Let me post a diagram of an Ansul fire detection system and you can compare to yours.You can upload yours and I can review it also and then we can get together.There are variations, depending on the equipment involved.

Here is a second Ansul system with shunt trip breakers

Can you tell me how exactly to send over my diagram please? I am seeing the paperclip
Expert:  AssuredElectrical replied 2 years ago.
You just click the paper clip symbol, it will open a window so that you can get the picture off your PC and then post it here

Can you please send a diagram that has the duct sensor in the circuit to control the automated part of the system?
Thank you
Expert:  AssuredElectrical replied 2 years ago.
The first diagram is the standard Ansul switch for the fire suppression systems.Did you look it over, it has the switch and contacts to shutdown everything as required and keep the exhaust running for smoke evacuation at the same time.

Yes I looked it over and I don't see a duct detector. I have one duct detector and one micro switch for the ansel. Can you send me a line diagram that includes the panel, shunts, contactors, duct detector, ansel switch, plugs, and lights? I also have a two pole single switch for the intake and ex for normal operation. Can you please send over a diagram that includes all this?

I do not have all that information, sorry. That all comes with the systems.I will have to opt out of the question and put it back to the open board for all experts and maybe someone has access to the entire system installation.No need to reply, the site will notify you when the next expert posts.They will be up to date with reviewing of the information.Thanks
Expert:  AssuredElectrical replied 2 years ago.
Mine had everything except for the detector.It is all based on what exactly you have in place.
Expert:  AssuredElectrical replied 2 years ago.
