The Protec Algo-Tec™ 6000/FIREBEAM40 Addressable Loop Powered Reflective Optical Beam Smoke Detector includes a motorised head unit containing an infra-red transmitter and receiver, a ground level controller and prism reflector. Making use of the prism reflector the returned infrared beam is analysed for smoke contamination and registers a fire condition at a pre determined level.
At ground level the controller unit is used to make operational adjustments. The standard unit covers a range of 5 to 40 metres. To increase the beam range additional reflectors are added.We have 2 kits available; FIREBEAM40/80KIT for a range of 40 to 80 metres, and FIREBEAM80/100KIT for a range of 80 to 100 metres.
The Protec Algo-Tec™ 6000/FIREBEAM40 is a loop powered, interactive digital addressable device and is compatible with the Protec Algo-Tec™ 6000 range.
The 6000/FIREBEAM40 head incorporates microprocessor controlled motors that intelligently align the head at all times. When first commissioned the head accurately aligns itself, and in operation the head will re-align should there be building movement, a problem with new build settlement and environmental change. The units unique ability to self align means that high level re-adjustment because of this, is no longer required, saving time, disruption and cost. The motorised head means greater reliability that will reduce troublesome false alarms.
Maintenance is also simplified as the low level controller has a simple menu system viewed through an LCD screen. All adjustments can be made at ground level including a test procedure and full diagnostics.
