RADION wireless from Bosch provides the range, scalability and exceptional battery life required to ensure reliable performance and superior quality. Advanced diagnostics and multiple device enrollment options make installation and maintenance simple and cost effective. With a complete line of peripherals, RADION provides the flexibility for virtually any application requirement.
RADION smoke is a photoelectric (RFSM-A version also includes “dual fixed/rate-of-rise on” functionality) wireless detector that transmits alarm signals to the wireless receiver when smoke is detected.
The detector’s built-in 85 dBA sounder initiates an alarm signal and an RF signal indicating the alarm condition is sent when the detector goes into alarm
mode. The receiver signals the control panel identifying the specific detector in alarm. Alarm conditions are non-latching so if the alarm condition goes away (smoke dissipates), the detector returns to a normal state.
The photoelectric smoke detector continuously acquires ambient obscuration data as it monitors the surrounding environment. The red LED blinks every time a sample is taken. If any one sample is above the calibrated alarm threshold, two more samples are taken at 4 second intervals. If all three samples are above the calibrated alarm threshold, the detector goes into alarm mode.
The LED and sounder indicate the status of the detector but not of the RF signaling circuitry. Under normal conditions, the red LED flashes regulary while the sensor monitors the surrounding environment. When the sensor detects smoke, the LED changes from flashing to steady ON and the sounder produces a loud, continuous tone.
Test Silence button operation
A Test Silence button allows for performance of the sounder and sensitivity tests and silencing of alarm sounder and trouble chirp.
The detector has built-in drift compensation that allows the alarm to adjust sensitivity automatically as it becomes dirty over time. The drift compensation
feature dramatically increases the time between cleanings, as well as reducing the chance of a nuisance alarm.
