There are a great number of different detector types. During the project planning of fire alarm systems, it is important to correctly choose the detector which suits one’s actual needs in order to cover all potential fire scenarios. Currently there is still no fire detector which can be successfully used for all kinds of fire. In order to recognize the type of fire early on, it is important to determine its optimal characteristics and thus choose the correct detector by means of its individual response characteristics.





• Tdetecors are very often employed in smoky or dusty rooms with normal

temperature structures in wich smoke detectors could activate fales alarms due to disturbance variables, for example in workshops or kitchens, while the O detector is suitable particularly for the secure early recognition of fires with strong smoke formation in areas where personal safety is at the forefront.


• Anywhere that intense disturbance variables can be a factor, the O2T detects reliably with no danger of false alarms. Some examples: fine dust which is used in printing plants in order to coat freshly printed paper sheets; steam from shower cells in hotel rooms; microparticles from humidifiers in museums; or also dust in sawmils, bakeries, or other manufacturing enterprises.


• The OTG detector is the first choice where human lives must be protected and personal safety is at the forefront. It detects invisible and odorless carbon monoxide before a fire becomes visible. Because of this, it can already sound the alarm in a very early phase and thus prevents smoke poisoning, the most frequent cause of death in fire victims. Areas of application are for example hospitals, senior citizen and care homes, hotels, and youth hostels.


• Everywhere highly flammable materials are stored or processed and where a split-second alarm is necessary – for example in oil refineries, power stations, motor vehicle workshops, computer rooms, or laboratories – the Otblue is highly recommended.
