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:
