Ineractive Multisensor detector with extended spectrum of detected smokes and with isolator is intended for the automatic fire alarm signalling as a smoke detector in the analogue
and addressable Fire Detection and Fire Alarm System LITES.

The detector combines two principles at its function - it responds to smoke particles on the principle of detection of scattered infrared radiation, and it also responds to temperature
and its changes. Type MHG 862 does not contain an isolator.

The MHG 862i detector is meant for cooperation with the analogue Control and Indicating Equipments (C.I.E.) MHU 110 and MHU 111, MHU 115, MHU 116 and MHU 117, eventually with
the addressable C.I.E. MHU 109. The detector contains a program that evaluates the fire situation pursuant to measuring of surrounding temperature and smoke concentration, namely in agreement with the following adjustable characteristics:

  • sensitivity of the detector; it monitors the surrounding smoke concentration increase compared to the quiescent state, that compensates the climatic and other influences continuously; the sensitivity can be adjusted in three degrees that must be selected with reference to the detectors combustion gas load that the detector responds to
  • reaction time; the verification level of the fire situation is concerned; also adjustable in two degrees, however they can’t be expressed by a simple time stamp, because the reaction time depends on the time progression of the fire situation
  • dustiness look-out; it monitors the rest level of the detector, and upon this it evaluates the dustiness rate of the optical chamber and consequently the reliability of the detector; it canbe turned on or laid up; it’s set in reference to the dust nuisance rate round the detector and to the setting of other parameters
  • the threshold temperature - at this temperature level the fire alarm puts on; it can be set in the interval 45°C - 90°C at 3°C
  • temperature change that leads to an alarm (so-called differential part); it may be set in the interval 10°C - 45°C at 5°C; eventually the reactio n to a temperature change may be not allowed
  • the minimum average speed (steepness) of the temperature increase so that it comes to a respond to the differential part, if it`s allowed; it may be set at c. 3°C/min or 10°C/min
  • the minimum temperature that must be reached at a fire alarm and also at the reaction of the differential part; it can be set from 0°C up to the threshold temperature in seven equidistant steps
  • the way/mode of combining the effects of the optical and the temperature part of the Multisensor detector for the alarm making; the single parts can react either separately (through the program one of the sensors is disconnected), or independent (at least onesensor must signalize), together (both sensors must signalize), or their effects can be summed up.

Further, the pre-alarm sensitivity (it is always higher then the alarm sensitivity) of the optical part can be adjusted. Also the temperature of the temperature part for the pre-alarm signalling in the interval 3°C - 24°C before the alarm can be adjuste d (not on the C.I.E. MHU 109). The detector AB LITES Liberec s.r.o., Oblouková 135 463 03 Stráž nad Nisou, Česká republika
lites.dd:8083 self regulates its internal working characteristics, if they don’t respond to the allowable tolerance, fault warnings occur.

The adjustable characteristics can be set either into the configuration program and recorded to the detector through the C.I.E. (not on the C.I.E. MHU 109), or they can be programmed directly by means of the preparation MHY 535.

The detector has a built-in isolator (MHY 862 does not contain an isolator), that - in case of a short circuit - separates the shortcut part between detectors with connected isolators on the circuit. The detector is installed into the Base MHY 734, or into the Base MHY 734.028 with audible signalling. At the installation it is possible to use the Mounting Bar Stock MHY 736.

The detector fulfils the requirements of the standard specifications ČSN EN 54-5 and ČSN EN 54-7. For its use in the Fire Detection and Fire Alarm System it is liable to the compliance examination according to law No. 22/1997 Col., in wording law No. 71/2000 Col. and the relevant orders of the government.
