The investments in India likewise incorporate a flow laboratory at Switzer in Chennai. Flow switches for sprinkler systems will be manufactured there down the road. A cross-functional team created the conditions to bring this type of product, with international approvals (UL and FM), to the market. The project received the name of Fire Sprinkler Flow Detector (FSFD): The instrument detects the water flow in a sprinkler system after it’s been activated, also it then issues a corresponding alarm signal.
