Multi-head beam detector gives wide-area fire protection


Fire Fighting Enterprises has developed the technology to allow multiple Fireray 5000 optical-beam smoke-detector heads to operate from a single control unit. The Fireray 5000 Multi Head has up to four beam transceivers connected to, and managed by, one low-level system controller. Multiple detector heads enable one system to detect smoke over a larger area, and heads can be positioned for total coverage of un­orthodox indoor spaces.

Fireray 5000 has a motorised auto-aligning beam and automatic gain compensation features to offset the effects of building shift and the buildup of dust and dirt on the reflective prism plate.

Each detector head can be independently configured from the single system controller to operate at a distance from 8 to 100 m, with separate sensitivity and time conditions.

The Multi Head Fireray 5000 has already worldwide approvals.
