Gas detectors included in the NFPA 72-2010 standard for fire-alarm systems

Minneapolis, USA -- The Eagle Quantum Premier (EQP) Safety System from Detector Electronics Corporation (Det-Tronics) has earned certification to NFPA 72: 2010 (http://safety.det-tronics.com). FM Approvals, the nationally recognized testing laboratory, performed the system evaluation and certification. Det-Tronics is a business of UTC Fire & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).

Suited for industrial applications requiring a hazardous location rated protection system, the EQP System provides flame and/or gas detection, alarm signaling, notification, extinguishing agent release, and/or deluge operation. Components are integrated on a fault-tolerant digital communication network.

“NFPA 72: 2010 sets standards for gas detectors that are used in executive actions, such as initiating automatic or manual protective procedures,” says Bill Crosley, Det-Tronics Market Development Manager. “Certification means the Det-Tronics gas detectors on the EQP network fully meet the applicable requirements of NFPA 72: 2010 for use in fire alarm systems.”

The new certification joins the list of others previously obtained for the EQP System:

  • FM/CSA/ATEX/CE
  • BRE/Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) approval to EN54 (fire alarm system/detection) and EN12094 (extinguishing)
  • US Coast Guard approved to 46 CFR 161.002
  • Lloyds Register Type approved to 'Test Specification Number 1'
  • Hazardous location certification for field devices, I/O modules, and controller
