The IntelliQuad PLUS FCO-851 Advanced Multi-Criteria Fire/CO Detector is a plug-in, addressable device that provides both fire and carbon monoxide (CO) detection. For fire, the detector combines four separate sensing elements in one
unit (smoke, CO, light/flame, and heat) to sense multiple components of a fire. This approach enables enhanced sensitivity to real fire with heightened immunity to nuisance particulate. For CO, the detector’s electrochemical sensing cell creates a separate signal for life safety CO detection.
CO is a colorless, odorless, and deadly gas that is virtually impossible to detect with the human senses. Released whenever carbon-based fuels (from fossil fuels to firewood) burn without enough oxygen to form CO2. Because the potential exists for dangerous levels of CO to accumulate in almost any building, legislation mandating the use of CO detection in commercial spaces continues to increase across the U.S. and Canada. The FCO-851 listed to the UL 268 standard for smoke detectors as well as the UL 2075 standard for system-connected life safety carbon monoxide monitoring.
The FCO-851(A) should be used in conjunction with the B200S(COA) intelligent sounder base, which can generate either a Temp 3 pattern for fire or a Temp 4 pattern for CO alarm indication.
