Detectors with the unique ASAtechnology provide outstanding detection reliability and protection against false alarms – even in demanding environments. Additionally, their selectable detection profiles and dynamic algorithms interpret signals in real-time. Innovative technologies such as forward and backward light scattering and redundant sensors further increase the detection capability and reliability of Cerberus PRO detectors, ensuring the safety of people and assets, as well as the very survival of businesses.
Planning and commissioning made easy and cost-efficient
Cerberus PRO is a flexible and scalable fire protection system that can be easily adapted to new conditions and grows along with your requirements.
For example, the ASAtechnology detectors are adaptable to the expected environmental conditions, deceptive phenomena, and fire risks. Should the building layout or space utilization change in the future, these fire detectors can be adapted by simply changing the detection profile. Furthermore, the networkable control panels allow system layout changes even at a later point in time, without significant additional planning effort required.
Servicing Cerberus PRO is both time and cost-efficient. Remote analysis and evaluation of the system reduce on-site maintenance to a minimum. With remote diagnostics, service visits can be planned more effectively, as the service engineer will know which parts are needed before coming on site.

Fast, reliable detection with patented technology
Choose from a broad portfolio
Cerberus PRO offers a detector for any application area. The standard detectors are an economical, reliable solution for standard applications. These applications have a low risk of fire as well as few deceptive phenomena – and thus present little risk to life and property. Applications include:
– Conference rooms
High-end detectors with the unique ASAtechnology (Advanced Signal Analysis) are especially suited for demanding applications with a high risk of fire and many deceptive phenomena. Applications include:
– Hotel rooms where the detector must be mounted close to the bathroom door
– Multi-purpose halls
– Large conference rooms
Relying on detection without false alarms
Demanding applications like data centers or industrial production facilities require exceptional detection technology. Highend detectors with ASAtechnology offer an extremely fast and highly reliable detection response, whether in a sensitive or harsh environment. As they provide more than 20 detection profiles, they can be set to meet the exact, prevailing environmental conditions. These detectors are virtually immune to deceptive phenomena like steam, dust, or gas, which prevents unnecessary downtime and costs caused by false alarms.
Offering the highest detection security
The basis for ASAtechnology is the photo sensor arrangement that uses state-of-the-art forward and backward light scattering technology. It provides optical analysis of smoke particles and improves the detection capability of the detectors, making them virtually immune to false alarms.
The sophisticated detectors also have two optical and two thermal sensors. The redundant sensors improve the reliability of the detectors, meaning if one sensor should fail, the detector will still provide highly reliable operation. The detectors comply with NFPA 76 (Telecommunication Standard) and are classified as Very Early Warning Fire Detectors (VEWFD). This means that the detectors are extremely sensitive and thus provide very early detection.
Staying flexible to meet changing needs
Providing more than 20 selectable, application-specific detection profiles, the state-of-the-art ASA detectors can be optimally adjusted to always meet the current requirements of an application. If conditions should change, you simply adapt the detector by setting the appropriate detection profile. Should the room usage change frequently, you can also easily and quickly switch between selected detection profiles. This ensures that your application is permanently and reliably protected.
Detecting carbon monoxide
For maximum life safety, Cerberus PRO also provides a detector for all fire criteria: smoke, heat, and carbon monoxide (CO). The additional CO sensor ensures earliest detection of all CO-generating fires. It can also detect CO independently from fire. Therefore, when an application requires both fire and CO detection, only one detector is needed. This minimizes product, installation and maintenance costs. The CO detection profile can be set separately from the ASA detection profiles and complies with the requirements of the fire safety and carbon monoxide codes and standards UL 2075 and NFPA 720.
Protecting the environment
The detectors are made of environmentally friendly material. They are RoHS compliant, meeting the standards regarding the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment. Additionally, they provide enhanced detection equivalent to ionization detectors due to their forward and backward light scattering technology. This makes ASA detectors a perfect “green” solution.
Benefiting from all-around safety
The installation of the detectors on the C-NET circuit increases safety. In case of a broken wire, the system can be designed so alarms are simply redirected the other way to the control panel
Comprehensive safety with powerful panels
A cost-effective panel for small applications
Cerberus PRO offers a cost-effective stand-alone fire control panel for smaller, simpler applications. You can connect up to 50 detectors and peripheral devices. The detectors can be connected either via one class A or two class B CNET circuits. Notification devices can be connected either via one class A or two class B Notification Appliance Circuits (NAC). An RS485 connection allows you to install remote terminals to review and operate the panel from another location in the building. Additionally, the built-in Digital Alarm Communication Transmitter (DACT) sends system information to off-site monitoring stations.
Networkable panels for higher flexibility
With the networkable control panels from Cerberus PRO, you can easily accommodate larger, complex applications. Depending on the control panel, you can connect up to 504 detectors and peripheral devices. Up to 16 panels can be networked via a SAFEDLINK. This makes Cerberus PRO a flexible and scalable solution that lets you easily and quickly react to future changes in building structure. Additionally, the networkable panels can also be integrated into a management station from Siemens.
Protecting the smart way
The fire control panels combine high-security standards with the latest technology. The intelligent auto-configuration function supports finding the connected devices – automatically.
As a result, Cerberus PRO offers instant fire detection capability without delays created by manual configuration. In addition, the networkable control panels have an integrated degrade mode that is automatically activated. It ensures that notification appliances or other outputs are activated in the event of failure, and that alarm conditions of connected C-NET devices are forwarded via the SAFEDLINK – and thus reach security personnel, occupants, or the fire department on time.
Realizing solutions simply and quickly
Cerberus PRO control panels offer unique features that let you quickly put a system into operation from one access point. For example, you can manually adjust the detection profile of each connected detector at the control panel.
Operating control panels intuitively for greater comfort
Emergency situations are stressful. This is why Cerberus PRO control panels and fire terminals are easy and intuitive to operate. They display the required information in a clear and comprehensible way. Customized messages are easy to understand and follow in the event of an alarm.
Improving service efficiency
Cerberus PRO can be remotely analyzed and evaluated from any standard PC. This reduces the maintenance effort and the number of on-site visits. Thanks to remote diagnostics, the service engineer knows which materials will be needed before coming on site. This translates into time and cost-efficient servicing.
Expanded features available
The Cerberus PRO networkable control panels can be easily expanded to include the following features:
– Releasing module for a pre-action deluge or clean agent extinguishing system
– The system’s NACs can be expanded from two to four with the expansion module
– The optional DACT sends system information to off-site monitoring stations
– The SAFEDLINK can also use fiber optic cable for communication between panels
