PRE-ACTION SYSTEM SPRINKLER SYSTEMS:
Pre-Action Piping Supervision: For pre-action systems, use either
plant air or tank-mounted air compressor(s). Specify a low air pressure
switch for transmitting a low air signal to the FACP.
Pre-Action Deluge Valve Actuating Circuit: The pre-action deluge
valve actuating circuit shall be Class A or solenoid coil supervised.
SPRINKLERS IN ELECTRONIC AREAS: Where sprinklers are located in
electronic areas, electronics power must automatically shut down prior to
water flow. Pre-action valves shall be operated by cross-zoned smoke
detectors. Pre-action sprinkler heads installed in the pendant position shall
be the dry pendant type.
