The main sensor range offers four models - optical smoke detection, heat detection, multi-criteria detection (smoke and heat) and multi-criteria with CO detection which can detect sudden rises in CO or long-term exposure. The sensitivity setting across the board can be adjusted to suit the environment, giving the end user huge flexibility within their buildings. Subtle case markings identify the model used and all models come in a choice of colours to help with the aesthetics of any project.
The main range uses one electronics-free mounting base, making ordering, stockholding and installation simple and efficient. The sensors can be electronically addressed in just a few moments using a hand-held programmer via Hochiki’s ultra-reliable ESP protocol, negating the need to mechanically address on site.
The ESP open protocol is supported by all leading fire panel manufacturers for complete flexibility for the installer when it comes to panel choice and comes with features such as extended addressing, sub-addressing, adjustable sensor sensitivity and drift compensation.
The sensor range has been extended into other disciplines such as rail and those environments that require Safety Integrity Level 2 (SIL2) protection by the attainment of specialist, third-party approvals. The range also includes an IP65 weatherproof back box, perfect for adapting to harsh environments such as the marine sector.
