New multi-function fire detector for Fike’s Twinflexpro 2-wire fire alarm system

Published:  11 July, 2014

The Multipoint ASD detector has all of the features and benefits of the existing detector, including seven modes of detection and optional built-in sounder, as well as a raft of additional features.

The new detector includes an optional integral strobe, allowing the 2-wire installation of an advanced smoke/heat detector, sounder and strobe, in a single cost-saving device.

The Multipoint ASD detector introduces an advanced optical chamber for enhanced smoke detection and a simple LED in the base, which flashes when the detector head is removed. This enables users to easily identify which detector is missing even from considerable distance, e.g. in a high-ceiling building. Easier testing and maintenance at height is further simplified as the new head is fully compatible with the industry standard Solo Detector Tester pole.

With Twinflexpro the whole system can be installed using only one pair of wires per zone - installation savings can be as high as 40%, according to Fike.

As Multipoint ASD offers seven different modes of detection, the installation is made even simpler since one device suits all applications. This versatile system has the ability to differentiate between call point and detector alarms; can accommodate up to 32 devices per zone; has a separate fault monitoring display for each zone; incorporates a man walk test facility and allows zones to be configured without the need to use resistors or capacitors.

Fike can also provide a special Output Unit that can be situated anywhere on the zone circuit and is ideal for connecting to equipment such as plant shutdown controls and door release mechanisms.
