Discovery Addressable Devices
Apollo Fire Detectors Ltd specializes in the design and manufacture of high-quality fire detection solutions for commercial and industrial applications. From their base in Havant, near Portsmouth on the UK’s south coast, they have, for over 40 years, designed and built products that save lives and protect property from the risk of fire.
Discovery is a range of high specification analogue Addressable Devices suitable for use in commercial, industrial, financial, government, IT/telecoms and healthcare applications. The Discovery range is designed to meet specifications for detectors incorporated in sophisticated systems. Discovery provides engineers with an additional dimension in fire protection capability. The Discovery communications protocol is a development of the proven XP95 protocol, making both ranges of detector compatible.
Discovery Heat Detector
Product code: 58000-400APO
Discovery heat detectors have a common profile with ionisation and optical smoke detectors but have a low air flow resistance case made of self-extinguishing white polycarbonate. For the European standard version of the detector, the five modes correspond to five “classes” as defined in EN 54-5. The classes in this standard correspond with different response behaviour, each of which is designed to be suitable for a range of application temperatures. All modes incorporate “fixed temperature” response, which is defined in the standard by the “static response temperature”.
Discovery Optical Smoke Detector
Product code: 58000-600APO
The Discovery Optical Smoke Detector operates using the light scatter principle and is ideal for applications where slow-burning or smouldering fires pose a potential risk.
Discovery Open-Area Sounder Visual Indicator (Red)
Product code: 58000-005APO
The Discovery Open-Area Sounder Visual Indicator makes full use of the Discovery protocol and has been designed for use in indoor and open areas. When the fire system is being commissioned a ‘Magnetic Wand’ can be used to adjust and test each sounder locally.
Discovery Manual Call Point with Isolator (Red)
Product code: 58100-908APO
A seven-segment DIL switch enables addressing of each call point at commissioning stage. When operated, the manual call point interrupts the polling cycle for a fast response. Bi-coloured LEDs indicate isolate and normal conditions.
