SecuriLan forms the main artery of the system, connecting up to 16 control centres to create an enormous and immensely powerful fire detection system. If standard cables are used, the individual control centres may be up to 1,200 metres apart. There is virtually no limit to this distance if fibre optic cabling is installed.
Our new SpiderNet technology ensures even greater availability by diagonally networking the control centres connected to the SecuriLan as well as forming a ring-shaped link. This creates a high-security mesh which is even able to resist repeated malfunctions. A specially developed digital data protocol provides a vehicle for permanent communication between the elements and sub-systems. Automatic monitoring cycles and test routines run constantly in the background. SecuriLan filters out electro-magnetic influences, thus eliminating possible communication malfunctions.
The double ring connection between the sub-control centres guarantees full functionality up to 3-fold errors. This means that even repeated malfunctions do not bring any restriction in their wake with regard to function and operation and that controls remain fully available.
Although the system is constructed in a decentralised way, it behaves in the same way as a single fire detection and fire alarm system. All element statuses across the whole of the network down to individual fire detectors can be conveniently queried and operated from any control panel. This saves time and money. Security is also accorded the highest priority for data transmission via SecuriLan. For this reasons, all elements are operated fully redundantly.
