Specialist Environments Technical Manual PP2650/2017/Issue 1

Since 1980 Apollo Fire Detectors Ltd have been designing and manufacturing high
quality fire detection products. These include both conventional and analogue
addressable detectors and interfaces for controlling and monitoring fire protection
systems.
Apollo have a policy of continuous product development and have been able to produce
a large range of products - including those for Specialist Environments, that have
multiple approvals from international approval bodies around the world.
The features of these ranges mean that products give a choice of response modes,
methods of installation and testing that are unique to Apollo.
Apollo’s range of test equipment and accessories help maintain a quality product as
part of a system.
• Specialist products certified to all key international approvals
• Multiple features to satisfy a wide range of requirements and environments
• Localised customer service worldwide
• Open, digital protocol with forward and backwards product compatibility

The Apollo Specialist Environments Technical Manual is designed for use by Specifiers,
Designers and Technicians to give all of the data relevant to the product ranges in one
place.
Designed as individual data sheets, these can be easily removed and copied for inclusion
in specifications and system design packs.
Because it is a loose-leaf document, new products can easily be added and existing
products updated as required without the need for replacing the whole document.
Updates and new product data sheets can be obtained from www.apollo-fire.co.uk

Safety note
In the United Kingdom ionisation smoke detectors are subject to
the requirements of the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2016
and to the Ionising Radiations Regulations 1999 made under the
provisions of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974.
The detectors, independently tested by the Health Protection
Agency (HPA), conform to all the requirements specified in the
‘Recommendations for ionisation smoke detectors in implementation
of radiation standards’ published by the Nuclear Energy Agency
of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development
(OECD) 1977.
There is no limit to the number of ionisation smoke detectors which
may be installed in any fire protection system.
Storage regulations depend upon local standards and legislation,
but in the UK, up to 500 detectors may be stored in any premises,
although are stipulations on storage facilities if more than 100
ionisation detectors are stored in one building.
At the end of their recommended working life of ten years
ionisation smoke detectors should be returned to Apollo for safe
disposal.

Guidance on storage and handling can be given by Apollo Fire

The commissioning engineer simply sets the control panel to Discovery Marine Sounder Visual Indicator Base dimensional
‘Setup’ and then walks from one device to the next to set the drawing
required volume using a magnetic wand, Part No. 29650-001.
When all the devices have been set the control panel is used to
register all the individual volume settings.
The Discovery Marine Sounder Visual Indicator Base offers a choice
of 15 evacuation tones, including the standard Apollo evacuation
tone. One of these tones is selected during commissioning in order
to suit local regulations or customs.
The tones include those required by Dutch, Swedish, German,
Australian, New Zealand and North American standards as well
as the UK.
Whichever evacuation tones is selected there is a secondary tone
which may be used for alerting or warning of a possible evacuation.
In many installations a fire alarm must be raised by switching more
than one sounder visual indicator to alert or alarm simultaneously.
This is achieved with Sounder Visual Indicator Bases by assigning
devices to groups on commissioning, with the group information
being stored in each device. One command will then switch on all
devices in the group.

Triple IR
The triple IR flame detector is also fast reacting but is also tolerant
of fumes, vapours, steam, dust and mist, whilst being unaffected
by arc welding, electrical sparks, lightning, nuclear radiation and
UV light sources. It may, however, be affected by modulated IR
radiation. Triple IR flame detectors are used in waste handling,
colour printing and paper manufacturing situations.

Operation Orbis Marine Optical Smoke Detector dimensional


Orbis Marine Optical Smoke Detectors work on the well established drawing
light scatter principle. The remarkable optical design of the Orbis
Marine Optical Smoke Detector enables it to respond to a wide
spectrum of fires.
The sensing chamber contains an optical sensor which measures
back-scattered light as well as the more usual forward-scattered
light. Sensitivity to black smoke is greatly improved.
The detector is calibrated so that Orbis is highly reliable in
detecting fires, but is much less likely to generate false alarms.
The stability of the detector-high reliability, low false alarm rate
is further increased by the use of algorithms to decide when
the detector should change to the alarm state. This removes the
likelihood of a detector producing an alarm as a result of smoke
from smoking materials or from another non-fire source.

Where to use heat detectors


Heat detectors are used in applications where smoke detectors
are unsuitable. Smoke detectors are used whenever possible
since smoke detection provides earlier warning of fire than heat
detection.
Heat detectors should be used if there is a danger of nuisance
alarms from smoke detectors.

