Permalevel® Multiplex

Permalevel Multiplex is the first system worldwide that is capable of monitoring the liquid level of critical fire suppression cylinder systems on a constant basis. It gives a facility total visibility on the real-time status of all their critical fire systems.

Modern fire suppression systems have transformed industry safety across all sectors. However, the development of their servicing and monitoring equipment has remained stagnant, with many very advanced systems relying totally on annual inspections , or on unreliable mechanical pressure gauges. These methods leave the status of fire suppression systems completely vulnerable between annual checks.

Coltraco are raising awareness that annual certification checks on a fire system cannot cater for the need to monitor its contents for the rest of the year.

The Permalevel MultiplexTM is designed to ensure that fire suppression systems are always fully operational and that no accidental discharge has occurred, which could affect the effectiveness of the overall fire protection system in the event that it is required for use.

The Permalevel® Multiplex is the fixed level monitoring system, mainly used for fixed fire suppression cylinder level inspection.

The Permalevel® Multiplex provides the ability to constantly monitor the liquid level of fire suppression agent in any fire suppression systems. This allows any facility to significantly enhance their ability to ensure critical infrastructure and people are protected against the risk of fire.

Whilst annual servicing is crucial to ensure systems are working, they do not guard against the risk of discharge, from the day after the service. This means a discharge could go unnoticed for many months and thus risk the system not functioning properly in the event of a fire.

With full communication capabilities allowing for remote, SMS, relay or local alarm options, the Permalevel Multiplex® allows for complete protection with any critical facility.

Features of Permalevel Multiplex

MULTIPLE ALARM OPTIONS: a Master Alarm output. The multiplex has an RS232/485 output allowing communication with a central monitoring system or PC

STATUS OF EACH CHANNEL SHOWN BY LEDs: A set of green and red LED lights indicate the status of each cylinder.

TEXT/EMAIL ALERTS: Provide an instantaneous and convenient form of data communication.

UNINTERRUPTABLE POWER SUPPLY: Backup system provides power in the event of mains power failure.

DATALOGGING ABILITY: The software keeps logs of the system activity, errors and alarm trigger on a monthly basis.

STRONG MAGNETS: Hold the sensors in place with additional space for adhesive or a strap to ensure sensors are not accidentally removed. SENSORS: Each monitoring point has its own dedicated sensor which is connected to the cylinder it is monitoring.

REMOTE REAL-TIME MONITORING SCREEN: Displays information about the current status of the cylinders, and when last contact was made.

COMPATIBLE WITH MULTIPLE CYLINDER TYPES: Each channel can be individually tuned, therefore each cylinder can be different from the last in size, weight, pressure and agent type.

 

Advantages of Permalevel Multiplex

Guaranteed systems operations – no accidental discharge from cylinders minimises risk of fire to ensure business continuity

24/7 remote access to system status – enables the operator to monitor each cylinder point in real time

Bespoke and reliable software – also designed to be user friendly so that the on-site maintenance team can quickly identify and rectify any issues

Monitors a wide range of verifiable agents – for example, FM200TM , NOVECTM 1230, CO2, Halon 1301, FE-13TM , FE-25TM , NAF S 125TM , NAF S 227TM , NAF-S-IIITM and CEA-410

Highly accurate – our sensors are proven to measure the liquid level accurate to +/- 1.5mm

Immediate notifications – in a variety of formats. The system has a standard relay that triggers an alarm the minute the liquid level drops below the required level. If the alarm is triggered, the on-site maintenance team can quickly respond to the threat this poses.

Non-Invasive – Uses ultrasonic technology which DOES NOT require physical insertion into the cylinder and therefore DOES NOT weaken the structural integrity of the cylinder

Retrofitting available – to existing systems which eliminates downtime as the system doesn’t have to be disconnected/deactivated
