SWIFT™ Intelligent Wireless Detectors SWIFT, Smart Wireless Integrated Fire Technology Addressable Devices General SWIFT™ (Smart Wireless Integrated Fire Technology) wireless detectors are intelligent (addressable) detectors that provide secure, reliable communication to the Fire Alarm Control Panel (FACP) using a Class A, mesh network. Wireless detectors can be used in the following types of conditions, where it is costly, obtrusive, or possibly dangerous to use traditional wired devices.
• concrete walls/ceilings
• surface-mount conduit
• buried wires
In addition, both wired and wireless devices can be present on the same FACP
providing an integrated, wired-wireless solution to offer increased installation
potential.The mesh network (within the SWIFT System) creates a child-parent relationship (for example, backup communication) between the devices, so that each device has two parents providing a secondary path to transmit communications on every device. If one device can no longer operate for any reason, the remaining devices can continue to communicate directly with each other, or they can communicate through one or more intermediate devices. After an initial mesh network is formed, mesh restructuring automatically occurs. The mesh restructuring locates the strongest paths possible within the network.
The SWIFT System also engages frequency hopping to prevent system interference whether intentional or accidental. The operation of each device is subject to the following conditions in compliance with the FCC Standards, Part 15.
• The device may not cause harmful interference.
• The device must accept any interference received including interference that may cause undesired operation.
• The SWIFT detection line includes the following dettors.
The photoelectric detectors transmit a digital representation of the smoke density through a wireless mesh that transmits to a gateway and to an FACP. Acclimate standard fixed heat and rate-of-rise detectors that do the following:
- Combines a photoelectric chamber and a 135° F fixed temperature heat detector.
- Transmits an alarm signal due to heat in compliance with UL Standard 521.
- Uses sensors designed for an open area protection with 50 foot spacing capability as approved by UL Standard 521.
All sensors offer addressable code wheels and twoLEDs. The LEDs are controlled by the panels. Operational modes include red, green and amber colors with various solid or blink patterns.The devices transmit communication signals across the mesh network through a gateway to the FACP. Some systems may require a user interface and annunciator to display wireless specific messages. The FACP identifies the SWIFT wireless device as another addressable device on the system providing similar detection functions and outputs as a wired counterpart. In addition, both wired and wireless devices can be present on the same FACP to meet the needs of a given application. A SWIFT wireless System can use any combination of modules, smoke or heat detectors.
