FIKE VESDA Detection

When high value assets, equipment or irreplaceable items are at stake, early warning of a smoke or fire problem, is essential. Our air sampling or air monitoring equipment actively pulls in room air to a special chamber where it can detect the presence of particles that are created in the very early stages of combustion, even before smoke is visible. That provides for the most important element necessary to minimize smoke damage or prevent fire loss - TIME. FIKE partners with VESDA to provide the industry's most trusted line of products for air sampling early warning systems.

Specific air sampling fire detection systems:

Air Monitoring Equipment - Detector Module


The LaserPLUS detector provides a highly sensitive, highly reliable form of aspirating or air monitoring detection. It detects fire at the earliest possible stage and reliably measures very low to extremely high concentrations of smoke. The Cheetah fire suppression control panel fire suppression control panel can be configured to communicate directly with one or more LaserPLUS detectors via a bi-directional, fully supervised communication with a High Level Interface (HLI). This configuration provides an integrated approach to system operation by providing each LaserPLUS air sampling detector the same functionality as a Cheetah photo, ion, or heat detector. And the LaserPLUS detector is UL, FM, and ULC Approved.

Additional features of the air monitoring Detector Module include:

  • Wide Sensitivity Range
  • Laser-Based Light Source
  • Four Configurable Alarm Levels
  • Purpose-Built Aspirator
  • Four In-line Inlet Pipes
  • Flow Sensor for Each Pipe Inlet
  • Wide Range DC Power
  • Low Cost Maintenance
  • Dual Stage Filter
  • Easy Access to Filter Cartridge
  • Seven Software-Configurable Relays
  • Recessed Mounting
  • Multiple Exhausts

Display Module


The air sampling Display Module provides a real-time indication of the status of a VESDA LaserPLUS Detector. This audio / visual impact module includes a 20-segment vertical bar graph, a two-digit numerical display, an audible sounder, and clear alarm and fault indicators. For functionality in early warning fire detection, this unit has four pushbuttons to control the detector and mode of the display.

Additional features of the air monitoring Display Module include:

  • Four Alarm Levels (Alert, Action, Fire 1, Fire 2)
  • 20-segment Vertical Bar Graph
  • Alarm Threshold Indicators (Alert, Action, Fire 1)
  • Audio and Visual Indication
  • Alarm Indicators
  • Informative Fault Indicators
  • Multi-mode Numeric Display (defaults to smoke obscuration)
  • Acknowledged Push Button Presses
  • Multiple Language Support
  • Adressable to any Detector

Programmer Module


The Programmer Module allows modification of the settings of a VESDA LaserPLUS air sampling system. Using an intuitive menu system, commissioning and maintenance of the air monitoring equipment becomes quite convenient and efficient. The programmer module is the access tool to the individual parameters on the LaserPLUS detectors / displays while also facilitating the configuration and maintenance of many detectors connected by VESDAnet.

Additional features of the air monitoring Programmer Module include:

  • Intuitive Menu System
  • Backlit LCD Screen
  • Multiple Language Support
  • Eight Large, Tactile Buttons
  • Password Security
  • Choice of Mounting
