Advanced multi-criteria fire/CO detector

System Sensor’s Advanced Multi-Criteria Fire/CO Detector (AMCF/CO)


System Sensor’s Advanced Multi-Criteria Fire/CO Detector (AMCF/CO) provides a cost-effective solution for the growing commercial market that requires carbon monoxide (CO) detection. The AMCF/CO works with the new System Sensor B200S addressable sounder base. The B200S produces both Temp 3 and Temp 4 patterns for fire and CO alarms, which are synchronized across all sounder bases. For evacuation signaling, the sounder base can act as part of the system, and it is fully synchronized to other System Sensor horns and horn strobes. Traditionally, meeting smoke and CO requirements for these applications would require installing up to six devices, along with all associated junction boxes, addresses on the loop, and labor and material costs. For the building occupant, three of the devices—a separate CO detector, a separate smoke detector, and a mini horn—would occupy space. With the AMCF/CO, there’s only one device to wire, one junction box, one footprint on the wall or ceiling, and one address on the loop.
