LIVE FIRE TRAINING: HOW IT WORKS
The Intelligent Training System utilizes patented sensor technology to detect how well a trainee uses theBullEx SmartExtinguisher. I.T.S. can sense if the properly aiming and sweeping back and forth across the base of the fire. The four sensors on the I.T.S. unit detect the discharge of compressed air and water from the SmartExtinguisher. The on-board control system then varies the flames in response to the technique being used.

To successfully extinguish the fire, the trainee must aim and sweep the extinguisher across the base of the fire. If the trainee aims below or above the base, the flames will go down, but will not extinguish. If the trainee only aims at one side of the fire, that side will be extinguished while the other side continues to grow. The SmartExtinguisher discharges compressed air and water, eliminating the need to discharge and recharge costly dry chemical or CO2 extinguishers resulting in a substantial cost savings.

A trainer’s handheld controller selects the class of fire to demonstrate (A, B, or C) as well as one of four difficulty levels. Once set, the instructor presses and holds the ignition button and then it’s up to the trainee to actually extinguish the flames. The fire goes out when the trainee uses the proper sweeping technique. If the trainee is unsuccessful, the fire can be extinguished by releasing the ignition button. The flare up button can be used to instantly reignite the flames at any point, to further challenge trainees. The display on the controller shows the status of the system and how long the trainee took to put out the fire, or if the fire has even been extinguished.

Safety features include an emergency shut off switch and tilt sensors that automatically shut-off the propane if the system is bumped or set-up improperly.
