Abus smoke detectors provide dual verfication

Muhlhausen, Germany

The new HSRM30000 smoke and heat detector form Abus Security Center uses a bi-sensor processor to monitor both smoke and heat, and therefore provides a doubly reliable alarm when this type of hazard arises.
This means that unlike conventional smoke detectors, it is also suitable for use in difficult locations such as kitchens and bathrooms.

The HSRM30000 can monitor an area of up to 40 m² inside a room and is equipped with a bi-sensor processor. This not only monitors whether smoke is present, but also reacts to the rise in temperature in the event of a fire. This guarantees particularly effective protection, recognising and sounding an early alarm for difficult-to-detect smouldering fires that produce little smoke, but all the more heat. At the same time, there is no chance of misdetection due to water vapour or temperature variations.

Due to its bi-sensor processor technology, the HSRM30000 is suitable for protection in bedrooms, children’s rooms and hallways, and is also ideal for use in kitchens and bathrooms. The Abus smoke and heat detector also has a self-test function that can be used at any time to check that it is working correctly.

The built-in 3-volt lithium battery has a service life of up to twelve years, making it ideal for use in private and commercial buildings. The 88 dB alarm means that the HSRM3000 gives a reliable warning in the event of smoke and heat. The detector is mounted without drilling using the simple hot-meld adhesive method, or using a simple drill-mounting procedure.

How to deliver adequate power to security devices in industrial sites

With security found in more and more industrial settings, advanced and heavy-duty network devices are needed on the edge to make implementations effective. Amid this trend, the first major challenge is to deliver enough power to these devices. Increasingly, traditional PoE standards, IEEE 802.3af/at that deliver 15.4W and 30W of power, are proving insufficient in this regard. A hardened 60W PoE switch, on the other hand, can better the power supply needs of industrial users.

How will Brexit affect the security industry?

As the United Kingdom starts to follow through with the necessary steps to leave the European Union (EU), there could be a number of consequences that filter through to security industry stakeholders. In theory, according to Jim Dearing of IHS Markit who has taken a look at the potential impact, in the short-term the market outlook for 2016 and 2017 should be relatively unaffected.

The U.K. has yet to activate Article 50, which instigates the formal procedure to leave the EU. Only the U.K. Prime Minister can invoke Article 50 to begin the negotiation process, which is expected to take around two years to complete.
