RAM Response Acceleration Module and universal detector controller

Pyrotech RAM Response Acceleration Module


The RAM is an electronic interface module that is both a detector controller and a solenoid accelerator module in one unit.

 It accepts the signal from any available detector system and sends an instantaneous high voltage pulse to the deluge system to achieve the fastest possible response times.  

The RAM module is compatible with all detector brands, models and types (UV, IR, UV/IR), pressure and manual pulls)  This allows the use of various devices from various manufacturers. You are not tied to one detector manufacturer.

The RAM is designed specifically for the suppression of fire and deflagration encountered in the explosive, munitions and pyrotechnic industries. With use of the RAM, Pyrotech Ultra High Speed Deluge Systems (Rapid Response Deluge) can obtain response times of well under 50 milliseconds. 

Along with the Pyrotech CPF-74, the RAM has become the industry standard due to longevity, reliability, performance and support. The RAM easily interfaces with any available alarm or notification panels.
