What is important when selecting a fiber optic Linear Heat Detection (LHD) system? Is it wrong to equate measurement time with response time? How many channels are optimal for your configuration?
AP Sensing was launching a new series to find out more every Friday about fiber optic LHD including:
- sensor cable approvals
- spatial resolution
- system configuration
- alarm thresholds
- system reliability factors
- and more!
FIRE FRIDAY #1: LINEAR HEAT DETECTION RESPONSE TIME
What factors influence the response time of a Linear Heat Detection system?
Is it wrong to equate measurement time with response time?
FIRE FRIDAY #2: SPATIAL RESOLUTION
Are there any disadvantages to configuring a small spatial resolution when using fiber optic LHD?
What happens with slow moving trucks in traffic tunnels that generate exhaust fumes?
FIRE FRIDAY #3: CHANNELS
Why is a reduced number of channels better for your LHD configuration?
FIRE FRIDAY #4: RADIANT HEAT
Why is distinguishing radiant heat from convective heat vital?
Why is "fire monitoring" different to "fire detection"?
FIRE FRIDAY #5: CERTIFICATIONS
What does our full set of fire certifications mean?
And why do these certifications matter?
FIRE FRIDAY #6: HARSH ENVIRONMENTS
Why is our Fiber Optic LHD system suitable for harsh environmental conditions?
FIRE FRIDAY #7: QUALITY & RELIABILITY
How is our LHD system designed and tested to ensure robustness and utmost reliability?
FIRE FRIDAY #8: REDUNDANCY
What role does system configuration and redundancy play in LHD reliability?
