The Auto-Align function ensures proper alignment and maximum signal during the beam installation. AutoOptimise automatically steers and maintains the beam in the optimum position for reliable performance. The signal generated in the transmitter element and reflected by the prism back to the receiver element is analyzed for the presence of smoke. The internal microprocessor determines an alarm condition when a predetermined level of obscuration is reached.
The system is designed to be mounted so the beam will project between 19” (0.5m) and 24” (0.6m) below the ceiling. Lateral detection may be up to 30ft. (9.144m) on either side of the beam, providing a maximum total coverage area of up to 19,800 square feet (60ft. x 330ft. or 18.29m x 100m). For installations complying with UL268/NFPA72, the maximum distance of Detector and Reflector from the ceiling must be 10% of the distance between floor and ceiling.
