Controlling False Fire Alarms in Care Homes with AlarmCalm

False and unwanted fire alarms are one of the big issues in fire safety and building management today.
The care home and social care industry in particular has unique needs when it comes to false alarm management (FAM). To meet these needs, fire industry leader Advanced has released a new document that shows the potential of automatic fire systems to help reduce unwanted alarms in these settings.

The document outlines the features of Advanced’s AlarmCalm FAM upgrade and its key components, as well as providing an overview of the areas within care homes where different false alarm strategies may be required, based on risk, building design and resident needs.

AlarmCalm is a total package and features enhanced firmware, comprehensive configuration software for Advanced’s fire systems and new intelligent alarm acknowledgement devices called AlarmCalm Buttons. It provides total, easily-managed control over alarm verification periods and investigation delays to outputs.

It allows a site to be divided into false alarm management zones called building areas (up to 200 per panel or 40,000 per network). These are virtual areas used for FAM programming that by default match fire zones but can be set independently to cover multiple zones and points or individual points. The use of building areas makes even complicated cause-and-effect easy to set up.

There is growing awareness of the role that care home staff can play in helping to reduce unwanted false alarms. Advanced’s intelligent, loop-powered alarm acknowledgement device, the AlarmCalm Button, can be used to manually verify if an alarm signal is false, for example from smoke as a result of cooking or heat in the kitchen.

By pressing the AlarmCalm Button, a staff member initiates a ‘second stage’ verification time and (optionally), the local sounder can be silenced. If after the second stage time the signal has cleared, the system will reset to normal conditions. If the signal in the detector is still present, a full fire condition will be signalled. During the second stage period, a fire condition is also indicated if the alarm is confirmed by another method such as sensitivity change or second detector. AlarmCalm Buttons can only extend verification time once (before a system reset). If a real fire ensues, a full fire condition will be signalled.

Advanced believes AlarmCalm is the most easily installed and configured FAM system available. AlarmCalm Buttons are easy to install on the loop and recognised in the panel software on auto learn. They are compatible with a standard UK single-gang back box, can be flush or surface mounted and include a configurable LED, buzzer and slide-in label.

Sounders, beacons and relays in each building area can be operated during the verification period and can be quickly set by all devices of each type or individually by point. Sounder ringing styles are also fully configurable and can use a different tone during verification and alarm periods.

The same approach in the software is taken with investigation delays to outputs, meaning a full FAM strategy can be easily set up and configured. AlarmCalm is currently available on Advanced’s EN54 2, 4 & 13 approved MxPro 5 and Axis EN fire systems.

Sensorex Differential pH/ORP Sensor – Direct Replacement Series

SD7000 Series pH/ORP Differential Sensors from Sensorex suited to water, wastewater, environmental scrubber and other challenging process applications.

Sensorex’s new SD7000 Series Differential pH/ORP sensors provide industrial and municipal water treatment operators with a unique, yet proven sensor technology, with overall low cost of ownership. The SD7000CD and SD7000CD-ORP are a cost-effective and chemically-resistant direct replacement option for Hach / GLI and Water Analytics / Aquametrix analog 5-wire pH and ORP sensor models. These differential pH and ORP sensors are ideally suited for industrial and municipal wastewater treatment and neutralization; metal finishing and plating, wet fume scrubbers; chemical processing; and other online water quality and process applications.

SD7000 Series sensors are highly accurate, with three electrodes instead of the two found in conventional combination pH and ORP sensors. Solution pH is measured differentially with process and inner reference (surrounded by a known concentrated pH 7 buffer) electrodes, compared to a third ground electrode. This provides optimal measurement accuracy, minimizes reference junction potential, and eliminates sensor ground loop effects. Less maintenance for operators, minimized down time, longer sensor life and overall greater reliability are hallmarks of this differential sensor design.

SD7000 Series sensors offer unmatched accuracy and reliability with an encapsulated preamp to eliminate moisture problems and allow for mounting up to 3000 feet from installed pH/ORP transmitters and remote monitoring systems. Their 1.5” NPT convertible threads are provided for sensor mounting into flow tees or adapting to a pipe for process submersion. The Ryton sensor body provides outstanding chemical resistance and the double-junction reference resists contamination to ensure measurement stability.

The internal reference electrode is electrically connected to the process solution by means of a field-replaceable double junction salt bridge which reduces the possibility of contamination. The salt bridge and standard pH 7 cell solution can be replaced periodically at a very low cost, making the SD7000 differential sensor very economical to maintain.

To learn more about the SD7000 Series Differential pH/ORP Sensors and the company’s full range of analytical sensing products, visit Sensorex at: www.Sensorex.com, or contact India Sales Manager, Mr. T.A. Kumar on +91 93870 64044 or e-mail ta.kumar@sensorex.com

Ocean Optics Enhances Capabilities of NIRQuest Series Spectrometers

New replaceable slit design and internal shutter option

Ocean Optics has enhanced the NIRQuest series of small-footprint near-infrared spectrometers. All NIRQuest spectrometer models now come with a replaceable slit design as standard, increasing measurement flexibility with easy user changes in the field. Additionally, the option of adding an internal shutter is now available to more effectively manage light throughput and dark measurements in experiment setups.

The NIRQuest is a robust, reliable spectrometer with a fast response time and good optical resolution over 900-2500 nm to suit applications from moisture detection and chemical analysis to high-resolution laser and optical fiber characterization. Slit size is one of the determining factors in the optical resolution of a spectrometer. The choice inevitably involves design trade-offs: A larger slit increases throughput, but at the expense of optical resolution. A smaller slit yields higher optical resolution, but decreases throughput. The flexibility to adjust the width of the slit helps eliminate these trade-offs by granting users the ability to adapt spectrometer performance in the field, without need for recalibration.

Shutter type is another mechanism to configure a spectrometer for maximum performance in a given application. The NIRQuest’s new internal shutter option is useful for applications where placing an external shutter is difficult, such as emissive setups and probe-based measurements. Internal shutters are also more convenient for applications where light intensities change, requiring users to dynamically adjust integration times and renormalize the spectrometer. The internal shutter improves signal throughput in the setup and allows for shorter integration times for an equivalent level of signal. Operation via software makes shutter control as simple as a few keystrokes, with no extra components or cabling to contend with.

The NIRQuest series includes several models of preconfigured spectrometers, each optimized for optimum response within a specific wavelength range. A custom model is also available, for users who want to select the ideal combination of optical bench components, including gratings, slits and filters for a particular application. External hardware triggering functions allow users to capture data when an external event occurs, or to trigger an event after data acquisition.

To learn more about NIR Quest and Ocean Optics range of spectroscopy solutions, please contact an Ocean Optics Applications Scientist at info@oceanoptics.com, visit the website at www.OceanOptics.com.
