||After the halon ban: an alternative fire fighting concept
||Nach Halon-Verbot: Alternatives Löschkonzept [in German]|
||1990, Vol.6, No.3, p.148-154. Illus.
||A new fire-fighting concept for electronic data processing equipment foresees the installation of smoke and thermostatic detectors at each unit in addition to smoke detectors monitoring room air. For fire extinction, carbon dioxide is injected into the affected unit instead of halon 1301 being sprayed into the entire room, as has been practised to date in Germany (Fed. Rep.). This concept reduces loss and complies with a ban on halon 1301 going into effect in 1996 in that country.
