The new Model FS24X is the latest generation high technology Multi-Spectrum Triple IR (IR/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, WideBand 4.3 micron IR™, and Visible detection technology, the FS24X is a quantum leap in flame and fire detection. Sophisticated software algorithms and dual microprocessors ensure that the FS24X 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 FS24X a truly versatile Detector for today´s demanding industrial requirements.
The FS24X Detector has a detection range greater than 200 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. This means fewer Detectors can be used as compared to other manufacturers´ Detectors.
