Uninterrupted data availability 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year is one of the main requirements for modern data centers. Air sampling smoke detectors of the TITANUS® family have the highest smoke sensitivity for reliable detection of fires already in the early development phase – even at high air speeds and strong smoke dilution. Network card and Ethernet cabling in TITANUS® devices ensure that alarm and fault messages are integrated directly into the data center management system. After pre-alarming, data can be backed up automatically to prevent data loss - especially when the power is cut off. The widely used network protocol standard "SNMP" (Simple Network Management Protocol) has been implemented in the TITANUS® network solution especially for IT areas. This enables IT personnel to be immediately notified of malfunctions and fires in the monitored area.
