It's an Emergency! ... Or is it? Understanding Alarm Technologies

There you are in your data center, when the fire alarm goes off. You wonder if it’s the panel alarm sending an actual alarm signal…or is it merely a trouble signal or a supervisory signal? You wonder if the alarm signal is coming from a “very early warning” air sampling detector…and at what level. Then you wonder about your Clean Agent Fire Suppression System and whether or not you should leave the building or push the abort switch. Will that stop the release of gas? If you can’t answer these questions, you need to attend this session for a thorough overview of the fire safety challenges regularly seen in data centers. Learn about risks and solutions through a series of real-world scenarios.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how a data center fire panel works
2. Discover what causes false alarms
3. Analyze ways to investigate a smoke/thermal event
4. Discuss strategies to avoid false fire alarms
