Rail 138 fire detection and alarm system

For the transmission of detailed information

Thanks to its thoroughly conceived housing, modules, couplers and detectors, the WAGNER Rail 138 modular fire detection and alarm system can be flexibly adapted to any application. All fire detectors, manual pushbuttons and other elements are linked to the fire alarm panel via a loop wiring system. This also guarantees that if the circuit is broken in one place, all the equipment will still be connected to the control panel and none of it will fail. The Rail 138 system can be connected to the universal platform for train bus interfaces via an integrated Ethernet connection. It takes over all fire safety related messages and controls such as declaring an alarm, triggering an extinguishing process or even controlling for example the selective deactivation of the air-conditioning system or closing of the fire safety doors. In theory, several thousand detectors of the most varied types can be connected to the fire detection and alarm panel – although such numbers would never actually be reached in a train.

In a fire alarm system, the detectors, such as TITANUS®, are installed in the following areas:

  • On ceilings and inside of suspended ceilings
  • In under-floor areas
  • In (electrical distribution) boards/cabinets
  • In inlet, outlet and air recycling systems
  • In areas of high electrical density
  • Reception and forwarding of messages and notifications from independent systems
  • Forwarding of messages and notifications to higher-level train systems
  • Early evacuation based on the corresponding alarm organization
  • Danger and fault signals can be consulted at any time in the event log
  • High operational reliability thanks to the implementation of automatic active analysis/diagnosis logic for self-monitoring individual detection system components
  • Identification of contamination affecting the detectors facilitates targeted maintenance control
  • Dependable detection by configuring the detectors with individual adaptation to the requirements
  • Monitoring of fire detection variables (such as smoke) in the protected area via air sampling smoke detectors
  • Linear heat detectors
  • Optical smoke detectors
  • Heat detectors
  • Multi-criteria detectors
  • Coupling devices (input and output modules) for forwarding signals and activating control processes
All the fire sensors, manual buttons and other components are connected to the fire alarm control unit via a ring bus. This guarantees that all the devices remain connected to the control unit and prevents them from going off line, even the event of a wire breakage.
