EF-FTP Aspirating Smoke Detector

Key Features
EN54-20 approved
Dual pipe air-sampling
Single zone
0.001% to 20% obscuration/m

Overview

The EF-FT Pico detector is an air-sampling system with an alarm sensitivity range from 0.001% to 20% obscuration/m. This detector is classified as a Very Early Warning Smoke Detector and can reliably detect fire at an early stage at low to high concentrations of smoke over an area of up to 2,000m2.

The detector is configurable for a variety of environments, providing an ideal fire detection solution for power stations, telecommunications and IT facilities, and heavy industrial environments such as chemical plants, factories, warehouses and mining facilities.

How it Works

The Pico detector draws air through sample holes in a pipe network, then filters and analyses the sample in a laser detection chamber. Individually programmable alarm states (Alert, Action, Fire 1, and Fire 2) are shown on the display, which contains four alarm LEDs and an OK/FAULT LED. Dedicated output relays also provide interfaces for each alarm state and device faults.

Product Features

Programming and Configuration

RS484, RS232 and TCP/IP interfaces are available to connect to remote display and controls panels, system configuration tools (VSC or Configtracer) and email messaging.

Inputs and Outputs

The Pico detector supports a maximum of three optional modules, which provide the detector with additional programming output relay interfaces and/or 4 to 20mA analogue outputs.

Aspiration and Flow Sensing

The aspirator is a 2000 Pa, high pressure and high volume fan, which provides superior detection times over long pipe lengths and reliable detection in high air-flow environments. Airflow in each pipe is monitored by a dual element thermal sensing system, with airflow faults indicated on the display and monitoring equipment.

Additional Features

  • 4 alarms - Alert, Action , Fire 1, Fire 2
  • 2 x 100m (max) sampling pipes
  • 5 relay outputs as standard
