What is Detect3D?
Detect3D is the state-of-the-art fully three-dimensional fire and gas mapping software. Using the integrated design environment, line-of-sight flame detectors, IR point, and open-path gas detectors as well as toxic and acoustic detectors can be interactively positioned and oriented within any geometry. Obstructions to flame detector's field-of-view (FOV) are accurately calculated in full 3D by casting then-of-thousands of rays from each detector location. The user can easily identify zero-coverage zones and interactively adjust the position or orientation of the detectors to receive real-time feedback, to quickly design the best performing fire and gas detector layouts.
The purpose of Detect3D is to minimize the risk of undetected fires by:
Why is Detect3D Useful?
Alternative methods for detector positioning use simple 2D overlays which do not accurately account for obstructions and may not highlight areas where fires could occur and not be detected. Detect3D accounts for all obstructions in a 3D environment with high accuracy.
It is important to reduce the risk of fires in facilities and having accurate detection of fires and gas leaks is a major component for reducing that risk. Detect3D calculates the effectiveness of detector layouts, identifies regions of concern and provides the tools necessary to improve the detector placement and orientation, thus reducing the risk of non-detection. By placing flame and gas detectors more effectively, the risk will be reduced, and the cost may even be lowered as in some instances fewer detectors are required to provide the same level of coverage.
