Protectowire Linear Heat Detector is a proprietary cable that detects heat conditions anywhere along its length. Alpha Fire and Security Alarm can supply all ranges of alarm temperatures and jacket models to suite a vast array of fire detection applications.

The Wire

Type EPC Protectowire consists of a durable flame retardant vinyl outer jacket; it is a multi-purpose wire for use in both commercial and industrial applications. EPC has low moisture absorption, excellent flexibility at low temperatures and provides resistance to a variety of chemicals. The EPR series is UV stabilized to improve weathering performance and contains an extruded flame retardant jacket of polypropylene elastomer. The type of linear heat detector is intended for industrial applications and is characterized by good abrasion resistance, high resiliency, and exceptional high temperature performance. EPR is recommended over EPC or EPN for better overall performance when higher ambient temperatures are present.

Type TRI linear heat detector can separate pre-alarm and alarm signals using a unique dual temperature detector. Once each activation temperatures is reached different signals can be sent to the control panel. This linear heat detector is built with a durable vinyl outer jacket which features excellent flexibility, flame retardant, low moisture absorption, resistance to many common chemicals.

Type XCR utilizes a high performance Fluoropolymer jacket that is suited for use in extreme environments. The flame retardant, low smoke XCR jacket provides excellent abrasion resistance and mechanical properties over a broad range of temperatures. XCR provides outstanding chemical and permeation resistance to a wide variety of acids, bases, and organic solvents, in addition to simple gases. upon outdoor exposure to sunlight and weather the jacket exhibits very little change in tensile properties.

Protectowire Type XLT is for use in cold storage facilities and other applications that require a low alarm activation temperature. This detector has been UL and FM tested to -60°F (-51°C). The outer jacket consists of a proprietary flame retardant polymer providing superior low temperature environmental performance, low moisture absorption, and good chemical resistance.

The CONTROL PANELS

SRP4x4The SRP-4x4 is FM Approved and UL Listed as a Fire Alarm/Releasing Control Panel. It is primarily designed as a releasing panel for Pre-action and Deluge water-based extinguishing systems, but can also be used as a stand alone Fire Alarm Control Panel. The SRP-4x4 is ideally suited for commercial and light industrial applications.

2000HDThe FireSystem 2000 is a non-coded fire alarm control panel, that is fully supervised and can be ordered in multiple zone configurations. The modular design of the control panels feature individual control modules built to meet specialized system requirements for commercial, institutional, and light industrial applications. The FireSystem 2000 is both UL listed and FM approved, while conforming to applicable NFPA 72 requirements for local and auxiliary protective signaling systems. When properly configured as part of a proprietary fire alarm system, it is capable of sprinkler supervisory service, waterflow alarm, pre-action sprinkler or deluge system release. A variety of enclosure types are suitable for different installation environments.

2600HD The 2600HD is a fully supervised, fire control panel available in multiple zone custom configurations. The system is FM approved and conforms to applicable NFPA 72 requirements for local and auxiliary protective signaling systems. When properly configured as part of a proprietary fire alarm system, it is capable of sprinkler supervisory service, waterflow alarm, pre-action sprinkler or deluge system release.
