Fire Fighting Enterprises upgrades Fireray 5000 smoke detector
By Anthony Capkun
July 27, 2013 – The Fireray 5000 optical beam smoke detector from Fire Fighting Enterprises (FFE) delivers wide area coverage for large indoor spaces with a motorized, auto-align, self-correcting detector. With recent upgrades, contractors can now install up to two detector heads reporting to a single ground-level controller. With two independent sets of output relays identifying the activated detector, time and cost for installation, wiring, and power supply are reduced, says FFE. The system controller now offers one set of fire and fault relay contacts for each detector connected to that controller; also, each detector configures independently and maintains its own range, fire obscuration threshold and fire/fault delay settings. The Fireray 5000 now also includes a new event history log that is capable of storing up to 50 detector events, including alarms, trouble, service and power On/Off.
