When it comes to potential fire situations onboard your houseboat, being able to efficiently pinpoint the source enables quicker response times. The new Triton 8 Fire Alarm Panel from Sea-Fire is an addressable system enabling up to 256 detectors or manual call points. It offers a highly flexible configuration that can report not only smoke or fire, but potential hazards such as short circuits.

The Triton 8 bears DNV Type approval, Wheelmark certification and ABS Design approval for use on Class vessels. Each of the system's 8 loops has 32 configurable zones, creating the 256 monitoring points. This addressable system is superior to traditional two-wire, zone-based alarm panels, which only indicate the general area of a fire event. It also reduces the amount of installation wiring needed and offers flexibility in the number of detectors/call points in a specific area onboard.

The Triton 8 not only detects changes that indicate fire, but identifies failures that can lead to fire such as insulation faults, short circuits or loop cable breakage. It also provides measurement of any detectors that might malfunction due to clogging. Should the control panel's main 24 VDC power supply be lost, an automatic switchover to backup battery power takes place, which reverses once power is restored.

Sea-Fire offers full engineering support and design services for its fire detection and fire suppression systems. The company makes automatic and manual/automatic fire suppression systems for areas from 25 to 17,500 cubic feet. It also carries sensors, control and display panels, engine shutdown systems and monitoring devices. (800-445-7680/www.sea-fire.com)
