In addition, the control panel was certified in a distributed configuration, meaning with remote control units (up to 16) in relation to the main control panel, capable of reducing the installation load of the systems. This allowed the control system to be closer to the field devices, thus limiting the costs associated with cable installation.
In this way, the EXFIRE360 system went beyond the concept of a network system, becoming a full-fledged distributed logic system. Responding to market demand, the EXFIRE360 system was made compliant with all major options and requirements of EN 54/EN 12094-1 standards, allowing it to be associated with the command of a wide range of extinguishing systems, and programmable with a wide range of functions. Ultimately, certification according to the harmonized standards of the ATEX Directive made it possible to use the control panel in gas detection systems, completing the range of EN 60079-2-1 approvals.
Future developments of this product will focus on further scalability, increasing performance and power supply capabilities, as well as the development of solutions dedicated to remote control, supervision, and obtaining additional international certifications.
