Self-Aligning Reflective Beam
The Fireray 5000 System is an auto-aligning infrared beam smoke detector. Once the detector head is installed, using the easy-fit mounting system, an integral LASER can be activated. This allows the reflective prism to be located quickly and with confidence.
The AutOptimiser beam alignment system then takes over and 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 1ft. (0.31m) and 2ft. (0.61m) below and parallel to 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).
