Sensor Electronics develops single unit detection and suppression

A standalone fireman that integrates fire detection with fire suppression in a single unit has been developed by Sensor Electronics.

The device uses a heat-sensitive eutectic fuse to trigger an Aero-K canister to quench fires. The canister floods the area with a fine dry aerosol that chemically smothers fires and prevents reflashes. The unit is self-contained and it does not need remote fire/smoke detectors or external power.
