A SearchDataCenter.com reader wrote in to follow up with the Ask the Expert Question Regarding Halon or FM2000. With regards to the FM200 gas suppression system, how do we go about designing the space to accomodate the gas cylinders as well as the reticulation of pipes. I understand that it depends on the size of the room, however, there must be a rule of thumb that can be applied to calculate number of bottles, sizes etc. (A room of 16 m x 9 m with 3 m height ceiling containing IT equipment). Also, does it require a space to accommodate a control panel on the wall? How much power (watts) does the system require to operate.

    I can't speak as to the design of a system, but I can tell you about some that I have worked around. Once you get one installed, make sure to train all of the employees at the facility on how it works, what to do when it goes off, and how to keep it from going off in the event of a false alarm. Have semi annual refresher courses.

    also i have a problem...   You're asking about design elements of a system that may save lives as well as property. If you have a problem with design or installation, you need to ask your vendor or the manufacturer ( DuPont ).   Tom
