Due to their robust casing and assembly technology, they can be used in
areas where a hazardous explosive atmosphere can arise when air and
combustible gases, steams or fog mix, or one which results from a cloud
of combustible dust in the air. The intelligent, platform-based and
microprocessor-controlled heat detector can be connected without a
safety barrier to the central fire alarm system using normal cables.
