Fire detector for ‘high-risk’ environments

Apollo Fire Detectors has launched a new, ‘unique’ low-profile fire detector – Soteria Dimension, which uses new optical sensing technology ‘in the form of a virtual sensing chamber’ that operates on the light-scatter principle.

Apollo says the flush-fitting detector ‘offers the choice of an aesthetically pleasing detection device’. It is also designed to prevent tampering, with a chamberless detector. If the device is covered, the proximity sensors will give a fault signal.

The Soteria Dimension Specialist detector variant, meanwhile, encompasses all the technology seen within the standard detector, but also features an anti-ligature metal faceplate and tamper-resistant screws. Tested and approved for antiligature certification to TS001, it meets the requirements of the Ministry of Justice specification STD/E/ SPEC/038. Apollo said: “The result is a detector with greater resilience against interference or damage, suitable for use in high-risk areas such as prisons and healthcare establishments.” 

Both device variants have surpassed the requirements of European Standards EN 54 Part 7 and EN 54 Part 17, and are designed to communicate with CoreProtocol (but are also backward compatible with Discovery and XP95 protocols), and to facilitate maintenance and servicing, with comprehensive features – ‘from self-test capabilities to drift compensation warnings on dirty detectors’.
