The HM-PSE-UL addressable, low-profile plug-in photoelectric detectors use a state-of-the-art photoelectric sensing chamber with communications to provide open area protection – used exclusively with Fire Alarm Control Panels (FACPs). Since these detectors are addressable, they will help emergency personnel quickly locate a fire during its early stages, saving precious rescue time while also reducing property damage. It comes with two LEDs


The HM-PSE-UL uses photoelectric detectors in life safety applications to provide a broad range of fire-sensing features, especially where smoldering fires are anticipated. Ionization detectors are often better than photoelectric detectors at sensing fast, flaming fires.

These detectors are constructed of off-white, fire resistant plastic. HM-PSE-UL plug-in, low-profile smoke detectors are designed to commercial standards and have an appealing design.

HM-PSE-UL plug-in detectors use a detachable mounting base to simplify installation, service, and maintenance. Mount base (all base types) on an electrical backbox which is at least 1.5” (3.81 cm) deep. For a chart of compatible junction boxes, see DF-60059.

HM-PSE-UL has a unique unipolar chamber that responds quickly and uniformly to a broad range of smoke conditions. It can withstand wind gusts up to 4,000 feet-per-minute (20 m/sec.) without sending an alarm level signal. Because of its unipolar chamber, the HM-PSE-UL is approximately two times more responsive than most photoelectric sensor – offering enhanced stability.
