The Series 65 range of conventional detectors incorporates well-proven sensing technologies, together with advances in materials and electronics technology.
The A1R heat detector operates by using a matched pair of thermistors to sense heat. One thermistor is exposed to the ambient temperature, the other is sealed.
In normal conditions, the two thermistors register similar temperatures, but, on the development of a fire, the temperature recorded by the exposed thermistor will increase rapidly, resulting in an imbalance of the thermistors and causing the detector to change to the alarm state.
The A1R is a rate-of-rise detector, designed to detect a fire as the temperature increases, but it also has a fixed upper limit at which the detector will go into alarm if the rate of temperature increase has been too slow to trigger the detector earlier.
