How does it work?
The standalone detector uses photoelectric sensing technology. So these smoke detectors work on the light scatter principle where the light sources or light sensors are used to detect smoke.
When the smoke enters the detector's detection chamber, the minute particles present in the smoke block the light beam, which makes the sensors reflect light partially. The sensor chamber checks for the accumulation of smoke particles every 10 seconds, and when it detects smoke, it automatically triggers the alarm. So this is the working mechanism of a standalone smoke detector.
Standalone smoke detectors act way faster and are best known for their early detections. So when any hapless situations occur, these detectors can be of great help in detecting the smoke, which is the first indication of fire and helps in handling the situation easily.
1) Talking about the power supply options, smoke detectors are powered either by a battery or by hard-wired.The standalone smoke detectors sold here at Palladium Safety Solutions Pvt. Ltd is battery-powered smoke detectors. It has tamper resist pins for batteries. It gives out a low battery warning that reminds you to replace the dying battery of the detector.
2) The operating voltage range is DC9V (6F22 Battery)
3) The detecting area of these smoke detectors is 80m2 when installed at the height of 6-12 m. The detecting temperature or the humidity is < 95% RH.
4) It weighs about 200g and thus is lightweight and easy to install.
How to maintain it?
Mostly, smoke detectors don't consume much power, which is why most of the detectors are battery-powered and demand very little maintenance. So once installed, these standalone smoke detectors require only yearly maintenance.
Also, the standalone smoke detectors that run on batteries must be replaced often and ensure the proper working of it, thus reduce the chances of fire accidents.
How to install it?
These lightweight standalone smoke detectors are simple and easy to install. You can get support from professionals to install these detectors in commercial buildings or just drill holes by yourself and mount the smoke detectors at home.
Conclusion: The standalone smoke detectors are mainly designed to warn people about the fire that has occurred in the building. They can be installed in your house or in any store, hotels, cafes, lounge coffee shop, etc and fire safety monitoring. Since smoke detectors are the first line of defense against any fire, it is worth investing in one.
Standalone Smoke Detector is a battery operated smoke detector that utilizes photoelectric sensing technology. When the smoke concentration on the site reaches the alarm threshold or the test button is pressed and held down, the LED of the alarm will turn from slow flashing to quick flashing and will give out sound alarm signals.
Standalone Smoke Detector works using the light scatter principle. The alarm contains a pulsed Infra red LED which pulses a beam of light into the sensor chamber every 10 seconds to check for smoke particles.
Two LEDs on each detector provide local 360 visible alarm Indication. They flash every six seconds indicating that power Is applied and the detector is working properly. The LEDs latch On in alarm. LEDs will be off when a trouble condition exists that the detector sensitivity is outside the listed limit. The alarm can be reset only by a momentary power interruption. The detector that initiated the alarm condition will have its red LED and relays latched until reset by panel.
