With an Infra-Red light, smoke entering the chamber housing will cause the light to reflect onto a sensor which then activates the alarm.
The colour of the internal chamber has been carefully chosen as a grey colour so dust is less visible and has less of an impact. The low-profile detector also features drift compensation which means that slow environmental changes, including dust build-up, don’t affect its performance. Plus it features a sensor self-test function for improved reliability.
With an Omni-view indication light which is visible from 360°, this means it can be installed in any orientation, which is the red ring visible in the pictures. This shows when the alarm is activated, or flashes to show it is communicating with the control panel, although this is controllable. Needing a detector base, sold separately, the EV-P detector fits Nittan and Nittan protocol systems and is addressed using a handheld programming tool.
For hotels, flats and hospitals, you may want to consider the Nittan EV-DP Dual Optical Detector, which uses two optical sensors to help prevent false alarms.
