The FE-0209 is a Replacement Obscuration Filter for performing UL sensitivity tests for both Projected and Reflected Beam Smoke Detectors 25% to 100% Obscuration.
The Optical Beam Smoke Detector works on the principle of light obscuration. The photosensitive element of the Optical Beam Smoke Detector sees light produced by the Transmitter in a normal condition. The Receiver is calibrated to a pre-set sensitivity level based on a percentage of total obscuration. There are two general types of Optical Beam Smoke Detector - Projected and Reflective. The type used will be dictated by the installation and environment conditions and constraints.
