The multisensor suction smoke


detector Helios TDS is a detection
system for earliest fire detection.
Helios TDS is an intelligent fire
detector with highest sensitivity.
It detects smallest concentrations
of thermal decomposition products
in the sucked air reliably and
nuisance-safe.

Multisensor suction smoke detector


Helios TDS is especially suitable for
monitoring air conditioned rooms
and other areas, where a reliable
early detection is required:

Immediate detection due to


a highly sensitive sensor system

The optionally available fire gas


detector GMX1002 CO belongs to
a new generation of fire detectors
for an even more reliable early
detection of burgeoning fires.
For the first time developed by
Minimax there is a fire detector
for the detection of smouldering
fires available, which reacts on
carbon monoxide.
Four alarm relays and one malfunction relay with one floating
changeover contact each facilitate
connection to any fire detection
system.
Together with the Minimax fire
detection control panels, single
detector identification can be
realized via MxLoop ring bus
technology.

Multisensor suction smoke detector Helios TDS uses


an optical two-channel laser measuring system for
qualitative and quantitative smoke particle analysis
(twin-detection system). Optionally a CO fire gas detector can be used depending on the monitored fire load.
Air probes of the monitored area are sucked via a
pipework and supplied to the optical measuring
chamber and optionally to the CO fire gas detector
of the Helios TDS.

The air flow is measured with a volume flow sensor and


compared to the adjusted setpoint value. Deviations
(pipe break or choking) of 10% can already be reliably
detected and release an alarm.
The detector measures the laser light scattering caused
by thermal decomposition products at two different
angles and thus, it ensures nuisance-safe detection
of burgeoning fires. Four alarm thresholds can be programmed for the entire measuring range, so that Helios
can be individually adjusted to the basic particle load in
the monitoring room.
