Heat detector measures changes in heat or fire. When heat is sensed by the heat detector, it generates an alert signal for the fire alarm control panel to warn the building occupants or protection system to extinguish.
Types of Heat Detectors
Rate-of-rise or (ROR) Heat Sensor
ROR heat detectors work on the rapid increase in the element temperature of around 12°F – 15°F per minute. This rise in temperature does not depend on the initial temperature. ROR thermal detectors work on the principle of thermistors or thermocouples.
Fixed temperature thermal detectors work when the element that is sensitive to heat reaches the point where a solid changes to liquid. The heat is accumulated at the sensitive element due to a thermal lag. This causes the temperature of the device to reach its operating temperature a while after the surrounding air temperature exceeds the device temperature. When this happens, the detector is activated and an alarm is sounded.

Heat Detector Working Principle
Heat sensors generally detect the heat that comes as a result of combustion. The devices trigger an alarm when they sense a rapid rise in temperature or when a certain temperature is reached.
Advantages of Heat Detector
Advantages of Rate-of-Rise Thermal detection
- Responds faster than the fixed temperature detector
- Not affected by dusty or dirty environments
- More reliable than smoke detector units
- Less expensive than smoke detector units
- Minimal maintenance
Disadvantages of Rate-of-Rise Thermal detection
- Slower to respond than smoke detectors
- Will not detect products of combustion
- Only suitable for protection of property
