Offering the latest in compact marine detection and control panel, Kidde Australia can provide a solution specifically designed for commercial and recreational boats and other small to medium applications protected by Stat-X aerosol suppression systems.
Developed and manufactured by Kidde in Australia to meet the requirements of the demanding marine environment, the Marine Vessel (MV) panels have a comprehensive feature set. Configurable and flexible to meet individual customer or equipment requirements, the Kidde Marine solution is definitely worth looking at. Key features of the panel include the support of automatic fire detection and alarm functionality; visual indications of system status, alarms and faults and incorporates a manual discharge switch to allow manual operation of the suppression system. All within a single IP65 rated metal enclosure.
The panels are especially suited to Stat-X aerosol suppression systems and have been designed to meet the requirements of the National Standard for Commercial Vessels. Automatic discharge of fire suppression systems is not permitted on commercial vessels and the MV panel has been designed to comply with this requirement. The MV panel has also been subjected to component testing as specified in Australian Standard AS5062.
Compared to traditional pressurised gas or chemical agent piped systems, Stat-X advanced technology is economical to install and own, with no special storage space or distribution piping required, and each Stat-X generator has a 10-year life from date of manufacture.
