Apollo fire detection systems are partnership systems. Detectors
and modules are supplied by Apollo and the control panel by an
independent manufacturer. Please see below for a list of compatible
As a specifier, you may also choose sounders or modules designed
and manufactured by independent suppliers in order to have a system
that best meets the needs of the project.
You make the choice - and choice is at the heart of Apollo's
philosophy. Detectors, sounders, modules and control panel form a
powerful, reliable system.
It is successful because Apollo tests manufacturers' products
for compatibility with Apollo products. These manufacturers submit
their products to Apollo's Technical Sales department which carries
out a full test program. Products that pass all the tests are then
Specifiers can request copies of the test certificates when
designing fire detection systems. This ensures that the different
elements of the system will work perfectly with the others.
What if the products are not tested for
Some manufacturers of modules, sounders, ancillary products and
even control panels falsely claim compatibility with Apollo
detectors and modules.
If these manufacturers cannot produce an Apollo certificate of
compatibility there is no certainty that their products will work
correctly with Apollo products. It is possible that systems made up
of potentially incompatible elements will generate faults or fail
