January 7, 2016 - Det-Tronics releases SmokeWatch smoke detector that has explosion-proof rating for Class I / Division 1 Locations, 0-20mA and relay outputs, and IP44 ingress protection.
The device is certified to FM 3230, the standard in smoke detection performance. The photoelectric operation and signal processing features of the detector are an enhanced smoke detection technology appropriate for either large, integrated environments or smaller installations.
In addition, the detector is certified to an IP44 ingress protection level, which makes the detector suitable for heavy industrial applications such as offshore oil rigs, wastewater treatment plants, and other high-hazard environments.
The SmokeWatch U5015 smoke detector can be integrated into process control systems or a conventional fire panel through outputs that include 0-20 mA, a localized LED, and relays. Through its self-checking circuitry, the detector communicates its health status by conducting automatic optical and electrical fail-safe checks every one second.
