ARES-IV CONTROL UNITS

  • The 100% Isolated High Level Immunity Multi Compartment Control Box receives detection signals from the engine, crew and other protected compartments and activates the fire extinguishing system.
  • DC-DC Galvanically Isolated microprocessor based electronics, enable flexibility to fit the specific system configurations and operating logic. The control panel includes activation and system test and warning signals, manual activation, automatic activation and system test features. Modern CANBUS serial communication port enables connection to vehicles main control system and can be used for maintenance and trouble-shooting.
