TrueAlarm analog sensors provide an analog measurement digitally
communicated to the host control panel using Simplex addressable
communications. The control unit analyses the data, determines an average value and stores it. Comparing the sensor's present value
against its average value and time, determines an alarm or other
Intelligent data evaluation
Monitoring each sensor's average value provides a continuously
shifting reference point. A software filtering process compensates for
environmental factors, such as dust and dirt, and component aging, to
provide an accurate reference for evaluating new activity. This filtering
reduces the probability of false or nuisance alarms caused by shifts in
sensitivity, either up or down.
Control unit selection
The control unit stores peak activity for each sensor to assist in
evaluating specific locations. The host control unit determines the alarm
set point for each TrueAlarm sensor, selectable as more or less sensitive
as the individual application requires.
You can program the sensor alarm set points for timed automatic
sensitivity selection, such as more sensitive at night, less sensitive during
day. You can program the control unit to provide multi-stage operation
for each sensor.
Sensor alarm and trouble LED indication
Each sensor base's LED pulses to indicate communications with the unit.
If the control unit determines a sensor is in alarm, is dirty, or has some
other type of trouble, the details are annunciated at the control unit and
the sensor's base LED will turn on steadily. During a system alarm, the
control unit will control the LEDs such that an LED indicating a trouble
will return to pulsing to help identify the alarmed sensors.
- Sealed against rear air flow entry
- Interchangeable mounting
- EMI/RFI shielded electronics
4098-9733 and 4098-9734 heat sensors

TrueAlarm heat sensors are self-restoring and provide rate-
compensated, fixed temperature sensing, you can select with or without
rate-of-rise temperature sensing. Due to its small thermal mass, the
sensor accurately and quickly measures the local temperature for
analysis at the fire alarm control unit.
You can select rate-of-rise temperature detection at the control unit for
either 15°F or 20°F, (8.3°C or 11.1°C) for each minute. Fixed temperature
sensing is independent of rate-of-rise sensing and you can program it
to operate at 135°F or 155°F (57.2°C or 68°C). The 4098-9734 sensor
provides an additional 190°F (88°C) set point.
In a slowly developing fire, the temperature may not increase rapidly
enough to operate the rate-of-rise feature. However, an alarm will be
initiated when the temperature reaches its rated fixed temperature
You can program TrueAlarm heat sensors as a utility device to monitor
for temperature extremes in the range of 32°F to 155°F (0°C to 68°C).
This feature can provide freeze warnings, or alert you to HVAC system
problems. Refer to panel specifications for availability.
