New Multi Head Beam Detector For Wide-Area Fire Protection

Published:  13 November, 2009

Fire Fighting Enterprises has developed the technology to allow multiple Fireray 5000 optical beam smoke detector heads to operate from one single control unit. The Fireray 5000 Multi Head has up to 4 beam transceivers connected to, and managed by, one low-level system controller. This offers savings in the costs on time, power, installation, wiring, and maintenance. Multiple detector heads mean that one system can detect smoke over an even larger area, and the heads can be positioned for total coverage of unorthodox indoor spaces.

The Fireray 5000 is already at the forefront of optical beam detection technology, with a motorised auto-aligning beam and automatic gain compensation features. During installation, the beam head will automatically adjust its aim to point directly at the reflective prism plate, with a visible laser aiding initial setup. Over time, the features will ensure that the beam stays on target and that it retains the correct signal sensitivity – counteracting against the effects of building shift, and the buildup of dust and dirt.

Each detector head can be independently configured from the single system controller to operate at a distance from 8m to 100m, with the capability for separate alarm threshold conditions (sensitivity and time) for each one. The controller then has one common set of fire and fault relays that apply to all attached heads for simplicity when communicating with a fire panel. The Multi Head Fireray 5000 has already gained worldwide approvals including LPCB, CPD, UL. A comprehensive datasheet for the product, as well as the full list of worldwide approvals and certificates, can be found on the new Fire Fighting Enterprises website at www.ffeuk.com .
