Specialist detection systems are sometimes the preferred option over point detection due to factors affecting installation, maintenance or the environment to which detectors will be exposed. MZX loops support a range of specialist detectors supplying both power and communications and providing true and seamless integration.
Optical Beam detectors connect through beam detector modules and provide options for end to end beams, reflected beams where transmitters and receivers are combined and auto aligning beams where building movement is overcome by on-board alignment correction devices.
Open Area Smoke Imaging Detection utilises IR and UV light to provide superior detection in spaces such as Atria, shopping malls and other large open spaces. Multiple detection paths provide a 3D image, similar to a CCTV camera ensuring optimum and reliable early warning of fire.
Aspirating Smoke Detection
Aspiration systems, like Beam detectors, connect directly to the MZX system loop through interfaces integral to the detectors. From the smaller compact systems through the mid to the high end models, integration is complete simply by connecting the two core loop to the device, saving time and cost over systems where external interfaces have to be installed.
Aspiration systems are widely used and preferred in challenging situations such as areas of high airflow or where condensation is present or where very early detection is required as in communications and computer rooms.
Linear Heat Detection
Heat detection may appear limited in its application due to the time it takes to respond to most fires. The Linear versions however are extremely versatile and useful in certain special applications. MZX supports two distinct linear heat detection (LHD) systems which between them cover a diverse range of applications; the ProReact Analogue Linear Heat Detection System and the MZX SensorLaser™ Plus Linear Heat Detection System.
Meridian Fixed Gas Detector (SIL2)
Scott’s Meridian Universal Gas Detector is an innovative next generation gas detection solution. Meridian’s single detector head supports combustible and toxic sensors. Designed for ease of use, Meridian significantly reduces upfront investment and on-going maintenance costs. With global approvals and SIL2 certification from TUVRheinland, Meridian ensures best in class performance and safety.
The Meridian Universal Fixed Gas Detector can interface directly with MZX and ZETTLER PROFILE fire detection and alarm systems using the DDM800 Fire and Gas Module, to provide an economical combined fire and gas solution. Industrial facilities protected by MZX and ZETTLER PROFILE fire detection and alarm systems often have a requirement for gas detection.
Employing the fire detection system’s high-quality cabling infrastructure to also communicate toxic or flammable gas hazards provides a practical and economical means of achieving total environmental protection.
IR Oil Mist/Smoke Detector
The Tyco IR6003/7 Oil Mist/Smoke Detector has been specially designed to be highly sensitive to the presence of oil and kerosene mists or smoke particles in the path of the detector beam.
The detector has been developed for use in enclosed oil rig well head areas, generator rooms and turbine enclosures.
