Detecting the occurrence of the fireball at its incipient stage, when size and energy emitted by it are small enough to be controlled by suppression, is a critical factor in automatic fire protection systems. An electro-optical sensor is the quickest means to identify a fire. A special UV/IR combination provides greater sensitivity and higher speed of response while providing a high immunity to false alarms.  IR3 optical detectors are suitable for use in the engine compartment of military vehicles as well as for fire detection outside the vehicle.

The Spectrex Military optical IR3 detector is the latest model being installed in military tactical and combat vehicles. PN 760102

This unit can govern both the troop compartment and the engine compartment system components, eliminates the need for a separate control box, reduces cabling and is cost effective without degrading performance and reliability. The unit is ideal for small vehicles.
PN 708422

Heat detectors that are normally slower in response to fire are used in confined areas where optical detectors cone of vision is obstructed and in areas where optical detectors maybe blinded by dirt and radiation absorbing materials.

PN 709470

Heat wire detectors that are normally slower in response to fire are used in constricted areas where the optical detector's cone of vision is obstructed and also in areas where optical detectors may be blinded by dirt and radiation absorbing materials.
