MIL LHSC Interface Module


Military Standard Addressable Analog LHSC Interface Module

This unit is engineered to monitor the status of the Analog Liner Heat Sensing (LHS) cable and communicate the same to the panel. It is powered by the Signalling Line Circuit from the panel and is brought to connection with the Analog LHS cable for monitoring. Apart from monitoring the temperature status of the LHSC, it also reports breakage by using end of line resistor.

Exclusive Features
  • Remote LHS heat sensitivity alteration from the panel
  • Detailed location description settings
  • Address can be changed from the panel
  • Soft addressing
  • Pre alarm
  • Remote test facility from the panel
  • Electrical supervision
  • LED indicator
  • Easy to maintain/service

What are Linear Heat Sensing Cables and how do they work?

Linear Heat Sensing Cables (LHS cables) are heat sensors that offer heat detection through out its length. They can be used at cable trays, storage racks, conveyors etc. for early fire detection, where an installation of a detector device is impractical.

LHS cables are of type Analog and Digital. Each consists of two cores of copper wire with a polymer separating them. They detect heat as the resistivity separating polymer varies in proportion to the temperature in its surveillance.

LHS Interface Units are those that interface communication and settings of the LHS cable with the Control panel.
