If you are seeking professionally installed “Fire Alarm Systems”  then you have found the right place.  Here at Current Technologies Ltd. we offer a full selection of fire alarm system for commercial and industrial buildings of virtually any size.

What is a Fire Alarm System?

A typical fire alarm system has numerous initiating devices divided among separate zones – each connected via an initiating device circuit to a central control panel. The control panel performs supervisory functions over the initiating devices, indicating appliances, all associated field wiring, telephone ties, and its own internal wiring and circuit cards.

What is the main component of a fire alarm system?

The Fire Alarm Control Panel (FACP). The FACP should be located where it can be responded to as necessary either around the clock or during operating hours. This can be at building security headquarters, adjacent to a telephone switchboard or in a maintenance office – whichever location offers maximum coverage. It should also be positioned in a fairly central location because if the system goes into alarm, a person needs to be able to race to the location and verify fire status before the alarm is silenced.

Professional Lighting Upgrades and Installation

Energy-efficient lighting is generally considered the easiest, most profitable investment compared to other energy-saving building systems. Lighting upgrades in commercial and institutional facilities generate an average project payback period of a little more than 2 years, with a 45% return on investment.

One way to reduce the cost of operating an older lighting system is to replace it with a newer, more efficient system. Another way is to upgrade existing, obsolete lighting systems with energy efficient lamps, ballasts, fixtures and controls- staples in new buildings because of energy codes. Both strategies are designed to help maintenance and engineering managers lower energy use and save on utility costs.

We specialize in commercial, industrial and retail lighting installations, including maintenance and repair of these systems. We have a great team that has the experience and knowledge to get the job done right.

A fire alarm system operates in one of three (or more) states: normal, alarm, and trouble. The state is reported at all times on the alphanumeric display. If the system goes into alarm, the indicating appliances throughout the building go off. These could be very loud horns for some occupancies, or softer chimes in others, such as a nursing home.

The control panel monitors the initiating device circuits at all times for shorts and open wiring by means of the applied DC voltage. The initiating devices are normally open. In the event of a fire they become conductive at close to zero ohms. How, then, is it possible for the control panel to differentiate between a non-alarm state and an open wiring fault? This is accomplished by means of an end-of-line resistor.

The control panel also monitors the functionality of its own wiring and zone cards, and trouble is reported in the display.

Another capability of the fire alarm system is to call out in case of alarm. Two dedicated phone lines are connected, and the system performs test calls periodically in accordance with programmed instructions. If either phone line won’t connect, the system goes into the trouble state, so repairs can be made.

The essence of a fire alarm system, as opposed to individual smoke detectors, even if they are wired to indicate in concert, is that it is supervised from a central location. The whole notion of supervision is critical. It does not mean that a person sits at the console and watches it at all times. What it means is that a supervisory voltage is applied to all circuitry, and current flow is monitored electronically to verify that equipment and wiring are intact.

If the system goes into alarm and won’t silence due to touchpad malfunction, for example, it can be disarmed after the zone is checked for fire by cutting off the power. First, unhook one side of the battery array, then unhook the black-white-green incoming power connector. If a fire alarm system is disabled, maintenance and security personnel should initiate fire patrols throughout the building. The telephone monitoring agency should be informed, and the insurance company contacted to verify that coverage is not voided.
