Fire Detection System

Apollo’s Discovery line of fire products is especially suited for correctional applications, and gives users total reassurance in installations in which adaptability to changing conditions and protection against unwanted alarms are paramount. The Discovery Ionisation Smoke Detector uses a low radioactive foil to detect fires by irradiating the air in the smoke chambers and causing a current flow. If smoke enters the chamber, the current flow is reduced leading to an alarm. The Discovery Ionisation Smoke Detector is designed to operate in a variety of environments and responds well to fast-burning, flaming fires. It is also resistant to dust, offers five different response modes and includes a remote test feature.
