The VESDA-E VEA series of aspirating smoke detectors combine VESDA reliability and early warning smoke detection with pinpoint addressability and a variety of annunciation options. They use patented air sampling points and multi-channel micro-bore air-sampling with enhanced or standard alarm sensitivity setting for the sampling points. As a multi-channel addressable system, the VEA detector is able to divide a protected space into sampling locations, enabling the localization of a fire for faster incident response.
