Fire load & smoke optimized monitor

The requirements of preventive fire protection often conflict with the desire to install screens in public areas of buildings. Visitor guidance systems, guest or employee information systems or advertising monitors are some examples of the applications in industry and public facilities. Mostly, the places where screens are to be installed are also part of the designated escape routes. Standards for fire prevention are prohibiting the installation of such devices which are likely to contribute to fire load and flue gas development.

The Data Display Group has developed a series of monitors which has been specifically optimized for fire behavior and flue gas development. All plastic parts, adhesive tapes and other combustible parts have been eliminated as far as possible. The housing has been completely made of metal.
In the absence of a classification system for electronic devices, the monitors were tested according to DIN EN 13501-1 using the SBI method according to EN 13823: 2015-02. The necessary fire test was carried out at the MFPA-Leipzig/Germany, which is a test body for material research and inspection authority for construction engineering industry. Tested results in accordance with the above mentioned standards were confirmed by an independent expert. The fire test has shown that the measured values are clearly below the class B-s1,d0, which makes the classification of the monitor in (B) which means hard-ly inflammable, and (s1) which means no or hardly flue gas develop-ment and (d0) no draining.

Monitor fitments
The fireload-optimized FLO series has either equipped as the PME series HDMI, DP, VGA, USB, audio line-out interfaces or an Intel® Atom PC. All FLO devices are available in the screen run 31.5“, 42“, 46“, 54.6“.
