The Alpha 5000 System is an auto-aligning, self-correcting infrared beam smoke detector. Up to 2 detector heads can report to a single ground level controller. In addition, each system controller houses two pairs of fire and trouble relays, one per detector. Once the detector head is installed, using the easyfit mounting system an integral LASER can be activated. This allows the reflective prism to be located quickly and with confidence.
The Auto-Align function ensures proper alignment and maximum signal during the beam installation. AutoOptimise automatically steers and maintains the beam in the optimum position for reliable performance. The signal generated in the transmitter element and reflected by the prism back to the receiver element is analyzed for the presence of smoke. The internal microprocessor determines an alarm condition when a predetermined level obscuration is reached.
