Autronica Fire and Security AS – established in 1957 – is an international company headquartered in Trondheim, one of the largest cities in Norway. The company is owned by United Technologies Corporation (UTC) and employs more than 450 people with experience in developing, manufacturing and marketing of fire safety equipment. Total turnover is approximately NOK 879 million.
Our flagship is the AutroSafe fire detection system. The necessity of reducing high maintenance costs and increasing fire security encouraged us to invest considerable time and effort in developing this system. AutroSafe ensures optimal detection through its self-testing technology, SelfVerify. By checking all detectors, interfaces, connections and cables to alarm output every single day, the system is a pinnacle of fire safety. Not only does the system test whether a detector is capable of provoking an alarm, it even verifies the sensitivity of every detector with a calibrated signal, thus ensuring that each detector always responds to the correct alarm level. If any irregularity occurs, the display on the fire alarm panel will accurately pinpoint the source of any problem.
From Safe to Dual Safety
The AutroSafe fire detection system helps ship owners to meet the stringent SRtP guidelines. The dual safety technology enables redundant control of the loop. If the primary loop fails, the secondary loop control will take over, and fire detection is thus maintained. This is vital in an on-going emergency.
It is also possible to integrate the AutroMaster ISEMS which is a graphical safety and emergency management system, giving you the opportunity to view real-time status information during an emergency – giving full overview and saving time when most needed.
