TLX Technologies custom designs electromagnetic products for clients’ unique fire protection applications. Their cutting-edge designs include latching, on-off, high-speed, high-temperature, and proportional solenoids, as well as solenoid valves.
The supervised latching solenoid actuator is TLX Technologies’ most popular fire protection actuator and is one of the primary releasing devices used on gaseous extinguishing systems. This actuator is usually attached to the suppressant’s discharge valve and electrically connected to the Fire Alarm Control Panel (FACP). When the actuator receives the suppressant release signal, it causes the discharge valve(s) to open and dispense the extinguishing agent.
The supervised latching solenoid actuator is designed with an internal supervisory feature that eliminates the need for an additional component or electrical connection. Without a supervisory signal, no alarm would be triggered if the electrical connection between the system control panel and the actuator was removed or left disconnected after routine system maintenance.