Operation XP95 I.S. Optical Smoke Detector sectional view


The I.S. Optical Smoke Detector uses the same outer case as the
ionization smoke detector and is distinguished by the indicator
LED which is clear in standby and red in alarm. Within the case is a
printed circuit board which on one side has the light proof labyrinth
chamber with integral gauze surrounding the optical measuring
system and on the other the address capture, signal processing
and communications electronics.
An infrared light emitting diode within its collimator is arranged
at an obtuse angle to the photo-diode. The photo-diode has an
integral daylight blocking filter.
The infrared LED emits a burst of collimated light every second.
In clear air the photo-diode receives no light directly from the
infrared LED because of the angular arrangement and the dual
mask. When smoke enters the chamber it scatters photons from
the emitter infrared LED onto the photo-diode in an amount related
XP95 I.S. Optical Smoke Detector dimensions
to the smoke characteristics and density. The photo-diode signal is
processed by the optical ASIC and passed to the A/D converter on
the communications ASIC ready for transmission when the device
is interrogated.

Electrical description
The I.S. Optical Smoke Detector is designed to be connected to a
two wire loop circuit carrying both data and a 14 V to 22 V dc supply.
The detector is connected to the incoming and outgoing supply via
terminals L1 and L2 in the mounting base. A remote LED indicator
requiring not more than 1 mA may be connected between the +R
and L2 terminals. An earth connection terminal is also provided.
The detector is calibrated to give an analogue value of 25±7 counts

Operation
XP95 I.S. Heat Detector dimensional drawing
The XP95 I.S. Heat Detector has a common profile with the
ionisation and optical smoke detectors but has a low air flow
resistance case made of white polycarbonate.
The device monitors heat using a single thermistor network
which provides a voltage output proportional to the external air
temperature.

Electrical description
The Heat Detector is designed to be connected to a two wire loop
circuit carrying both data and a 14 V to 22 V dc supply. The detector
is connected to the incoming and outgoing supply via terminals
L1 and L2 in the mounting base. A remote LED indicator requiring
not more than 1 mA may be connected between the +R and L2
terminals. An earth connection terminal is also provided. The
detector is calibrated to give an analogue value of 25±5 counts at
5OC. This value increases with rising temperature. A count of 55
corresponds to the EN alarm sensitivity level.
When the detector is energized the ASIC regulates the flow of
power and controls the data processing. The thermistor provides
an output over normal operating ranges that is proportional to the
external air temperature. The voltage output is processed in the
analogue to digital converter and stored by the communications
ASIC. It is transmitted to the control equipment when the device
is interrogated. When a count of 55 is exceeded the alarm flag
is initiated and the device address is added to the data stream
every 32 polling cycles from its last polling for the duration of the
alarm level condition, except when an alarming device is being
interrogated. This can provide a location identified alarm from any
device on the loop in approximately two seconds.

Environmental characteristics
The XP95 I.S. Heat Detector range is unaffected by wind or
atmospheric pressure. Standard detectors operate over the
temperature range -20°C to +70°C.

Product information

The XP95 Intrinsically Safe (I.S.) Manual Call Point (MCP) operates
as part of a radial circuit in hazardous areas when connected to a
protocol translator and galvanic barrier.

Operation
When activated, the MCP not only interrupts the polling cycle to
indicate to the fire control panel that it has been operated, but also
reports its address. Thus an alarm and its location can be reported
in less than 0.2 seconds.
An alarm is initiated by pressing he resettable element. An
activated alarm status is indicated by a yellow and black bar in the
lower section of the resettable element and the illumination of the
red LED. The MCP is easily reset from the front using the reset key
supplied with the unit. The XP95 I.S. MCP is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
To reduce installation time all of the installation cabling is wired A transparent hinged cover (Part No. 26729-152) is available for

the MCP.
Note: The XP95 I.S. MCP does not comply to EN 54-11 when fitted with
the hinged cover.

Galvanically Isolated Barrier
Galvanically isolated barriers are also referred to as ‘transformer
isolated dc repeaters’, ‘isolating interfaces’ and ‘transformer
isolated current repeaters’. They differ from conventional shunt
zener barriers in that they provide electrical isolation between
the input (safe area) and the output (hazardous area). This is
acheived by the use of a dc / dc converter on the input side which
is connected to the hazardous area through a voltage and power
limiting resistor /zener combination similar to a conventional
barrier.

Features Orbis I.S. Optical Smoke Detector dimensional drawing


Optical smoke detectors have always been recognised as good
detectors for general use. They are regarded as particularly
suitable for smouldering fires and escape routes.
The performance of Orbis Marine optical detectors is good in black
as well as in white smoke. In this respect Orbis detectors are
different from traditional optical smoke detectors which perform
far better in white smoke than in black.
Orbis I.S. Optical Smoke Detectors are also designed to reduce
significantly the incidence of false alarms through over-sensitivity
to transient phenomena.
Orbis I.S. Optical Smoke Detectors are recommended for use as
general purpose smoke detectors for early warning of fires in
most areas.

