The Gamewell-FCI Velociti® Series, analog addressable
plug-in smoke sensors with integral communication provide
features that surpass conventional sensors. Sensor
sensitivity can be programmed in the control panel software.
Sensitivity is continuously monitored and reported to
the panel. Point ID capability allows each sensor’s address
to be set, providing exact locations for selective maintenance
when the chamber contamination reaches an unacceptable
level. The ASD-IL2F ionization sensor
incorporates a unique single-source, dual-chamber design
to respond quickly and dependably to a broad range of
The Velociti® Series use a communication protocol that
substantially increases the speed of communication
between the sensors and certain Gamewell-FCI analog
addressable fire alarm controls. These devices operate in
a grouped fashion. If one of the devices in the group has a
status change, the panel’s microprocessor stops the group
poll and identifies the single device with the status change.
The net effect is response speed up to five times greater
than earlier designs.
