Protec Fire Detection are on the Innovation Trail at Firex 2015

Come and see our newly patented Cirrus HYBRID at Stand G120

The new (now patented) Cirrus HYBRID is the only multi-sensor aspirating detector and is able to detect fire and smoke from many more fire types than any other aspirating detector.

Key Features:

  • Unique "Cloud Chamber Detection" (CCD) technology to identify invisible fire particles (unseen by any laser/LED detector)
  • High performance optical "Scatter Chamber Detectors" (SCD) to identify both small and large smoke particles
  • Independent and integrated intelligent alarm signal decision making through the use of complex algorithms
  • The largest sensitivity range of any aspirating detector
  • Immune to false alarms from dust, humidity and temperature changes
  • Programmable "Pre-alarm" and 4 programmable "alarm" outputs
  • 1-4 Sampling pipe configurations with integrated airflow monitoring
How it works: Fire & Smoke Detection:

Fire Detection - The cloud chamber detector identifies invisible sub-micron particles generated during the combustion process when an over-heat occurs. The cloud chamber measurement scale is in Particles per cm³ (PPCC) and provides the "Fire" detections element of the Cirrus HYBRID detector. Smoke Detection - Optical smoke sensors identify visible smoke particles generated as material over-heats. The optical measurement scale is obscuration per metre (Obs/m) and provides the "smoke" detection element of the Cirrus HYBRID detector.

Combined Fire & Smoke Scale:

These two technologies work both independently and, through the use of complex algorithms, together, to provide intelligent alarm decision making. The result of this synergy of technologies is a device that can verify true fire/smoke alarm conditions. As importantly, Cirrus HYBRID, can discriminate unwanted or false alarms which plague other aspirating detectors.

Cirrus HYBRID detectors indicate the two separate detection element scales (PPCC & Obs/m) however, as it's primary display these two scales are combined and are referenced on a bespoke scale known as "Combined Fire & Smoke" (CFS).
