Conventional fire detection systems offer a low cost approach to quality fire protection needs. These “zoned” type systems are available from most equipment manufacturers for small to medium applications. A field device alerts the control unit to indicate that a section of the facility being protected is in an alarm or fault condition. The control panel processes this information and provides subsequent alarm and control outputs. The Kidde AEGIS and Fireboy Elite CPM control panels are examples of full feature, conventional zone type panels. Some models also provide capability for release of fire suppression agent in a local protected area.
