Certification for beam smoke detector

Fire Fighting Enterprises : 28 September, 2007  (New Product)
Fireray 5000 motorised beam detector covers smoke detection over a wide area
The Fireray 5000 from Fire Fighting Enterprises has been certified as compliant with EN54:12, CPD and LPCB standards. The F5000 is at the very forefront of beam-type smoke detection, incorporating the Easifit first fix system and a visual LASER alignment aid to ease installation. Once fitted, an automated, motorised beam optimisation process ensures that the infrared beam is always adjusted for maximum efficiency and functionality.

This product is the first and only motorised beam detector to be awarded the prestigious LPCB approval, and as such will be included in future editions of the famous red book. The unit incorporates AGC (Automatic Gain Compensation) to monitor and react to environmental changes such as dust accumulation, and an auto-optimise feature that has been designed to continually ensure that the infra-red beam is aligned with the reflective prism even in the event of gradual building movement. These features combine to allow the system to maintain a consistently high level of false alarm immunity over a protracted period of time. The beam can be fully adjusted and controlled from the low-level system controller, which uses only a two wire connection to the detector head - further easing installation and maintenance (and reducing costs). A range of accessories is also available to make fitting even easier.

Beam-type smoke detectors have several advantages over traditional 'point' type sensors, as they can cover much larger areas with far fewer units. One F5000 unit can cover an area of 1500m2, which would take approximately 15 'point' detectors to do the same job. The F5000 also houses the transmitter and receiver in the same unit, with the beam being reflected off of a small, unobtrusive prism simply fixed onto the opposing wall. This means that aesthetic intrusions are greatly reduced, as are the costs incurred - financial and disruptive - by installation, cabling and maintenance. The system is controlled (and can be fully customised) from ground level with a tastefully designed system controller, connected by a 2-wire cable. When protecting a large, indoor space from fire risks, beam detection systems are an ideal option, and the Fireray 5000 stands out with its unrivalled, functional feature set.
