Honeywell introduces the new range of smoke detectors in India [Sep 2011]

Honeywell Life Safety (HLS), a business unit of Honeywell India recently introduced the S300 range of smoke detector in the Indian market. This latest development from System Sensor India enhances the functionality of the conventional detector, incorporating many of the advanced features previously only provided in an analogue addressable unit.
The Series 300 acts conventionally and thinks intelligently. With the introduction of the Series 300, specifies have a much better choice between conventional and analogue addressable systems in the small to mid-size installation, enabling many of the features of a full analogue addressable system to be provided in a lower cost conventional system.
The new features in S300 have been combined to increase the ability of the fire detection system to give greater protection to a building and its occupants by reacting more swiftly to an incipient fire without false and nuisance alarms also rising. The family consists of a photoelectric smoke detector, a photo-thermal detector and thermal detectors, available as both fixed temperature and rate of rise units. The photo-thermal detector is a true multi-sensor unit; the alarm signals from both the optical and the thermal sensors are continually monitored by the internal processor, with an alarm condition only being communicated to the panel after interrogation and analysis of both signals. While combined conventional photo and thermal detectors have been produced in the past, these have typically been two independent devices contained in the same housing; the Series 300 is one of the first conventional detectors to combine the two different technologies into one integrated unit. Two support products complete the range, a laser test unit and a wireless remote programmer with two-way communications capability. These two units make programming, testing, commissioning and maintenance an extremely simple and quick procedure.
The total installed cost of a fire system is heavily dependent on the size of the installation. The Series 300 is not only a technically advanced product, it is also cost-effective. The provision of installer-friendly features also reduces the total system cost, and the design ensures that optimum protection is maintained between routine maintenance visits.
