Apollo XP95 analogue addressable ionisation smoke detectors (55000-500) offer several key benefits over it's conventional detector counterpart. The Apollo XP95 55000-500 analogue addressable ionisation smoke 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 smoke detectors do not give this facility.
Apollo XP95 55000-500 analogue addressable ionisation smoke 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.
