ARES-II+ CONTROL UNITS

  • The Multi Compartment Control Box receives detection signals from the engine, crew and other protected compartments and activates the fire extinguishing system.
  • Microprocessor based electronics, enable flexibility to fit the specific system configurations and operating logic. The control panel includes indications and warning signals, manual activation, system test features.
  • Modern CANBUS (J-1939) serial communication port enables connection to vehicle control system and can be used for maintenance and trouble-shooting.
