Abstract

See full text

Fire control systems and release mechanisms. The release mechanisms of the present invention comprise a digital logic circuit for processing signals which are indicative of a condition in an outside environment, and for providing a trigger that will actuate the mechanical release mechanism in response to the condition, a power circuit for providing regulated power to the electronic circuit in response to the input power, the regulated power being used to operate the digital logic circuit, and a power backup circuit interfaced to the power circuit for providing the regulated power for a predetermined time in the event of an input power failure so that the digital logic circuit can be operated for the predetermined time during the input power failure.
