KEY FEATURES OF THE APOLLO XP95 55000-400 STANDARD HEAT DETECTOR:
Chamber constantly monitored to give warning of any pre-alarms on the devive.
LED illuminates on the detector when in fire state.
Fully compliant with Apollo XP95 protocol fire alarm loops.
Full range of equipment to compliment this heat detector.
(Base Not Included - Please See Related Products)
The Apollo XP95 Standard Heat Detector (55000-400) uses a sensing thermistor measuring the temperature of the surrounding air. A low air-flow resistant case assures a good contact between the thermistor and the air and avoids any interferences. The output of the thermistor is a voltage proportional to the external air temperature,which is transmitted to the control panel after beeing processed.
The Standard Apollo XP95 Heat Detector reaches the alarm level at 55 degree Celsius. An Apollo XP95 High Temperature Heat Detector is available, please see related products below.
Apollo XP95 analogue addressable heat detectors offer several key benefits over it's conventional detector counterpart. The Apollo XP95 analogue addressable detectors are much more false alarm resistant. This is because the chamber inside the detector is constantly being monitored, if the detector starts to become contaminated the detector will send a pre-alarm warning to the fire alarm control panel. This means that the detector can be attended to and cleaned or replaced before the fire alarm system goes into a full alarm state due to a contaminated detector. Conventional type heat detectors do not give this facility.
Apollo XP95 analogue addressable detector can also be assigned location text within the control panel. This is especially useful when responding to a fire activation on the fire alarm system. The reason that this feature is so useful is because it gives a full location description of the detector at the control panel position. This massively speeds up the time taken to locate where the fire alarm activation has occured. Whereas conventional fire alarm detectors would only give a zone number where the fire alarm activation has occured, meaning that the detector could be any one of upto 20 detectors.
