SOTERIA DIMENSION Optical Fire Detector from Channel Safety Systems IP55 12 Months WARRANTY Optical Fire Detector The innovative design of the Soteria Dimension Optical Detector differs from standard fire detectors in that it has no chamber and it is flush mounted. New optical sensing technology detects smoke particles outside the detector housing. A combination of Infra-Red LEDs and photo-diodes identify smoke particles detected just below the detector housing and initiates an alarm.

A short-circuit isolator is also integrated into the detector head. ow profile design. Fire detectors should always be installed in accordance with all local and national laws and codes of practice. Operating Principles The Soteria Dimension Optical Detector contains two daylight filtered photo-diodes and three IR emitters in different positions and angles. Different combinations of these are used to act as smoke sensors and proximity sensors, to measure the smoke level at the detector and to detect any physical obstruction or interference of the detector. As this detector is chamberless an IR LED emits light outside the detector. The light is scattered by smoke back towards the detector and registered by a photo-diode. A pair of microprocessors control these sensors, setting the sensor timings and using a digital phase-sensitive detection algorithm to reduce noise and the effect of background light. They then provide digital filtering for transient rejection, compensation for drift and temperature, and ultimately make an alarm decision. The mode of operation may be selected at the fire control panel (see Table 1). Optical smoke detectors are recommended for general use, particularly where there is a risk of slow burning fires. Communication The Soteria Dimension Optical Detector uses the Apollo digital CoreProtocol to allow more advanced control and configuration, whilst maintaining backwards compatibility with previous generations of Apollo products – Discovery and XP95. It should be noted that not all features of the Soteria Dimension Optical Detector will be available when used with Discovery or XP95 fire control panels. If the Soteria Dimension Optical Detectors are used with XP95 fire control panels incorporating drift compensation algorithms, these must be disabled when communicating with the Soteria Dimension Optical Detectors. Device Addressing The device address may be set using an 8-bit DIL switch on the detector head. Backward Compatibility The Soteria Dimension Specialist Optical Detectors have been designed to operate on XP95 and Discovery loops. EMC Directive 2014/30/EU The Soteria Dimension Optical Detector complies with the essential requirements of the EMC Directive 2014/30/EU, provided that it is used as described in this data sheet. A copy of the Declaration of Conformity is available from Apollo on request. * Tested in grey smoke ** Tested in oil mist to EN 54-7 standard Anti-abrasion coated windows make the detector more resistant to physical damage. With the detection region external to the detector case, the Soteria Dimension Optical Detector is designed to be flush mounted, with a very low profile. The device has a polycarbonate frontplate which can be locked into place with a grub screw locking mechanism. Three LEDs provide status indication as detailed in the Specifications table (see page 2). The Soteria Dimension Optical Detector has been designed and manufactured in the UK to exacting standards using advanced simulation and development processes. Conformity of the Soteria Dimension Optical Detector with the EMC Directive does not confer compliance with the directive on any apparatus or systems connected to it. Construction Products Regulation 305/2011/EU The Soteria Dimension Optical Detector complies with the essential requirements of the Construction Products Regulation 305/2011/EU. A copy of the Declaration of Performance is available from Apollo on request. Maintenance and Service Figure 1: Soteria Dimension Optical Detector dimensional drawing The Soteria Dimension Optical Detectors have been designed with a comprehensive set of features to support maintenance and service, from self test capabilities to drift compensation warnings on dirty detectors. The new FasTest mode facility on the Soteria Dimension Optical Detector, which can only be enabled on compatible fire control panels, facilitates quicker testing of detectors with appropriate test equipment. The FasTest disables a portion of the signal processing algorithm and also the builtin proximity sensor to allow for a faster detector response, whilst ensuring that the detector’s absolute sensitivity remains identical to that of Mode 3 (refer to Table 1). This helps to reduce commissioning time. The detector may also be tested using a smoke pen, with the method described in the installation guide for this product 39215-174. Maintenance has to be performed in accordance with all applicable standards. Clean the detector externally using a soft damp cloth. If the cleaning process takes more than 10 seconds, the detector may register a fault. For full cleaning and recalibration detectors should be returned to Apollo Fire Detectors. www.channelsafety.co.uk Tel: 0845 884 7000 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Errors & ommissions excluded.
