Paper Abstract

The problem of early fire detection in areas classified as potentially explosive is considered in this paper. These include, for example, some types of facilities and plants, which may cause environmental disasters in case of fires. Hard safety requirements impose serious terms for the technical performance the detectors for the protection of such objects from the fire. Detector itself should not cause a fire. The main danger is open conductive parts in the construction of the sensitive elements of detectors, which can lead to the generation of sparks and fire. The using of fiber-optic technology allows creating smoke and heating fire detectors, which only the sensors will be located in the protected area, and all electronic components generate signals and their processing may be removed at considerable distances measured by kilometers. The block diagram of the fire smoke point detector based on fiber-optic technology is considered, the mathematical description of the propagation of optical radiation through the sensing element of the detector is provided, sensitivity is analyzed.
