Apollo introduces Soteria Tri-Sensor detector for advanced triple detection

14 May 2024

APOLLO FIRE Detectors has unveiled its latest breakthrough in fire detection technology with the introduction of the Soteria Tri-Sensor detector. The product integrates cutting-edge dual optical sensing technology with a centrally located heat thermistor and a CO sensor, offering “unparalleled accuracy” in detecting smoke particles, while effectively discriminating against false alarm stimuli.

This triple detection capability ensures swift and reliable identification of genuine fire threats, minimising false alarms and optimising safety protocols.

The Soteria Tri-Sensor detector boasts several unique characteristics:

• Flexibility: Compatible with various system offerings and adaptable to diverse application types

• Integrated isolator and tri-coloured LEDs: Streamlines maintenance and fault-finding processes, saving time and resources

• Exceeding standards: Rigorously tested and approved beyond mandatory regulatory standards, ensuring the “utmost reliability and performance”

• Reliable verification: Incorporates additional sensor and mode types for enhanced reliability verification, including the double-knock verification feature

Key features

• Double-knock verification: Offers technical verification by requiring at least two different sensors, within the Tri-Sensor, to go into alarm before alerting the panel

• CO sensor: Provides an additional layer of false alarm rejection, resulting in a slower response to non-fire stimuli and minimising disruptions

• NT and MT modes: Offers flexibility with NT modes triggering an alarm with detection from any single sensor, while MT modes require detection from multiple sensors to activate an alarm. Ideal for a wide range of settings including prison cells, detention centres, theatres, student accommodation and apartments

The Soteria Tri-Sensor detector ensures high sensitivity and accurate detection across a broad spectrum of fire events. Additionally, EN 54-31 introduces new categories for multi-sensors, distinguishing between MT modes that withstand high levels of a single phenomenon and NT modes that signal an alarm with detection from a single sensor.
