File suppression system, one or two?

File suppression system, one or two?

File suppression system, one or two?

Recently our data center had an outrage during testing FM-200 suppression relay test. The system has one street power supply and an generator for backup. We have two UPS and one fire system.

For some reason, the breaker was tripped. So in the retrospective, some people suggested we should use two power supply as the image.

But the question is how about the file system? Still use one or two?

File suppression?

I would think you'd want extensive hot fires for that.

RE: File suppression system, one or two?

I'm just as confused as to whether you're talking about a file system or a fire system, although I'd love to know just how much outrage the data centre had. I didn't think they were capable of getting annoyed, let alone outraged.

FM-200 is a gaseous fire suppression system, is that what tripped, or is it the main data centre that lost power during a fire suppression system test?

RE: File suppression system, one or two?

"File" suppression? Dossier or hand tool? If hand tool, which kind of file? Mill? Bastard? Second cut?

OP, please correct your spelling mistakes and provide more information; if you're willing to put in the effort, we would be pleased to help.
