Discovery® is a range of high-specification, analogue addressable fire detectors and alarm devices. Discovery detectors offer effective false alarm management by a combination of EN 54 approved operating modes and sophisticated algorithms.
Drift compensation further reduces the likelihood of false alarms caused by a build-up of dust in the sensing chamber.
In addition to the familiar smoke and heat detectors, the Discovery range features two multi-sensor detectors. One is an optical/heat multi-sensor which can be used to protect against many types of fire risk. The other is a carbon monoxide/heat multi-sensor which protects against both smouldering fires and those generating heat.
The Discovery Optical Detector has a white moulded polycarbonate case with wind-resistant smoke inlets. The two indicator LEDs are red in alarm.
Within the case is a printed circuit board which, on one side, has the light-proof chamber with integral gauze surrounding the optical measuring system and, on the other, the signal processing and communications electronics.
An infra-red light-emitting diode within its collimator is arranged at an obtuse angle to the photo-diode. The photo-diode has an integral daylight-blocking filter.
The IR LED emits a burst of collimated light every second. In clear air, the photo-diode receives no light directly from the IR LED, because of the angular arrangement and the chamber baffles. When smoke enters the chamber it scatters light from the emitter IR LED onto the photo-diode in an amount related to the smoke characteristics and density. The photo-diode signal is processed to provide an analogue value for transmission when the detector is interrogated.

Maintenance & Service
Detectors should be maintained according to BS 5839-1 or other locally applicable code. Test equipment can be ordered from Apollo for testing smoke and heat detectors.
Detectors should not be cleaned in the field except for careful removal of exterior dirt with a damp cloth. For cleaning and recalibration detectors should be returned to Apollo Fire Detectors or to the local distributor.
EMC Directive 2014/30/EU
The Discovery Optical Smoke Detector complies with the essential requirements of the EMC Directive 2014/30/EU, provided that it is used as described.
A copy of the Declaration of Conformity is available from Apollo upon request.
Conformity of the Discovery Optical Smoke detector with the EMC Directive does not confer compliance with the directive on any apparatus or systems connected to them.
Construction products regulation 305/2011
The Discovery Optical Smoke Detector complies with the essential requirements of the Construction Products Regulation 305/2011/EU.
A copy of the Declaration of Performance is available from Apollo upon request.
The Discovery Optical Smoke Detector operates using the light scatter principle and is ideal for applications where slow-burning or smouldering fires pose a potential risk.
