FFE has received CCCf (China Certification Centre for Fire Products) approval for its Fireray 5000 optical beam smoke detectors, allowing the company to distribute them in China.
Using infrared beams, optical beam detectors can identify smoke over much larger areas than traditional fire detection devices, making them perfectly suited for large indoor spaces. They work by transmitting a beam of invisible infrared light across the building space to be protected. Usually wall-mounted at near-ceiling level, a receiver detects and measures the light and can recognise smoke interference anywhere along the beam path, triggering the alarm signal when the pre-determined threshold is reached.
The Fireray 5000 in particular excels at detecting smoke over very large distances (up to 100 metres). The motorised, reflective, auto aligning infrared system can be installed with up to two detector heads per system, saving on installation time and costs. In addition, each system controller houses two pairs of fire and fault relays, one for each detector.
