The VF5601 Discovery Photoelectric detector uses the same outer case as the ionization smoke detector and is distinguished by the indicator LEDs which will ﬂash when the detector is in standby state and steady red in alarm. The housing is white polycarbonate and will not fade. Terminals are nickel plated stainless steel.
Within the case is a printed circuit board which, on one side, has the light-proof chamber with integral gauze surrounding the optical measuring system and, on the other, the signal processing and communications electronics. An infra-red light emitting diode is arranged at an obtuse angle to the photo-diode. The photo-diode has an integral daylight-blocking ﬁlter. The IR LED emits a burst of light every second. In clear air the photodiode receives no light directly from the IR LED, because of the angular arrangement and the chamber Baﬄes. When smoke enters the chamber it scatters light from the emitter IR LED onto the photo-diode in an amount related to the smoke characteristics and density. The photo-diode signal is processed to provide an analog value for transmission when the detector is interrogated.
