Rack Mounted Fire Prevention Systems

FirePASS FOR SERVER CABINETS

FirePASS® is the only manufacturer of 19” Rack Mounted Fire Prevention Systems in the world.

Protect your valuable data & hardware components from fire risk, with a Fire Prevention Generator from FirePASS®. Using a build-in compressor or supplied with compressed air, these units create a low oxygen (hypoxic) atmosphere within internally cooled* server cabinets, making fire and the ignition of substances within the cabinet impossible.

Features

  • Hypoxic air, oxygen control. Between 13% – 15% oxygen(lower if requested)
  • Temperature and Humidity monitoring
  • MODBUS RTU (RS485) Interface
  • Potential free alarm contact output
  • Optional smoke detection and alarm
  • Display with Green/Red status backlight

FirePASS FP-123

This is our smallest product which is typically used for small archives, server rooms of small and midsize companies etc.

The parallel use of several generators allows scalability and redundancy.

The FP-123 contains no electronics and may be used in a simple mode as a “work-horse”. This means it operates constantly producing hypoxic air with 15% O2. Alternatively it may be operated with an optional O2-sensor (see picture) and a switching unit.

The latter is joint up in the circuit and controls the effective O2-level in the prevented room by switching the generator on and off depending on the signal given by the O2-sensor unit.

Important to remember: Any air-conditioning system being used in the area protected with a FirePASS® System must be a split system type (recirculation).

The FirePASS® FP-123 self-contained unit employs one oil-free compressor and is capable of serving room volumes up to 50 m3 subject to leakage rate. For the total volume of 50 m3 it would take initially about 13 hours to bring the whole area to a permanent “safe” condition of 16% of oxygen, and around 24 hours to bring it to 15.5% (based on 20% leakage).

The FP-123 without control unit will work constantly. The achieved level of oxygen in the prevented room will then depend on the leakage of the room and will stay at slightly above 15%.

If the FP-123 is equipped with the optional O2-sensor and the switching unit it will switch off automatically when the desired O2-percentage is achieved (e.g. 15.4%) and will start again when the oxygen level exceeds the desired maximum level (e.g. 15.8%) thus maintaining the environmental oxygen content at around 15.5 % constantly and minimizing energy consumption at the same time.

Technical data:

– Capacity: 120 Nl/min airflow @ 15% O2 and @ 20 degree Celsius

– Cabinet: Metal case

– Dimensions: 55 x 27 x 58 cm (H x W x D)

– Weight: 56lbs /25kg

– Power consumption: 500 W

– Voltage: 230VAC/50 Hz (other voltages on request)

The ambient room air temperature should not exceed 30 degree Celsius.

The unit should be protected from excessive moisture and dust and must be placed in a way that it receives adequate ventilation to avoid overheating of the compressor.

Optional oxygen monitoring and switching unit
FirePASS can provide a high quality dedicated stand-alone continuous oxygen monitoring system for the detection of oxygen content specifically in hypoxic environments. The O2 system consists of a digital display sensor head and proprietary zirconium oxide sensor cell for the detection of O2 with a range of 0-25%. It also has dual level visual alarm indicators, user selectable dual-level concentration alarms and relay contacts, and system fault relay.

The O2 monitor relays are used to activate local horns and strobes and, with built-in hysteresis, used for controlling the switching unit. Sensor head electronics is housed in a Nema 4X wall mounted housing that is to be installed in the protected room. The monitor is 24VDC powered.

The O2 sensor cell has a life of 5-8 years minimum.

The switching unit that is controlled by the relay-switched alarm signal from the oxygen monitor for “high” and “low” oxygen levels. It has 4 switched power connectors to connect up to 4 FP-123 PSA Generators.

FirePass SCU3x / SCU2x

The self-contained FirePASS SCU3x Hypoxic Air Generator is typically used for protecting small rooms such as archives, server rooms and similar, for volumes of up to 300m3 or more, depending on room leakage.
The SCU3x system offers the same sophisticated features that are included in all FirePASS self- contained systems, including three compressors, air quality and moisture management, automatic heat and a touch screen control panel.
The SCU3x produces a controlled oxygen-reduced air environment, monitored by advanced oxygen analysers that measure the effective O2-level in the protected area. This enables the control unit to maintain a stable hypoxic atmosphere by switching the SCU3x on and off, depending on the defined O2-level, while also providing energy savings.

FirePass Control Panels

237-firepass-control-panels-571

The control unit has a user-friendly touch screen for easy programming and settings, protected by passwords to provide various levels of security. The touch screen will be installed in the generator metal cabinet jointly with the control unit. It may be optionally installed in a separate small metal cabinet and located remotely. The control unit shows and tracks all alarms and warnings and stores the system performance data over a period of time of more than one year, including the regularly tracked O2-levels measured by the oxygen monitoring units. The data can be written to a USB drive and transmitted to a computer for analysis. See below example of the main screen of the control unit touch panel interface. Additional functionalities can be supplied upon request.
The control unit may be enabled to communicate with a building management system installed on site by Modbus TCPIP protocol via standard Ethernet cable. Alternatively, the system can be upgraded to be monitored and controlled from any PC via a web- browser based interface. The control unit will be equipped with a UPS (hold-time 24 hours) that supplies the control unit and the touch panel as well as the oxygen monitors and the BMS interface. This will keep all monitoring and alarming functionalities working even in the event of mains power failure.
