Fire protection is a major issue in our three core areas media technology, electrical engineering and event technology. In order to fulfill high fire protection requirements, external fire protection measures such as fire protection curtains or large sprinkler systems had to be used up to now. The innovative solution to this problem are the AMFE (Automatic Miniature Fire Extinguisher) and the E-Bulb (Extinguishing Bulb, the smallest fire extinguisher in the world) developed by JOB GmbH. Both fire extinguishers are filled with the 3M extinguishing agent NOVEC, which is harmless to health, non-corrosive and non-conductive.
The areas of application of the AMFE and the E-Bulb are numerous. They range from power adapters in advertising screens (digital signage) to medical ventilation devices and household appliances in private homes. The AMFE and the E-Bulb detect and extinguish a fire directly inside the device and interrupt the power supply to prevent the fire from spreading.
