The Amerex Advantage - Fire Detection Options

Linear Heat Detection

Linear Heat Detection cables have long been the industry standard and provide a continuous heat detection cable run inside the hazard area.

The Amerex Advantage has amped up the traditional cable with a more robust abrasion resistant outer jacket and factory installed connectors for reliability and ease of service.

The cable is also available with a stainless steel wire protective covering for extreme environments.

Spot Heat Detection

Spot Heat Detectors are available in three different preset temperature settings for flexibility and provide rapid heat detection and system activation.

Spot Heat Detectors have factory installed connectors for reliability and ease of installation and service.

Optical Flame Detector

The AMEREX Optical Flame Detector technology is the fastest responding flame detection in the industry, responding to fire within seconds.

Faster response time means less damage and less downtime. Amerex Optical Detectors “see” the fire by recognizing the light wavelength patterns given off by the hydrocarbon fire.
