Fire and CO Detection

The Advanced Multi-Criteria Fire/CO Detector (AMCF/CO) by System Sensor adds carbon monoxide detection in addition to fire detection.

The Advanced Multi-Criteria Fire/CO Detector (AMCF/CO) by System Sensor adds Carbon Monoxide detection in addition to fire detection. Courtesy: System SensorSystem Sensor’s Advanced Multi-Criteria Fire/CO Detector (AMCF/CO) provides an attractive and cost-effective solution for the growing commercial market that requires carbon monoxide (CO) detection in addition to traditional fire 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. And, for evacuation signaling, the sounder base can act as part of the system—fully synchronized to other System Sensor horns and horn strobes in the facility. Traditionally, meeting smoke and CO requirements for these applications would call for installing up to six devices, along with all associated junction boxes, addresses on the loop, and labor and material costs. And, to the building occupant, three of the devices—a separate CO detector, a separate smoke detector, and a mini horn—would occupy space on the wall or ceiling, making for an aesthetically unappealing solution. 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.
