Together with its cooperation partner AOA, WAGNER has developed a fire protection system for heightened safety requirements in which system components from AOA can be combined with WAGNER components in an optimum fashion using specially developed I/O modules. This can be used to create system solutions with SIL 1 or SIL 2 certification. The smoke detectors in such as system are equipped with relay contacts, which allows devices such as linear heat detectors or alarm elements to be connected directly to them.
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 256 system can be connected to the universal platform for train bus interfaces via an integrated Ethernet connection. It handles all fire safety related messages and controls such as declaring an alarm, triggering an extinguishing process or even such functions as controlling the selective deactivation of the air-conditioning system or closing of the fire safety doors.
