The graphic annunciator on the panel is for the room's sub-floor smoke detectors.
COOL! :shock:
That is a system that would be cool! :wink:

They used zip-ties to make it appear as though it was still in place. Wasted my whole damn day. I woke up at 2:30 am and drove 50 miles for absolutely nothing because it had to be replaced.
With a different system right? :roll:

Firefly wrote:I don't know how I forgot to mention this, but I once went to perform a test of the deluge/foam system at Boston's Logan International Airport. We had an electrical contractor come in to assist us with the panel as the equipment was far too elaborate for us to mess with. He disabled the faom generators to avoid a huge mess and interruptions to business.

What we did was push around a wheeled cart with a metal pan on it, filled with gasoline. In various spots we would toss in a match and within seconds the flame detection units would sense the fire and it would set off the alarm system. The alarms were interesting. There were BG-12s scattered about (This hanger was HUGE) and the signals were those large red loudspeakers, possibly made by Wheelock.
