Linear Thermal Detector

The Linear Thermal Detector (LTD) is a twin conductor cable with a heat-sensitive covering protected by an outer sheath. In a fire or overheat condition, the heat sensitive covering melts, causing the conductors to short, which alarms the system.

Features

  • Alarm temperature: 177°C/350°F
  • Maximum operating temperature: 105°C/221°F
  • Continuous detection over complete length of sensor
  • Simple assembly using suitable fixings (e.g. cable ties or P clamps)
  • LTD spacers protect against damage
  • Continuous line monitoring using Kidde end of line connector
  • Provides alarm signal to Kidde controllers

Details
Activation occurs when the temperature-sensitive insulation on the two internal wires melt shorting the wires together. Detector is routed within hazard area.

Specifications
Minimum bend radius-           3 in./75mm
Nominal current draw-           0mA
Alarm temperature-               350°F/177°C
