Nittan Europe, a manufacturer of conventional and addressable fire detection products, has launched an enhanced version of its EV-Firebeam Xtra loop powered beam detector: the EV-Firebeam Xtra SCI.
The EV-Firebeam Xtra SCI now features a short Circuit Isolator in addition to the benefits of the previous model such as advanced linear stepper motors which enables the beam to align itself to the centre of the reflector when commissioning and automatically re-align itself when building movement occurs. This innovative design overcomes many of the traditional issues associated with beam detection, including building movement which impacts reliability, and accessibility making commissioning and maintenance difficult and time consuming.
The sophisticated alignment process adopted by the new EV-Firebeam Xtra SCI results in exceptionally fast commissioning and routine maintenance. Under test conditions at 40 metres, the EV-Firebeam Xtra SCI’s auto-align time was recorded by Nittan at just three minutes, two seconds. Once aligned, a routine re-alignment was timed at just one minute, seven seconds.
The EV-Firebeam Xtra SCI standard package comes complete with a head unit, low level controller and a single reflector, which will cover distances up to 7m. Mid-range and long-range kits are also available to cover 70-140m and 140-160m respectively.
The EV-Firebeam Xtra SCI is the latest addition to Nittan’s Evolution Addressable Fire Alarm System range. It is VdS approved and fully compliant to EN 54-12:2015.
