12 V Optical Smoke Detector (Art. no. RM1000)

For trouble-free and safe operation, this device must be installed and regularly maintained by a specialist trained by us. Arrange regular maintenance appointments with your installer to ensure trouble-free operation over the long term with the latest safety updates and new functions

The 12 V optical smoke detector reacts to visible smoke particles. If too much smoke enters its measuring chamber, an alarm is triggered. In the measuring chamber, an integrated infrared light source generates a light pulse every 8 seconds. Smoke particles from a fire change the light signal received by the light diode. A relay trips and the alarm center reports a fire alarm. The 12 V optical smoke detector is mounted on the ceiling in the center of the room. The minimum distance to the side wall should be 30cm. We recommend a separate smoke detector for each entrance area, staircase, living-room, and bedroom. By changing a jumper, you can configure the optical smoke detector as NO or as NC detector. It is therefore suitable for every wired alarm system. The smoke detector is supplied externally with 12V operating voltage and is EN54 certified.
