The new Model FS20X is the latest generation high technology Multi-Spectrum (IR/IR/UV/Visible) Fire and Flame Detector, which is part of Fire Sentry´s new FSX family of advanced technology Electro-Optical Fire Detectors. Based on the foundation of highly successful and reliable SS4 detector, the new FS20X Detector represents a quantum leap in integrating Infrared and Ultraviolet sensing technologies. The FS20X is a Multi-Spectrum IR/IR/VIS fire and flame Detector with the addition of a proven UV solar-blind sensor. The FS20X exhibits faster, false-alarm free response to fires over a wider temperature range and with a much longer detection range compare to conventional UV/IR detectors.
Conventional and older technology UV/IR detectors, using narrow band 4.3 micron IR sensors, will not respond to smoky fires or if the detector lens is contaminated with oil and other substances since both UV and 4.3 micron signals are attenuated, obscured or absorbed by thick smoke or detector lens contaminations. Also, these old technology UV/IR detectors will not alarm to any fire if they are installed behind ordinary window glass.
The new FS20X Detector using advanced patented algorithms for signal processing and fire and flame analysis is designed to alarm to all types of fires, hydrocarbon and non-hydrocarbon, in all industrial environmental conditions.
