Optical-beam smoke detector is designed for large areas

Fire Fighting Enterprises, optical beam smoke detector

The Fireray 3000 end-to-end optical-beam smoke detector from Fire Fighting Enterprises is said to offer cost-effective protection of large open spaces and for situations where ceiling mounting is difficult or inappropriate. A few units can cover very large areas — with benefits for the time, cost and complexity of installation.

These detectors are well suited to applications where the line of sight for the infra-red beam is narrow or where reflective surfaces may cause complications for systems based on reflective beams.

A system can be installed by one person, thanks to a variety of aids and features. A visible targeting laser in the receiver head helps initial placement and setup. During commissioning, LEDs on the heads light up to help fine-tune the alignment path.
