The Spectrex system is an automatic fire/fuel explosion detection and suppression system specifically designed for Combat Vehicles, providing increased survivability against fires initiated by IEDs and penetrating munitions, as well as fire protection during training activities.
In the crew compartment - the system protects personnel by reducing pressure build-up resulting from fuel explosions, limiting skin damage and minimizing formation of toxic gaseous by-products.
In the engine compartment - the system has the capability of detecting overheat and fire as well as successfully extinguishing fuel fires. The system is based on two independent systems, one for the crew compartment and the second for the engine compartment.
System configuration is dependent on customer requirements.
The test kit is used in order to check proper installation and operation of the fire suppression system and is used also during periodic maintenance.read more »
