Fire Sentry - FS18X TriBand™ IR Fire and Flame Detector

General Info

The new Model FS18X is the latest generation high technology Multi-Spectrum TriBand™ (IR/IR/Visible) Fire and Flame Detector, which is part of Fire Sentry´s new FSX family of advanced technology Electro-Optical Fire Detectors. Using Fire Sentry´s patented WideBand IR™ Infrared, and Visible detection technology, the FS18X is a quantum leap in Electro-Optical flame and fire detection. Sophisticated software algorithms and dual microprocessors ensure that the FS18X has the highest fire detection performance combined with optimal false alarm rejection.

The WideBand IR™ Infrared technology using high-speed solid-state Quantum sensors allows detection of all types of fires, hydrocarbon and non-hydrocarbon, in all weather conditions and in all altitudes. Dual microprocessors provide a high level of fail-safe operation combined with fast and reliable performance. The Master Microprocessor performs high-speed digital sampling and signal-processing calculations; while the slave microprocessor handles various sensor data, performs communications, self-diagnostics and provides interface versatility; and additional memory for storing Event Log and FirePic™ data.

The FSX family of Detectors features Fire Sentry´s patented FirePic data storage and information retrieval facility. FirePic™ records pre-fire data, which can be recovered from the Detector´s non-volatile flash memory for post fire analysis and postulation of the fire cause. Additionally, unique Real-Time Graphing (RTG™) allows viewing of the data which the Detector actually sees. A combination of outputs makes the FS18X a truly versatile Detector for today´s demanding industrial requirements.

The FS18X Detector has a detection range greater than 60 feet (Very High Sensitivity setting) for the detection of a one square-foot Heptane reference fire and has a cone of vision far greater in volumetric coverage than any other Multi-Spectrum IR Detector.
