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.

Beam Detection

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.

Benefits of Special Detection

  • Specialist applications requires specialist expertise to design, install and maintain

  • Tyco products are designed to meet the most challenging applications

Beam Detection Range

  • Open-Area Smoke Image Detection (OSID) - An innovative system for reliable, cost-effective smoke detection for large, open spaces requiring standard sensitivity detection. In its simplest configuration, OSID uses one imager, a camera-like device with a wide field of view, and a wired or battery-powered emitter roughly aligned on the opposite wall within the protected area

  • FireRay 5000 Optical Beam Smoke Detection - The first of a new family of auto aligning infrared optical beam smoke detector products and accessories. This innovative system has been designed from the ground up to include pioneering technology that fully addresses the needs of the installer and user, both now and in the future 

  • FireRay 3000 Optical Beam Smoke Detection - Designed using the latest optical technology, incorporating modern industrial, electronic and software techniques, this detector offers cost effective protection of large, open area spaces with high ceilings

Aspirating Smoke Detection Range

  • VESDA LaserPLUS & LaserSCANNER Aspirating Smoke Detection - These devices with their very early warning, put you in control by alerting you to a prefire condition. In essence, the prefire alert buys time - the critical element affecting fire emergencies. Time to take corrective action, time to avoid the danger, the damage and disruption of fire, time to provide a wider window of opportunity

  • VESDA LaserCOMPACT - Designed specifically to provide all the benefits of aspirating smoke detection, including very early warning, in single environment small areas and where space is a premium

  • VESDA LaserFOCUS - Incorporating detection methodology derived from its VESDA predecessors the LaserFOCUS multiple point air sampling technology works by utilising a highly efficient aspirator that continually draws air into its laser detection chamber via a pipe network

  • VESDA-E VEU Detectors - The premium detector of the VESDA-E range. An Ultra-wide sensitivity range; 15 times greater than VESDA VLP, and provision for more sampling holes provide an increased coverage in high airflow applications by up to 40%

  • ICAM IAS800 Aspirated Smoke Detector - Provides a flexible solution for areas where other methods of detection are difficult to implement or where access is restricted. It also provides a level of anti-tamper protection that makes it suitable for secure applications

Linear Heat Detection Range

  • ProReact Analogue Linear Heat Detection System - provides an easy installation method for sensing changes in temperature. The analogue technology offers separate pre-alarm and alarm outputs in order to maximise functionality, coupled with open and short circuit detection and discrimination

  • MZX SensorLaser™ Plus Linear Heat Detection System - Guarantees fast and continuous fire detection even in difficult and varying ambient conditions. This system enables long and heavily fragmented facilities such as traffic and supply tunnels, cable routes and conveyor belts as well as large scale buildings such as production halls, cold stores and multi storey car parks to be monitored at all times
