Heat and smoke test

Heat detectors trigger when they detect high temperatures or temperatures that are rising very quickly. Smoke detectors trigger when they detect smoke. A smoke detector will typically spot a fire faster than a heat detector. However, there are some circumstances where using heat detectors is preferable.

Both used to detect fires. When one of these sensors is connected to an alarm system, when it is engaged it will transmit a notification to the panel. The system will experience an alarm event as a result. All sounders and sirens will go off to warn everyone of this.

There are typically two types of smoke detectors. Ionization and photoelectric smoke detectors. An internal light of a photoelectric smoke detector is how it operates. The light will refractive change as smoke enters the chamber. When the internal light is disturbed, the sensor is instructed to turn on and inform the system. A little amount of radioactive material is sandwiched between two internally electrically charged plates in an ionization smoke detector. Smoke will obstruct the current flow and trigger the sensor if it enters the chamber. Ionization and photoelectric smoke detectors are both quite effective, with photoelectric smoke detectors generally being a little more dependable.

There are also two primary groups for heat detectors. Both fixed and rate-of-rise heat detectors are available. Fixed heat detectors react when they notice an exceptionally high temperature that a fire would only produce. Rate-of-rise heat detectors, on the other hand, react when temperatures rise exceptionally quickly, such as by 10 degrees Fahrenheit in a minute.

The good news is AITO has capable technician that can possess the required abilities and information.
