Waterproof fire detectors

February 2017 Editor's Choice, Fire & Safety, Products

Heat detectors are normally used in rooms where the temperature can be expected to rise rapidly in case of a fire, or in places where smoke detectors cannot be used. The 6000 series heat detectors are intended for outdoor or indoor use in high humidity areas.

The 6000 series detectors are conventional fixed temperature heat detectors, i.e. they will give an alarm within a response temperature range in accordance with EN54-5:2000. The sensing element is a heat pick-up shield and a bimetal switch. An LED on the detector will light up when the detector activates. All detectors support an output for a remote indicator.

All detectors are latching, i.e. they will not be automatically reset if the temperature, after the alarm, falls below the detector’s static response temperature. The detector’s LED and a connected remote LED will be lit until the detector is reset via the C.I.E.

All electronic components are mounted in a grey waterproof detector housing and fitted to the supplied connection box. The connection box has three cable inlets. Three compression glands and a silicon gasket for IP67 protection are supplied with the product.

All detectors are provided with three pairs of flying leads with female push-on connectors to connect the zone line cables (in / out) and the remote indicator.

Standard Features

• Fixed temperature alarm level.

• ATEX compliance (6295 and 6296).

• Waterproof (IP67).
