Updated Fireray 500
The Fireray 5000 optical beam smoke detector from Fire Fighting Enterprises (FFE) delivers wide area coverage for large indoor spaces with a motorized, auto align, self correcting beam smoke detector. With recent upgrades, contractors can now install up to two detector heads reporting to a single ground level controller. With two independent sets of output relays clearly identifying the activated detector, time and cost for installation, wiring, and power supply are reduced, says the manufacturer. The system controller now offers one set of fire and fault relay contacts for each detector connected to that controller. Also, each detector configures independently and maintains its own range, fire obscuration threshold and fire/fault delay settings. Fully backwards compatible with existing systems, this revision also anticipates the industry move towards analog addressable configurations. The Fireray 5000 now includes a completely new event history log that is an industry first, FFE says. Capable of storing up to 50 detector events including alarms, trouble, service and power on/off, the event log aids in trouble shooting and forensics. Each detector head beam can be fully adjusted, controlled and annually tested from the low-level system controller. The Fireray 5000’s AGC (Automatic Gain Compensation) monitors and reacts to environmental changes such as dust accumulation. Its Auto-Optimize feature automatically self corrects, ensuring alignment of the infra-red beam with the reflective prism, even in the event of gradual building, says the manufacturer. www.ffeuk.com.
