GE intelligent addressable detectors are meticulously engineered to deliver high-perfor mance features, superb reliability, and unbeatable quality. With their highly stable design, these detectors resist air movement caused by heating and air conditioning, making them reliable performers ideally suited to modern building interiors. The installation and maintenance advantages of GE intelligent detectors add value throughout their service life.
The twist-and-lock design makes short work of installation and maintenance operations. A plastic breakout on the detector housing optionally pre vents removal from the base except with a special tool. A bright, easy-to-see LED fl ashes red when the detector is in alarm, thus eliminating much of the guesswork when responding to frontpanel indications.
The FX-HD is a selectable rate of rise or fi xed-temperature heat detector with an alarm threshold of 135° F (57° C). The FX-PHD houses an optical sensing chamber that detects smoke, as well as a fi xed-temperature sensor that detects heat. The detector analyzes data from both sensors to determine when an alarm is initiated. The FX-PD houses an optical sensing chamber that detects smoke. The FX-PDD duct detector prevents smoke from circulating throughout the building - see data sheet FX85001-0613.
All detectors feature comprehensive self-diagnostic capability. FXPD and FX-PHD optical detectors continuously adjust their sensitivity to compensate for changes in the environment such as the presence of dirt, smoke, temperature, and humidity. These detectors issue a dirty sensor warning when they reach their preset limit.
This intelligent analog device uses an optical sensing chamber to detect smoke. The detector analyzes data gathered by the sensor to determine when an alarm is initiated.
The detector continuously adjusts its sensitivity based on fluctuating environmental conditions such as the presence of dirt, smoke, humidity, or changes in temperature, and notifies the loop controller of any changes in sensor sensitivity. When the detector approaches its preset sensitivity threshold, it issues a dirty sensor warning, allowing enough of a margin for maintenance personnel to clean the detector before it goes into trouble condition.
The FX-PD is capable of performing comprehensive self-diagnostics and storing the results. Thanks to its high-performance optical sensing chamber, the FX-PD responds quickly and reliably to a wide range of fire types, especially slow burning fires fuelled by combustibles typically found in modern multi-use buildings. The FX-PD detects extremely small particles and triggers an alarm at the first sign of smoke.
