FFE, a developer of fire detection systems, has launched the Fireray 3000 Exd, an ATEX-certified and explosive proof optical beam smoke detector.

Set for widespread release across Middle East and Asia, the new model is designed for use within oil rigs, refineries, ordnance stores, and similar facilities.

Capable of covering wide areas of up to 1,500m2, the Fireray 3000 Exd provides early warning of highly smoke-generative fires. Designed to be operated by a single user, the unit utilises a laser-assisted alignment to aid in installation.

Fireray 3000 Exd is also equipped with light cancellation technology (LCT), which enables the unit to operate within challenging light conditions, such as area lit with florescent lighting and sodium lamps. This is achieved by actively monitoring ambient light levels and ‘subtracting’ away from the ‘real’ signal.

Additional features include an infrared transmitter and receiver linked with a separate control unit that can be operated from a safe area. This enables adjustment and testing from a non-hazardous location.

To detect smoke, the transmitter emits a narrow beam of infra-red (IR) light to the receiver head. Should smoke cross the beam, obscuring the signal strength to the receiver, then an alarm state is implemented.

Commenting on the release, Mark Osborne, managing director at FFE, said: “We are excited to be bringing this technology to market... it’s a major addition to our Fireray range.”
