AlarmSense is a range of conventional fire detection and alarm products designed to be connected to the same pair of supply wires, making installation quicker and less expensive. AlarmSense has been developed to make the design and installation of a fire detection and alarm system easier and more economic for small to medium-sized buildings. The range also allows an existing system to be extended or modified if necessary. This flexibility makes AlarmSense an excellent choice for use in HMOs (House in Multiple Occupation). As you would expect from Apollo, AlarmSense incorporates features that help reduce false alarms and patented technology to ensure the integrity of a system. The range also includes products, such as beacons, to help meet the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA).
The AlarmSense Manual Call Point is designed to operate with Alarmsense compatible control panels.
When activated, the AlarmSense Manual Call Point introduces a load onto the line, which is detected by the fire control panel. The fire control panel then increases the line voltage, which activates the sounders, the manual call point load is then removed.
The component parts of the call point are moulded in a robust fire retardant polycarbonate.
The AlarmSense Manual Call Point has been designed to operate on a loop of AlarmSense compatible two wire fire alarm systems. An alarm is initiated by pressing the resettable element. The manual call point signals to the Control and Indicating Equipment using zene voltages. An alarm status is indicated through the rotation of the resettable element, displaying and yellow and black indication bars and a solid red LED. The manual call point can be easily reset from the front using the supplied reset key.
