The AD355(A) ADAPT® detector is an intelligent, addressable, multi-sensing, low-profile detector designed for use with Fire•Lite Fire Alarm Control Panels. The ADAPT detector uses a combination of photoelectric and thermal sensing technologies to increase immunity to false alarms. Unlike traditional intelligent detectors, the ADAPT detector has a microprocessor in the detector head that processes alarm data. As a result, the ADAPT detector adjusts its sensitivity automatically, without operator intervention or control panel programming. Areas where the ADAPT detector is especially useful include office complexes, schools, college campuses, manufacturing and industrial facilities, and anywhere else the use of a particular area may change. The ADAPT detector automatically adjusts its sensitivity to the environment. LiteSpeed™ is a communication protocol developed to greatly enhance the speed of communication between analog intelligent devices and compatible systems. Intelligent devices communicate in a grouped fashion. If one of the devices within the group has new information, the panel’s CPU stops the group poll and concentrates on single points. The net effect is response speed greater than five times that of earlier designs.
The AD355(A) plug-in detector uses a separate base to simplify installation, service, and maintenance. A special tool allows maintenance personnel to plug-in and remove detectors without using a ladder. Suitable mounting base boxes include: • 4.0" (10.16 cm) square box. • 3.5" (8.89 cm) or 4.0" (10.16 cm) octagonal box. • Single-gang box (except relay or isolator base). NOTE: The AD355(A) detector has the unique ability to adjust sensitivity according to the environment, based on heat and smoke levels. Avoid installing these detectors in locations that are susceptible to rapid and high temperature changes.
