Small Bus System

Small Front Engine Bus System: The Amerex Small Vehicle System (SMVS) is designed specifically for use on front engine vehicles such as para-transit, airport shuttle and other small front engine applications.

  • The Amerex Small Vehicle System (SMVS) is designed specifically for use with front engine vehicles such as Para-Transit, Airport Shuttle and other small front engine applications. The SMVS kit includes all hardware components required for a complete turn-key Automatic Fire Suppression System. The electronics portion of the system is made up of a Vehicle Operator Display with Manual Release Pushbutton, a wiring Interface Module, and two Solid State Heat Detectors. The system is continuously supervised for proper operation. If a trouble condition is present, the Operator Display indicates a diagnostic Service System LED. In the event of a Fire condition, Automatic Fire System actuation occurs, an audible alarm sounds, a Fire LED illuminates and an internal relay is energized. The Control Panel features visual LED system status indicators, a silenceable audible alarm. Backup power is supplied by a standard 9 volt alkaline battery. The Fire Suppression System is FM approved. The electronics also carry CE Type approval.

    Every product we manufacture is designed with you in mind. The Amerex SMVS system is simple to install, is low-maintenance, and has a user friendly interface. With the quality you expect from Amerex products, our expert staff of engineers has designed the ultimate in fire suppression for small transit vehicles.
