Automist Smartscan Hydra

Automist Smartscan

Multi Head Water Mist System.

It’s here! The new intelligent multi-head Automist Smartscan Hydra water mist system.

When the Plumis multi-sensor wireless detector senses a fire in the building it triggers all the linked spray heads and they will start to scan their surround area. They measure the temperature in the room with their infrared sensors looking for high temperature readings indicating the source of the fire.

Once a certain temperature is reached the system knows it has located the fire. Readings from all heads are automatically compared to see which head has the best view of the fire then the best placed head will lock onto to fire source.

The high pressure pump is then activated driving mains water supply  through the head thus directing a dense stream of water mist straight into the source of the fire.
