Key Features

  • Anti-fog lens and reflector
  • EN54-12:2015 approved
  • Range of up to 160 metres
  • Self-aligning
  • Automatic drift compensation


The Fire Beam Xtra is an advanced beam detector. The Fire Beam Xtra self-aligns itself to the centre of the reflector when commissioning and will automatically keep alignment when building movement occurs. Its enhanced optics can cover distances of up to 160 metres and, thanks to completely new linear stepper motors, can be commissioned five times faster than the original Fire Beam. 

Automatic alignment takes just over three minutes to complete out of the box and routine realignment can be carried out in just over one minute. 

Auto alignment can be turned off for environments that may be subject to occasional contamination (such as theatres using fake smoke). This means that the detector won’t try to re-align itself should the reflector become obscured. An auto-align time delay is also available for environments that might suffer occasional short-term obscuration. By adding a delay, the beam will not check if the received signal drops for a predetermined time. 

The Fire Beam Xtra supports seven different languages: English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch and Czech.

In environments where warm air meets a cold surface, condensation can occur on the Fire Beam’s lens and reflector. This makes it difficult for the detector to determine whether or not smoke is present. 

Fire Beam Xtra Beam Detector, Anti-fog provides all the benefits of Fire Beam Xtra, but with an anti fog lens and reflector that feature a special nano coating that prevents condensation from forming. 

The Kit

The Fire Beam Xtra Kit comes complete with the head unit with anti-fog lens, a low level controller, a single anti-fog reflector, a user manual and a 3mm allen key. This will enable you to cover distances up to 70 metres. To cover distances over 70 metres a Range Kit can be added to extend the coverage up to 160 metres.
