Esteri CAFS by One Seven® combines a traditional vehicle pump and an efficient CAF system into one compact unit. Mounted on the same body as a reliable Esteri pump, the system saves space and makes it easier to install in a vehicle. In addition to its traditional use, the unit produces an efficient CAFS fire extinguisher.
Esteri Group is a renowned Finnish manufacturer of high-quality firefighting equipment with over 125 years of experience. Its Esteri-branded pumps are widely used both in Finland and abroad.
Last year Esteri Group added one new product to its pump range – Esteri 10-3000 OS CAFS by combining its widely used Esteri Pumps with One Seven® high-end CAFS technology, which is a combination of versatility, reliability and accuracy that has already proven to be a justified choice for many rescue services.
The One Seven® CAFS technology opens up a wide range of use for all types of urban fires – internal and external house fires, vehicle fires and burning garbage containers. House and apartment fires pose the greatest threat to life and property, especially in areas with high population density. Therefore, municipalities need effective mobile firefighting systems that are quickly ready for use.
With its short extinguishing times and its economical use of water the One Seven® system offers particularly effective loss prevention, preserves the water supply of the fire engine and thus enables longer operation times and better control of fire sources.
In addition, One Seven® firefighting solutions are easy to use and provide more security for firefighters, especially in dangerous indoor operations to save lives.
The space-saving design of Esteri CAFS by One Seven® is highly appreciated by users and truck manufacturers.
Intuitive system control, as simple as the smartphone
With the new OSeC control (One Seven® easy Control) from Schmitz One Seven® GmbH, modern communication technology has also made its way into the operation of the Esteri CAFS One Seven® compressed air foam system. Gone are the days when the operator had to choose between numerous buttons (and certainly also pressed them incorrectly in stressful situations) in order to adapt the extinguishing system to fire conditions.
The OSeC is operated via a modern touchscreen with colour display, available in 7in or 12in sizes. It can be operated reliably even with gloves or when the screen surface is wet. The display shows only those touch fields which are relevant in the current operating state of the extinguishing system. Fields that are not required are automatically hidden. This intelligent preselection of touch fields eliminates the possibility of serious operating errors.
The team of One Seven® software developers also attached great importance to the design of the icons: self-explanatory icons ensure quick visual orientation on the screen and intuitive system control in stressful operating situations.
The OSeC is programmed on the PLC. This is installed in a particularly protected way and can even withstand strong vibrations. This makes the OSeC much more fail-safe than controllers where programming is done directly on the screen.
If the external display of the OSeC should be damaged during operation, it is possible to operate the One Seven® compressed air foam system via a redundant control unit in the driver’s cab.
The protection class of the new One Seven® control unit is IP67.
The skilled designing and manufacturing team at Esteri is always ready to meet the challenge and fulfil the expectations of the customer.
