The BEAM200 and BEAM200S intelligent reflected beam smoke detectors are designed to be used with UL Listed compatible control panels only. Since all of the wiring is connected to one side, the installation of the single-ended reflective design is much easier than dual-ended projected beam detectors. Alignment is accomplished quickly via an optical sight and a 2 digit signal strength meter incorporated into the product. Listed for operation from –22°F to 131°F, the BEAM200 detector can be used in open area
applications to provide early warning in environments where temperature extremes exceed the capability of other types of smoke detection.
The BEAM200 smoke detector includes one wired transmitter/receiver unit and one reflector. When smoke enters the area between the unit and the reflector it causes a reduction in the signal. The alarm is activated when the smoke level reaches the predetermined threshold.
The BEAM200 device has four standard sensitivity selections along with two Acclimate™ settings. When either of the two Acclimate settings are selected, the
detector automatically adjusts its sensitivity using advanced software algorithms to select the optimum sensitivity for the specific environment.
The BEAM200S model is equipped with an added feature, an integral sensitivity test feature that uses a test filter attached to a Servo motor inside the detector
optics. Using the remote test station RTS151, the motor is activated and moves the filter in the pathway of the light beam, thereby testing detector sensitivity.
This integral sensitivity test feature allows the user to quickly and easily meet the annual maintenance and test requirements of NFPA 72.
