Cerberus & Siemens

Siemens has been involved in fire alarm and extinguishing systems for over 160 years. Cerberus invented the automatic smoke detector in 1941; we have been doing reliable smoke detection longer than anybody else and are a trendsetter in detection technology. We employ over 450 people in R&D and have experience of over 60 million detectors installed around the world. Our products are reliable and will always be manufactured and supported for over 20 years. They will always be backward and forward compatible with whatever technology we bring out in the future, ensuring the customers’ investment is well protected for the long term.

Siemens Equipment Range

Digital Addressable Systems

This type of system improves collective systems by using loop wiring, device isolators and software programming to increase reliability and provide individual identification of devices in alarm, fault or detector status. In addition to the ‘normal’, ‘fire’ or ‘fault’ status, the system is capable of identifying detectors that require maintenance and the status of every unit. This enables optimum service intervals and reduces periodic checks.

Siemens Cerberus PRO™ Fire Detection System

Siemens Cerberus PRO™ is a unique fire detection system consisting of panels ranging from simple 1 loop to powerful 28 loops to meet all applications from the same system. It can be networked to provide a seamless system with up to 64 panels - all certified to EN54-13. It provides normal detectors for standard applications and ASA smoke detectors for the most demanding of environments. With ASAtechnology™ (Advanced Signal Analysis) reliable smoke detection can now be achieved where previously only heat detectors would be suitable.

Siemens Cerberus PRO™ Equipment Range

Includes FC720 Control Panels, neural ASA fire detectors, wide spectrum smoke detectors, linear smoke detectors, heat detectors, infrared flame detectors, aspirating smoke detectors and SWING wireless detection.

Voice Evacuation Systems

The Siemens E100 VA System is a digital voice actuated alarm and evacuation system, available as a stand-alone model or fully networked and integrated to the fire alarm system. European standards recognise that voice evacuation is an integral part of fire detection and needs to be treated with the same high standards.

E100 complies fully with EN60849: electro-acoustical emergency warning systems and EN54-16 components for voice-actuated alarms in fire alarm systems, voice-actuated alarm centres.

Graphical Management Package

Siemens MM8000 is a professional danger management and monitoring system for integrating security and safety systems, providing event history and analytical reports. It can be configured to provide text-only display of the entire subsystems or full graphical representation of protected areas.

Current Fire Detection Standards

All components of the Cerberus PRO System fully comply and are certified by VdS or LPCB for CPR (Construction Product Regulation) introduced from 1st July 2013.

ASA™ Smoke Detectors Application Guide

High Suppression PS8

Specifically developed for dance floors in discotheques, live venues and theatres. Requires a relatively small change in temperature of 8K in addition to an alarm signal from the optical chamber to create an alarm. Provides a much faster response than switching to pure thermal detection. Enhanced safety at critical times where visibility is reduced and large numbers of people are in attendance. Complies with the norm EN54-5.

Suppression PS5

Highly robust behaviour, therefore very suitable for applications with deceptive phenomena such as steam, heavy cigarette smoke or exhaust gases. At the same time the detector reacts with the ASA parameter set quickly and reliably in case of a real fire due to the dynamic influencing of the parameters. Complies with the norms EN54-5 and EN54-7. For use in kitchens, production areas with operational related deceptive phenomena.

Supression CO PS12

Highly robust behaviour, therefore very suitable for applications with deceptive phenomena such as steam, heavy cigarette smoke or exhaust gases. At the same time the detector reacts with the ASA parameter set quickly and reliably in case of a real fire due to the dynamic influencing of the parameters. Sensitivity is influenced by the CO concentration. Separate CO alarming and control for the detection of unhealthy or dangerous carbon monoxide build up. Complies with the norms EN54-5 and EN54-7. For use in production areas with operational related deceptive phenomena.

High Compensation PS7

Identical to the robust setting except the drift compensation is extended. Especially suited for rooms in which a lot of dust and other deposits are expected to build up over a period of time, such as paper mills, carpenters workshops, textile production and recycling plants. Complies with the norms EN54-5 and EN54-7.

Robust PS2

Robust behaviour, therefore very suitable for applications with deceptive phenomena such as cigarette smoke, dust and exhaust gases. At the same time the detector reacts with the ASA parameter set quickly and reliably in case of a real fire due to the dynamic influencing of the parameters. Compared to PS5 this set may be used to improve detection speed on higher ceilings. Complies with the norms EN54-5 and EN54-7. For use in event locations, conference rooms, smoking rooms, gastronomy, industry production and underground garages.

Balanced PS4

For use in normal environments. Balanced response characteristic, sensitive in the case of fire, robust with deceptive phenomena. Due to its distinct dynamic, the detector reacts quickly to open fires and smoldering fires according to the definitions of EN54. The ASA parameter set reacts very robustly to deceptive phenomena such as cigarette smoke or small amounts of steam. Often used when the system is in unmanned mode e.g. at night. Complies with the norms EN54-5 and EN54-7. For use in open plan offices, hallways, hotel rooms, out of hours use in harsh environments.

Balanced CO PS10

Using the criteria smoke, heat and CO the device is more sensitive to fires creating CO than PS4 without the CO signal. This parameter set is robust with deceptive phenomena, such as cigarette smoke or small amounts of steam. It also offers early alarming in the event of fires generating a large amount of CO, such as mattress fires. Complies with the norms EN54-5 and EN54-7. Same applications as with PS4 but with higher robustness against deceptive phenomena.

Fast Response PS6

This parameter set reacts in a fast and highly sensitive manner. It is especially suited for rooms without deceptive phenomena where the priority is on detecting fire as early as possible and is an excellent replacement for ionisation detectors. For use in high ceilinged rooms, storage rooms, warehouses with highly flammable material, IT rooms, control of extinguishing systems. Complies with the norms EN54-5 and EN54-7.

High Sensitive Fast PS9

This parameter set allows for the fastest possible detection for both open and smouldering fires. It is intended for use in clean applications with no deceptive phenomena such as hospital rooms, museums, operating rooms, high ceilinged rooms where high sensitive detection is of great importance. Complies with the norms EN54-5 and EN54-7.
