Sea-Fire, Boning partner on alarm systems


Sea-Fire Marine and Böning Automationstechnologie agreed to create an interface that integrates Sea-Fire detection systems with Böning ship alarm and monitoring systems.

"Onboard fires are a nightmare for boat owners and crew," Sea-Fire president Ernie Ellis said in a statement. "This partnership produces an advanced system that not only detects fires for early warning, but pinpoints its location, enabling users to react more quickly in dangerous situations."

Detected fire and status information appears on a touch screen with convenient deck plan graphics and are available in several sizes. The same touch-screen device is used by MAN engines and BMW automobiles. In case of alarm, there is immediate access to data from multiple fire zones.
