Exhibiting on Stand 5/B125 at the Fire Safety Event, Siemens Smart Infrastructure will be focusing on the latest developments in its fire detection and alarm solutions.

Recently launched is a new version of ‘Fire Manager’, Siemens dedicated web-based SaaS (Software as a Service) fire app that offers service providers and fire safety managers the capability to have all fire safety sites in one view. The status of buildings can be easily monitored, with more information available by clicking on a site of interest via a fully encrypted connection that ensures the safety of the data.

The move is part of the ongoing development of Siemens Building X, a digital building platform that supports customers in digitalising, managing, and optimising their building operations (Energy, HVAC, Security and Safety). It enables remote monitoring and intervention, real-time notification, and efficient and predictive maintenance. 

Fire Manager offers a range of benefits, including a status overview of a site/sites, both live and historical events, customisable notification via SMS and/or email, and data that assists with maintenance and planning. Included in the data that Fire Manager provides from a fire safety system is the potential for disturbance free testing (DFT), which allows detectors to be tested automatically, with the results recorded in the portal. 

Alongside Fire Manager, which automatically transmits notifications of the fire system status to service providers, notifications can also be sent to their customers by Fire Connect, a native iOS and Android app.

Also new from Siemens is ASD+, a new generation of aspirating smoke detection which provides further benefits. It features two new detectors – FDA261 and FDA262 – which are specifically designed to provide solutions for larger and more complex projects. A single device can cover an impressive area of up to 6,700 m2 – currently the largest coverage area available on the market.  Even for Class A installations with the highest sensitivity requirements, up to 2,000 m2 of detection coverage is feasible with a single ASD+ detector.

The modular design enables easy replacement of both the detection chamber and the aspirator, all without the need to exchange the entire detector unit, not only extending the product’s lifetime but also reducing its environmental footprint.

The new ASD+ app ensures fast and easy digital commissioning in a process which is highly automated and intuitive through a QR-code based approach, reducing commissioning costs by up to 20%. The detection performance of the previous detectors has been enhanced in ASD+ through optics designed for high sensitivity, with optimisation to perform in harsh dirty environments through improved signal processing which differentiates between smoke and dust.
