Abstract Very early fire detection in equipment cabinets containing high power supply sources and power electronic switching devices is needed when building and tunnel fire detection systems may not be well placed to detect a fire until it is well established. Highly sensitive aspirating smoke detection systems which continuously sample the air quality inside equipment racks and give local power interlock in the event of smoke detection, are capable of cutting the source of power to these circuits at a very early stage, thereby preventing fires before they become fully established. Sampling pipework can also be routed to specific locations within the cabinet for more zone focused monitoring, while the electronic part of the detection system is located externally of the cabinet for easy operation and maintenance. Several of these early fire detection systems have recently been installed in LHC and SPS accelerator kicker installations, with many more planned. This paper compares the detection technology from typical manufacturers, presents the approach adopted and its mechanical installation and discusses the integration within different control architecture.
