Aspiration Alarm System

SPS represents Xtralis Aspirating Smoke Detection (ASD) system. Xtralis is a global leader and pioneer in life safety. Xtralis invented VESDA very early warning aspirating smoke detection (ASD), the world’s leading ASD brand. Customers worldwide rely on VESDA when business continuity is imperative, environments are challenging, and time is required to ensure safe and orderly evacuation.

VESDA ASD systems also can be equipped with modules to detect hazardous / combustible gases to extend their value beyond smoke detection to include gas detection and environmental monitoring.


VESDA detectors have multi-level warnings and a wide range of sensitivity that does not degrade or change over time, so even minute levels of smoke can be detected before a fire has time to escalate. In addition, VESDA systems are manufactured using targeted Six Sigma techniques and ISO 9000 standards and have been certified by regulatory bodies worldwide.

VESDA systems can be seamlessly equipped to actively detect gas leaks and continuously monitor air quality. An ECO gas detector can be attached to a large-bore ASD pipe network to detect hazardous/combustible gases that pose unseen threats. For VESDA VEA, XCL gas detectors added to the micro-bore tubes for similar capability. Both of these gas detection solutions require no construction or additional piping and do not involve installing electrical conduit.
