FGS1300 Fire & Gas Alarm & Control System


Download data sheet

aeSolutions’ newest offering for fire and gas alarm and control solutions for the industrial market has arrived. The FGS1300 was developed to provide fire and gas monitoring, and suppression control for modules in remote locations that have less than 40 I/O.  It is designed to be installed in both general area, or as an option, Class 1 Div 2 groups B-D, temp code T3 zones areas.

A critical component of the FGS 1300 is an FM-approved secondary power supply system consisting of a charger panel and an associated self-contained battery system. To support system design, aeSolutions has developed an FM-approved battery sizing tool which confirms the battery system design based on the specific requirements of each application.

By using the same hardware / software platform as the Siemens Simatic PCS7 series, the FGS 1300 can be integrated into the entire plant system solution. It offers the advantages of common HMIs, spare parts, training, engineering / configuration tools, maintenance, and procedures to produce a dramatic saving in both installed cost as well as lifecycle costs.

Fire System Monitoring & Control

The FGS 1300 has been FM-approved (pending) to be in conformance with the requirements of NFPA 72 for fire alarming and mitigation control.

Gas Monitoring and Control

The FGS 1300 has also been FM-approved to be in conformance with FM Approval’s Combustible Gas Standard 6320, Toxic Gas Detection Standard 6340 and ANSI/ISA 12.13.01 Performance Requirements for Combustible Gas Detectors standard.

Other members of the Life Safety Systems family of products have been developed by aeSolutions to bring highly reliable and cost-effective SIS solutions to market for a wide variety of fired equipment Safety Instrumented – Burner Management System applications.
