Fike 202-0001Twinflex Mulitipoint with Sounder
INSTALLATION AND MAINTENANCE HAVE NEVER BEEN EASIER.
Fike's Multipoint detector can be matched to the environment in which it is installed for a versatile, attractive mode of detection.
This means easier, faster installations AND cost savings.
•Flexible options/modes of fire detection
•Self-calibrates every 6 hours
•Continuously monitors for dust contamination
•Economical, disposable optical chamber for easy replacement
The Multipoint detector has set new standards in detector technology, using microprocessor control even as a conventional detector and offering the installer a full range of detection capabilities with audible warning in one compact device. Specifiers and installers who choose the Multipoint detector, do so secure in the knowledge that the fire detection performance of the detector can be matched to the environment in which it is installed – and changed any time during the lifetime of the installation. The mode of detection required can be simply changed by configuring the DIL switch in the detector electronics module, or via the control panel/ PC on addressable detectors. All modes are compliant with European detector type specifications, and are suitable for use in installations compliant with BS5839: Part 1: 2002, Part 6 2004 when used in conjunction with the TWINFLEXplus system.
Modes of Detection
Smoke 1: Used where ionization detectors are normally fitted, especially when there are high ceilings or a risk of free burning fires (chemical stores, etc.), or fires that need to be detected extremely quickly.
Smoke 2: Used where optical detectors are normally fitted when there is a risk of a smouldering fire and for escape routes.
Smoke 3: This setting is designed for use in areas that are prone to nuisance alarms. The reduced sensitivity linked with a time delay feature means that a higher concentration of smoke needs to be present for a constant time period, before a fire decision is made. This setting, for example, is ideal for hotel bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms, the end user can change the setting from smoke 2 to smoke 3 if nuisance alarms are becoming a problem – whilst still offering optimum protection of a smoke detection setting, especially if this is what has been specified.
Heat 1 (Rate of Rise): Used where a standard rate of rise detector would normally be used.
Heat 2 (Standard Fixed Temperature - 58ºC/136°F approximately): Used where a standard fixed temperature heat detector would normally be fitted, suitable for kitchens, etc.
Heat 3 (High Fixed Temperature - 90ºC/194°F approximately): Used where a high fixed temperature heat detector would normally be fitted, suitable for boiler rooms, etc.
