Fire Detection Systems

Fire detection systems are designed to detect and warn of an out-of-control fire in a particular location by monitoring environmental changes associated with combustion. These systems send out an emergency alert to signal that a fire has reached critical levels and warn occupants of the facility to evacuate.

The two primary, universal attributes of fire detection systems are their reliability and rapid response times: response times will depend on the implementation of the emergency plans, which in turn are associated with reliability. A system must not trigger a false alarm as this reduces the credibility and confidence of the system, which could lead to an increase in the response time to address the emergency.

When analyzing these systems at Pryxida TECH, our central objective is to design the optimal circuits for our clients according to the defining features of their projects.

Minimum Information Required

  • National requirements and standards for fire systems
  • Plant layout
  • Structural design of the facility
  • Process characteristics and/or type of facility use


  • System philosophy definition
  • Verification of regulations and interaction with external systems
  • Definition of detection technologies
  • System sizing, including coverage calculation
  • Design of require power supply
  • Design of fire extinguishing supervision and control of systems (and other systems, where applicable


Upon completion of the process, the client will receive complete system documentation according to the regulatory requirements. This includes system philosophy, location architecture and planimetry, coverage, and wiring. We also provide the list of equipment used and their data sheets, cause-effect matrix, wiring calculations, power supply and power backup. Documents such as typical installation and operation manuals, verification forms, and others are also provided upon request.
