Xtralis brings a new dimension to smoke detection technologies with its latest fire alarm system OSID (Open-Area Smoke Imaging Detection).
With OSID, CMOS imaging sensor and UV/IR dual beam , it provides much more effective detection particularly in high areas as compared to the point and standard beam type smoke detectors. CMOS imaging technology ensures that multiple receivers are placed in the environment at various angles, while providing 3-dimensional area protection, and preventing misalignment due to the movements of the building. OSID eliminates the risk of false alarms by separating smoke and dust particles thanks to its UV/IR dual wavelength beam type detection technology.
OSID generates rays in two different wavelengths as IR and UV. As particles of different sizes can be detected with the UV and IR rays, the dust in the environment is separated from smoke, and a more precise detection is possible.
Generally, beam type smoke detectors have two different detection distances as 50 meters and 100 meters, but it is possible to protect even very long distances such as 150 meters, by using a single OSID.
Emitter devices, which operate with a lithium battery for over 5 years and warn the user when it gets weak, reduce cost of cabling, and can be adjusted and fixed easily and quickly thanks to the OSID laser pointer adjustment apparatus. The other operations are executed by OSID within 7 minutes.
Beam type smoke detectors require a wide and flat area between the imager and the emitter or reflector. If this area is occupied due to external intervention, the system transmits a breakdown or false alarm. To prevent these false alarms, OSID keeps the beam corridor width in a very narrow area of 20 cm. This ensures that the IR and UV rays remain uninterrupted between the imager and the emitter even in very narrow spaces, and are not affected by external factors.
In linear beam type smoke detectors, the imager and emitter units must be placed at the same height in a linear line. Emitter can be connected to the OSID imager from 7 different points, and the heights of emitters can be positioned higher and lower than the imager depending upon the desired angles. In this way, OSID ensures 3D protection while protecting 50% more area than a standard beam type smoke detector. This significantly reduces breakdowns caused by external factors such as building vibration, building expansion and sunlight.
Thanks to all these benefits, it is now possible to create more flexible and more stable solutions with OSID in open area fire detection projects.
