  • Heat detector

    serch.it?q=Heat-detector

    A residential heat detector A heat detector is a fire alarm device designed to respond when the convected thermal energy of a fire increases the temperature of a heat sensitive element. The thermal mass and conductivity of the element regulate the rate flow of heat into the element. All heat detectors have this thermal lag. Heat detectors have two main classifications of operation, "rate-of-rise" and "fixed temperature". The heat detector is used to help in the reduction of damaged property. It is triggered when temperature increases.

  • Control and indicating equipment

    serch.it?q=Control-and-indicating-equipment

    Control and indicating equipment is equipment for receiving, processing, controlling, indicating and initiating the onward transmission of information as used in fire alarm systems. The fire detection and fire alarm system subcommittee of ISO/TC 21, Equipment for Fire Protection and Fire Fighting, had oversight for development of five standards covering detectors, control and indicating equipment. ISO 7240-2:3003 specifies requirements, test methods and performance criteria for control and indicating equipment (c.i.e.) for use in fire detection and fire alarm systems installed in buildings.

  • Fire alarm system

    serch.it?q=Fire-alarm-system

    A fire alarm notification appliance that is used in the United States and Canada, a Wheelock MT-24-LSM horn/strobe. A fire alarm system has a number of devices working together to detect and warn people through visual and audio appliances when smoke, fire, carbon monoxide or other emergencies are present. These alarms may be activated automatically from smoke detectors, and heat detectors or may also be activated via manual fire alarm activation devices such as manual call points or pull stations. Alarms can be either motorized bells or wall mountable sounders or horns. They can also be speaker strobes which sound an alarm, followed by a voice evacuation message which warns people inside the building not to use the elevators. Fire alarm sounders can be set to certain frequencies and different tones including low, medium and high, depending on the country and manufacturer of the device. Most fire alarm systems in Europe sound like a siren with alternating frequencies. Fire alarm electronic devices are known as horns in the United States and Canada, and can be either continuous or set to different codes such as Code 3.
