The Fireray ® 3000 Exd is ideally suited for the protection of large
areas, with potentially explosive atmospheres, against smoking fires.
Fireray ® 3000 Exd comprises an infrared transmitter and a receiver,
both of which are ATEX-certified for use in Class 1 Div 1 Group
2 hazardous areas. There is a separate, safe area, wall-mounted
remote/low level control unit to allow adjustment and testing from a
convenient non-hazardous location.
The product is designed for large enclosures within oil rigs, refineries, ordnance stores and similar premises. It provides an early warning of smouldering or strongly smoke-generative fires, which may not be picked up by flame detectors installed in many hazardous areas.
- Separate transmitter and receiver unit certified to Exd
- Allows for 2 Detectors per System Controller
- Range 5 to 100 metres, (16.4042ft to 328.084ft) configurable per set of Detectors
- Integral Laser Alignment in Receiver
- 2-wire Interface between Controller and Receiver
- Separate Fire and Fault Relays per Detector
- Remote/low Level Controller with LCD display (Safe Area)
- Programmable Sensitivity and Fire/Fault delay
- Automatic Gain Control (AGC) for drift compensation
- First Fix concept for Transmitter, Receiver and Controller
- Multiple cable gland knockouts for ease of wiring
- Transmitter can be powered from Controller
- Complies with ATEX and EN54:12
- Light Cancellation Technology
The Fireray ® 3000 Exd complies with the ATEX directive.

The Transmitter head emits a narrow beam of infra-red light to an associated Receiver head. Once smoke crosses through and thus obscures the IR beam path, the signal strength at the Receiver drops below a preset level which in turn results in an alarm condition.
The Fireray ® 3000 Exd has been designed so that it can be installed by one operator, with its laser assisted alignment method combined with easy to use alignment LEDs offering visual feedback. Integrated laser alignment aid can be activated at the Controller.
The Fireray ® 3000 Exd also has a feature which allows for the Transmitter to be powered from the Controller by wiring directly, thus reducing the number of power supplies required.
The low level Controller incorporates a LCD display, which offers a full icon-based, easy-to-use interface unit. This Controller enables ease of commissioning, testing and maintenance of the beam detection system. During commissioning the detector’s fire sensitivity thresholds can be selected, along with the user variable time to fire and time to fault settings.
The system is fully compliant with the requirements of RoHS and WEEE.
