The radio smoke detector DOW1171 works in line with the scattered light principle.
An infrared LED sends short, intense light pulses to the scattering volume. The
orifices shield the light receiver from direct rays of light and reflexes. Penetrating
smoke particles scatter the light on the light receiver. The signal of the light
receiver is evaluated by the electronics.
Algorithms evaluate the smoke density and the probabilities of alarms are
forwarded by the microprocessor.
