On a remote system the charge canister is outside of the bottle, allowing more capacity inside for the suppressant material. The suppressant material also stays "pure" as none of the propellant gets mixed in. Remote Charge systems react faster and discharge the suppressant quicker.
Novec suppresses fire by removing (absorbing) heat and blocking oxygen. It starts as a liquid but is atomized into a heavy gas as it exits the nozzle and the fog travels to all surfaces. The vapor alone is enough to suppress flame as it expands. This means you can do more with less - it does not require as much material so your bottle can be smaller (less weight). Novec is not harmful to electronics or humans and is non-corrosive. Clean-up is super easy as the material evaporates and there is no residue left behind. Another benefit of a remote charge system is that you get undiluted Novec gas through the lines first, not a mix of suppressant and propellant.

Electric systems are activated by pressing a strategically-mounted momentary push button. Using a military specification actuator to detonate the extinguisher, the actuator extends a steel pin, breaking a thin seal in the neck of the cylinder and discharging the contents. There is a test feature with the electric trigger that allows the system to simulate the trigger in a test mode. All electrical systems use a 9V battery as the only power source. Only name brand 6LR61 9V battery must be used (inferior batteries may not trigger the system).
