NEWSHEET 32

Temperature sensing for all types of environments.

There are many risk areas where dirty, dusty, damp, corrosive environments or limited areas of access and surveillance severely restrict the specification and application of point type smoke detection. The same applies to aspirating and beam detection...both of which rely upon the presence and detection of smoke before they are able to provide an alarm signal to a customer central control facility.

It has been said that whilst heat cable is false alarm free, it only detects in the late stages of a flaming fire. This is NOT an accurate statement.  As a 3.5 mms diameter continuous detector the linear sensor cable can be installed at the exact point of risk and with alarm temperature ratings of 68C/155F, 88C/190F, 105C/221F or 185C/365F it can provide an alarm indication at a pre-combustion stage. Statistics indicate that the majority of fire conditions (80% +) are undetected temperature rises which progress to combustion. Proline FM approved and UL listed linear temperature sensor can be connected directly to a central alarm control panel zone monitoring unit or similar device or via a Proline supplied interface unit which also provides an alarm point location facility....of particular importance in a no visible flame overheat situation. A recent additional optional feature provided by the Proline ZI interface unit is a remote alarm signalling via SMS to customer designated cell phone numbers (maximum of three).

International events where loss of human life and negative effects to capital investment as a result of a fire condition not being prevented or rapidly detected include an electrical fault on a Metro train (285 dead), a fire within a Night Club (232+ dead), a short circuit condition on a cable within a Russian psychiatric hospital (40 dead). More than 550 deaths at just three (3) sites)!

Proline could have provided improved detection at the above referred sites by monitoring and signalling adverse temperature rises. In some cases at a pre-combustion stage !!

Digital (LHS) & Analogue Linear Sensing

The means to locally monitor for temperature changes (rise or fall) at "point of risk" and at ANY /ALL locations along an installed length of temperature sensitive cable - regardless of environmental conditions.

Fibre Optic Linear Temperature Sensing

Line detection of temperature change and rate of rise along multi -kms lengths of small diameter fibre optic cable. It provides high performance near real time temperature Sensing and Alarm functionality with standard communication interfaces.

Proline 'Nero' Water & Moisture Detection

Rapid detection of the smallest of leaks within Industrial, Commercial Environments by a recoverable cable. Designed to provide 24 hours/day x 7 days/week continuous monitoring of areas where even the smallest of leaks can prove disastrous. Essential where undetected leakages can cause serious damage to today’s complex electrical, communications and computer networks.
