FIREX Tech Talks: Apollo Fire Detectors – Soteria Dimension

Apollo Fire Detectors: Soteria Dimension fire detectors

IFSEC-FIREX-TechTalks-20In this FIREX Tech Talks session, Apollo Fire Detectors provides an exclusive overview of its Soteria Dimension fire detectors, which incorporate optical sensors to streamline the design and enable flush mounting of the products. The devices use a combination of infra-red LEDs and photo-diodes to detect smoke particles, while chamberless technology helps eliminate dust and insect ingress to reduce false alarms, explains the company.

Apollo covers two versions of the Soteria Dimension family during the session. An aesthetic solution is said to be ideal for interiors requiring a premium finish, such as high-end residential and commercial sites, while the anti-tamper model features anti-vandal and anti-ligature metal faceplates to protect vulnerable persons in care and custody. The team provides an overview of why Apollo has launched the new fire detectors, and also provides a technical explanation of how its chamberless technology, Infra-Red LEDs and photo-diodes work.

Audience questions during the live Q&A session covered:

  • Does Dimension cover the same area as a standard smoke detector?
  • Can I mount this on the wall in a hotel room?
  • What does chamberless technology mean?
  • Why did you choose to shine the Infrared light source outside of the detector? What are the benefits of this?
  • How easy are the detectors to install? Is there anything I should know when fitting them?
