Advanced Software Now Available for DIMES System

This innovative digital technology marks a major development in fire protection safety, as it greatly improves the certainty of fire suppression system readiness.

A fire protection system is only effective if the cylinders that contain extinguishing agents are fully armed and charged at all times. Systems can fail or perform poorly if there is a leak or premature system discharge.

Until the DIMES system was introduced, methods to determine the pressure and contents of gas cylinders were relatively primitive. Maintenance programs relied on outdated solutions, such as pressure gauges or weighing cylinders to confirm contents. Often, system failures go unnoticed, as they occur between regular maintenance checks. Or, in some cases, regular maintenance isn’t done at all. This greatly increases the risk of there being extensive damage in case of fire.

With DIMES, the risk of a fire protection system failure is greatly reduced since fire suppression cylinder contents are digitally monitored 24/7/365 –and DIMES proactively sends an alert in the event of a leak or problem.

Rotarex Firetec Sales Director Andrés Proes commented: “Now, we have developed special software that makes it easy to configure and monitor the contents of the DIMES system. It calibrates and tracks the key parameters needed for an advanced algorithm to calculate the exact extinguishing agent level. With a simple, intuitive interface, it runs on any laptop. It also enables users to pre-set warning levels and cylinder volume.”

Importantly, since DIMES works with every type of extinguishing agent, the software can be set for the specific gas type required – whether it is inert gas, chemical agent or CO2. Plus, it can be used on site or at a remote location.

The DIMES system’s innovative software monitoring and management capability is another tool from Rotarex Firetec that gives users the highest degree of confidence that their fire protection systems are ready at all times.
