Autonomous fire extinguishing unit for electrical cabinets and enclosures "R-Line"

POZHTECHNIKA Group in 2012 launched a new serial product: an autonomous gas fire suppression system for 19" server rack protection called R-Line (AUShT-NVC), using 3MTMNovec TM 1230 agent.

This is the first system of that type developped and manufactured in Russia by POZHTEHNIKA Group.

Main advantages of R-Line

Reliable protection of any information as a vitally important resource for any company. No one type of the equipment is completely insured against failure and damages. Even a small short circuit in a network of the server node may cause fire and loss of a large amount of important information. Recovery of an enterprise work from fire may take several weeks. Financial losses and lost profits during a downtime and also a cost of server equipment might be very significant for any company. The innovative system of the cabinet fire esuppression R-Line significantly reduces risks of fire and ensures safety of the equipment.

Quick detection of fire within closed cabinets. Use of a fire alarm and fire extinguishing system in a total room volume does not guarantee timely fire detection and elimination inside individual cabinets with electrical equipment (especially in highly tight cabinets). By the time a fire is detected inside a cabinet or server rack, server equipment may already be damaged - as a result of heat and smoke exposure. Tightness of a communication equipment is another problem, it makes difficult a penetration of an extinguishing agent from outside into cabinets. Using a self-contained cabinet-type system R-Line (AUShT-NVC) allows to solve these problems due to early detection and complete elimination of fires without harming protected IT or electronic equipment in racks and cabinets.

Saving money. According to DBNV.2.5-56-2010 in case of using R-Line (AUShT-NVC) to protect all equipment located in a server room and if there is no other fire load, it is allowed not to install an automatic fire-suppression system in a total room volume, but use a fire alarm system only.

Specification of R-Line


Use of 3M ™ Novec ™ 1230. This extinguishing agent is environmentally friendly and safe for humans and protected equipment. 3M™ Novec™1230 is non-toxic, is a dielectric and does not included into the international lists of substances prohibited or restricted to use.

Early smoke detection. Quick detection of first fire signs is achieved using of an aspiration system in  R-Line with two addressable analog laser smoke detectors with adjustable sensitivity of Class A.

False alarm protection. To provide high security is possible due to the intelligent command and signal processing system used in R-Line.

Easy integration and versatility. R-Line allows to develop complex high performance systems for information centers. Extinguishing systems R-Line for the closed racks and cabinet equipment can easily be integrated into a BMS.

Application of R-Line systems


Due to high versatility of this device, a spectrum of applications of  R-Line is very broad. This equipment can be easily applied in the following areas:
