HOCHIKI ATG-EA Heat Sensor
The HOCHIKI America ATG-EA Sensor provides accurate temperature measurement data to the fire alarm control panel. This sensor is particularly suited to environments where smoke detectors are unsuitable because of the precense of system or cooking fumes such as in a kitchen.
STANDARD FEATURES • Low Profile – Only 2.0″ high, including base • Simple and reliable device addressing method • Uses the noise immune Digital Communication Protocol (DCP), which utilizes interrupts for fast response to fires • Adjustable threshold temperature 135°F – 150°F (determined by panel)
The ATG-EA Heat sensor incorporates a highly linear thermistor circuit, with the thermistor mounted externally. The specially designed cover protects the thermistor while allowing maximum air flow. The thermistor circuit produces a voltage proportional to temperature which is scaled, and transmitted as a digitally encoded value to the control panel. When the ambient temperature exceeds a pre-programmed threshold (fixed temperature), the sensor transmits an interrupt to the control panel indicating a fire alarm. The fire alarm control panel can adjust the sensor threshold for different Standard’s requirements. Up to 127 devices are permitted on each loop. A sensor address can be set by a hand-held programming unit. The sensor mounts to an electronics free base and incorporates a locking mechanism secure installation. The base provides mounting slots, terminals for field wiring, and a third contact for a remote indicator/LED. The sensor incorporates dual LED’s for easy viewing of sensor status.
