Detection & Maintenance

TC3001 3-ZONE Combination Panel

Description

The TC-3000 is packed with unique features, including a large LCD graphical display and keypad. The control panel comes with 3 detection zones, time & date-stamped log, advanced cause-and-effect and extensive I/O.

The TC-3000 detects fires in the same manner as a conventional fire alarm panel, but in addition to triggering an alarm, it can also control the release of an extinguishing agent.

To avoid false discharges, the TC-3000 can utilise coincidence detection or ‘double knock’ requiring activation of a fire detector in 2 separate zones before activating a gas release.

Optional accessories include networked Remote Status Panels, Hold or Abort pushbuttons and Active EOL units – making it one of the most advanced solutions available.

The TC-3000 series, three zone automatic extinguishing panel is approved to EN12094-1 (European standard for Fixed Firefighting Systems-Components for Gas Extinguishing Systems) and EN54-parts 2 and 4.

The TC-Extinguishing system detects a fire in the same manner as a fire alarm system, but in addition to sounding alarms, it also controls the release of an extinguishing agent.

The extinguishing agent can take many forms from CO2 through to specialist gasses developed solely for extinguishing purposes. The agent is released into the atmosphere in the area where a fire has been detected reducing the density of oxygen in the atmosphere around the fire, thus extinguishing the fire.

The TC-Extinguishing system is used primarily in areas of significant value/ strategic importance to businesses e.g. computer suites,telecom switch-rooms thus providing cost affective solution to protect your work place.

Series 65 Smoke and Heat Detectors

Description

Series 65 incorporates well-proven sensing technologies, together with advances in materials and electronics technology, including an IC based on that used in XP95 analogue addressable detectors.

Having a wide operating voltage of 9-33V, the Series 65 detectors can be integrated into security systems, when used with a relay base.

The Series 65 wide voltage range consists of ionisation, integrating ionisation and optical smoke detectors, 4 grades of heat detector and a range of bases.

Series 65 Ionisation Smoke Detector – S65I

The sensing part of the detector consists of two chambers – an open, outer chamber and a semi-sealed reference chamber within. Mounted in the reference chamber is a low activity radioactive foil of Americium 241 which enables current to flow between the inner and outer chambers when the detector is powered up.

As smoke enters the detector, it causes a reduction of the current flow in the outer chamber and hence an increase in voltage measured at the junction between the two chambers.

The voltage increase is monitored by the electronic circuitry which triggers the detector into the alarm state at a preset threshold. An externally visible red LED lights up when the detector changes to alarm state.

An integrating ionisation detector, suitable for use in areas where transient levels of smoke may be expected, is also available.

Series 65 Optical Smoke Detector – S65O

Optical smoke detectors incorporate a pulsing LED located in a chamber within the housing of the detector. The chamber is designed to exclude light from any external source. At an angle to the LED is a photo-diode which normally does not register the column of light emitted by the LED. In the event of smoke from a fire entering the chamber, the light pulse from the LED will be scattered and hence registered by the photo-diode.

If the photo-diode “sees” smoke on the two following pulses, the detector changes into the alarm state and the indicator LED lights up. The detector housing is identical to that of the ionisation detector but has an indicator LED which is clear in quiescent state but produces red light in alarm.

Series 65 Heat Detector – S65H

The A1R, BR and CR (rate-of-rise) heat detectors operate by using a matched pair of thermistors to sense heat. One thermistor is exposed to the ambient temperature, the other is sealed. In normal conditions the two thermistors register similar temperatures, but, on the development of a fire, the temperature recorded by the exposed thermistor will increase rapidly, resulting in an imbalance, causing the detector to change into the alarm state.

Rate-of-rise detectors are designed to detect a fire as the temperature increases, but they also have a fixed upper limit at which the detector will go into alarm if the rate of temperature increase has been too slow to trigger the detector earlier.

The CS (static response) heat detector has only one thermistor and changes to the alarm state at a preset temperature. Externally, the heat detectors are distinguishable from the smoke detectors by having wide openings to the surrounding atmosphere to allow good movement of air around the external thermistor.

Sigma XT Fire Detection Panel

Product Overview

  • Designed and manufactured to the highest standards in a quality controlled environment and with European EN12094-1 approvals, the Sigma XT extinguishant releasing panel offers outstanding value and performance for all small to medium fixed firefighting installations.
  • With three detection zones as standard, extinguishant release can be configured to activate from any combination of detection zone inputs to allow (among other combinations) any two from three type activations such as would be required for detection in ceiling void, room and floor void applications.
  • The extensive configuration options of the Sigma XT allow the functionality of the system to be extensively modified while still complying with the requirements of the controlling standard for the equipment (EN12094-1, EN54-2 and EN54-4).
  • The panel contains a large LED display to enable easy configuration and control which also displays the time remaining until extinguishant release for added user safety.
