The FAAST Fire Alarm Aspiration Sensing Technology aspirating smoke detectors from Honeywell provide highly accurate, very early warning fire detection to protect mission-critical facilities and high-value assets from even the slightest traces of smoke.
The FAAST Series of aspirating smoke detectors combine dual source optical smoke detection with advanced particle separation to provide highly sensitive smoke detection, even in areas with high levels of non-fire particulate. FAAST XT can cover up to 28,800 sq. ft. (2,676 sq. m.) through four pipe inlets which are each monitored by ultrasonics for air flow. The device is fully configurable, with 5 programmable sensitivity levels, 3 selectable fan speeds, and offers an LCD and USB for ease of programming and device interaction. FAAST XT is approved for use in Class I, Division 2, Groups A, B, C, and D Hazardous Locations.
With FAAST’s unique dual vision sensing technology, a blue LED is used to detect extremely low concentrations of smoke while an infrared laser is used to identify nuisance particulates. Advanced detection algorithms interpret signals from both sources to reject common nuisance conditions and accurately detect incipient fire conditions long before a fire actually starts.
As an aspirating system, FAAST draws air samples into its sensor through a pipe network. Dual flow detection includes both ultrasonic and electronic sensing for pipe and chamber air flow measurement. Detection is as precise as 0.00046%/ft. obscuration. A patented particle separator and field-replaceable filter remove contaminants from the system.

Dual vision, single purpose
FAAST’s dual vision sensing technology uses a blue LED to detect a wide variety of fires with extremely low concentrations of smoke and an infrared laser to identify nuisances like dust that can cause false alarms and downtime. Advanced algorithms interpret signals from both sources to meet a single purpose — protect your facility, people, and assets with the earliest and most accurate smoke detection available.
FAAST’s all-in-one system configuration and monitoring software, PipeIQ™, guides you through initial pipe layout and system configuration. And once the system is installed, it enables ongoing configuration and system monitoring from anywhere in the world via the Internet using FAAST’s onboard Ethernet connection. The PipeIQ software ships with FAAST and can also be downloaded at systemsensor.com/faast.
Details and more details
FAAST provides you with the information you need to manage your environment. It includes 5 alarm levels, 10 pre-alarm particulate levels, and a 10-level airflow pendulum that verifies air is flowing effectively through the pipe network. It also includes a full range of fault indications. All of this information can be read quickly and easily on the device’s intuitive integral display* or through a variety of remote devices. *Multiple language cards available.
If there’s a situation at your facility, you need to know about it instantly. FAAST’s unique onboard Ethernet interface enables you to monitor the detector from any Internet browser, smart phone, or mobile device with VPN capability. You can also configure the detector to e-mail status updates to appropriate personnel. That means you’ll know what you need to know to protect your facility — no matter where you are.
The FAAST device can be mounted in a safe, easy to-access location while sampling points can be located in the extreme environment. This flexibility makes it easy to provide reliable fire detection in hard to reach areas such as elevated air chases, catwalks and crowded machinery.
