System Components & Specifications

Detection & Releasing equipment:

  • The Novec1230 Releasing Control panel monitors the condition of the electric actuator, detectors, warning devices, cylinder pressure, manual release and abort stations. All electric and electronic devices must be connected to the control panel to function properly.  
  • The Janus Fire Systems Releasing Control Panel is a flexible single-hazard releasing control panel that is well suited for a number of applications listed for use with agent based fire suppression systems.It utilizes a microprocessor-based system that has 32 Standard Programs, which covers a majority of installations. 


  • The Novec 1230 fluid is the next generation Halon alternative, it balances human safety with environmental responsibility. It has a zero ozone depletion potential, global warming potential of one, and 5-day atmospheric lifetime.


  • The Novec1230 clean agent fire suppression system can be stored in 360 psi or 500 psi steel cylinders.
  • Cylinders are categorized to 3 sizes (Sv, Mv, and Lv series) each with multiple cylinder size options.

Nozzles and Suppression:

  • Novec1230 distribution components are discharge nozzles (360o,180o, and 90o) along with the associated piping system and fittings used to connect the nozzles to the cylinder assembly
  • Discharge nozzles are used to uniformly distribute the Novec 1230 agent. They are performance tested to ensure that the agent is discharged within 10 seconds and properly dispersed throughout the protected area. Maximum nozzle height for a protected space is 16 ft (4877 mm) per tier of nozzles.

General System Specifications: 

  • Novec1230 fire extinguishing systems are designed to be discharged within 10 seconds into a room area, or enclosure with the structural integrity to retain the agent. The Novec1230 uniformly mixes throughout the protected area, achieving a minimum concentration level in accordance with NFPA 2001 and/or agency listings.
  • Trim components complete the installation of the Novec1230 system and consist of the electric valve actuato, the manual valve actuator, and the discharge pressure switch.
