Infrastructure with large-open spaces presents unique challenges for fire detection systems. Buildings such as stadiums, large atria, airports and rail stations, hotels, convention centers and warehouses demand a fire detection solution that is sensitive to diluted smoke, is non-intrusive on the space and operates reliably without frequency of nuisance alarms. Optical beam smoke detection systems have commonly been applied in these applications due to their cost effectiveness and simplicity. However, the perceived issues with traditional beam detectors have primarily been their difficulty to align and proneness to nuisance alarms. The industry strives to improve methods to reliably and economically identify false stimuli such as dust, steam, obstructions and misalignment while ensuring a safe response to real threats. Technology innovations known as Open-area Smoke Imaging Detection (OSID) have emerged which improve on the fundamental basis of optical beam detection. This webinar will discuss technological advancements of smoke detection for large open areas.
