The Silent Knight IDP-FIRE-CO-IV 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. Also, 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.
Released through the incomplete burning of various fuels, CO is a colorless, odorless, and deadly gas that is virtually impossible to detect with the human senses. 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 IDP-FIRE-CO-IV is list to the UL 2075 standard for system-connected life safety carbon monoxide monitoring
The Silent Knight IDP-FIRE-CO-IV should be used in conjunction with the B200S intelligent sounder base (sold separately), which can generate either a Temp 3 pattern for fire or a Temp 4 pattern for CO alarm indication. With each sounder base carrying a unique address, the FACP can then command an individual sounder, or a group of sounders, to activate. The command set from the panel can be tailor to the specific event, allowing selection of tone, and group.
