Event description
Join Amerex for a lunch and learn. We will present the STRIKE Electronic Control System, a new addition to the KP Restaurant System.

About this Event

The STRIKE ECS is the result of years of rugged mining, transit and military electronic evolution. Armed with the experience of developing electronics in these environments, we designed STRIKE specifically to work with our KP System, a staple in commercial kitchens around the world. STRIKE complements Amerex’s existing Mechanical Release Module (MRM) and Pneumatic Release Module (PRM), adding the next generation of restaurant system controls with enhanced capabilities. The STRIKE ECS uses electronic circuits for detection, actuation, and manual pull stations rather than stainless steel cable, corner pulleys, fusible links and other mechanical components.

What does STRIKE mean for you?

• A smart system. The STRIKE Control Unit is the brain of the system, providing constant supervision of each circuit in the system and monitoring for fire and trouble conditions. STRIKE alerts the end-user as soon as an issue is present. KP with STRIKE is capable of monitoring and releasing two separate hood systems, either separately or simultaneously. STRIKE can also be tied to auxiliary smart controls, such as a building alarm system. The STRIKE unit also provides downloadable reports on system events. If the system actuates, an event record will detail exactly when it took place and how the system was activated.

• No more worry about grease buildup. Electronic detection components aren’t susceptible to potential grease buildup issues. Traditional system components are vulnerable to ever-present kitchen grease, potentially jeopardizing their functionality or necessitating frequent and messy cleanup.

• Fast and easy installation. No more running steel cable in and around the hood — just plug-and-play wiring. The streamlined STRIKE installation process replaces stainless steel cable and corner pulleys with simple, color-coded wiring, making installation efficiency one of the system’s key benefits.

• Quick, reliable detection and actuation. With two separate detection and actuation circuits, the STRIKE ECS is capable of controlling two complete fire systems. These systems can actuate simultaneously or separately, depending on the layout and needs of the kitchen. STRIKE’s detection circuits use either linear heat detectors that can cover the entire plenum or spot heat detectors for higher-temperature appliances. Linear and spot detectors can be mixed and matched as needed on either detection circuit to match the appliance arrangement of the kitchen.

Our food service industry customers choose Amerex’s UL-listed Class K fire extinguishers and fire systems because of innovations like our Zone Defense coverage and contemporary improvements like silver agent cylinders. The KP system with STRIKE is another leap forward in kitchen fire protection from Amerex, an industry leader for more than 40 years.
