VESDA ASPIRE Pipe Network Design Software
VESDA ASPIRE Pipe Network Design Software
The performance of an aspirating smoke detection system is dependent on the design of the pipe network used to transport air back to the smoke detector.
VESDA ASPIRE is a Windows®-based application that aids the specification and design of pipe networks for VESDA air sampling smoke detectors. It provides the designer with tools to speed the design process and ensure optimum network performance and installation quality. ASPIRE also makes implementation of the design easy. With automatic generation of lists of all the components required for the project and an Installation Data Pack, the installer will have all the information they need at their fingertips.

Model Numbers: VSW-202



  • Ensures optimum design of VESDA aspirating smoke detection pipe networks, including VESDA ECO gas detection and environmental monitoring
