The SOC-24V is a reliable, high-quality Photoelectric Smoke Detector. It can be used in all open areas where Photoelectric Smoke Detectors are required, including in-duct applications. The computer-designed smoke chamber makes the SOC-24V well suited for detecting smoldering fires as well as fast- flaming fires.
NS-4 Series, NS-6 Series, HSC-4R or HSC-R Style bases may be used with the SOC-24V.
The SOC-24V photoelectric smoke detector utilizes one bicol- ored LED for indication of status. In a normal standby condi- tion the LED flash Green every 3 seconds. When the detector senses that its sensitivity has drifted outside the UL listed sen- sitivity window the LED will flash Red every 3 seconds. When the detector senses smoke and goes into alarm the status LED will latch on Red.
The detector utilizes an infrared LED light source and silicon photodiode receiving element in the smoke chamber. In a normal standby condition, the receiving element receives no light from the pulsing LED light source. In the event of a fire, smoke enters the detector smoke chamber and light is reflected from the smoke particles to the receiving element. The light received is converted into an electronic signal.
Fire Judgement signals are processed and compared to a reference level, and when five consecutive signals exceeding the reference level are received within a specified period of time, the time delay circuit triggers the SCR switch to activate the alarm signal. The status LED light continuously during the alarm period.
