Sample Extraction Smoke Detection System SDS-48 according to IMO Rules, SOLAS Chapter II-2, Regulation 13-1
The smoke detection system is suitable for controlling up to cargo holds. It uses the existing CO2 fire extinguishing pipe work through which air is continually sucked from the cargo hold. In the smoke detection system itself the air which has been taken from the cargo hold is examined for smoke and blown out of the vessel by fans. The smoke detection system SDS-48 is explosion protected. For remote indication of fire alarms and faults a repeater panel must be installed in the wheelhouse. It will be connected to the smoke detection panel only by a 4-wire cable.
