Reflective Beam Detector

DESCRIPTION

The system comprises of a single unit incorporating an infra-red transmitter and receiver. The signal generated in the transmitter element and reflected by the prism back to the receiver element is analyzed for the presence of smoke. The internal microprocessor determines an alarm condition when a predetermined level is reached.

The system is designed to be mounted so the beam will project between 0.5 m and 0.6 m below and parallel to the ceiling. Lateral detection may be up to 9.144m on either side of the beam, providing a maximum total coverage area of up to 19,800 square feet (18.29 m x 100 m).

Auto Align Beam Detector

DESCRIPTION

The Alpha 5000 System is an auto-aligning, self-correcting infrared beam smoke detector. Up to 2 detector heads can report to a single ground level controller. In addition, each system controller houses two pairs of fire and trouble relays, one per detector. Once the detector head is installed, using the easyfit mounting system an integral LASER can be activated. This allows the reflective prism to be located quickly and with confidence.

End to End Beam Detector

DESCRIPTION

The SHIELD Alpha 3000 End to End infrared Optical Beam Smoke Detector (OBSD) has been designed using the latest optical technology, incorporating modern industrial, electronic and software techniques. This detector offers cost effective protection of large, open area spaces with high ceilings. It is also very suited to applications where access to ceiling mounted smoke detectors presents practical difficulties.

The SHIELD Alpha 3000 is ideal for applications where line of sight for the IR (infra-red) detection path is narrow and where the building structure uses reflective surfaces. It has also been designed to be aesthetically pleasing and thus can equally suit modern architectural buildings as well as historical sites, particularly where ornate ceilings exist.
