Optical Beam Smoke Detectors

Beam Smoke Detectors Vs Aspirating

The biggest rival technology to Optical Beam Smoke Detectors for detecting smoke/fires in warehouses & large open areas is the Aspirating Smoke Detector (ASD).

While ASD is very sensitive in comms rooms and data centres (for which they were originally developed) in the warehouse and in wide open areas, this advantage is lost when compared to Beam Detection.

Condensation issues with Optical Beam and Aspirating Detection

Condensation can be a seasonal problem in warehouses during the colder months of the year.

Detection Systems, such as Aspirating Smoke Detectors and Optical Beam Detectors can give false alarms due to condensation and this happens in slightly different ways.

With Optical Beams, due to different temperatures of air mixing, condensation can form on both ends of the Beam (Detector and Reflector or Transmitter and Receiver).
