Nearly invisible smoke detector 500 series from Bosch

Ottobrunn (Germany)

Bosch Security Systems´ nearly invisible smoke detector 500 series from Bosch has compatibility with most four-wire fire alarm panels. It offers optical and CO sensing and is automatically adapted according to the level of contamination The unit is designed for flush mounting and has 16 color inserts for virtual invisibility

Bosch Security Systems is expanding its wide range of smoke detectors with the 500 Series conventional range. Compatible with most four-wire fire alarm panels, the 500 Series is ideal for both renovated and new buildings as well as retrofitting or extension projects. The flat faceplate and lens allow easy cleaning as well as flush ceiling mounting. Flush mounting and a choice of 16 color inserts for white or transparent faceplates ensure virtual invisibility - important for the aesthetics of interior design. Dual optical sensors and a pollution sensor achieve an exceptionally high level of reliability.
The 500 Series conventional version is available in four models. All of them operate with two optical (smoke) sensors and two with optical and CO sensors. The CO sensor model primarily detects carbon monoxide produced by a fire, but it can also detect the presence of hydrogen and nitrogen monoxide. All sensor signals are continually analyzed by the built-in signal evaluation electronics and interlinked through algorithms. Linking the optical and CO sensors means that an alarm will only be triggered if the signal combination corresponds with the detector's characteristic diagram. This ensures minimal occurrence of false alarms as well as expanding the number of application possibilities, for instance in dusty environments.

Contamination build-up from dirt and dust is automatically monitored by the pollution sensor. The threshold value of the detector is automatically adapted according to the level of contamination build-up. If the build-up reaches a level where it completely obstructs the lens, a signal is sent to the control panel and simple cleaning action can be taken. Moreover, an anti-masking sensor will send a signal to the fire alarm control panel if the detector becomes covered.
The Smoke detector 500 Series has reached international recognition for its innovative technology, accumulating until now eight awards, and has recently received in the U.S. the SIA´s (Security Industry Association) "Product Achievement Award".

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.

ISO releases sector specific cyber security standards

With cyber threats on the rise putting businesses and industries at risk, it is more important than ever that organisations protect their information and that of their customers. As a consequence of this, the ISO and IEC standard for information security, ISO/IEC 27001, has become more widely used. A new standard just published will take that a step further, helping to apply the requirements of this flagship standard to specific sectors.
