Carrier / EMS CPD Programme

RSPL and Carrier / EMS will be hosting a CPD (Continuing Professional Development) Programme on Wednesday the 22nd of March.

This programme has 5 modules and aims to inform and educate attendees on various methods of fire detection, the EN54-25 standard, as well as the benefits of wireless fire detection.

This programme will benefit fire professionals of all experience levels. During each module, the presenter will determine the skill level of the audience and fine tune the presentation accordingly.

The training modules for this programme are:

1. Understanding wireless fire detection and the EN54-25 standard

A look at the growth of wireless fire detection systems, how they work, how they are deployed, the standards that are in place, and how EN54-25 has driven changes. We will explore applications for wireless and hybrid, and how to add to existing systems. We will also look at networks for larger, more complex buildings.

2. Wireless fire detection for any system

The increasing use of wireless fire detection, as a primary choice, has led to the development of wireless gateways which can be used to extend existing systems. These can be used on almost any system, conventional or addressable (regardless of protocol). Using wireless technology, systems can be extended quickly, without disruption, at a much lower cost. We explore the range of options and look at real world examples.

3. What is Aspirating Smoke Detection?

An introduction to Aspirating Smoke Detection (ASD) which is becoming more popular for areas where early detection is a prerequisite. How does ASD work, where can it be used and what technology is available? We look at the way ASD discriminates between dust and smoke and its reliability which can almost eradicate unwanted alarms. We also discuss how to integrate ASD into other systems for site wide coverage.

4. What is Linear Heat Detection? – An alternative route for fire detection

Linear Heat Detection (LHD) has been available for many years, but to many it remains an unknown or misunderstood technology. We look at the various options including digital and analogue, and how LHD can be used effectively in challenging environments. These environments include car parks, tunnels, warehousing, and many other areas where more traditional solutions are difficult to install and/or maintain.

5. Why use Beam Detection? – How it can be used and understanding the benefits

Beam detection can be used effectively in many applications. We look at the products available, the technologies employed, the design parameters, and the types of beam detection you may want to deploy. We explore the areas where beam detection can be used more effectively than point detection and the cost savings it can provide.