Operation
Orbis I.S. Optical Smoke Detectors work on the well established
light scatter principle. The remarkable optical design of the
Orbis I.S. Optical Smoke Detector enables it to respond to a wide
spectrum of fires.
The sensing chamber contains an optical sensor which measures
back-scattered light as well as the more usual forward-scattered
light. Sensitivity to black smoke is greatly improved.
The detector is calibrated so that Orbis is highly reliable in
detecting fires, but is much less likely to generate false alarms.
The stability of the detector-high reliability, low false alarm rate
is further increased by the use of algorithms to decide when
the detector should change to the alarm state. This removes the
likelihood of a detector producing an alarm as a result of smoke
from smoking materials or from another non-fire source.

Where to use heat detectors


Heat detectors are used in applications where smoke detectors
are unsuitable. Smoke detectors are used whenever possible
since smoke detection provides earlier warning of fire than heat
detection.
Heat detectors should be used if there is a danger of nuisance
alarms from smoke detectors.

Choosing the correct class of heat detector


Heat detectors have a wide range of response characteristics
and the choice of the right type for a particular application may
not always seem straightforward. It is helpful to understand the
way that heat detectors are classified as explained earlier and
to memorise a simple rule: use the most sensitive heat detector
available consistent with avoiding false alarms.
In the case of heat detectors it may be necessary to take an
heuristic approach, i.e., trial and error, until the best solution for a
particular site has been found. The flowchart will help in choosing
the right class of heat detector. Construction Products Regulation 305/2011/EU

Operation Orbis I.S. Optical/Heat Multisensor Detector


Orbis I.S. Optical/Heat Multisensor Detectors can be readily used dimensional drawing
instead of optical detectors but should be used as the detector of
choice for areas where the fire risk is likely to include heat at an
early stage in the development of the fire.
The Multisensor detector has two sensors, one for smoke and one
for heat with the alarm decision derived from either sensor or
combination of both.
As with all the Orbis I.S. range of detectors the increased reliability
of detection is combined with high immunity to false alarms.

The Stainless Steel Intelligent IR³ Flame Detector is designed to
protect areas where open flaming fires may be expected.

Operation 82 108

The Intelligent IR³ Flame Detector is sensitive to low-frequency,


flickering infra-red (IR) radiation emitted by flames during
combustion. Since it responds to flickering radiation the IR³ Flame
Detector can operate even if the lens is contaminated by a layer of FIEL D
OF FIRE

oil, dust, water-vapour or ice. VIEW

frequency radiation at 1 to 15 Hz (1 to 2.7 �m) in order to detect all


flickering flames including those invisible to the naked eye, e.g.
those emitted by hydrogen fires.
This detector has a heavy duty, stainless steel housing which
is highly resistant to corrosion. The housing has been electro-
polished to give a natural silver finish and has no need to be
TERMINA L
painted, making it ideal for marine applications. COVER GLAND PLUG

Operation Flame detection as a function of flame size and distance


The UV/IR2 Flame Detector is sensitive to low frequency, flickering from detector
IR and UV radiation emitted by flames during combustion.
The UV/IR2 Flame Detector is set to respond to low-frequency,
flickering IR (0.75 to 2.7 �m) radiation at one to 15 Hz along with UV
(185 nm to 260 nm) in order to detect almost all flames including
those invisible to the naked eye, e.g. hydrogen fires.
The UV/IR2 Flame Detector has two IR sensors that respond to
different IR wavelengths in order to discriminate between flames
and spurious sources of radiation. False alarms from flickering
sunlight, arc welding or lightning are avoided by this combination
of UV and IR signal processing techniques.

detector response meeting the response time requirements for a

Safety note
In the United Kingdom ionisation smoke detectors are subject to
the requirements of the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2016
and to the Ionising Radiations Regulations 1999 made under the
provisions of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974.
The detectors, independently tested by the Health Protection
Agency (HPA), conform to all the requirements specified in the
‘Recommendations for ionisation smoke detectors in implementation
of radiation standards’ published by the Nuclear Energy Agency
of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development
(OECD) 1977.
There is no limit to the number of ionisation smoke detectors which
may be installed in any fire protection system.
Storage regulations depend upon local standards and legislation,
but in the UK, up to 500 detectors may be stored in any premises,
although are stipulations on storage facilities if more than 100
ionisation detectors are stored in one building.

At the end of their recommended working life of ten years


ionisation smoke detectors should be returned to Apollo for safe
disposal.

Guidance on storage and handling can be given by Apollo Fire


Detectors Ltd and full details can be requested from:
