New detector can take a punch

Edwards Signaling 8/24/2016

New detector can take a punchThe new Edwards Signaling 30-3013 explosionproof smoke detector is a high performance optical smoke sensing device that is Class I, Division 1 and IECEx Zone approved for use in hazardous locations. It is corrosion-resistant and features a non-conducting aluminum alloy retaining ring that protects the detector sensor against the effects of explosions and other catastrophic events.

In addition to its explosion-resistant properties, the Edwards Signaling 30-3013 also meets IP44 ingress protection standards, making it ideal for onshore and offshore petroleum extraction facilities.

The 30-3013’s advanced optical detector features a sensor module that is hot-swappable and intrinsically safe while powered. This allows maintenance work to be performed without having to declassify the protected area as a hazardous location.

An integrated Trouble relay helps to ensure that the Edwards Signaling 30-3013 detector always performs as expected. On-board Alarm and Auxiliary relays integrate easily with EDWARDS fire systems, as well as auxiliary equipment such as dampers and door closers.

The Edwards Signaling 30-3013 Hazardous Location Smoke detector replaces the Edwards Signaling V9006-0001-013 detector, which is now obsolete.
