Function and system design
- The heat-detection cable 3) must be positioned near the engine, so that any heat and fire will melt the cable quickly.
- If there is a fire, the heat detection cable melts, triggering the alarm in the controller 1).
- The controller is powered by a 3 V battery (running time 1 year) or by the on-board power supply.
- As soon as the control is triggered, the sound generator 4) emits an acoustic signal to alert crew and passengers of fire.
- The extinguishers (number varies depending on the system) 2) simultaneously start the extinguishing process in the engine compartment.

An aerosol is a mixture of a gas and very fine liquid or solid particles. When an aerosol extinguisher is triggered, the potassium carbonate-based aerosol is generated and then released.
As soon as the aerosol comes into contact with the flame, the chain reaction from the combustion process is inhibited by means of chemical reactions with the free radicals. Aerosol is harmless and found in food as additive E501.
