Gen6 Detector

Advanced Technology

Our new Generation 6 MX Addressable Fire Detectors – powered by smart MX Technology – do more than just alert you the second any threat of fire arises. They are built with advanced 2-way infrared technology to make testing and commissioning a breeze. Using our smart hand-held 850 EMT (Engineering Management Tool), you can interrogate detectors effortlessly. Simply point, program and go. That’s right, reliable fire detection at your fingertips just became that easy.

A Fail Safe System You Can Rely On

A malfunctioning fire detector can be more than a nuisance; it can be a real hazard
Thankfully, you can trust the Generation 6 range to keep itself in check.

Better Environmental Performance

Details
  • Better Environmental Performance

  • Newly designed optical chamber screen.
  • Treatment of circuit boards to resist moisture.
  • Fully coated thermistor to resist contamination.

Better Detection Performance

Details
  • Better Detection Performance

  • All input sources are fully monitored to ensure that the detectors are always operating within designed parameters.
  • Discrimination provided by Fastlogic algorithms can reduce false alarms from common sources.
  • Multi-sensor algorithms maximise detector performance in challenging environments.

Greater Fault Tolerance

Details
  • Greater Fault Tolerance

  • In the event of a short circuit fault on the addressable loop the 850 Series built-in short circuit isolator will ensure that all detectors will continue to operate.
  • This improves system integrity and saves the cost of an external isolator.
  • Automatic self test function on all sensor channels.

Safer, Easier & Quicker to Install

Details
  • Safer Easier & Quicker to install

  • Bi-directional infrared communication for 850 series.
  • In hand reporting of status & faults.
  • Working in combination with the new 850EMT service tool the I.R. communications capability will revolutionise commissioning and service.
  • Programming and testing of a detector will be carried out by a single visit to the device.

Lower lifetime Cost

Details
  • Lower Lifetime Cost

  • Dynamic Drift Compensation is used to extend the service life of the detector.
  • Fire and Fault Indication In addition to the familiar 360° red fire LED.
  • The 850 series detectors also have a 360° amber LED indicator that will give a local indication of faults and notify operation of the detector’s built-in short circuit line isolator.

Improve Productivity & Lower Lifetime Cost

At Tyco, it’s our mission to provide smart solutions that help your business grow. That’s why our Gen6 fire detectors are built to be quick, easy and ladder-free. They also feature an Extended 2X Service Life, meaning you benefit from lower costs in the long term.

Safer, Simpler & More Efficient
Than Ever Before.

We understand time is money. That’s why every aspect of our non-proprietary Generation 6 range has been designed to maximise output without compromising safety

Streamline your operations. When it comes to installing, commissioning, testing and troubleshooting, let us help you get the job done right – the first time, every time.

Lower post Installation costs

Using infrared technology, you can rest assured post-installation maintenance, servicing and testing will be super straightforward and easy.

Speed up installation

Comprising a unique Time Saver Mount, you can commission detectors before a ceiling is installed, reducing installation time and saving money on installation and labour costs.

Reduce occupational hazard

Forget about that ladder. Thanks to infrared technology, you can program detectors remotely – with your feet planted safely on the ground.

Get more work done in less time

Test and commission detectors fast. Avoid unnecessary delays, keep your business moving, and turnaround projects (and cashflow) more quickly. Providing you the opportunity to take on new projects quicker to improve business revenue.

Technology Experts

Our non-proprietary products are developed with the world’s best technology experts so you can rely on us for the most advanced solutions to any project.

Reap life long value

Featuring backward and forward capability, you can upgrade without the stress, labour and downtime involved with replacing entire systems.

IR Enabled

Thanks to infrared technology, you can reduce occupational hazard and program detectors remotely – with your feet planted safely on the ground.

Our hand-held 850EMT remote automatically progresses to the next available address, meaning you can service detectors with oustanding ease and efficiency as you go.

Test and commission detectors fast. Avoid unnecessary delays, keep your business moving, and turnaround projects (and cashflow) more quickly.

Using your infrared 850EMT device, check a detector’s analogue values and determine whether it requires changing. All while standing right underneath it.

2-way infrared communication enables you to action changes and resolve faults promptly, without the stress.

Comprising a unique Time Saver Mount, you can commission detectors before a ceiling is installed, reducing installation time and saving money on installation and labour costs.

Using infrared technology, you can rest assured post-installation maintenance will be as straightforward and profitable as possible.

Our Gen6 detectors are designed to log, store and deliver digital data – saving you loads of time normally spent reporting and record keeping.

It’s easy to confirm a detector ID or location. Simply set a test alarm condition from afar with your 850EMT.

Featuring backward and forward capability, you can upgrade without the stress, labour and downtime involved with replacing entire system.

Non-IR Enabled

Without advanced infrared technology, your team has no choice but to install and commission fire detectors slowly using a ladder, increasing chances of falling and injury.

Without the in-built ability to move onto the next device, each fire detector you commission must be onerously configured individually, as if it were part of new system.

Using a ladder dramatically slows down the testing and commissioning process. Your team could be turning around profit at a much faster rate.

Spend needless time going back and forth from your control panel to diagnose whether your detectors need changing or not.

Get stuck wasting time on decommissioning, re-addressing and/or reinstalling your detectors.

No remote control leaves you with no choice but to manually install and commission fire detectors over a much longer period of time.

Manual servicing means spending unnecessary time revisiting and dragging out old projects, when you could be working on new ones.

Without a intuitive system, you’re destined to spend more time reading and writing data than swiftly analysing and acting upon your figures.

One person standing at your fire system panel and another underneath each detector means higher labour costs.

By not employing non-proprietary products, you restrict your options and therefore increase costs when it’s time to service or upgrade your system.
