The JA-63ST is a wireless component of the JABLOTRON
ALARMS PROFI and MAESTRO alarm systems. It is used to
detect fire hazards in the interior of residential or commercial
buildings. The detector can be installed in mobile homes or
caravans. The product is not designed to be installed in industrial
premises. The JA-63ST detector uses wireless communication and
it is powered with three AA batteries.
The detector indicates a fire hazard using the built-in LED
indicator and acoustic signalling.
The JA-63ST consists of two independent detectors – an optical
smoke detector and a heat detector. The optical smoke detector
works on the principle of scattered light. It is very sensitive to large
dust particles which are present in dense smoke. It is less sensitive
to smaller particles generated by the combustion of liquids such as
alcohol. That is why the fire detector also contains a built-in heat
detector which has a slower reaction but is much better at detecting fire
which generates only a small amount of smoke.
