Detector Selection and False Alarm Prevention

The Opal multi-criteria, multi-sensor, photo, thermal and infra red (SMART3) detector is the environmentally friendly alternative to the ionisation detector, a technology that is now over sixty years old. The SMART3 offers comparable speed of response to the ionisation technology for a fast flaming fire and is less susceptible to false alarms. It can be deployed with confidence in locations where the main risk is from fast-developing flaming fires. SMART3 moves the goal posts in the fight against false alarms in the core detector space by delivering enhanced false alarm immunity.

In addition to being an effective alternative to ionisation units, SMART3 offers better performance over the alternative technologies of dual angle or dual wavelength optical detectors and photo-thermal detectors.
