Both the toxic gas monitoring systems and fire alarm systems warn of potentially hazardous events. So, why not make sure they communicate with each other?
Whenever the subject of wiring or communicating between a Toxic Gas Monitoring Systems (TGMS) and a Fire Alarm Systems (FAS) comes up, there are usually negative responses and concerns that these two systems should “talk” to each other. However, once the subject is discussed thoroughly, it becomes clear that they should or need to communicate.
