Following the announcement of phased discontinuation of AutroSafe 3 since 2016, Autronica confirmed that these popular and widely deployed systems would cease to be supported with replacement parts and associated equipment going forward.
Old systems still work solid as a rock
Understandably, many vessel owners continue to use the old analogue addressable BS-100 detectors with interactive AutroSafe 3 systems for their fire & gas detection as they continue to perform effectively.
What risks our safety?
As the system and detector heads are no longer manufactured or supported by Autronica, it will not always be possible for us and other service providers to complete a system fix or replace important working parts in the event of a problem or system failure.
