ESP’s MAGDUO FlexiPoint – Seven Fire Detectors In OneFeatured Products
Posted by: electime 9th December 2019
The launch of ESP’s MAGDUO Two-Wire Fire Alarm System earlier this year, added a totally new collection of products to the company’s growing MAGfire Fire Protection range. MAGDUO sits alongside the existing MAG Conventional Fire Alarm products and the MAGPRO Addressable range – fulfilling the increasing demand from customers for this latest technology.
An essential component product for the MAGDUO Two Wire Fire System is the FlexiPoint detector device which brings a high degree of flexibility, versatility and convenience due to the inbuilt programmable options it offers.
The MAGDUO FlexiPoint is a plug-in style smoke detector that utilises a photo-electric sensing chamber to make a measurement corresponding to smoke density. The device also incorporates a thermistor sensing circuit to allow for accurate heat measurement. These elements allow the device to be configured to a smoke, heat or combined setting.
As well as offering 7 different modes of fire detection including combined heat and smoke, the FlexiPoint detector is also available with an inbuilt sounder or inbuilt sounder strobe, which will assist with a compact install solution (as the detector and sounder is all-in-one as opposed to separate units).
Due to the different options, FlexiPoint offers convenience to installers, as they will not be required to carry a complete range of devices
The detector offers 7 different programmable detection modes, as well as 3 programmable sound patterns, with 3 volume adjustment levels.
FlexiPoint incorporates a tamper resistant locking mechanism that prevents its removal from the base without the use of a special tool. To remove the device, the tool should be attached over the detector and turned anti-clockwise allowing the detector to be removed from the base.
The installer/user can fit one FlexiPoint instead of separate detector, sounder and strobe, which is labour intensive and can be aesthetically undesirable.
