The FB-1 (FIREbeam) is a reflective beam Smoke Detector which features advanced motorised technology allowing it to self-align itself to the centre of the reflector when commissioning. Commissioning is a semi-automatic procedure where the unit aligns itself directly onto the centre of the reflector. Once commissioned the detector continually monitors alignment and will automatically realign itself back to the centre of the reflector if any building movement occurs.
The detector comes with a separate controller unit which allows engineers to commission, monitor and maintain from ground level. Detection range is 40 m for the standard unit, increasing to 80 m or 100 m with the addition of the medium or long-range reflector kits.
