Fire Control Instruments Introduces New System Sensor Reflective Beam Detectors

Newest and Most Advanced 4-Wire Conventional Reflected Beam Smoke Detector on the Market

WESTWOOD, Mass. - Fire Control Instruments (FCI) is a performance and technology leader in the emergency evacuation systems industry for commercial, industrial and educational applications worldwide. FCI introduces the System Sensor BEAM1224 Series Reflective Beam Detectors, designed as a cost-effective and powerful alternative to traditional, old-style projected beam smoke detectors.

Capable of sensing smoke where spot-type detectors are difficult to install and maintain, the BEAM1224 Series is ideal for use in open areas with high ceilings. Additionally, the beam detectors are listed for operation from -22 to 131 degrees Fahrenheit, making them well-suited for garage and warehouse applications and other hostile environments where temperature extremes exceed the capabilities of spot-type detectors.

The single-ended reflective design allows for one-person installation that is far simpler than the traditional transmitter and receiver types of beam detectors. What's more, alignment is swiftly accomplished using an optical sight and a two-digit signal strength meter incorporated into the product.

The BEAM1224 series consists of a combination transmitter/receiver unit and a reflector, and has four standard sensitivity selections along with two Acclimate settings. Additionally, the BEAM1224S model is equipped with an integral sensitivity test feature that helps meet the annual maintenance and test requirements of NFPA 72.
