Mt question is which is a better system using as firefighting to control room, is there any standard contain FM200 can be used in that room?

RE: Main control room which include( MIMIC LCD, SCADA Pcs, PLC/HMI panels)

Automatic sprinkler system is the way to go. All it takes is the room not being tight or a door left open and the gas will not control the fire.

RE: Main control room which include( MIMIC LCD, SCADA Pcs, PLC/HMI panels)

Often times people will use alarm/FM200/preaction combined for high value assets.

Thanks all,
I have concern the control room including (MIMIC LCD, Computers, Printers,Documents Switches..etc), the gas (FM 200) not affect on these equipments or not.
anyone has standard reference to which system is better for used.

RE: Main control room which include( MIMIC LCD, SCADA Pcs, PLC/HMI panels)

Take a look at NFPA 75: Standard for the Fire Protection of Information Technology Equipment, 2017 Edition you can view it for free at the NFPA web site. Your occupancy does not have the same fire exposure but it may provide some insight. Also contact the insurance company engineering department to see what they want.

Most control rooms I have reviewed are occupied 24/7/365, have automatic sprinkler protection, smoke detection, or nothing at all. Insurance requirements will be based on $$$ at risk and related business interruption exposure.

RE: Main control room which include( MIMIC LCD, SCADA Pcs, PLC/HMI panels)

You will also need to review NFPA 2001 for the design requirements of the clean agent system(s) and NFPA 72 for the selected method of fire detection.
